May is starting out with plenty of music. John and I have been polishing the songs for the Shasta Damboree on May 3. That will be fun. I like playing outdoors in parks, We will play as a trio with bass player Mark Mlcoch in Shasta Lake City as part of s day long event featuring a parade, a caravan of classic cars to the lake, and more.

On Monday it’s Peggy Richardson and I playing at the Treehouse Monday Music Jamboree. I love being able to sing and play various styles and intensities and Peggy’s piano stylings add something special to the standards and pop tunes that we play as P&P.

I tried using a smaller pie tin so I could have more dough to put on the top. The experiment was a success and the pie is very tasty.

I prefer making my own dough, but that is not always possible, so I sometimes use the next best thing. Rolled up rolled out frozen pie dough from Trader Joe’s.

The days have been warm here in Redding and flowers are growing fast. It is great to see life unfolding all around the north state. I am lucky to be living here at this time.

I appreciate the pictures that my friend Margaret takes of P&P and The Phil Seymour Band. She has a good eye and her pictures allow me to make calculated performance modifications based on what I observe in those photos and videos.

Though I have been singing and performing for more than 60 years, I feel like I am just getting started. That is a good thing.
