Location: Eureka, California, United States

My front porch in Old Town Eureka is known as The Sunny Side. Southern exposure, protected from the wind, it is an ideal place to sit and play old timey tunes and watch the parade go by.

Remembering Woody

Lots of folks turned out at Has Beans today to share memories, songs and poetry about our good friend Woody. It was standing room only in the Beans. Lots of good food and company.

Our dear friend James Wood, affectionately known as Woody, passed away last night at St. Joseph Hospital. He had simply collapsed in the sun on Saturday, May 16th, was rushed to the hospital and had been laying unconscious since. I loved his rendition of Ain't Misbehaving. He was such good company. He never had an unkind word to say about anything or anybody. He'll always be fondly remembered by all that knew him.

Stevo's Brothers

Stevo's brothers Nick and Dave are visiting from Philadelphia and Santa Cruz.

Stevo, Dave, Jimmy Jack and I used to share an apartment in Pasadena in 1969, 40 years ago. Our front porch looked just like this.

Dave's still got it.

We'll all be at Has Beans tonight watching Stevo's band Scotch Wiggly play.
