On the subject of GBNF...how about Sandra West? San Antonio has many "unique" items of interest. Mrs. West certainly leads in the Top 10! Anyone remember the local responses to her "unconventional" last wishes?

I had met Sandra once back in the early 70's as I recall. I do remember that I was not impressed. For a so called "socialite" I didn't see any substance there at all. Most likely the Ferrari she was buried in is now a pile of rust. Kinda like the 57 Plymouth they buried that came up a rusted hulk in Tulsa.

What a picture Rancho. Those look a lot like two street smudgepots in the background.

Those old smudge pots might ward of these hoards of mosquitoes. I should have collected and saved some.

Municipal Auditorium - Gone But Not Forgotten.

heard Bob Dylan there twice. first in 75, again in 004.

also gbnf the Astrodome, heard Dylan there again, in 75.

today, Dylan received a Nobel Award.

Dylan, and the Auditorium, both mean a lot to me.

a Nobel Award, not so much after what they did in 008.

According to one of those misinformed buggy drivers downtown near the Alamo, the Tobin Center was never the Municipal Auditorium. Saw that award for Dylan! I agree the award doesn't mean much after 007 and 009.

yessir. to me the award doesn't mean much.

but, Dylan, for me is one of, if not the best ever songwriters.

(Paycheck would be second on my list).

heard Dylan again at the Majestic in about 95.

if there was ever a doubt about his prowess on the guitar, he picked that thing out of this world.

the only disappointment that evening, he didn't play the harmonica.

they did about 30-45 minutes unplugged, outstanding.

link below, this was last week in californica.

go full screen. watch his face particularly in the last few minutes.

at 75 years old he (and I) know he is the greatest........

Looks happy and not bad for 75....

Here's some harmonica from someone who's not bad either.
