The Bloom

Very quiet on the DNA front so I'll give you all a little report on the Apple Blossom Festival held this past weekend in Winchester.    The good news is that I didn't take very many pictures (and no movies) so you'll be spared that.

Our festival actually started in Baltimore last Thursday evening when our son, Jon, gave a presentation to the visual art folks at UMBC -
The first actual festival event for us was the Fireman's Parade late Friday -
Followed by a 10K race Saturday morning.    The first guy past me -Followed by the first pack -...and the first woman -
In the early afternoon it was the Grand Feature Parade which, this year, seemed to feature an unusual number of South American dance groups -and the usual number of bands -Oops, more dancers -
Following the end of the parade, the Berry family traditionally walks down to and through the midway.    We began this when our kids were small and wanted to go to the midway themselves.    Concerned for their safety by themselves, we told them that after the parade we'd all go and they could play the games and eat the food.    Well, now it's grandkids, but we still do it.    By this time everyone's pretty tired -and hungry -
