We went to Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion show at Tanglewood in the Berkshires. It’s a blast. Especially when you watch from on stage. The guests this year were Steele sisters and Chris Thiele and Sara Watkins from Nickel Creek. Chris’s mandolin-playing was especially amazing. He played this song and had me feeling utterly talentless. The show was great. Hurrah!
Me & my shadow enjoyed a full day on the beach too. Watermelon, sandwiches, crackers and cheese, orange Izzes, cherries… Steve made sure we were fully stocked for a long day and the weather was just right. The kids are sun-soaked and water-logged and their cheeks are pink with the slightest sunburn. It’s been a good summer to us so far.
