I’m in Powhatan, Virginia, with daughter Sarah and family this week; Sarah and husband James are dual-handedly building a new house in the woods. Here is the view of distant maple blossoms from the back of the house, on the now-framed second story:
We drove in the Green Expy to Powhatan, but Sunday we are heading to Tampa/St. Petersburg on Amtrak’s overnight Silver Star, where we’ll visit my cousin Spike and his wife. Amtrak took the dining car off the Silver Star a few years ago (not on the companion Silver Meteor, but that doesn’t go to Tampa), so we’ll pack sandwiches (and beer) for dinner. We’re returning to Powhatan after a week of playing tourist in Florida, and thence back to cold New England (it’s been off-and-on cold here, too).
In the meantime, enjoy pre-recorded Generic Hours (no weather, no Country Calendar). The Country Masters are at the French Club this Sunday (the 7th); and remember The Seldom Scene at the Belleville in Newburyport on Saturday the 13th. As Frank Dudgeon likes to say, I’ll talk to you on the 20th—live, that is. Where is Frank, anyway? /CL
