Subject: BS: Utah is back to normal
From: kendall
Date: 18 Dec 03 - 07:43 PM

He called me today to ask how I'm doing, and to say he is quite well. The infection he had is all gone, and he's chomping at the bit to hit the road. He's now ready to check out the list of venues I sent to him before he took sick.
I thought he would want to come to Maine in summer, but he misses winter, and wants to slide down a hill on his antique sled. He has an old ROSEBUD sled. Remember the movie, Citizen Kane? the last word he spoke was "Rosebud"
Sure is nice to know we still have him around.

Gee Kendall. You had me worried. I thought that his illness had affected his brain and he had taken a job in real estate or some such thing.
Good news. Tell him that there is a warm bed at my place if he heads to Maine.

Glad the man is better. We need his take on these insane times we're in. Long live Mr. Bruce Phillips !!!

If I had that sled I'd send it George Bush's daughters----so they can go downhill with their father !

The idea of ROSEBUD in Citizen Caine was that his sled with the ROSEBUD name was taken from him when he was little. It became thye embodiment of LOSS for Caine. Whenever he'd lose something important to him, he'd say "ROSEBUD". And so it was the last word he spoke.

Just what passes for normal in Utah?

It was a paradise for lizards
When young Brigham saw it first
He said, I've seen some nasty deserts, Lord
But this one here's the worst

The Lord smiled down on Brigham
Said, I've got a great idea
You know, I want a mighty city
And I think I want it here"


Just kidding -- I'm very glad to hear it.

Cheers,
Michael

Ya tricked me, Art! I thought that when I pop down to Salt Lake City I'd no longer be able to buy a beer.

Glad to hear Utah is back in health. Anytime he wants to come to Idaho (although I can't imagine why he would)....

Here's a question: in "Citizen Kane" the man is dying, alone, and his last word is "Rosebud." So, how the heck does anyone KNOW what his last word was? He was alone. Maybe he danced a jig, swigged down a bottle of hootch, and died shouting "Aw, no, MAN! Ain't this is some sh*t!"

Sorry for not spelling Kane correctly.But I've always loved The Kane Mutiny.

They knew Kane's last word was ROSEBUD becuse the room had been bugged in the name of National Security.

I'm glad to hear that he's over the infection that put him in the ICU. However, he does suffer from a congestive heart failure condition, not what I'd call "normal."

It's highly unlikely that he will bring a sled on a plane, then on the "Downeaster" train from Boston. I don't own a sled, and I am not going to encourage him to go sledding.
He will be staying here with me, Mary, and Jeri, of course we will let everyone know when and where he will be appearing. Remember, he is pretty moderate, so,don't hold your breath!

What sort of Folk Music is this "Sledding"?

Is it something endemic to "Utah" - wherever that is?

Is it anything like the Aussie Term "Sledging"?

How many strings does his Sled have?

What Key is it in?

Is it a Diatonic or a Chromatic Instrument?

Would I be able to join in with my Tea-Chest Bass?

Does anybody care?

Kendall-

That's good news! Add me and Judy to your growing e-mail list of folks who want to know when U. Utah is back in Maine.

Of course, "Normal" is really in Oklahoma.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble
