Don't look now, but I think it just became summer in the Northwest. Good thing too because this is the time of year we like to be outside. Gardens are already teeming with good things to eat and the 42nd Oregon Country Fair begins Friday and even before that, this Tuesday is a huge Eugene celebration of the Centennial of Woody Guthrie, an outdoor street concert in the Whiteaker neighbourhood and a benefit for Anne Feeney and featuring Anne and her trio, Mark Ross and Adam Moss, Chris Chandler, me and many others.
Sure is good to be back where it is cool and glad to see familiar faces smiling in the sun.
