Okay, it’s officially time to get excited about Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic! The Austin Statesman has published Willie Nelson Picnicologist Dave Thomas’ stories about Willie Nelson’s annual musical celebrations.  Dave never lets us down, and this year it is a slideshow of posters and stories.   Dave’s been to   He’s been to 17 picnics and counting, even  even before he got paid to write about it, and he’s got a poster collection to support it.

The slide show is consolidated, with the posters, and very enjoyable.  They are also re-publishing Dave’s entire articles from years past, that are fun to read.

Thanks, Dave Thomas!
