I am so excited. The Farley's have invited me to attend with them. They have several overnight cabins close to the Courthouse Square. It is impossible to get lodging in Mountain View at Bean Fest time. I had been planning to spend a couple nights in Mountain View some time in the Fall. At lunch yesterday I mentioned this to the Farleys. In the evening Jewette called and invited me to go to the Bean Fest with them. I am over filled with joy and gratitude. I was not angling for an invitation when I mentioned my plans, but it sure worked out like I had. I wonder if they will ever believe me. It is true, I am innocent.
I am attaching some pictures from past Bean Fest festivities. I sure am looking forward to doing some blog posts of this year's fest. Especially some music.
Picking and grinning everywhere.
Last year they cooked 5500 pounds of beans in some forty pots. They serve beans, onions, and cornbread to all comers for free.
