Monday, September 19, 2022 - Ahh...Fall

There are two things happening this week that really signal that fall is here for me. 1) The first day of fall is on the 22nd, and 2) my family is closing cabins for the winter. Of course it’s getting cooler in the mornings which feels great, and the weeds I’ve been battling on our morning walks are drying and dying out so I don’t have to whack them daily. I love this time of year. The leaves are turning in the high country, and everything is slowing down. It just fills me with peace and completeness. We’ve planted mini/micro clover so we can phase out our grass to use less water in the future, and we're starting to turn our thoughts to plans for the winter. It is a time of reflection and introspection. So Wednesday evening I’ll celebrate this beautiful change of seasons with songs of fall. To me it is one big Ahh… 

What have I been up to? 

I forgot to say how many senior facilities I was playing for last week in my last blog. I actually had 9 in addition to playing for many of them at once at the Senior Safari at the Pueblo Zoo. I enjoyed every one of them although I confess I haven’t had time to keep up with learning requests for many of them. 

Wednesday was the afore-mentioned Senior Safari which was a blast with so many familiar faces and such a wonderful energy in everyone involved. I hope this event can go many, many years into the future. 

Wednesday was also my online concert of “middle-aged” country songs. It was really well-received, and many more people love country music in our group than I realized. We’ll have to do country more often. 

Sunday my online show of favorites and requests was so much fun even though several of our regulars couldn’t make it. We have such a giving and caring group who love music so much that it’s always a rewarding evening. 


What am I up to this week? 

I have 8 senior facilities this week, and I’m looking forward to all of them. We have a vet appointment for Tuzi for a dental on Wednesday, so I’ll take that day to be with her until the evening online concert, so I won’t have quite as many as usual. 

My Wednesday online show 7-8:30 mountain time will be fall songs as I mentioned above. I have several new songs from the last couple years about fall that I really love in addition to many of the classic fall songs we all know.  

My Sunday online show 7-8:30 mountain time will be favorites and requests with our wonderful group as always. It will be special, and I’ll have all the energy of the mountains coming in from closing the cabins with my siblings. 


That’s it for this week. I hope you’re enjoying the fall season wherever you are. It’s still hot here for a couple days until it starts feeling more like fall. I do have two gigs out and about coming up that you may be interested in 1) Deer Print Wine in La Veta during Oktoberfest October 1st - probably 6-8, and 2) Littleton Museum Harvest Festival October 8th from 11:30-1:30. So if you’re near La Veta or Denver please come out and say “Hi!” I’ll write more about these as they come into view. 

Best always,
