Soaked but happy

We were so worried that nobody would turn out for the conjunto festival that we went on over as soon as we heard the first bit of music. Stalwarts and diehards were already there, soaked to the skin and muddy to the ankles. Teams moved the bleachers in away from the edge of the roof. Despite everything, with a short break for one of the worst of the storms between Los Texas Wranglers and Santiago Jimenez, all went forward. Los Fantasmas del Valley played earlier than scheduled and Los Pavo Reales were additions to the program. Beer was not being sold. Rides were running only intermittently, during breaks in the weather, but Mighty Thomas has many that look new. Spongebob Squarepants must not have wanted to get his costume wet. This music makes good and happy dreams.
