Yesterday on Boretts Farm Lane between Easton  and Kettleburgh it was only four passing angels giving us a push (thank you thank you thank you thank you) that stopped us being stuck on a bit of a .slope, can't imagine it's much better today.

We were looking forward to Pancake Day and the return of the Maverick Festival in Easton .  Perversely Maverick have made their return more likely by pushing themselves back from July to September.

Santa's Rudolph Run in FramlinghamFreshbloody Christmas ... eh? from visiting Wickham Market, Easton  and Kettleburgh the night before Daddy Christmas cruised Framlingham last night.  Lots of peeps waiting for Santa and lots of elves collecting for Fram's Hour Community... the traffic was encouragingly understanding too.

Artdog

Sculpture by Iain NuttingArtdog's outdoor show in Easton over the weekend seemed unlikely with the persistent rain and wind.  It made eminently more sense when we visited Sunday and found that the majority of pieces were metal animal sculptures by Iain Nutting.

American Independence Day

Lucy Sampson one half of Honey and the Bear♫ Today Saturday 4 July is US Independence Day but more importantly your local pub should re-open.  Let's hope bottled beer hasn't reprogrammed your taste buds and you have to relearn draught.  This afternoon you could use up those bottles while Maverick virtually festival on that there Facepack.  We'll be looking out for rocker Terra Lightfoot and local Honey and the Bear.

Terra Lightfoot at the 2017 Maverick Thanksgiving♫ The thirteenth lucky for all Maverick Festival this summer in Easton has a firming up programme with some excellent names including the Legendary Shack Shakers, California Feetwarmers and Henhouse Prowlers.  Also appearing is lady guitar abuser Terra Lightfoot whom we saw at Maverick's 2017 Thanksgiving ... she took no prisoners.

Zoe Rubens 'Lost in Maze'Over the weekend at Artdog's second Art in the Barn (the Barn is in Easton Farm Park) we were very taken with Zoë Rubens objet trouvé type pieces.  We had a nostalgic flash of pleasure recognising a Brooks bicycle cone spanner in one sculpture:).  ArtDog will be showing early next month at ArtSpace Woodbridge.

Banjo Jen on the Medicine Show stage at Maverick♫ Magnificent weather for another brilliant Maverick producing some wonderful hats and for us the newbs on the Medicine Show stage perhaps the most rewarding, especially Banjo Jen.  Our ears pricked at a very lateral keyboard solo from the Cordovas closing the Southern Sounds stage Saturday..  When we pointed out that theHannah Rose Platt on the Medicine Show stage lead singer appeared to really fancy himself Rachael's friend asked for my long lens to get a better look and then said If I was that good looking I'd fancy myself.

Sunday a very pleasant conversation with Alan Mutimer and we suggested that Hachfest might return in its original form Hacheston Music Day ... who knows?
