Smoked a nice Roast, two T-Bones and two Porthouse steaks today.
The City of Galena Illinois owns the famous Thomas Nast painting and the play will be performed 7 times this April at Galena's Turner Hall. The play ends in a tableau of the painting.
I portray General Custer and my usual General, John Corson Smith. My first foray into theater however.
Early in the night it was tweeted that Dylan "looked like he wanted to bite someone." By the end of the night he would. One being Merle Haggard.
Following the performances Dylan gave a 30 minute speech for the ages. A blend of sincere thank you's to the people who helped Bob along the way, some eloquent descriptions of songs and the times that created them and ripped on the pop-music elements including the songwriters responsible for them.
He criticized and praised equally. Displayed a fire in his belly still ablaze. His imagery strong. His study of music's past as diligent as ever. His focus intense and his charisma present.
I am very proud of Bob as he continues to carry the torch for an era that ended two generations ago. Now, he has chosen to make people notice.

Lucky to have passion careers, I have many interests and hobbies, which occasionally side track me. Including: Local History (Upper Midwest), canoeing, baseball history, antiques, meat smoking, Midwest travel, folk art, photography, genealogy, historic preservation, German-American culture, bibliophilia, Case/Ingersoll tractors, socializing and minimalism. I am expert on the music and life of Bob Dylan. I also enjoy roots and pre-1980 music and a few current artists. I don’t support big box stores or chains, don’t watch TV, do some hunting and fishing, display random acts of kindness and I occasionally portray Civil War General John Corson Smith.
