My host there in Springfield, Oregon was Karen and Ellis, who drove me almost 600 miles around, to see the cost and the big woods and the mountains with snow on the top.

Was lucky to stay at Hilton hotel and resort, there in town to 50% of the normal price, and has almost the most beautiful view in my life, when I was eating breakfast.

I was out with Bobby Kimmel, at his private house to a music rehearsal for group almost new group with name `I Hear Voices`, who include members of family Ronstadt and Kathy, two lady`s and two gentlemen all.
Bobby is known from Linda and Bobby`s old group, The Stone Poneys, who had a big hit around 1968-1969.
