Heidi, the local chicken woman and former keeper of goats, had a surprise party for her 50th birthday on Saturday. Lots of out-of-towners, and members of some camp counselor cult from their teen years. (Here's the moment of surprise.) Local stellar musicians and good pals Annie Garretson and Barb Doyle (who were also gracious enough to open for David Rovics when we brought him here a year ago), serenaded Heidi with several songs about being aged and decrepit. Been there done that. Anyway, an Indigo Girls song is below, and you can follow these links to Barb's "What Would Our Mothers Do?" song, the Simon and Garfunkel trilogy of "Bookends," "America," and "Old Friends," an Annie original called "Where Does the Time Go?" and two Cheryl Wheeler songs, "Potato" and "Howl at the Moon." If your bandwith can stand it, I'd suggest you click on the YouTube option that says "Watch high quality," it's much higher resolution.
