Great Time at Oktoberfest

Brian Allen and Karen AllenKaren and I had great time at this year’s Redstone Arsenal Oktoberfest. Each year we run into so many friends at the festival and this year was no different.

Michael HofferTerry Cavanagh and Alpine Express provided great entertainment. I snapped a good picture of Michael Hoffer playing his trombone in the audience.

Karen and I tried for the first time an Elephant Ear topped with powder sugar and cinnamon. It was good, but I think we will be sticking with Funnel cake.

Monte Sano Art Show

Karen and I headed to the Monte Sano Art Show in Huntsville, Alabama.  We have been going to the show for a few years, but this year the show didn’t have the variety of artisans as past years have had.  Karen enjoyed the art show, but she missed some of the pottery and other similar items.  The show primary had paintings.

The setting is just wonderful in Monte Sano State Park for an art show.  As you can see in the photo, Monte Sano State Park is a forest which covers Monte Sano Mountain in Huntsville, Alabama.  The weather was great, too.
