Great rock and roll
Rockin' the Fields, Minnedosa MB

Lee notes there is always time to kill during the day at music festivals because bands don't usually hit the stage until late afternoon. So, we spend the day cleaning up things around the Schooner. And we fire up one of our generators so we have power for our laptops, cell phones, storage device and microwave. We are definitely not roughing it.

Tonight we enjoyed Helix, Sweet, Foghat and Nazareth. A great evening. We were back in the Schooner by about 1 AM.

These are the best of times - yes, lyrics from a Styx song come to mind."A.D. 1928 / Rockin' the Paradise" is a song by American rock band Styx, released as the fourth single from their tenth album Paradise Theatre. A Zwaal version after yesterday's jaunt to the stage:

Tonight's the night we'll make history: Here at the Rockin' Fields!

Tonight's the night we'll make history

Buddy, you and I

'Cause we'll take the risk to tie back the hands of time

And rock with you here tonight

We've made it through the worst of times

With our travels through

When Covid locked the doors, we hid inside

Rumor had it was the end of paradise

But I know, the world just passed us by

Baby I know, we didn't have to cry, no no

The best of times are when I'm alone with you

Some rain some shine

We've made this a world for two

Our memories of yesterday will last a lifetime

We took the best, forgot the rest

And today we find these are the best of times

These are the best of times

The headlines read "These were the worst of times"

You may believe it's true

We felt so helpless like a boat against the tide

And wished the summer winds could bring back paradise

But I know, when the world turned upside down

Baby, I knew you'd always be around

The best of times are when I'm alone with you

Some rain some shine, we make this a world for two

When I'm alone with you (the best of times)

Everything's alright (are when I'm alone with you)

When I'm alone with you (some rain some shine)

You brighten up the night (we'll make this a world for two) said, when I'm alone
