Reinbeck Brouhaha

If you have read this blog for a while you might remember that in the late summer and fall Erica and I like to go up to apple country. Dutchess county is beautiful in the fall. Erica and I like Red Hook and Reinbeck. We do some of Christmas shopping there and the Beekman Arms has one of the best Sunday brunches anywhere.

The sleepy little town that I have enjoyed is being co-opted this weekend by politicians and celebrities. I am embarrassed to see the crowds of people on the streets looking to catch a glimpse of someone famous. The Clinton Wedding has ruined the place.

I can only hope that it all settles down by Labor Day. I want to drive up and buy my apple pies and have lunch at the diner in Red Hook. I hope that the Reinbeck goes back to sleep after all of this is over.

    Privacy, tranquility, and pie. Sounded like a lovely place.

    When I get together the funds to build a 10 square mile series of interconnected bio-domes populated solely by sentient bipedal anthropomorphic rabbit men, I’ll be sure to bake a few banana crème and key lime pies for my family of non-humans to eat.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
