Cooler Than I Thought
We saw this sweet picture of me and I figured that my mom had made the outfit - because she was quite the amazing homemaker. I was right about that fact. She'd made the hat and bonnet. What I didn't know, until my parents told me during the slideshow, was that this picture was taken at one of the very first Kerrville Folk Festivals. How freakin' cool is that?
The very first one, according to Wikipedia, was in 1972. I'm guessing this must have been the second festival - in 1973 - because I'm walking and it looks like I'm about 2 years old - not 9 months old. I have always wanted to go to the Kerrville Folk Festival...but I didn't realize that I'd already been! Looks like I'm having a heck of a time, too. My dad said: "See, Jenn? I told you we were hippies! We took you to a folk music festival." Well, I knew I was raised by hippies. And as I told him, I'm glad I was. Makes me wonder what famous singer I may have heard that day. I tried to find a program from '73 online but had no luck in the six minutes I was willing to dedicate to that project.
If any of you were there and remember the headliners, be sure to let me know.
