A Little About The Bluegrass Community

| January 9, 2010

People who have been listening to bluegrass and other acoustic music for many years already know, but I thought that the rest of you might like to hear about how a community can help it’s members. Recently, we have heard of many instances of musicians and fans helping out when help is needed. These stories […]

The Beach

| January 2, 2010

Our trip to Jekyll this year is much shorter that last year. It is as cold as I have experienced in 10+ trips, so I imagine it is really cold at home in the north. We did walk on the beach, here is the evidence:   The water looks cold, doesn’t it?

Thinking About the Economy: A Reminder

| January 1, 2010

Papa and I are happy to be here at Jekyll Island, on the Georgia coast, enjoying Adams and Anderson’s New Year’s Bluegrass Festival. Yes, it is a long drive, and yes it gets more difficult every year. But the warmer climate, the beach and the music make this trip among the most rewarding we take […]

Missing, But in Action!

| December 1, 2009

I feel as if I have been busy, but I can not tell exactly if anything is done. Papa and I made a flying trip to Georgia last week. This time last week, we were fresh off a wonderful Valerie Smith and Liberty Pike show in Maumee, Ohio and headed for Knoxville. Valerie and the […]

Benefit Show

| November 17, 2009

I have copied this directly from an e-mail sent to the IBMA e-mail list. I am not sure if we will be able to attend, since it is a 4 hour drive away, and the Sunday before Christmas. However, we will make the trip if we do not have family plans for that day. I […]

Life Intervenes

| November 16, 2009

I have been absent, I know that. Last week, while I was counting my chickens and getting organized to head out to a fine music event in Ohio, Papa had a little medical problem. He spent a couple of days in a hospital, and I spend some time there with him. Things smoothed out, and […]

Wow, Friday!

| October 30, 2009

It is Friday, the day I straighten up, vacuum, wash, and get ready for the weekend. It seems like I was just thinking, “It is Monday, the day I straighten up, vacuum, wash, and get ready for the week.” I guess that is why the life of a housekeeper seems boring to those who have […]
