Good evening El. Boomer says Hi, and the first festival we will be doing will be the Ohioana Book Festival that will showcase local Authors. Great show that is held at Fort Hayes which used to be a Military Post in 1862. Here is some history: The 77-acre military post known today as Fort Hayes in Columbus was born out of the need for a federal arsenal to store and repair Ordinance Corps arms and to equip Ohio regiments called to duty during the Civil War. Columbus, in 1861, was a small city of 19,000 inhabitants confined to a relatively small geographic area. That same year Congress authorized the erection of an armory and arsenal in Columbus. Ordinance Corps General C.P. Buckingham selected a site nearly two years after the congressional authorization. It was a tract of about 70 acres northeast of the city, an oak grove owned by Robert and Jannette Neil of Neil House fame. The need for an army arsenal in Central Ohio was acute soon after war broke out. The state arsenal was jammed with arms and equipment for the states' first regiments, but that building was deemed unsafe and a fire hazard. The army needed a modern arsenal for the receipt and issuance of arms and equipment and the manufacture and storage of ammunition. The public school system purchased it for 1 dollar and renovated the building to make it an amazing High School Campus to which our son attended. It is truly an amazing Historic Landmark. We are both well and send our love to you and all in the kitchen. XOXO  (Jan 19, 2014 | post #32396)

Good Morning Dear Bizz. Wow!!!!! your Dad at 95....how wonderful and blessed that you have your Dad. Boomer ask a friend if she still called her Dad by Daddy or when did she stop calling him Daddy? She said, "he will always be Daddy". I am finding out that a lot of women never stop using Daddy. I think that is so sweet. Sounds like it will be a great party!  (Oct 5, 2013 | post #78)

Hi My friend Quinn! I have been missing you! Yes, if you get the chance to go see the Carolina Chocolate Drops they are more impressive in person. When Boomer had his radio show he had them on. We received tickets to see them. Now they are Grammy Award Winners and Rhiannon the original gal of the group is a beautiful person. I hope you and yours are well. Peace & Love Always.  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #26914)

Wow! Sounds lovely. Boomer is pretty much healed, only having a loss of a words now and then. It seems to frustrate him as he has never been one for a loss of words. I have told him that it will get better and is normal with a head injury. It is just a matter of re-training the brain. We have our largest Festival on the 28, 29 and 39th with an attendance of about 350,000 people. Then next is July 28th with 20,000 approx. attendance. Thanks always for your thoughts. Lots of love!  (Jun 20, 2013 | post #26897)
