time flies

i can't believe it's been so long since i blogged. my camera is still
on the fritz and it just doesn't feel right to post without pictures....
been too busy at work and doing what little bit of shopping i've
done to do much else. tho we did escape to new orleans last
friday night for the *arlo and friends city of new orleans* concert
at tipitina's. (for those of you who are too young to know....
i'm talking about arlo guthrie: son of woody guthrie (this land is
your land) and creator of Alice's Restaurant.one of the pure gems
of the late 60's and well worth a listen if you;ve never heard it! all
18 + minutes of it. it was wonderful to get back to new orleans
for FUN and music. and nice to know his hair is WAY whiter than mine~

Oh, Claive - where has the time gone? Arlo was a KID when he had that hit song! One of my best birthdays was when my children bought me tickets for Pete Seeger & Friends at Carnegie Hall - about 10 years ago. I cried through the whole thing, I was so happy!
Thanks for sharing this.

How great to see Arlo, and his wonderful hair. What a treat that you got to hear him in concert.
I love Alice's Restaurant. The song and the actual restaurant. It is played every Thanksgiving on KFOG.

Heyza you! What FUN....the only tape I ever totally wore out was Precious Friend, a duo with Arlo and Pete Seeger. So when it died I bought it on CD! Oh don't I wish I could have heard that new song ....

Merry Christmas and happy eggnog, Sarah
