December has been sneaking up on us. The unseasonably mild temperatures may have lulled us to sleep a bit, comfortable that the Holiday Season was a thing of the distant future. BEWARE! We at TFIA Headquarters have looked at the weather forecast for our area and have noticed that all this is about to change. Temperatures are about to drop like a stone and cold winds are about to blow. Some Ozarks locals count August fogs to predict how many snows we’ll have over the winter. In case you’re wondering, we had eight this year. That sounds serious. We have no idea what this means for the rest of the country, but you can be sure that unless you live in Miami, it’s about to get a lot colder.
One of the things you can do to stay warm if you live in Arkansas is to sit home and watch TV. That’s right. You heard us. Stay home and watch TV. Why? Because our PBS special AETN Presents: Front Row with Trout Fishing in America, My Best Day will be aired. You will have several opportunities to see it – December 2nd at 12:30pm, 6th at 7pm, 7th at 6:30pm, 8th at 6:30pm, and the 10th at 8am and 7pm. The DVD looks and sounds terrific! Keith and Ezra will be visiting the AETN studios on December 6th to promote this event. Don’t miss it!
The end of the year is a good time to look back and see where you’ve been and what you’ve done. We find it sort of puts things into perspective. By the end of 2006, we will have played 107 total dates (sometimes two or three shows in a day) in 22 states (AR, CA, CO, FL, IA, IL, KS, KY, LA, MD, MO, MT, NC, NJ, NM, NY, OH, OK, PA, TX, UT, VA) and Washington, DC. In September, we released our 13th CD, My Best Day, that is also available on DVD. Keith and Ezra have now passed the 30-year mark of playing music together. And yes, it’s still fun. Thank you to everyone who has made this possible.
