    US, glad to hear you are doing much better - that was really good news and I wish you a rapid recovery.

    By the way, I attended the Stonewall Fall Fest and really enjoyed Jacqui. She was my favorite performer out of all of them. She is truly the master of that guitar. I really enjoyed "Storm Warning", "The Buffalo Song", and "Transition". I could have listened to her music all day long. She only played six songs. The rest of the groups were ok but Jacqui was the best of all of them. The food was awesome and the weather was beautiful - couldn't have asked for a nicer fall day. They had mowed the field in front of the old zoo and hatchery and trimed it all up with a weed-eater so that you can see all the old rock work. Really enjoyed the day and look forward to the next one (its going to be an annual event from what I heard). The scenery from the fest was breath taking. Wish you could have been there!

    Wish I could have gone. I love that area. I too will definitely be there next year. Were there still campers around? I think this was the last weekend to camp or is it this coming weekend?

    There were a few campers but not a lot. I heard that the last day the resort is open is Oct. 2. The mc said they planned this all on very short notice (nine weeks ago). I gotta hand it to them - they pulled off a great event and I'm sure next year will be even better.

    DB I knew you would love Jaquie! She is one of the best I have ever heard and is on the Bonnie Raitt caliber in my book. Anyway...did anyone get over and run through the zoo? You can buy Ms Gipson's CD's and sample her music at http://www.jaquiegipson.com/hometown%20cd.htm
