Good signing

Hi everyone,

I had a good time yesterday at Sundog Books in Seaside, Florida and thank my hostesses there. Of the three titles they had copies on hand we sold out of two and made a respectable dent in the third. The rain held off although it looked stormy for a while. I met folks from Lebanon and St. Louis, Missouri and from Arkansas. Many were from Alabama, Texas, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Today calls for more wind and rain. Sizeable whitecaps are hitting the shore as I watch. I’m thinking of the small ships at sea in the days of Columbus and how many went to their doom in stormy weather. No telling how many wrecks decorate ocean floors with their grim fates.

Well, back in the wheel this morning. At the moment I’m wrestling with an eel.

Lee and Chowning are coming

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I learned from Jaynie Chowning that the founders of the original Ozark Mountain Daredevils — Randle Chowning and Larry Lee, joined by David Wilson, are doing an acoustic show on May 6th at the Fox Theatre on the Springfield square. Tickets are available at Kaleidoscope or online at

I interviewed Randle and Larry a while back when they were inducted into Writers Hall of Fame. They’re not only gifted, famous song writers and musicians, but also good people. I hope they get the big turnout they deserve on May 6. I would suggest getting tickets right away. They will probably go quickly.
