Not quite - he arrives tonight. John will be touring for a few days and then back at my place on Friday. He plans to be at the Press Room on Friday night. Check in here for further developments. I have no idea if there will be a song circle or whatever.

"John MacKenzie's in Maine!!!!"

God Bless America!





Say hello to him from me. He was great at the festival, and although I didn't understand a sinle word he said except 'beer', he was also a wonderful guy. Through a translator he mentioned that I seemed to have the same difficulty as did he. When I asked what that might be, he said, "Getting better lookin' all the time and not able to do anything to stop it." So, not only a wonderful man and performer, but also wise. (Any guide dogs there?)

I picked up John this morning at 5 and had him downtown Montreal at the Greyhound bus at 6:30.
It was a pleasure driving him in as it gave us a chance to talk. Festival being as it was, I found little time to spend much time with anyone.

Maeve,
I have no idea what John's schedule is. If we can put together an impromptu song circle for Saturday or Sunday, who is in? It will have to be simple - Wine and beer left from last weekend and maybe order pizza or Chinese food.
This all depends on his schadule, though.

Unfortunately I didn't sell out of CD's at Apple Hollow, so I have some with me. I only brought a few with me in person from Canada, and I mailed the rest to Mary's, I had visions on some officious border guard accusing me of coming to work illegally in the US if he found a load of CD's in my baggage.
I shall post more anon, see you on Friday Tom.

We'll see, Morty. He does play the banjo, you know. And the initial shock of Chance's aversion therapy are wearing off.

John was the first one off the bus last night. the pouring rain stopped just long enough to get him packed into my car. Freddie is happy - someone to let him in and out today. He was treated to the fog horn from Portland Head Light last night - kind of a neat way to fall asleep.

i am at work. He is in Tami's hands this AM and on his way to Maeve once he has settled a rental car.

look for updates from up north (or is it Downeast? I am still from away).

Had a nice breakfast out with da boyz. Remembered Linn's CD and our beautiful plants. There may be a Martin guitar for sale, but there's definitely going to be a Guild D-4 for sale. Thanks to John for not buying the smaller Nick guitar so I could. Unfortunately, he needed it for a gig, so I didn't bring it home. Got to play his fiddle last night too.

Jed was going to give John a ride to Logan. Great to see you guys again. Mary, did John take his sheep home? His fleas?

The flea thing was not funny. Seamus visited, came in the house from my yard and the little bastards were walking all over him. So I checked the cats and they too were infested.
Planned to buy Frontline on my way home from work - fine.
When I arrived at work I put my purse down and a flea jumped off me and onto the desk. GROSS! So I had to have Frontline too.

I went to the ladies room and combed all my hairy parts dreading what I might find - fortunately, nothing.

Of course it's not funny. Do they make flea collars in pearl?

I got something on me from that futon. Luckily, Alice decided she wanted to stay on the futon and get off me. Lovely cat.

Chatted with his nibs a short while ago. 32 hours from Mary's... he showered and decided it was time to sack out. Even his typing sounded tired... but, a good kinda tired.

As Gary said, I was worried. Thank goodness they have arrived though. That means they took exactly 14 days, when the Canadian post office lady said 8 maximum!

The Canadian Post Office.

Fact: I sent a time-sensitive letter-sized envelope (5" x 7") and paid $10 to ensure it arrived within a few days. Sent three from when I live in Alberta to Edmonton which is also in Alberta. It was there within six days. Sent one to Edmonton from Montreal. It took two days. Had some CDs I sent to people arrive in anywhere from three to twelve days. Sent airmail cds to various places in Australia. One took two months, one three weeks and another FIVE days. Folks, the post office don't make sense no more.

Sorry about the silliness. John's visit was an excuse for music music and more music. Jed's house concert coincided and I don't ever remember a night with more musicians playing more instruments and passing them around slightly reluctantly like a mother with a newborn baby.Jed was brilliant. His friends showed up with banjos and guitars. John and Kendall joined in along with Jeri. There was some singing but mostly instruments. Blue Grass, Traditional Folk, Singer Song Write Folk, C&W, Blues... And the night definitly belongs above the line.
