Germany and on to the Netherlands

We played on Sunday in Langenau, Germany, for our old friend, Peter Wroblewski and the Country Friends Koetz. Old friends and new. There were people there who have been following our music, individually and together, for 25 years. There were also some first timers. It was a beautiful evening.

We finished early. The show started at 6 and by 9;30 we were all in a restaurant for a late dinner.

The next morning I got an email that Peter and Anne Marie''s first grandchild was born at 3:30AM! Congratulations!

We left about 1PM and drove to the Netherlands on Monday. One stau (German traffic jam, stau is the better word, just feels right). We stopped and had dinner. Than some major rush hour traffic before Limburg, but sped on and arrived at the Hotel 't Zwaanje about 9P. Katy got settled and took me to the home of old friend Carel van Melis.

A few days off now. Getting my guitar worked on. The electronics have a bug of some kind. It's 25 years old.

I have some photos in Euro 2016 (hover your mouse over "Photos" and it will appear).  The sign at the rest stop is one of those translation issues. A literal English translation is "Place for parking your women". That's obviously NOT what it means, but what it really means isn't obvious at all.

The ducks in the other photos visit Carel every day and quack outside his door for bread. Sometimes they come separately, sometimes together. The neighborhood knows them as Carel's ducks.

We start the last leg of the tour on Friday in Emmer-Compascuum and finish on Monday in Bree, Belgium.

I'll let you know how it goes.

See you down the road.

    Yesterday evening a great performance of you and Kathy in Lichtenvoorde. Thank you very much. By the way "frauenparkplatz" means exactly what you fhink. It's usually a bit bigger than a regular parking space. Easier to get your groceries inside... Question: what is the title of the song "been a carpenter, like Jesus". We really love that song...

    thanks, Johannes! That song is called "I Know". It's on Only Along for the Ride. I'm so glad Adri and you could come. - Hugh
