Red White and Bluegrass Early Sales Figures

        It’s early evening. A cool breeze has knocked off the heat. The cidadias sing in the trees. My brand new virgin white Ez-Up tent tried to trap me like an octopus changing clothes in a phone booth, but I out-witted the rascal, and didn’t even pinch my fingers. A talented new family band is on the stage.

        I get my mandolin off the stand at my side and play along.  I’ve never been a biz guy, but early sales are brisk. I send the profits with my Marfar to scout for supper, and I know we have enough left over for Mr. Harold’s home-made ice cream too.

        Doc is a pig in mud. The business plan was only enacted one hour ago and it works to perfection. I’m where I’ve always been, just nowadays I have a book and a tent instead of sitting in the sun. This is total tranquility. Y’all come visit.

    I shall have our book accompany me on my next vacation (which is quickly approaching). So glad your sales went well at the fester.

    It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy….

      Man it was surreal. RWB was great stage bands, jam sessions, the best food, and gallons of Arnold Palmers. (half lemonade/half sweet tea) On top of it all was acceptance by the bluegrass family of my novel beyond my wildest dreams.

      I can’t comprehend it all.

      Dr. B
