November 5 at the Roundhouse Theatre in Vancouver’s Yaletown — Bluebird North was a fine event. Shari Ulrich did an excellent job of hosting and the songwriters were a greatly diverse group so the night went well. Nov 6 I stayed in Vancouver and was fortunate enough to get a ticket to see Emmy Lou Harris with Rodney Crowell and a great band at the Orpheum. She is a treasure.

My wife, Jane and I are off to Cuba for a few weeks. Communication will be pretty sketchy – quite possibly nonexistent. We will attend a wedding celebration, do some bicycling, visit Valentin and Maria Puentes and hopefully catch some sun. The music will be great. I can do this. Tomorrow is Remembrance day. We are so fortunate to be Canadian.

Take care ! mp
