Hello from the Skyline Motel in Alexandria, MN. I'm returning from the utopic Boats & Bluegrass Festival in Winona. Friday's gig was fantastically fun. At one point there were seven or eight people on stage with me (mandolin, fiddle, beatbox, cowbells, stand-up bass, and Jes and Kendl from The Blackberry Bushes singing harmonies)!

I rejoined The Blackberry Bushes on the main stage last night and rapped over their doowop/bluegrass hoedown, "Cotton Skies." Lovely bunch, they are. I might tour with them in Europe someday.

BBC interview for Scotland screenings of Roll Out, Cowboy: "A film that gets under the skin of life . . ."

Just back from two long drives to Toronto. Tomorrow it's back in the fish tank again! I could use more than a full day off. The steady flow of income keeps me from complaining too loud, though.

Whilst away my poor garden froze. Dozens of precious tomatoes, beans, and squash bit the dust. The root vegetables are fine. Not sure how the pumpkins will fare.

Here are two pre-frost pics:
The frost was good for the buffaloberries. They're sweet now.

I made it to church this morning with Grandma, Uncle Ken, and Aunt Christi.

What else?
1. I'm enjoying using the wood stove again in the cabin.
2. Awoke up this morning to two dozen wild turkeys outside my door.
3. I'll be performing at the Boats & Bluegrass Festival in Winona, MN, next weekend!
