I took a ride out to see Mark’s new house the other day, and he was out working on the detached garage.
The house itself has a two-car garage, but Mark wants this detached garage so that he can use it as a music room, (conservatory).
nearly finished with building the house and it’s quite beautiful. He
did most of the work himself. When he’s not building houses, or being a
salmon fishing guide, he plays the bass in the Phil Seymour Band.
Mark, John, Jerry, and Sarah played with me at the new Jefferson State
Blues Society Sunday night jam. I didn’t see anyone taking pictures of
us while we played. They wee too busy dancing to take pictures, I think,
so I have no picture to show you. Suffice it to say everybody had a
good time and the music was enjoyable.
We now have two
blues societies here in Redding. I think it’s real nice that they both
like to have my band come and play. There was a big turnout, so they may
be very successful. I hope so, because that gives me two places to play
blues each week when the band’s not working.
This little bit
of shrubbery,(above), is growing down below my apartment. I took a picture of it
today because it just looks so bright and cheery in the midst of our
here at the Treehouse are beautiful as ever, but lately they’ve been
disappearing a lot. I guess someone wants to make their home a festive
place with fresh cut roses.
So, I make
it a point to get out there every day and take a picture of the roses
as they grow before they start to look so good that somebody feels
compelled to pick them.
