Cooney Pop Fest Weekend...

Various family gathered in New Waverly at Bill's house to celebrate his 85th birthday with an event called Pop Fest. This is a party that has been staged several times but this year as with any good festival it had it's own t-shirt. You know you are getting there when you have shirts. 

This shirt was designed by Miguel. Rabbit by Mary. No, it's not a tombstone but a tenor banjo headstock. The rabbit symbolizes that the Cooneys were rabbit farmers in Ireland and since the location of the fest is what we call "the land" you see the tall pines. 

Here's the crew, a various collection of in laws, out laws and friends. 


lots of fun at this festival. Four wheeling, fishing, food and music playing. 




You have heard of guitar face. I think they call this banjo face.

Here's a band what am a band. Cathy has her finger ou calling it like Babe Ruth. "The hook on this tune is going to land right over there amoungest ya'll." 



More folks at the party. 


Morgan made a family tree going back several generations for all of us at Christmas. He made another for Pop. It's a pretty impressive thing and the one we have probably gets more attention than any of the weird stuff we have handing around here. 


Plenty of memories shared. Katie cracks open the heirloom packing of Grandma Linda's wedding dress. 


Here's to many more Pop Fests in the future.
