Posts Tagged ‘farm’

I feel privileged to have been part of the entertainment at this annual even for about ten years.  At the Crown picnic on the family’s Waukonda farm, nothing comes in plastic.  The table cloths are cloth, the plates are earthenware, the tableware is stainless steel and the glasses are glass. Imagine hundreds of people enjoying wonderful food, plus the music of the Banjo Buddies.  Plus a hayride, a stilt-walker, a magician, three face-painters and six caricaturists. And so much more…good company and the chance to meet new people. Did I mention the bungee jump and getting  close to farm animals?  Too good to be true.  True!  It’s inspiring.  I love it.  People come back year after year to be drawn by their favorite artist.  I have my fans: Bridget, Fred, Carla, Peter, Cheryl, Sue, Anthony, Rachel… Some of these deserve their own posts here and I plan on doing just that in the next couple of weeks.  Check in later.
