We went up to Charlotteville to dine in MK's fine mid 19c barn. After a sumptuous late summers meal of salmon cooked on a cedar plank with fresh corn and some golden beet salad, Len Brunson treated us to some fine guitar picking and singing. When he passed his baby Collings guitar to Jeff Wilkinson we were further entertained with some of his original Americana roots inspired songs.

Freehand Burdock was driving by in his truck when I was unloading these old lawn chairs I got at a yard sale. He said he could re-webb them in no time. Sure enough a week later he dropped them off. Looking like new with a bit of Ho Jo's revival look, he said he got 4 packs of Frost King webbing at the local hardware store and was able to re use some of the original orange and nifty robins egg blue tweedy strips. Not bad for a couple of lightweight chairs that had been deep underwater in the last big flood and who knows what else in their 50 odd years of backyard fun.
