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 was thinking about this thread as I drove back from my sister's place.

Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago, that's two years ago on Thanksgiving, when my friend and I went up to see Alice at the restaurant. But Alice doesn't live in the restaurant. She lives in the church nearby the restaurant, in the belltower with her husband Ray and Fasha the dog...

It looks like November has come around on the calendar. Time to resurrect Arlo.

I said, "I didnt get nothing, I had to pay $50 and pick up the garbage." He said, What were you arrested for, kid?" And I said, "Littering"

And livin' in the bell tower like that, they got a lot of
room downstairs where the pews used to be in. Havin' all that room,
seein' as how they took out all the pews, they decided that they didn't
have to take out their garbage for a long time.

Then with his 27 8x10 color glossy pictures and began to cry, because he knew this was another case of American blind justice, and the judge wasn't going to look at the 27 8x10 color 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.

I went over to the sergeant and said, "Sergeant, you got a lot a damn gall to ask me if I've rehabilitated myself, I mean, I mean, I mean I'm sitting here on the Group W bench because you want to know if I'm moral enough to join the army, burn women, kids, houses and villages after being a litterbug." He looked at me and said, "Kid, we dont like your kind, and we're going to send your fingerprints off to Washington."

And friends, somewhere in Washington enshrined in some little folder, is a
study in black and white of my fingerprints. And the only reason I'm
singing you this song now is cause you may know somebody in a similar
situation, or you may be in a similar situation, and if your in a
situation like that there's only one thing you can do and that's walk into
the shrink wherever you are ,just walk in say:

Arlo was in town last night for a couple of hours of song and comment.

He did "This Land" with his Joseph story

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8xur9UQ ... re=related

and ended with his "Peace" bit, written by Woody while in the hospital which I leaned will be in the family album coming out this September.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWBl5wff ... re=related

He performed many of Woody's songs, and mentioned that this coming July will be his dad's hundredth birthday.

He also mentioned an obscure tv series he did in Hawaii, which I vaguely recall watching, "The Byrds of Paradise".

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgZqxdjX ... re=related

With Jennifer L. Hewitt

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imiFX2CHIRE

Fantastic evening.

ps: no "Alice" although he started . . . . . . :)

basilllly that is so cool that you got to see Arlo!! Thanks for all the links. I can't believe he didn't do "Alice". What?????

Anyway, I am going to check and see if he is coming this way, it would be a blast to see him.

Glad you had a great time. :D

Mr. Basil-dude! So glad you got to see Arlo! He and his family (including his father) live in my area so they are around a lot doing concerts and fundraisers etc. for the Clearwater group (eco group for the Hudson River started by Woodie). Sadly, I've never been able to see him, yet.

And he doesn't do Alice's Restaurant as a rule. He did do it on his tour a few years back but that was because it was the Alices' restuarant tour. I really wanted to see that one but either time or money didn't let me.....who knows which.

Hugs to Rwhen, Tooks and the Basil dude. :hug:

OK....back to work for me....
