Special guests on the Winners and Losers show tomorrow morning…

Mr. Bill

Mr. Bill O’Meara and Ben Snyder, two of my friends from the Timber Frame Folly who are working hard on the Rube Carnival we’re pulling off for kids and adults like us who never forgot how to be kids, will be my guests tomorrow at WSHC (89.7 FM) starting at 8:00 AM. On line we’re at http://www.897wshc.org.

Ben

We’ll be talking about the Carnival, the Folly in general, music, chickens and just about anything else we can think of. You can also call in and talk with these fellas at 304-876-5369.

We’re getting closer to the Carnival, Sept. 10 and 11, and there’s a lot to get ready, which we’ll talk about tomorrow. Plus I’ll be there at 7:30 AM with my warmup for the morning as I substitute for John Case..

Pizza Oven Construction at The Folly

We started work on the pizza oven for the Carnival this morning (actually, I did very little work, but documented the endeavor with pictures). Looks like we just missed the thunderstorms that are rolling in for the afternoon. Joy Bridy ran the workshop (I believe she said this was her third outdoor oven.)

Looks like a couple of more weeks to go…

A Zappadan view of Frank and what he stood for…

Boy, I miss Frank.

Let’s start with his comments on Crossfire when he made sure people realize that we shouldn’t censor “words”:

…and we’ll top that off with Frank’s cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven”:

Did I say I missed Frank? I’ll bet Robert Plant misses him, too.
