Turkey Day at the Legion

Had a decent turnout at the legion yesterday for Turkey Day. Not as many people came as were expected, but still a good crowd. I didn't start taking pictures until a good number of people had already left. I was focusing on Videos earlier of Jared & Moses playing and I uploaded one of those to Youtube and its posted here. at the bottom. Took me a while to figure out the video part of the camera so I missed some really good ones until I figured that out. Still need to read the manual to find out how to get the best out of the new camera.

Just Me (Julianne) had her banjo there, but if she got it out and played it I'd already left. I left about 7:30 or 8:00 over stuffed, but it looked like some of them were around there until closing (Midnight) since the outside party lights were still on then.


There was way more than enough food to go around, but for some reason this year there wasn't much in the way of desert. I guess we need to work on that for next year. What was there was really good. I ate a couple of different types of fruit salad and a good sized slice of cherry pie which was enough for me. There was also pumpkin pie, but I've never liked that so didn't eat any of it.


Not sure of the name of the song in the video so I took my best guess. This is Jared and Moses in the video with Jared on the guitar and Moses on the harmonica.

BTW its windy as hell here and mighty cool so I'm just hunkering down today.

  1. Good quality audio on the video. Even could hear the woman in the background talking over the singer. Can you see the party lights from your place?

  2. rj, unfortunately at a shindig like that most people don't see that a video is being made or don't care. Would be hard to get a decent video under those conditions.

    Yes I can see the legion and the party lights from here real easy. Its only about a quarter mile away and I'm on the hill above it.

  3. I am serious that the audio was good quality. People talking over performers is common if not rude regardless of any recording.

  4. I agree rj, but I'm sure most of us are guilty of it at times. (Especially if someone else is doing the video and they don't care for the type music being played.)

    I may try to corner the musicians and get them up here in the cabin for a private video session. Both of them are great and they did some great numbers. I have more videos, but some had so much background chatter that I wouldn't post them. They are also in high def and are very large files so it took over an hour to upload the one on here.

  16. We had a great time, as always, thanks to Dave and the Legion. Now we are back home to chilly weather and seeing the high temps of mid 70's down there for the upcoming week. BUT we will be back soon.

    (today is our 3 yr anniversary - The Field Lab wedding by father/reverend/brother JW)

    Guess we'll have to schedule a little party at the Legion for belated celebration. BYOB.?

    Not much in the way of desert? Two kinds of pie, that is desert!!!! Either one of them would be fine with me.
