November 2000


Dear e-Fisherfolk:

The World Series is over! New York has won! OK, it was pretty much a no brainer that New York would win. That the Yankees won is strangely satisfying to Keith. It has something to do with the Mets defeating his beloved Astros in the 1986 playoffs. Something vaguely mumbled about a curse. And if you think about what’s happened to Strawberry, Gooden and Dykstra and other Met notables, you’ll know not to get on Keith’s bad side.

Tick and chigger season is over for the most part here in Northwest Arkansas (if you don’t know what a chigger is, you’re lucky). The woods are once again inhabitable by thin skinned bipeds. Ezra went up in the woods with his friends and family and took measurements for his perspective treehouse site. Ezra’s been dreaming of building a treehouse for a long time now and the second step of building has now been taken. The first step, of course, was to write the song, Dreaming. With the measurements in hand, the planning of the structure will be next. That’s one small step for an Idlet and one giant leap for a Grimwood kind.

You may have gotten our message about being featured artist on If you had any trouble finding us then try going to music/rock_and_pop/artists/trout_fishing_in_america/ This should get you right to the webcast. Once again, we’d like to thank the folks at Yahoo! for including us. We played in the actual Yahoo! offices and our audience was made up of Yahoo! employees. Imagine coming to work and having live music provided by your bosses for your lunch break. Other cool things about their office include a cappuccino bar and a foosball table.

If you look at our calendar, you’ll see that we’re going to Canada, Florida, Nevada and Pennsylvania, basically covering the four points of the compass.

Troutfully yours,
Keith and Ezra
