     How all of this at the bottom of this note pretains I am not sure, but 
     there is some voyeuristic entertainment value....  The top bit is from 
     a friend that just called the Music hall....
     Ta. Joe.
     thought you might want to see the interest your email re: the "tiny 
     show" generated.  should be a blast.  great amer. music hall says they 
     don't post concert info or sell tickets until 4-6 weeks in advance. 
     FYI.  i'll keep bugging them.  send whittemore a note that asks them 
     to post if there are changes, people spending lots on airfare to get 
     here for the show blah blah.

You know I probably could deduct it. I'm self employed doing photography and desktop publishing. I'd ask my accountant but he mumbles so incoherently I'd probably get the answer backwards. I use him because he's very good about finding "special" deductibles.      

I'll save my rant about our gov't for later.

I'm starting to really consider it. I could use a lost weekend road trip. My best friend and fellow JBC fan would probably be into it if he hadn't just gone to SF two weeks ago. If I could get the deal he got (drove to Seattle; $99 return air from there) it might just twist my rubber arm the right way.

I resent that. My mother has no class... Well, she does really, but I can't resist some of those cheap laughs...chuckles...grimaces.

I've done the other tapes I had to but I'm still working on yours. They'll be done soon. As for the tickets, if you notice anything about the show being confirmed or ads saying when tickets go on sale please let me know so I can hasten my decision one way or the other.      

I get the feeling they are in town for something like a wedding and thought,"why not defray some costs while we're there". Could even be David Whittemore's wedding although I think his involvement with the JBC was/is post Max.
