When he and his wife Rhonda came to look at my guest casita to rent, they could not have been nicer. And in the 1 1/2 years that they lived there, while they built their home in San Miguel, they were ALWAYS gracious and kind.
The photo above shows how open and friendly John is to everyone. He's conversing with Deb about her late husband Hoyt Axton before his performance out at Patsy's Place this past Sunday. At some point, in his long career, John recorded with Hoyt. He said it was "very interesting".
She, I and my friends Ron and Fred went out to hear John sing and to have a delicious lunch. One of his comments, "Engelbert Humperdink is in Las Vegas and I'm on the outskirts of San Miguel" brought laughter. Of course John performs EVERYWHERE all year long. They are always on a plane going somewhere. We're all glad when he can get a little rest and be back "home".
One of the funniest things he said, which I'll never forget was, "They told me the upper crust from San Miguel would be here today. So I looked up "crust" in the dictionary and it said, a lot of little crumbs held together by dough". OMG, did I laugh..........as did others.
A great afternoon enjoyed by all. There were probably at least 100 people there and the small venue just added to the enjoyment.
So, if he ever does this again, and you haven't been, get out to Patsy's Place for a musical and culinary afternoon.
