Subject:  America here I come, include Canada!
Message:  My longest music-, holiday- fun-, maybe goodbye trip - in some ways, start out from Denmark 7th JUNE.

There be a LOT change of aircraft on my way.
Many time I am only 1-2 hours in air.

First I am flying in to Seattle, WA, over both Amsterdam, Salt Lake City and ends up same day late in Eugene, Springfield, OR state, 5 night stay.

Hope to visiting Mickey`s grave, meet dear Karen and maybe some of The Newbury`s and other there.

Flying out from Eugene 12th JUNE to Tucson, AZ and with family to famous girlsinger Linda Ronstadt there, 5 night stay.

We, the Ronstadt group, maybe from Tucson even flying or drive "back to" Los Angeles, and stay a night over, because at the 15th JUNE to see and hear dear Jimmy Webb in concert include his big evergreen tune "MacArthur Park" in the park MacArthur Park, and this song is about this park and a lost love.

FOR FUN I can ad, that this song "about the park" was both # no. 2. and # no. 1. late 1960`ties with actor Richard Harris and late 1970`ties Number One with Donna Summer and the BIGGEST Billboard hitlist.

We (I) then are back super short in Tucson, and I leave 17th JUNE for "my other home", Austin, TX, and The Mickey Newbury Gathering and all my dear friends there, 8 nights stay.

25th JUNE I leave Austin for New York City for a 4 nights stay.
Hope again to see Jimmy Webb in concerts at The Cutting Room 28th JUNE.

Remember last year in JUNE, I was with J.W.s lovely wife Laura, first out to eat at a fancy restaurant, and then downtown to say hello to my friend Denny and see his movie about The Wrecking Crew also in The Cutting Room.
Denny`s father was the legendary lead guitar player Tommy Tedesco in that in many ways Phil Spector studio group.

Maybe also in NYC meet dear old J.W. fan and good friend Jon, who sadly got a stroke a while ago, but hopefully "is on way back".

Then leave out from NYC and JFK airport for Ottawa, Canada and another old J.W. fan Bruno.
Also a 4 nights stay there.

Leave out from Ottawa 3th JULY, short flying in to Toronto, then a stop in US of A, then away to Amsterdam and from there flying back to Denmark, Copenhagen.
