What a fun photo. I spent a fair portion of my misspent youth working festivals and trade shows, this brings back some great memories.

What fun! Indeed, wonder what musicians were playing back then. The old photo is grand. Thanks for sharing it.

I personally wouldn't want to go back to those days. I wasn't a Christian then, for one thing. I just like being 58 better than a teenager, which is what I was that year.

I love the photo, though!

Hi! This is my second time leaving comments on these posts because my computer is doing funny stuff. Please excuse me if I'm repeating my self. We will just say I'm making up for staying away! I'm doing well except that I've been very busy with my classes (which you have probably determined from my lack of "blogging"). Thank you for inviting me to read your poem. It was fantastic.

Blessings and Peace to you and yours!
