Procrastinators, I have good news for you! This past weekend was proof that good things can happen at the last-minute. The weather turned out perfect after a couple of days of rain. We felt so lucky that the all the clouds broke up to allow sunshine and cooler temperatures to reign during the afternoon. The weather turned out to perfectly mirror the talents of the new-to-us musician, August Rolufs.
August brought along his friend, Lucas Showalter, to play bass. The two played a relaxed mix of modern, original, and 70’s-era songs.
Lots of family and friends came out to listen to August and enjoy the lovely afternoon. We even had a few new doggies enjoying the action!
August normally plays with a band called Moon Jr., but put together a solo/duo gig for us. He was excellent, so we were surprised to learn that he put together such a good performance with only two days practice! It seems like good things at the last minute was the general theme for the afternoon.
Another fun moment for Clyde and I occurred before anyone showed up to the winery. Clyde has been watching some volunteer gourds and pumpkins grow for the last month or so in our leaf composting area. As I was setting up tables and chairs in the wine garden, Clyde came chugging up to me on the tractor and stopped right about where I was going to set up a table. He had a big grin on his face and motioned to the bin on the tractor.
As you might already have guessed – there were several large pumpkins in gourds that he had just picked. So all those stage decorations were another last-minute decoration! 😀
Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the wine, music, and good company on Saturday. We hope to see you again soon!
