July

June was a really awesome month for us. Fishing in Wisconsin with Mike and Sara Scharpf was so much fun! They had a professional fishing guide take us out to show everyone how to hook the big ones. Wouldn’t you know it, at the end of the day Mary caught the biggest Walleye… Damn! I suspect it was some kind of fish conspiracy!
Mike and Carol Roddy, who live not too far away, came along and brought drums and amps for the birthday bash that followed. Add an open bar and amazing desserts and what more can you ask for, except maybe an invitation to the next birthday party.
From Wisconsin we flew directly to the ‘Dosie Doe’ in Houston. What a cool place that is! It’s an old barn moved piece by piece from Kentucky to Texas and it’s as soulful as you get. Then we played one of our favorite places, the ‘One World Theater’ in Austin. Our friends Michael and Tippy Brickman, who are definitely not Texans, met up with us there for a great Mexican dinner wedged in between sound check and show time.
Then we got to go home for a few days before heading back to play ‘Love and War in Texas’, just outside Dallas. It’s an outdoor gig and the temperature was around 100 degrees that July day, so it was a hot one. But the B-B-Q and connecting with our friends Tory, Tye and his wife Kim, who own ‘Love and War, made it worth the trip.
After the Dallas show we flew to Lisle, Illinois for a big outdoor concert that ended with a huge Fourth of July fireworks display. While we were there, Mary and I got to spend time with Dr. Al and Vicki and had a great gourmet seafood dinner before heading to the airport. Unfortunately, once we got to Midway there were flight delays that ended up with us spending five hours sitting at the gate.
Mary and I are working on some gardening around the cabin this week before we leave for three shows in California and Oregon. Then we come home and have to get ready for five shows bringing us into August. Whewwww!
The new CD is getting airplay on ‘Americana’ and ‘Triple AAA’ radio stations across the country. Once again, many thanks to all those ‘Fired Up’ Poconuts who call radio stations requesting Poco. Keep up the good work!
Well, the park is full of campers, so I guess I won’t be fishing this evening. Guess it’s a good time to work on new songs and old guitars.
Hope to see you soon…
