Anyway, this time of year we're busy getting ready for life on the farm in winter.
Steve's out on our beautiful forest that surrounds our one room cabin that WE built ALL by ourselves with a chainsaw and broken level. It's so special because it's ours. Steve's collecting and stacking firewood for another winter with our wonderful wood stove. We're also drying our own fruit, of course, from our own fruit trees on screens top of that stove for winter snackin'...yum....[smell good too]. Nights are getting cold and we're using the stove now. Buckets of apples and pears on our front porch....just waiting for winter pies and sauces.
We had over 20 chicks born this summer, The new little roosters trying to 'crow'...weak and wobbly....real cute. The turkeys are getting BIG and not looking forward to Thanksgiving next month. Neither is BARTLETT and I and we've been talking about skipping the turkey this year. Oh well, it's O.K....maybe next year...how can we eat a friend, we 'have a real 'chick on the side'....maybe a egg sandwich...what do you think?
We did 'harvest' a sheep or two with help from friends earlier this year....sure it tasted great, BUT, was so hard to swallow a friend. hummmmm...being a farmer is alot harder than I first thought...and it will take some getting use to. Fresh chicken eggs are going down just fine, thank you.
AND, Music always gos down just fine. Thank Goodness.
Here's some tunes that BARTLETT maybe working up today. Rehearsing with SASS tonight....Cool.
Well O.K...what gigs are coming up this month? Remember you guys this list can change at any minute AND I'll keep things updated as fast as I can after I heard ANY new news...O.K?
As it is now seen,...there's a cool gig at THE SWISS PUB in Tacoma, WA. on Monday, October 27th. It's that Funky, BLUZZZY SASS doin' their thing.
On Tuesday, October 28th, it's cool jazz...'THE DON COHEN JAZZ QUARTET' at RHYTHM AND RYE in Olympia, WA. Of course, this is for ALL JAZZ Fans. I'll see you at both gigs, of course. SMILE/wave, Jan
