Ruffino's, DeSoto, Texas

I arrived in Dallas Wednesday night around 11:15pm. I think It has rained almost all the time since I arrived. It's a pity Georgia isn't getting some of this for I think that would please everyone.
Ruffino's has been great. The food, the atmosphere, the staff and the customers are all first class. I can't wait to come back. Thank you Bob for booking me and hope to see you soon.
I will be leaving early Monday for Red River and Taos. More soon. Have a safe weekend.

Canyon Road.

I spent this weekend at the lake. Pleasant temperatures, clear skies and solitude, all helped me to complete this new song. It tells of a walk I took in February of this year. If you have been on Canyon Road in Santa Fe I hope you will appreciate this one. Now I have to learn all the new songs so that they can be performed on the summer tour, which starts next week....

Friday night at Sugarmill Creek

As you can see everyone was relaxed and enjoying their Friday evening on the deck at Sugarmill Creek. The rain even waited until I had finished. Saturday it rained very hard for several hours. It was needed as it has been very dry in this part of Georgia.
This coming week will be spent preparing for the summer tour that starts Memorial Day weekend in Dallas, Texas. I have to learn all my new songs and check equipment and supplies. No spares are available once I reach Red River. This coming Friday will be my last night on the deck until July. Have a good summer....

The bees at Lake Burton.

Lately I've been reading about the disappearing bees. Quite a mystery, it seems. Anyway there are many on the southern part of Lake Burton and they appear to be healthy and active. This one was so intent on his work that my extremely close presence didn't worry him at all.
This past Friday the rain held off long enough for me to do my show at Sugarmill Creek with a great appreciative audience. Thanks to the folks from South Carolina for driving over. I have two more Fridays there before I go on tour. That tour starts in Dallas, Texas on Memorial Day weekend. Thanks to Ray Seibert of Desoto for all the help.
