A Little Time At Hillside Farm

Let's go boss... I'm ready!

Let's go boss... I'm ready!

On a nice early morning before heading out on the road, Maverick, Dog Of Destiny and I took our pre prandial perambulation.

The old school road in the morning

An old wagon road used to run through our little farm back in the 1800’s. This part is still left near where the old one room school house used to be. Maverick and I love this walk.

Welcome to the day

Welcome to the day

It looks like this every morning… and I love it!

As I have mentioned before, we have a natural gas well… and here is where it starts.

Yesterday Izze started her archery training and she’s a natural. Here she is shooting at the Fur Peace Ranch.

The arrow left that compound bow and hit the target with a resounding ‘Thwack!’

Izze 'Katniss' Kaukonen sends another one down range!

That’s my girl! NIce shot Izze!

Today we headed out to Maryland… my home time is over for a bit. Tomorrow we play The Common Ground On The Hill Festival as this little run begins.

I’ll miss the girls and home, but I gotta make a few bucks!

    Dear Jorma
    That strong and sharp morning light, G-d bless, is there every morning so live & bright, revitalizes the soul after the sound sleep of the night, goes right inside the eyes to give life to the mind, tastes so pure comin’ from who knows where, G-d bless that morning air.
    Rock Them All High Today Tonight Jorma!

    Of course I’m kidding. Just getting excited for Tuesdays show. Although I really would like to hear Highway song. A bit hard to imagine what that would sound like acoustically. Trust me, anything the boys play will be fine by me!

    I get where rich is coming from, though, johno, the anticipation of a Tuna show is part of the fun πŸ™‚

    I just didn’t want rich to be disappointed if they didn’t play his setlist.

    My biggest disappointment at a concert is still a fresh wound in my mind, some 40 years later. Box Scaggs was second billed with the Allman Brothers. Bear in mind this was just a couple of years after Duane was gone. After Scaggs set, the lights stayed down for 5 minutes! I was the lone voice at the Fabulous Forum screaming ‘Encore! Encore!’. The other 17,999 concertgoers sat on their hands the entire time.

    I wanted to hear Loan Me a Dime so bad. I know I should get over it, but it still hurts, this many years later πŸ™‚
