Oh Happy Day

Here in the South, our weather can stay warm well into fall, but today there was just a hint of "cool" in the air. An absolutely gorgeous day. The Fall Festival at White Oak Estates was held today in their beautiful outdoor pavilion. People browsed through the handmade jewelry and pottery at the craft booths and admired the beautiful fall displays. More crafts were set up inside.

And then..oh my....there was the food. When we arrived, a huge stone grill was already fired up and loaded with hot dogs, chicken skewers, and corn. The smoke drifting through air was making us all hungry. There were four other food stations, filled with side dishes and "fixin's". You could satisfy your sweet tooth with a visit to the cotton candy lady or a stop at the freezer filled with ice cream treats. This event was like an advertisement for retirement.

The Yesterukes were in fine form as they entertained the lunch crowd for about an hour. Our typical audiences sit still and watch us as we play. But today people were free to enjoy lunch, wander through the booths, and visit with friends. It was like playing for a big party. So much fun. We loved it when one of the ladies came up and sang with us! Can you tell we had a really good time? Yes...yes, we did.
