Local Irregularities

The Eyes of Zuckerberg
927 Entry by Lana Cochrun

     Hold on!  Labor Day Weekend in Cambria means the muses rule.
     This year is a perfect storm of creativity. 
     ---The annual 927 non-traditional art show in this art colony tucked between the Santa Lucia Mountains and the Pacific.
     ---The Follies-a long tradition in the best spirit of gridiron style humor.
     ---The Pindedorado Weekend party including the 70th rendition of the "hometown parade."

the "927"
    Way back when this colony of artists began the non traditional show, there was but one telephone prefix-927. That's the back story.  Now we use the 805 area code plus one of three prefixes to make local calls. Oh the travails of progress eh?! But the 927 continues and my favorite artist, my bride Lana won in the Topical Composition category.
She's taken home Best of Show and First place but the judging this year was of a different format.  Enjoy the work.

     Randy Schwalbe penned a terrific tale of good vs. evil about a plan to build freeways between the east and west villages in Cambria. Great parody tunes and a superb effort by the homegrown cast.

the pinedorado parade
the 70th 
This is a homegrown event and as always it starts with the calliope.
Despite any or everything else, we can still enjoy Americana.



 They went by too fast! That arm belongs to the Parade Grand Marshall, intrepid reporter and all around great person, Kathe Tanner. No enemy of the people here.







 this guy is my nominee for unsung hero






























 a surprise fly over-=-they went that-a-way





 and they came back and went that-a-way














 In Cambria you can talk to the parade. He said this old ag cart is 65 years old and was found in a barn on Santa Rosa Creek Road.

























   See you down the trail.
