This is the last newsletter of 2000. It’s early in December. Holiday weather has descended on much of the country. We were flying back to Arkansas from Philadelphia this week and saw lots of snow on the ground. It gets colder in Alberta, but for the two of us, it was plenty cold enough.
Trout tries to play in the Southern US during the winter months. We were in Florida just after the election and found that there was a huge diversity of response to the election outcome. Some people are serious and sensitive about it. The other side of the sensitivity issue was represented by the bumper sticker: “If you don’t like the way we count in Florida, go check out the other 56 states!” Imagine the controversy generated if the voting hang up had been in Arkansas!
We’re going to playing in Euless, TX for our sixth or seventh time for New Year’s Eve. Who’s counting and are you from Florida? This year, The Austin Lounge Lizards will be there. Fred Bogert, our producer and good friend, will be playing with us. You should be there, too. It will be fun and you won’t have to worry about the Y2K glitch.
Don’t let holiday shopping get you down. If you get stuck in mall traffic, put on some Trout music and relax.
