Well, first of all let me apologize for my lame coverage of Stillwater's Lumberjack days. We arrived at 6 pm for a Zed-Leppelin concert. But the concert didn't start till 8. And instead there was a kids jazz band till 7. It was a little hard on the ears to put it mildly. So you'd think we had plenty of time for photos. But even my photo of dinner (Olive's pizza) is a bad shot. It was really delicious though.

The boats were lined up for the fireworks. One dog jumped off a boat to chase a goose and had to be rescued after he started swimming in circles. Happy ending.

But the happiest part of the evening was the Led Zeppelin tribute band Zed-Leppelin. They do such a great job of recapturing one of the greatest bands of all time. I had a couple movies with sound but blogger wouldn't let me upload them. But they will be playing again at the Lake Harriet band shell on August 21. See you there!

I even tried to get a foot shot to send to with the band in the background. But I couldn't really get a great shot here either. I didn't want to stick my yucky feet that close to the people in front of me. I overheard the people behind me say,"What is she doing???" You know you are doing something weird when you are at a Zed-Leppelin concert and people think you are strange!

It was such an awesome night. The exhilarating sounds of Zed-Leppelin and the smell of all the food venders, like those smoky grilled pork chops. The sight of millions of bugs swarming the light poles (and not us) and a lively fireworks display. Ahhh, Summer.

I'm sure you found plenty of humidity there to enjoy...just kidding, because of the comment you left me!

At first, I thought the pizza was one of your colorful paintings.

Now that is funny: doing something that made everyone wonder about you. The foot shot is worth it, though. Cool captures of the fireworks!
