Lowell Folk Festival Rocks!

Carter loved his day at the Lowell Folk Festival.  He really got into the spirit of it with his lei and all, especially since we got to see & hear Hula Halau 'o Keikiali'i at Boardinghouse Park:

We also caught a great set by Denis Pepin & Susie Lemay, who both play accordions and perform French Canadian music.  It was all wonderful.

Just like last year, we picked up our bag of compost from the previous year.

We went down to the Lowell Folk Festival on both Saturday and Sunday.  Both days were amazing.  We were especially into the food.  Our favorites: The Jamaican meat pies. Oh, and pretty much everything we shoved in our mouths.  Thanks, Lowell Folk Festival!  We'll see you next year!

RIP, our friend Dinky

I heard some sad news from the West Coast this weekend: my furry comrad, Dinky, passed away.

Here he is with Dean and Jake (and Nirvana's gold record) at Subpop.  They have an interview with Dean there, where he explains about moving to Seattle with Dinky in a bike trailer.  And they have a very nice obituary for him there at SubPop, too.

Dinky loved people, and people loved Dinky.  He was really just a totally awesome dog.
