A Little Family Time And Another Gig… Johnathan’s

First of all… there have been questions about the lovely rose on the entry about the Psylodelic Museum opening. It is a real rose. The folks who make them inject some sort of dye into the stem while they are growing. It’s really pretty cool. I didn’t buy that rose so although I know it’s grown locally I don’t know who does it. Onward…

My time here at the beach house has been in and around gigs, but it’s been delightful nonetheless. Since I’ve been in Maine, it’s been raining and very temperate with a few moments of sun… still and all, it is a summer house on the beach.

There have been times for walks and it is lovely! Of course, there was a trip to the amusement park ‘downtown.’

And then, there was a trip to:

OK. There was a pack of us at the golf course.

A demanding course, but we did endeavor to persevere!

    Real roses you say ! Wow that is really extroidinary Jorma. That is one of the oddest things that i have ever seen. Thanks Barb for being so persistant in getting to the bottom line on those roses. If someone ever asks me about the one thing i remember about Barb i would have to tell them that “It must have been the Roses.”

    Maine to Mendocino…wow. Two beautiful places. In Mendo, the Ledford House and Lula Cellars are good friends. Try and look them up.

    I guess I will have to go to Ohio to find the source of the Py-Roses creation.
    (Barbara, while in Ohio; asking around at the local florists’ shops:
    “Psssst: Who grows the Py-Roses? Where can I score some Py-Roses…?”)
    I throw a lot of parties and plan events and those roses would be the perfect center-piece for the tables!

    No gold star for the lapel Barb? @Barbara Jacobs

    July 11th, 2013 at 17:07 | #11

    I like those old fashioned stick-on gold stars.
    The kind we had in grade-school.
    Stick them on your forehead.

    However, a Py-Rose for the lapel would be the nicest lapel ornament.
    A Psylo-Prom type of attire décor.

    Dear Jorma,
    Sounds like a wonderful time for you and your family! So glad you are enjoying it!
    Next Saturday at the State Theater! I can’t wait !
    Oh, by the way, if I am not being too much of a pest, can I get the recipe for the tie dye cookies served at the Psylo opening? Or if purchased, where? I like the way they look!

    Safe travels,

    I order custom designed cookies from “Once Upon A Tart” bakery in the Village, here in Manhattan.
    They will bake cookies of any size, shape, design with the ingredients of your choice. Send them a photo of the cookies you want.
    They also do custom cookie decoration of your choice.@Cyndy Consentino

    @Cyndy Consentino
    Yes i went to PNC . The rain was ferocious wasn’t it ? It was a good show ; though i stayed for just the first set. Too tired for the second. I may go to the Mann tonite for set two. Bitter End sounds interesting .

    If anyone plans (or is already here) a trip to the beautiful beach town of Ocean City, NJ next week, plan on going tuna fishing after the Tuna show. The bite is on fire right now and I expect the band will be too (as usual).

    Back around 30 years ago, I saw a Dire Wolf at a friend’s cabin in the Maine woods.
    His grandpa, father and uncles had been seeing them for decades in that remote location.

    No cell-phone camera to whip out and photograph it.
    Just look at it and wonder: “WHAT IS THAT?”

    July 13th, 2013 at 17:37 | #25

    Ah yes, 30 years ago when we went up there we could not be reached, then came the cell phone. Oh well, the wildlife does not change, a moose is something to see.Sorry Jorma, getting off the Tuna topic.@Barbara Jacobs

    On topic,taking my 25 year old son for his first Tuna show at the Sherman. Good times!

    The Dire Wolf is not a Tuna, nor is a Moose.
    Most people have only seen a moose on Bullwinkle cartoons, however they and the Dire Wolf (and Tuna) are wildlife.
    Only Tuna are “Hot”.@richr

    Jorma, lost track of you over the years, saw you and your brother years ago at that little club in Sayreville, NJ. Looks like you’ve had an extraordinary career. Found this site thru the State Theatre of NJ website, where I see you’re playing this Sat. with Leon Russell, who wrote one of the most beautiful songs ever (A Song for You). I’m going to try to be there. All the best!

    Jorma- hope you’ll have a chance to read my note here letting you know that seeing you @ Clearwater on the Hudson regenerated a spirit of rejuvanation with being in my element as remembered years ago– my gratitude to you and your music for this! I grew up and lived in Croton-on-Hudson for about 25 years and spent many a fun times at ‘the River’ as it was referred to back then. Looking at the photos of the location where you played in Croton for the private party leaves me stumped although it reminded me of 3 possibilities from when I lived there,, Silver Lake, Croton River, or Black Rock.
    As a post-script,, I was in Maine the exact same time frame as you did Jonathan’s!! I wish I
    had known you were doing a gig there prior to going up North. My 1st intro to Maine was Ogunquit– and now own a cottage on an 88 acre pond a tad further north of OOB. We love it

  33. July 24th, 2013 at 14:12 | #33

    My wife’s family lives in Saco… we try to get up there once a year. Beautiful… big mosquitoes though.

    Jorma- that’s great that you have family connection in Maine having your wife’s family living in Saco! Did you know that the mosquitoes are sometimes referred to as ‘Maine’s State Bird’ by both Mainahs and Flatlandahs?? We have a handful of cabins on our ‘dirt’ road up north at the pond which is near Augusta and closer to China– since most of our neighbor friends all play instruments with some ‘vocalization’ we put together a jam session every Memorial Day time frame. I wish I could share a photo or two for you to see on here and you’d understand why we call ourselves the ‘Anything Goes DP Band’ –nothing better than playing music in the setting of pine trees and the breezes of the pond!! Have you experienced ‘muddin’ season yet in Saco? 🙂 Carole–
