Message:  HOW a pick up at the AIRPORT can be!

THE life of mine have never been the same since.

THIS story have been printed before at THE FRONT PORCH - a true - true - true STORY!

From my friend Mister DOUG LANG from Canada, great singer-, songwriter and about the pick up of me at the airport in Austin back in the year 2004!

Erik, I am so glad that you're back
for a encore at Gathering V. You are
a unique and generous man!

I urge all attendees to begin now
volunteering to pick Erik up
at the airport in Austin.

Look for the diminutive fellow
in the bright red t-shirt
that says DANMARK. Last year...

Joe Gilchrist and I walked through
a crowded Austin-Bergstrom airport with
no description whatsoever to go by

yelling at the top of our lungs,
until our faces were crimson

and spittle was rocketing from
our lips. Wary, bug-eyed travellers
moved aside, looking at us like we

were mad Vikings about to take over
the entire state of Texas as soon as
our vaunted Danish leader arrived.

Erik is an encyclopedia of knowledge
about recordings by Mickey Newbury,
Jimmy Webb, and others,

and can talk a blue streak without
ever taking a breath, it seems...
his passion providing his oxygen.

So, volunteer now to pick Erik up.
I guarantee you will remember it
the rest of your life.

It'd be best if you have no identifying
clues, a very loud voice, and be willing
to scare the poop out of strangers.

Hahaha...wasn't that a time!

Still THANKS for all nice words DOUG!

After this 2007 Gathering and a 10 days stay in Austin I take home and almost right away have a extra holiday - 3 weeks, one week at a ecology farm with animals with Grandchild HJALTE (3), and maybe one week then in Berlin, Germany.
