Today's post is an especially quick one since it is the weekend of the Lancaster Poppy Festival. It's a great opportunity for the pipe band to get a little publicity, not to mention a great chance for the pipers to get in a bit of extra practice. We were there all day today and I'm on my way to bed so I can try the same again tomorrow.
Here's a photo, though; our booth is assigned to the "International Market" corner of the festival, or some such thing, (truly international--we're always right next to the encampment of Roman reinactors, separated only by a rope fence which some wit several years back dubbed, "Hadrian's Wall"). Anyway, I caught part of the Aztec dancers' performance. The rattle of the shells bouncing against each other on a couple of dozen ankles made for a pretty impressive sound.
