Where are we today ?
clic on a pic to make it largerToday another early morning walkabout and a great sunrise. Gonna be a very nice warm day up to 76f but with a south wind at 18 mph and partially overcast skies. We can deal with this no problem and no blowing dust.
So about mid morning I got it going so we could have soup for lunch Chicken noodle soup recipe click HERE or my recipe blog top right side bar. We do love our chicken and have lotsa leftovers.
Then at 2 pm we choose to go to the QIA (Quartzsite Improvement Association) Paul Winer is doing 2 shows today 2 pm and 7 pm. With the hot windy day we choose this earlier show. Paul is known and the Naked Bookseller at Reader's Oasis Bookstore in town. He performed his Boogey Woogie Blues 45 years ago in the Eastern USA and Canada under the name Sweet pie.

He is one heck of an entertainer. Great stories, funny jokes as well as some very good music. Five musicians here altogether. Antics like a wardrobe malfunction, he had trouble with buttons his shirt. (not used to wearing clothes) and a few outfit changes too. Funny songs like Blue Boy Blues and more. Or "hey you want a cold beer? put it next to my ex wife's heart and on and on. We had 2/12 hours of very good entertainment. He is amazingly active for 73 years old and the other musicians up into their mid 80's.
He talked about himself and the band history wanted us to get to know him. He says in the store nobody asks a naked man "how's it going?"
Telling us the story of his Western shirt. He was selling books at a Fleamarket in Arizona and the vendor had a truck load of these shirts below. And was completely sold out at the end of the day. He knows they are western shirts because everyone was sold to somebody wearing a cowboy hat and boots. If you are in the area and ever get a change to see Paul Winer perform it is a very worthwhile show.
We got home shortly after 4:30 and set up the windscreen for our Weber Q. And Enjoyed this very interesting Beer George brought me yesterday. An India Pale Ale with Habanero Peppers in it. Right up my alley, a beer with a kick.
