Did you happen to catch the Ricky Gervais show this last Saturday? Thought I saw you and Sarah Vowell...

If you'd like I can see if there are any Hobo pictures in the archives at the CRRM. I'm sure I can find some. This photo is just wonderful and I also thank the person who posted it.

For some reason, when I opened up the blog today I was listening to Jimmy Dorsey's Amapola (you know the version with Helen O'Connell on vocals, sometimes called Pretty Little Poppy). Anyway, I imagined these tramps fighting to the song, and presto! The scene emerged in amazing technicolor right before my eyes. I put it up on flckr and in the h in sunrays pool. Check it out here.

Erg. As it turns out, I was listening to Helen Forrest with the Benny Goodman Orchestra, doing Amapola. Sorry for the confusion.

You know Kottke? Wow, this is indeed a small world.

I take it you mean Leo? Ooo, memories of the early 1970s are smacking me in the head like a fish right now.
