San Francisco, Squirrels, Turkeys, and Ditch Crickets

9/29: The Squirrel Show?, 9/30: no “The Kids’ Show”

Hello. I hope you’re having a great day!

There is no “The Squirrel Show” or “The Kids’ Show” this week.  It’s pretty rare to miss them both since the pandemic started. I’m in San Francisco today, playing at the “Hardly Strictly Bluegrass” festival tomorrow. Sometimes you travel and play a big show. For me, usually not. 

There are a bunch of other shows too. Here’s the list for October:

?9/29:   The Squirrel Show? Maybe? Broadcast late from around San Francisco somewhere? Don’t hold your breath. There’s better things to do.

Yeah, so, a lot of shows this month. It’s a good thing I like what I do.

If you want a Singing Telegram (with Distance), I’ll get you a singing telegram! Check it out here: Also, 

The Squirrel Show is brought to you by Lobster Guru. “Lobster Guru, he knows what they’re thinking.”

…I say something like that every month. Usually with a little more pizazz and effort to entertain somehow. Today? I dunno. Just a little melancholy. It’ll pass. Things are fine. I like what I do. Just… where I am. I hope you’re having a great day, and I hope to see you soon. Take care!
