On The Road Again

Yes, indeed, folks—yours truly will be hitting the road again tomorrow morning, tho not on any cross-country odyssey such as in March. Instead I’ll be headed west thru the deserts & mountains of Oregon & Nevada & on to the Golden State for a whirlwind visit to Baghdad by the Bay, or The City, as San Franciscans modestly call it.

I’ll only be in town Thursday evening & Friday, & then Robert Frost’s Banjo’s own Chicken Farmer Poet, L.E. Leone, will head back with me to Idaho, where she’ll visit with Eberle & me over the weekend & early next week. We’re all jazzed about this!

Posts are scheduled for tomorrow & Friday—tomorrow’s post will involve a bit of story-telling in the musical vein, while Friday will be the second installment of Homegrown Radio with Earl Butter (who I hope to see in person on Thursday or Friday). I don’t have anything scheduled for Saturday—I know I won’t be joining Sepia Saturday this week, as my schedule precludes it. I might or might not post something on the fly Friday night or Saturday morning. Stay tuned! However, I won’t be able to respond to comments as much as usual for the next few days.

That’s all folks!

  1. Heh, heh! So are you heading west in a convertible with the top down and the radio blaring ol' Willie? Have a blast, John, and take a deep whiff of chocolate air in Ghirardelli Square for me!

  2. Have a good trip John. We are away next week so it may be a good few days before we get chance to talk again - stay well and have fun.

  3. Yep, I thought it was art. Or should I say and installation. Have a great trip.

  4. Hi Roy, Alan, LD & Karen

    Roy: That's right! Actually, in a Subaru outback with lots of old blues.

    Alan: Thanks--& best wishes on your travel as well.

    LD: Thunder Mountain Battle Monument is quite an interesting place--right in the Nevadad desert (of course, saying "Nevada desert" is a redundancy) west of Winnemucca)--it was all built by one Native American man & his family, & they lived there in the 1960s & 1970s--maybe even into the early 80s--can't recall now when he died. It's in the process of being restored as a historical site by the state of Nevada.

    Karen: Thanks!

  5. Have a great trip. I think "Born to be Wild" is in order. Fire all of your guns at once!

  6. Oh, fine. So I finally get home, and you take off. I suppose that's just as well. It will give me time to peruse the archives. Buen viaje. Have a wonderful time in The City (the San Franciscans are right, you know).

  7. Hi K & Sandra

    K: Now that's funny! Thanks!

    Sandra: I agree with you--as you probably remember, I lived there for almost 10 years & it is very close to my favorite place on earth--definitely favorite city!
