They say you should always take any credit you can get, I guess there is a web site called Pottery Making Info. Every year they give out awards. I was very pleased to see that Meredith Heywood made the list and also Tony Clennell .I thought I should have gotten partial credit for doing comic relief for Tony. He is very good at giving me a set up to come in with a witty comment. It works pretty well considering the language barrier.( He's Canadian you know). Anyway they were in the top 10. Congratulations to them both.If you look at the fine print way way down at the bottom of the list, WHISTLE CREEK got an Honorable Mention. I'm still waiting to see if a check comes with that. Couldn't do it without you readers. Thank you.
New topic. Regular readers know that I have been playing guitar and singing with a bunch of people for the last year. I'm not adding any video today but you can see some on back issues of the blog or under Dennis Allen on YouTube. Anyway, a couple of Sundays ago my regular bunch was cancelled for the holidays. I tried a little coffeehouse/cafe out in the country. It went well. There were only a half dozen guys but it was fun and I went back last Sunday. No one else showed up. The owner said if I wanted to play she would back me on mandolin but would not sing. Well, I had driven a half hour to get there so I said what the heck. We played up every song I ever knew. It takes a lot of them when it's always your turn. Even with my limited talents, it went really well. No one threw anything and some of them said they actually liked it ! No accounting for taste is there? Thanks for stopping by.
