Another Thanksgiving, has come and gone, I hope it was a good one. My certainly was, with my dear friends Tom and Nina Rebstock, here in Santa Fe. Nina is an incredible cook, and also prepares a lot of my meals, for me. Went light on the goodies, small portions of sweet potato souffle, and cherry pie. Did sneak in a piece of pumpkin bread at Gig Performance Space, listening to my friend, and mind boggling jazz guitarist Bruce Dunlap. Otherwise straight and narrow on my weight loss program. These last few weeks of the year, are a tremendous challenge for me, with my love for good food, and especially deserts. I will prevail.
In addition to my regular residence nights at La Fonda, I’ll be doing my monthly visit to Second Street Brewery on Second Street. Always a nice evening there, hope you’ll stop by from micro-brew and good pub food.
For the first time in several years, I’m headin’ down to ABQ, for Michael Hearne’s and SxSW annual show for the High Desert Dancers, Christmas party. Huge dance floor, and they’ll be some refreshments as well. Don’t get much of a chance to pick with Michael, now that he lives in Austin. Jimmy Stadler, will be joining Michael. He is an honorary member of SXSW. I’ll do afew with Michael, and just enjoy and seeing a lot of friends and fans. Should be a great time.
Speaking of picking with Michael, Michael, Don Richmond, Zeke Severson, and myself, will be doing a full show together in La Veta CO, on Wed 12/18 at 7PM. The venue is La Veta Mercantile, right on main St in La Veta. It is becoming a great music venue, for both listening and dancing. Wish we could have done it on a weekend, but couldn’t make it work for us all. You could folks in northern New Mexico, and southern CO, come join us for a good pre-Christmas dance and concert. We have no idea, what’s going to happen, but it will be fun. Cross you fingers for good weather.
I’ll close for now, but come see me soon. Love to have you anytime. So much appreciate your support and friendship. Stay well, we need you out there in the audience, and on the door floor. And as Don Richmond, wife, Terri McCartney, and Shake Russell wrote and recorded on their respective albums, Don’s group is the Rifters: here’s the chorus
NEVER MISS A CHANCE
TO SHED A LITTLE LIGHT
GIVE A LITTLE LOVE
MAKE A WRONG RIGHT
LEND A HELPIN’ HAND, ANYTIME YOU CAN
ASK YOUR LOVE TO DANCE
NEVER MISS A CHANCE
We never know, when our chances will run out. Life is short.
