Saturday night, I went to the Lakeland Jamboree in Cadiz, Ky.

The last time I went it was a $2 or $3 cover and no beer since its a dry county. My Aunt Lilly was there along with a lot of older ladies in their 80’s. It was pretty relaxed as far as shows go. The Grand Ole Opry is relaxed, too, with people walking back and forth on stage while the guest artist is playing.

During that show, there was a guy standing in the back of the room wearing a dress stuffed with a pillow, as if he were pregnant, grinning just as big as he could. When it was his time he walked to the stage as a cd played Loretta Lynn’s “One’s on the Way”...

Bethlehem, PA is a nice town

Yesterday, Sxip, Adam, and I did a storytelling presentation at LeHigh University. It was great fun. Sxip’s an amazing storyteller. He’s into magic realism. Adam gave a history of beatbox/vocal percussion, explaining the difference between the two. I described my story writing process and gave examples of my work. It was a great group. A fellow named Mason cooked for everyone and it was very relaxed. Deborah, the sweet woman who booked us, took us to lunch at the faculty lounge. We were going to eat in the “Hogwarts” cafeteria but it was being used.

We went to the other cafeteria and had a nice lunch with Dave, the fellow who takes care of things, and Deborah. It’s been a while since I’ve had wedding-style buffet...
