||We are happy to say that Cowboy Johnson and his wife Amanda showed up here in Alameda, CA for a short gig about 15 minutes away. It wasn't advertised so the attendance was not large but the concert was wonderful. Good to hear the two of them singing. Good to have them stay with us too. However, Cowboy and I were outvoted by our wives and today they all left to go to a White Elephant sale that benefits the Oakland Museum. My wife works there and our guests are lined up to purchase clothing that are priced originally for upwards of $3-400.00 and on sale for anywhere from $4.00 to $50.00. How can women pass this up. My wife brought home a two piece outfit that still had the original price tag from a very expensive shop for $400.00 and she will pay maybe 10% of that. Cowboy will come back here wishing he had never taken his woman to a sale. Instead of spending $400.00 for one item it will be 25 items for that amount. They will have to stuff them into their guitars to sneal them on the airplane. He is heading to the Gold country for a gig tomorrow. Until then we will gossip about all of you Mickey Newbury fans and family.
