Santa Fe and Taos.

After a hectic weekend it's nice to have a few days off. John and I spent Monday in Santa Fe. We took hundreds of photographs. Only with a digital camera can you do that.

Santa Fe. The first two photo's show one of the plaza and the other I think, is San Fransisco St. There were many people on the plaza plus street musicians. Love that town!!!

Today we went to Taos. The third photograph was taken between Taos and Valarde by the Rio Grande. There were lots of rafters on the river.
We stopped at Embudo Station to look at the old water tower from the "Chili Line" days, plus the old railway station.

The Rio Grande Gorge from the bridge. It was very windy here, almost enough to blow us into the road. The wind didn't stop the many tourists from taking pictures. From there we went to Arroyo Seco for a drink at the coffee house, before heading back to Red River. A very nice couple of days.

Fine art and Wine Festival 2009.

The Fine Art and Wine Festival in Red River was a big success inspite of the rainy Saturday. Sunday turned into a beautiful sunny New Mexico day. I shared the stage with Gabrielle Louise and Ben & Mandy. We also had DJ. Randy Moore filling in the spaces. This festival is growing. The first year I was the only performer.

New exciting news..... Gabrielle and I are planning a couple of duets for my new album. Keep tuned here for more details.

My son John and I are going to Santa Fe for the day. Now we have to decide on our favourite restaurant for lunch.

The Dog and Duck, Austin, Texas

Just arrived back in Dallas. It is very hot here. Today I got to listen to an interview I had with Candice Felice of Georgia Public Radio. It was broadcast this afternoon. It is available as a podcast on WPPR. Demorest, Georgia. Community life Podcast June 16th 2009

I had a great time in Austin and last night visited with my friends at the Dog and Duck Pub, located at 17th, Street and Guadalupe. How about that? An almost real English pub in the Texas capitol. No skittles or dominoes, but dart boards, Guinness and other fine ales. I made a Shandy using 7-up. It wasn't bad at all.

There was even a classic car show in the parking lot. Just take a look at the long, black Caddy. Looks a bit like the Batmobile, don't you think?
