These guys would barely gave me a second look. After securing several 'safe' shots from my Jeep, I had to get out of the car, walk closer towards them, wave my hand above my head and yell, " Hey y'all, look at me dammit." Finally they did. Snap. This shot.
Lots going on this weekend and next, but there are a couple of happenings that are near and dear to my heart so thought I'd share 'em with you:
2- Mark Smith is Valle Crucis' Hollywood connection. Smith is a screenwriter and director and his newest film is 'Vacancy' starring Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale. The movie opens on April 20th. Watch the trailer. On a personal note, Mark's wife is my friend and birthday buddy. We were both born on April 9, 1963. Our daughters also share the same birthday as well as being spin class fanatics.
3- The Appalachian Roots Revival is next weekend. My paper is sponsoring the event. I will be there.
4- The Boone Music Reunion is next weekend as well. It is a get together of Boone bands from the late 70's-90's. The organizers have worked hard to collect and archive mp3's from 28 Boone, North Carolina bands. Wish I could be at the Gamekeeper. On a personal note, my college roomate, Ruth B. married Opposition guitarist Dave Hubner. Last I heard, Dave had achieved the rank of Lt. Col and was the TF-1-77 Commander based out of Germany. He had served at least one tour in Iraq. Ruth and David have two boys and are living who know where? I bet Dave still plays the guitar and Ruth is right there swooning. She better still have my pink sweater I gave her...
