Message:  Just back from seeing Kris Kristofferson in Charlotteville, VA...two hours...Kris...guitar...spotli​ght...that's it! Great show. Many old favorites. Guy sitting behind us seemed to think we wanted to hear him sing the words instead of Kris...Duh! Got the book and a poster signed. Gave him a copy of Doug Lang's "A Woman Named McGee"...wonderful song about looking for Bobby McGee 25 years later.

Kris sang one song that he said he wrote trying to imitate Mickey...and also introduced "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down" as a song he couldn't have written without Mickey's influence.

2 1/2 hour drive back home. Devan (my son from Phoenix) leaves tomorrow. Sigh!
