It was opening night - Carmen - with a gala afterward.

That was Saturday.

Today it was a quick stop at the store, and then a string band concert in an authentic pre-revolutionary barn.
That's followed by a potluck supper at tables with plastic covers sitting in the shade - deviled eggs and baked beans and pasta salad and fried chicken....
Americana 2011 - totally genuine, and without pretense.

Sometimes life reads the script and gets it right.
It's life as it should be and we're smiling.
