Yep, just read it. Too bad you're not from "my" Jackson, you could go and report back on what a fun time I'll be missing. Would you believe I've got commitments out of town this weekend and once again won't make the Fest! I guess people schedule so much in the late summer trying to get popular events in before the more changeable and iffy weather sets in. It seems like every Sept. is chock full of shows, fests, concerts, etc. Once I found out when the fest was this year I put it on the calendar and pretty quickly had notices about other things to which I have standing commitments requiring my presence. I've got so much on the calendar for next weekend, it won't all fit.
I'll be regretting every minute I'm not at the fest though 'cause what I've got to do won't be nearly as much fun.
