winnipeg visit

Sorry for the blatherless week, folks. Our long weekend in Winnipeg was incredibly fun...Allison will eventually be posting a report about it. Many, many, many thanks to Dave and Tom and everyone else we met at the Bhigg House! Highlights for me include: playing onstage with Dandelion Wine at one of their outdoor gigs, Dave Clement's Amazing Homemade Chili, musicking late Sunday night, new friends, my first glass of Dandelion Wine, performing live on Tom's radio show (after the initial terror wore off, that is), Keycon concert, finding Cheez Whiz (tm) in the Bhigg House fridge, spending too much money at Toad House Toys (thanks, Kylea!), visiting The Forks with Tom, seeing Graham's dog Scooter again, buying a mini-rainstick at Homemade Music, mini-donuts, finally finding out how to play the bones, my special Northumbrian pipes lesson (thanks, Al!), BSDI honey-cinnamon milkshakes! Everyone went out of their way to make Jodi, Allison & I feel welcome...thanks so much!
