Rose-Coloured

.: Things are about to get hectic again. Tomorrow night I’ll be on site at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, helping to set up and configure the Performer Hospitality area backstage. The festival runs from Thursday until Sunday evening. My brother Chris and friend Tony are arriving on Thursday to attend the festival, and will be staying at my home during that time. Chris is also volunteering again, for the first time joining me on the Performer Hospitality crew.

On Tuesday, 15 August 2006, two days after the festival ends, I fly to NYC to spend a week holidays there. Among other things, I plan to see the Steely Dan/Michael McDonald show at Jones Beach on the 17th, and living legend Les Paul at the Iridium Jazz Club on the 21st. I had planned to see Alex Chilton and The Box Tops at the Seaport Music Festival on the 18th, but according to the NYTimes, “The Box Tops with Alex Chilton have canceled their tour dates because the band’s bassist, Bill Cunningham, has had a medical emergency. The band was to have played a free show at South Street Seaport on Aug. 18.” Bummer. Instead, the New York Dolls are performing in their place. Other activities are planned and others will evolve each day.

Three days after I return, my parents, their neighbour Lynn, and her two children will descend upon my home for three nights, as part of a Winnipeg-Calgary-Edmonton-Winnipeg trip. Then, suddenly, it will be September. As always, we will ask – where did the summer go? Oh, and I have new glasses.

    You have new glasses – I have a new kitten.

    I have new glasses too, and my fashion designer (that would be my 16 yr. old daughter) picked them out for me. My new glasses are brown metal frames and a far cry from the severe black frames for the past four years.
