Our very own Marmota Monax, Chuck says an early spring is in the offing and that’s OK by us. The cold never used to bother me but as I’ve gotten older I find I prefer to be toasty. This means that even if it gets into the 50’s today, the motorcycle is staying in the garage. Yeah, I’m getting to be a wuss, I know.

Got a couple of Hot Tuna gigs coming up in California. McCabe’s on Pico in Santa Monica

That would be an early and a late show on February 10, 2024. Then a trip to Pappy And Harriet’s. 

That would be in scenic Pioneer Town, California on February 17, 2024. You’d think with Jack living on the Coast and all we’d work out there more but for some reason i just hasn’t evolved that way. Anyway, a couple of rare Hot Tuna moments our there in the Golden State. Join us if you can!

Time to put a pigtail on my little Honda Monkey Ranch Machine… Wrenching lite you might say.

Time to get out and see how Buckeye Chuck’s prognostications are holding up!



  1. Maverick is looking great Jorma! We have a new standard poodle in the house – Týr. Maybe he’ll make the trip to Fur Peace someday (I do miss the weekend workshops – times I’ll always treasure…)

    Alls I got to say is at my age, 70 is the new 50 as far as air temp goes.

    Toasty is good.
    In my early 60s I said to a 90-year-old friend, “You know Doc, as I get older I seem to feel the cold more.”
    He looked at me like I was the dumbest guy on the planet and just said, “No kidding.”

    Don’t know if you’re flying out or not but I just got back from the namm show and brought Covid back with me…
    This time around really sucks and according to my dr harder to shake…
    Oh and yes I’m vaccinated yes I wore a mask blah blah blah.
    Be careful out there… I just lost 4 days and will probably lose 4 more!!
