"You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant." ~ Arlo Guthrie

(may not play on portable device)

At last, some time for friends! No condo updates this post, though there will be more to come. We have friends from the north visiting us right now for a few days. It has been wonderful to show them around our new neck of the woods. They have been able to stay with some mutual friends, as our sleep-sofa doesn't arrive till next week.

The guys have golfed and we ladies did around town a bit. We had a real treat earlier today - we had a lovely visit with Arlo Guthrie as he sat on a bench outside the theater where tonight he will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Alice's Restaurant, (sold out since the summer). I'm sorry that I don't have a picture. I was going to ask if we could take one, but chickened out at the last minute. He was so pleasant to talk to that I guess that I felt it would be rude - oh well!

We are enjoying days of cool but sunny weather, which I know is in stark contrast to the North East. I love a good snowstorm, but am happy to have sat this one out!


  1. I heard him perform Alice's Restaurant in Montreal around 1971 or 1972. How amazing to have met him.

  2. Have a wonderful time, Tracy!

  3. Seriously?!! You chickened out??!
    ...How cool for you! Glad you're having a great time entertaining!
