Inch by inch, row by row. That’s how a gardener builds a life. I need a couple of days away from the blog after 97 daily posts in a row. While I’m gone, here’s Arlo Guthrie teaching us how to sing a song. Hope you have a happy time zone!
Yesterday the weather was as good as it gets. Today looks to be more of the same. Wherever you are on this jumping green sphere, have a great day! To get you going, here’s the uniquely talented Jimi Hendrix, who left us too soon.
Greg Brown’s story about Iowa is one I’d like to believe.
Too much to do in this short life. Time enough for a cover of this song though.
It’s Friday with big load of work ahead.
In 1972, seven days after the Allman Brothers Band released their third studio album, Eat a Peach, they appeared at the University of Iowa Field House. We didn’t know what to expect since Duane Allman had been killed in a motorcycle accident Oct. 29, 1971. I worked a carbon arc spotlight for the show and it was a stunner. Eat a Peach was the last album on which Duane Allman played. This is a recording from it.
Hope you have a great Friday!
Getting a late start today, and no, I didn’t stay up late to hear the full U.S. Senate reading of the American Rescue Plan. Here’s one of my favorites songs. Make it a great Friday!
Here’s one by Phil Ochs.
“Fill ‘er up with love please won’t you mister? Just the Hi-Test is what I used to say. But that was before I lost my baby. I’ll have a dollar’s worth of regular today.”
Busy weekend ahead. Here’s a Johnny Cash version of a Kris Kristofferson song.
Taking the weekend to get chores done so I can focus on the election.

Today’s forecast is to be sunny beginning late morning, clear, and with a high of 52 degrees. I’m prepping to get outside and don’t have a lot of availability for screen time and related reading and writing before the sun comes up at 6:43 a.m. in an hour or so. I’m leaving this here.
Have a better Saturday than expected in a time of the coronavirus pandemic.
