January 2010

Well, we’re starting the new year with a show in Canada Saturday. Management wanted us to play a ‘warm-up’ show somewhere really cold so we wouldn’t complain about the February shows in the northeast.
Speaking of cold…it snowed at the cabin last week. Zog the Dog, Mary and I had a snowball fight, made a snowman and went for walks in the park. Every morning I get up, start a fire in the fireplace and write until my brain explodes. Mary’s just about given up hope of me ever finishing the book. I love the time here at the cabin and it’s getting harder and harder for me to leave.
Speaking of leaving…next week I’m driving to Nashville to write and record the music for another Scholastic DVD with Jack. We just finished ‘The Book Woman’, a story about the women who rode mules up into the Appalachians to deliver books to children. Jack played ‘spoons’ and dulcimer, our PPL buddy Fats Kaplan played squeeze box and fiddle, and I played autoharp, mandolin and banjo. It’s scary how much satisfaction Jack and I get from the Scholastic projects.
Speaking of scary…next month I’ll ‘celebrate’ my sixty-fourth birthday-“will you still need me?” I can’t believe it! One more year and Poco will have to start doing ‘Retirement Home’ tours along with Paul’s Caribbean cruises. Ouch! Anyhow, hang in there and we’ll see you somewhere, sometime, somehow.
