Lu was accepted for the first time in at least 10 years. This is probably the most artist friendly show that we have ever done. Lu was impressed from the moment that she went to check in and came back to tell me about the most helpful woman who checked her in.

We then went to set up our tent and found that we had a fence post in the middle of it, as we were trying to figure out what to do, our block captain came by and asked…


Easy Up Type tents

Once again the downfall of the Easy Up type tent was proven at Crosby Gardens. Almost all of the downed tents were of the Easy Up variety. We had 5 inches of rain in an all day rain. The majority of time when I see damaged tent from wind or rain they are primarily the Easy Up type tent.

If you are going to be professional, get a professional tent, and not picnic tent

We then went down the street to get haircuts for both of us and then back to the hotel. We got up early on Friday to go to the show when we got a call about problems a home which caused us to leave after calling the show to cancel.

We were on the way home when it started pouring rain before we made it out of the…
