Day 2 of the LauraPalooza conference was July 12, 2012. There are two videos for the general events of the day.
I finally did get around to finishing the videos for the Legacy Luncheon, but my uploading program didn’t like Part 3 because it was too long, so I’ll have to divide it into two parts and try again. In the meantime, I’m including links to Parts 1 and 2.
If you haven’t watched my video diaries before. I wear a different Laura themed T-shirt each day and I always make a point of showing which one I’m wearing because people have asked before.
I’ve also thrown in a few extras, links to Pa’s fiddle (including a preview video) and to Amber Waves. I also linked to Susan Thurlow’s interview on my podcast about this same topic and I’ll also point out that she has now published a booklet (available through the Walnut Grove giftshop) that is based on her research that started for LauraPalooza.
