Too much social distanced fun…

We went on a social distanced road trip, this weekend.

We hung w/ amazing people, who, have been quarantined and social distancing… ‘Cept for this…

So, Mike- Back row, right- entered a contest to win a fabulous Bonanza five string ukulele, from Pete-back row, left- and sure as shootin’, Mike won! Dilemma, ship it? Or, wait! Pete had a great idea… ‘Why don’t you come and pick it up?’… Dee-front row, left, in the tie dye- said, ‘bring the Magtones!’… That’s us… So, the plot was hatched… Pete and Dee invited Mike, and his lovely wife Ann-back row, center- and the us, to come to their corner of the world, and spend Thursday-Sunday morning, w/ them…

We arrived Thursday afternoon, and proceeded to join Pete on his Facebook show. How fun… And joined him on the Friday show. Fun! And, the Saturday show… More fun! Great tunes. Fun interaction w/ the peeps on the other side of the camera, and, just hangin’ out w/ all of us…

Dee, a mistress of the kitchen, fed us AMAZING southern food, til we thought we’d gone to food heaven… What a chef, and sweetheart….

There was as much heartfelt conversation around the house, and dinner table, as there was music… It… Does not get much better than that…

Sunday morning, rolled round, and, it was sadly, time to head back north… We shall deeply miss them, IRL, til we get to meet again…

… And so, it begins…

Morning, kids… I’m realizing, again, that, from this point, Labor Day in the USA, that, we are on a downhill slide, so to speak, until January 5th, or so. Summer is winding down, and modding into cooler, darker weather. We’re ramping up for holidays, events, changes, and so many speeding days. We’re getting ready for autumn- a lovely time of year in the midwest, though, I prefer summer- then, Halloween. A BIG holiday for my family. Launch from that into the Thanksgiving season, again, here in the U.S. And then, Yule, Christmas, Solstice, and all the other holidays… The glide into New Years, and then… Quiet and cold…

So, hold onto your whatever, and, here we go!!!
