Today I bet a man from London 100 quid that I could catch his dart toss in my teeth. It was close and I may have cut my tongue but dadgummit I won the wager. The only glitch is that I’m in Fayetteville Arkansas and the banks are all closed until Tuesday so I can’t exchange the money until Wednesday because I’m closed on Tuesdays. So I’ll gladly pay you Wednesday for a hamburger today. Normally I’d pay you Tuesday but you’re dealing with unusual circumstances.

Love at 86


Just finished visiting my Auntie Sylvia in Dartmouth. I love her! She’s living in a retirement home now. She’s my Ma’s older sister. I’m happy to announce that at the tender young age of 86 she met a guy and found new love. His name is Ches (yes Ches) and she introduced him to me as her “boyfriend”. She’s a widow and this makes my heart extremely happy for her. She has a spring in her step and she’s sharp as a needle. What a great visit. Sigh. It’s never too late.

I have a lot of unread emails. One day I’m going to hole up in a hotel room for a month and weed through them and make some room for a vintage coffee table, bureau and chesterfield I recently purchased at a flea market in Annapolis Royal. Until then I will live with this madness.

“Calling Dr. Bombay, calling Dr. Bombay. Emergency! Come right away!”

Bow wow roar

One time I stood in front of a garage door and I yelled things at people as they walked by. Sometimes people yelled back and other times they just walked away faster. Eventually I was chained to the fence and told to be good but I ended up going on a hunger strike until my neck got skinny enough to slide out of my leash and I was free. Now I’m back to barking and yelling things at passersby. The moral of the story is that spots don’t change their lions or something like that.

Headed over yonder to Truro now

Thank you Mount Stewart, Prince Edward Island. Great crowd last night at The Trailside Inn. I love when people rally on a Tuesday night. Place was at capacity and the food was so good. They must grow potatoes here because my potatoes tasted like the best potatoes I’ve ever had. Fresh from the womb potatoes. This place is beyond pretty.

So now I’m fixing to leave PEI and head over the bridge to Nova Scotia. Specifically Truro. I play The Marigold Theater tonight Aug 27 at 7:30.

Then? My final Nova Scotia show is Thursday Aug 28 in Halifax. I play The Carleton for Halifax Urban Folk Festival. That’s tomorrow night.

Friday night Aug 29 I’ll be in Norwalk Connecticut along with Toad The Wet Sprocket at Norwalk Concert Hall.

Saturday and Sunday Aug 30 and 31 I’m playing Fayetteville Arkansas for Fayetteville Roots Festival.

That’s all I can remember for now. Did I mention how friggin pretty PEI is? So pastoral and peaceful with lazy breezes.

Gotta shower. Later gator.
