Herman's Hermits

Our fair town does a wonderful weekly free concert in the part all summer long. We call it River Rhythms, and it is held down in Monteith Park along the river. The last time i bestirred myself to go was for Big Bad Voodoo Daddy a few years ago. I love swing music. So, yesterday, Macy and Duck take Indy and I and Coletta up to the swimming pool in Salem. While we are there she says "hey we should go to river rhythms it's Herman's Hermits tonight!" So, we spend the next three hours trying to remember Peter Noone's name. We had a ball.While we were there, i saw the big fire truck and ambulance parked off to the side and decided to take some pictures of Indy with them. We were so fortunate that there was an awesome paramedic lurking about and he showed us all his gear and let Indy climb in (front and back) and was just a load of fun. During Intermission we met Elvis. He is looking good for being "gone" 30 years now. Elvis sat so close to the stage that Peter talked to him through-out the show. It really was a riot.So, toward the end of the show, i took a candid shot of a few of us. Just to prove we had fun. I should have photo-shopped the picture for the red eye etc, but I'm too lazy and tired (since i didn't get to bed until awfully early this morning) so this will have to do!Cheers!

Herman's Hermits? I thought they were gone and buried. Hooray for them. And for Indy, too.

I love the old hermits. Very harmonic. Hope they come to Western Australia soon.

There's a big British expat community here.

Wow! I'd love to have seen the hermits play... only know a few of their songs, but they were really fun.
