Cousin "Uncle Marty" Visits Jake
Boston and Johnson's Famous "Apple Acres" Too

Kennybunkport Gazette              September 30, 1999
I had heard so many good things about the Johnson family's annual Apple Acres Farm Bluegrass Festival, I couldn't resist a quick trip back to check it out for myself.  It was 10 times better than I had expected.  I also got to visit with Aunt Elaine, Uncle Bobby, the kids, grandkids, in-laws, and outlaws.

Here's some photos of the trip..

Thanks to all my relatives and friends for making my trip very enjoyable!  Come out to California sometime soon so I can return the hospitality.
