Just got home after a trip to The USA. We flew to Chicago, picked up a rental car and drove down part of the former "Route 66" to St Louis. In St Louis we visited my friend, Susan, who was a wonderful host and guide, did some sightseeing and went to a blues jam in which I played with a borrowed guitar. Then we drove down through Missouri, Arkansas and Tennessee to Mississippi.

Then we stayed with the cousins in The Delta, did the King Biscuit Time radio show with Sonny Payne in Helena, AR and a river trip with John Ruskey of The Quapaw Canoe Company. Our last weekend was spent mostly in Clarksdale for The Juke Joint Festival in which I played at The Bank stage with Da Bones Man, my friend Randy Seppala.
