Mine may have already been mentioned bu others, but here goes again:

1) Judy's knitting solo - a lovely touch, giving a nod to a time many of us never saw

2) The shooting stars during Fairport's set

3) Morris On - seeing them all having such fun on the stage, and the way that transmitted itself down to us in the audience too

1. Another vote for the best knitting solo ever.
2. The elsewhere mentioned harmonies from Sophie.
3. Dropping some bacon on the ground out of my breakfast bap.....(One does simply not drop one's bacon)...and not caring a jot - a sure sign I was relaxed and happy.
4. (I know, I know) - Being a good boy all weekend and sticking to my budget...leaving myself eight quid to buy a fish curry on Saturday night, even though it meant not buying the pink Island copy of Mott's Mad Shadows I saw at the boot sale.
5. Thinking sod it, going to the village shop, buying a tube of toothpaste and getting £50 cash back, going back to the boot sale and buying the pink Island copy of Mad Shadows for £30. And a copy of Brain Capers. AND a fish curry.And an Oggie and a coffee on the way back after MOTL.  Grin

1,
In our back garden with our fairport family, Ed playing and singing along with AJC and his son Connor ( watch out for this very talented chip off his parents block) Ed is in Bandersnatch , a group from Bolton

2,
Stood  in the field at the bar counting shooting stars.
3,
Opening countless tins of beans and tomatoes in the back room of the village hall, then been released to serve teas and coffees.
( thank You all who chose the best breakies, it helped raise over £7,000 pounds for the village hall funds)

1. Arriving in good time on Saturday and at once got the friendly feeling from people around us and I realized that nothing had changed from my first Croppers more than 35 years ago.
2. The Fairport set, the 60's line-up with Jude, Ian, Ashley, Richard, DM and Simon and a beautiful Sloth
3. Morris On. I didn't know I liked Morris music that much  Grin
