Alice's Restaurant

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Maybe with this thread and a few hundred more years I can get Ringbearer. Waves at all the cool kids on the Group W bench.

It was a case of American blind justice, and he wasn't going to look at the 27 8x10 glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one telling what each one was to be used as evidence against us.

Just got my disk out and will have it playing soon. I will listen to it as I clean up the house. Goodness how I love the Group W bench. It truly is where I belong. :twisted:

Gotta run, it's coming around on the guitar..... :)

(Thanks to everyone for keeping this relic of a thread going! I'm beginning to feel like a relic myself. :D )

We found your name on an envelope at the bottom of a half a ton of
Garbage, and just wanted to know if you had any information about it......

After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
Police officer's station. .....

So we got in the red VW microbus with the
Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
Police officer's station.


Been a big year at the FFerret house. Had another little 'un--third one's the charm--her name is "Kitty." Little blonde babe born on Palm Sunday. The last trimester was a little rocky because I'm up there in years. She was born six weeks early and staid in baby ICU for exactly six weeks. She's fine :)

I am actually going to bring this thread back up again in honor of Pete Seeger passing away earlier this week at the age of '94. Growing up I had to listen to folk music like Arlo and Seeger, and at the time I did not appreciate it. Like many things that you dislike when you are a kid as you get older you realize it is part of who you are. Here is what Arlo posted about earlier this week.


Pete Seeger:

I usually do a little meditation and prayer every night before I go to sleep - Just part of the routine. Last night, I decided to go visit Pete Seeger for a while, just to spend a little time together, it was around 9 PM. So I was sitting in my home in Florida, having a lovely chat with Pete, who was in a hospital in New York City. That's the great thing about thoughts and prayers- You can go or be anywhere.

I simply wanted him to know that I loved him dearly, like a father in some ways, a mentor in others and just as a dear friend a lot of the time. I'd grown up that way - loving the Seegers - Pete & Toshi and all their family.

I let him know I was having trouble writing his obituary (as I'd been asked) but it seemed just so silly and I couldn't think of anything that didn't sound trite or plain stupid. "They'll say something appropriate in the news," we agreed. We laughed, we talked, and I took my leave about 9:30 last night.

"Arlo" he said, sounding just like the man I've known all of my life, "I guess I'll see ya later." I've always loved the rising and falling inflections in his voice. "Pete," I said. "I guess we will."

I turned off the light and closed my eyes and fell asleep until very early this morning, about 3 AM when the texts and phone calls started coming in from friends telling me Pete had passed away.

"Well, of course he passed away!" I'm telling everyone this morning. "But that doesn't mean he's gone."

I was looking for an Arlo Guthrie topic in the Music forum and surprisingly there was none. Search did find this though!

I believe the yanks are getting ready for a thanksgiving feast that couldn't be beat? It should be coming around on the guitar in a couple weeks?

Alices Restaurant Massacree 1967

Alices Restaurant Massacree Revisited 1996

Don't have this holiday here, but may have to have a feast in honour of Arlo!

Thank you for pulling this to the top again Aressuil! This year we are having everyone at my house that can come....and it will be quite a few, and my neighbor called last night to say they would join us for dessert but only if we played Alice's Restaurant. Which, of course, we will. :D

I do believe I hear it coming around on the guitar.......
