Summer Soul-Stice Tour Week One: A Synopsis

Indeed it has been a busy week. I set the trip meter on the truck at home on Wednesday, left for Tucson, and haven't looked back. I'll check the meter when I get back home at the end of the…

Indeed, it is upon us. Dates are confirmed, routes chosen, truck serviced, wardrobe (hah!) selected, strings changed - let the worrying begin!

April Fool! 

Yes indeed, I am. And a May fool, June fool. My fool-dom is pretty much a full time endeavor. And it encompasses a remarkably broad spectrum of activities and environments. I'm an eclectic, non discriminating full time fool. Whether I…
