It started out because my favorite singer of all time, EG Kight, was playing at a blues festival in Williamsport, PA.
I figured it would be a perfect way to start out a trip to see the family as well.
I have seen EG twice before but never with her band. I was so pumped it's amazing that I didn't burst a seam or blow a gasket.
We stayed at the Genetti Hotel in downtown Williamsport and felt queen-ish and king-ish.
|No one's ever left a note on my bed before. Cool, eh?|
|The Genetti is very old and has a fascinating history.|
|Loved the shower.|
|"Rubber ducky, you're the one"|
|Downtown Williamsport is very cool. These murals were across the street from our hotel.|
|We arrived late afternoon on Saturday; the blues festival was the next day so we set out to find some food.|
|We lucked out. Outside seating, beautiful weather and music.|
|The old rail station.|
|Ringo was next door to the hotel with his all-star band Sunday night. I understand the show sold out quickly.|
|Other than city hall, I have no idea what the other three pictures are of. I just liked their looks.|
|This marks the beginning of Williamsport's "Millionaires Row." Beautiful big ole houses.|
|This is the second floor mail shoot. We were told there is only one other still around. I'll show it to you in a later blog; bumped into it by happenstance.|
|This is not the first time I've taken a picture of flooring for my blog. Probably won't be the last either.|
|Our breakfast hang-out.|
|The "ladies" was recently redone. Fancy.|
|More flooring. I can't help myself.|
|A little resting place to take a load off if one so desires. OMG, I'm talking like some kind of society dame. Well, except for the "take a load off." That sounds like a trucker dame.|
|I also have a thing for doors.|
|The main floor mail shoot. No longer in use but so very, very cool.|
|I have to look at the poster to remind myself who else was there. Honestly, I paid no attention. My main focus was EG.|
|So glad we thought to bring our chairs. I managed to catch a bit of a nap in mine between EG's band performance on the main stage and her solo session in the acoustic tent later on.|
|There she is! Her band was killer. I had to fight my way to the front of the mosh pit but I used my elbows and may have stepped on a few toes. Oh well.|
|EG tries to have some local kids up when possible for a few songs and these boys were great.|
|Each time I've seen EG perform I've been fortunate enough to spend a bit of time talking with her. This day we got some quality "chat time" in.|
