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.

I didn't remember this song until I looked it up. Then, I remembered, but I guess I never paid attention to the words. My! What a strange song! Well, it's not really a song... it's a story! A long, strange story!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Arlo Guthrie rises again ... on that mystery ship with the 73 men in the San Francisco Bay ... :wink:


No wait ... I'm wrong. :shock:


Now I'm getting my hippie music screwed up. :angry:



Flower Power forever and Happy Thanksgiving. :)

I seem to remember this thread.
Can always count of the Wench for a bump. :rose:


Arlo is still kicking around and still playing.

Hi Holby! :hug: So good to see you!

And thanks for the link....Arlo lives in my area (which means he lives just west of your area I believe). He's a big supporter of our public radio station so he's on it a lot and such. He's definitely still singing and very active around here. Actually, he's not far from you either....in the Berkshires.

I didn't get to see his Alices Restaurant tour recently.....bummer.

Well, it's coming around on the guitar.......

And they all moved down to the other end of the Group W bench...

...which, by the way, is the name of a small shop here in New Haven that's been here for forty years, as funky as ever.

I think we have that LP around here, who knows... I know we have all the albums he had up to about ten or fifteen years ago or whenever it was that he came to New Haven for the annual folk fest. We went to that and as a result bought every tape there, so we have a pretty huge collection of his stuff on cassette. It was a great show.

I had forgotten that the setting of the song was Thanksgiving! Thanks for the bump!

yay this thread has come around on the guitar again. God bless Gamgee Wench

Yes Rose the song is not really a song but a story, and not unlike this thread. THis thread is over 8 years old now.

For a wonderful version of a little song that Arlo's dad wrote and he is singing along with some other old guy :)

Went to the dump, but there was a chain across it with a sign "Closed on Thanksgiving." Never heard of a dump closed on Thansgiving before.

Well, everybody, get in your red VW microbus with shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and go have a Thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat, go to bed and don't get up until the next morning when you get a phone call from Officer Obie.

Today, dinner at hubby's sister-in-law's sister's house; tomorrow we head for Darkovercon in Maryland, to return next Monday because travel on Sunday will be ridiculous!!

Have a blessed weekend, everyone.

Well, it's getting that time again, and time to resurrect this thread for Thanksgiving.

I never heard of a dump being closed on Thanksgiving before, so with tears in our eyes, we went off to find another place to dump the garbage. :P

Well look what thread is coming around on the guitar again.....

Thanksgiving will be different for us this year as it is the first major holiday for my wife since her mom died. I will have the radio on at noon though the same as always for the playing of Alice's Restaurant.

But this is a thread about Alice.... and Gamgee Wench, Gimli, and everyone else that has posted in this thread.

Good to see everyone. Now post.... with feeling

Today I feel as if I have been injected, inspected, detected, infected,
neglected and selected. Because you can get anything you want, except Alice, at Alice's Restaurant!!

Wait for it......

Happy Thanksgiving to all and to all a good night.

He said, "Kid, we don't want a hangin'."

I said, "Officer Opie, did you think I was going to hang myself over litterin'?"


I see the throng has arrived. Hi all! It's been a while. Fortunately, I saw Miss Gamgee post about this on Facebook.

Everybody get in your red VW microbus with shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and head off to the dump.
