Kicking off Old Home Week in Catasauqua


Oh sorry - still rocking out to the Large Flowerheads.  They kicked off Old Home Week with a free concert at the Catasauqua Amphitheater tonight and it was great.  Parke and I walked down and met with bff's Cathy and Jaime - I think Cathy and I sang Jaime out of the park because she left a little early.  But Cathy, Parke and I - well mostly Cathy and I, sang, played air guitar, air drum, and our air green tambourine to all the great music.  (Parke did sing to Born to be Wild)
The Large FlowerHeads were wonderful - they did three sets starting at 6:30 pm and ending at 10:00 PM - we certainly got our monies worth.  Oh wait, it was free, even better yet.  Sons of the American Legion were grilling hamburgers and hotdogs at really cheap prices, all around it was a great,  fun, family friendly way to start this week's event.
Good size crowd to see the Large FlowerHeads

Even got a visit from bff, Cyril,
who is in town visiting.  Good to see you Cyril - so glad you stopped by!

One Debby Downer was that the Catty Cops were giving parking tickets out to some of the cars parked in the grass down at the pool - really Catty.  Do you think the police were handing out tickets to the carriages parked in the wrong spot or to the horsies pooping back in 1914?  We get to celebrate this great occasion once and parking was rough - give the people a break.

I saw one drunk who said something about the 70's and something about beer to me, I don't know what he said but it was funny just because he was drunk.

Anyway - there are more events Saturday
