This morning the annual Jubilee Pickers festival began. We met at the festival location, Southwind RV Park, for our usual Thursday morning jam session. Lots of folks have already come in for the weekend so we had a larger-than-normal group. It was fun having new folks join us – they call songs we don’t normally play and it’s always fun to learn new songs.
I left early because Susan, one of my Bible study leaders, invited me to lunch at her home. She, along with a few other women, were going to work on place settings for the church’s women’s luncheon in May. There were five of us altogether and it was nice to be included. Susan served us a fabulous lunch; chicken salad, pasta salad, and a strawberry jello salad. All of it was so delicious. She said we were the taste testers as this was the menu for the women’s luncheon. Well, lemme tell you, those women are in for a treat!!
This evening we went to the clubhouse for the last dinner prepared by Larry Cameron. Larry and his wife, Babs, are leaving for Florida in a couple of days. They are some of the finest people I’ve ever met, always with a smile and a nice word for you. They are part of the reason Rainbow Plantation is so popular! We’ll miss them.
We’re gonna be busy starting tomorrow! The festival swings into high gear, with various classes, jam sessions, and general fun. There’s also a potluck dinner tomorrow night. Really looking forward to it all.
Until the next time . . .
