Los Lobos Concert!

Orale’, we went to see Los Lobos on Saturday all the way over in Council Bluffs, Iowa . . . . and it was a great show! I got some great shots of the band:

We ran into Tom’s daughter, Willa, and son-in-law, Dominique!

I asked Cesar Rosas for a photo (he’s the one with the goatee).

Steve Berlin

Louie Perez

These are great guys. After performing facing into the sun, in 98 degree weather and 150% humidity, they were available for autographs and pictures. We saw them 3 years ago – and same thing, all the guys were super approachable and just great musicians. Tan talentosos!

Tom’s take on the concert . . . “Dame mas y mas y mas y mas” . . . sez that “Colossal Head” is one of his desert island cds.

Ahh, there’s nothing like sleeping in one’s own bed! FYI, I did get back to to Lincoln sana y salva. I took yesterday off to recuperate, but did a little gardening. Tom did harvest tomatoes in my absence, here’s the proof:

He left a few tomatoes and two squash for me to pick. I also have a butternut squash growing! Last night we had pasta with tomatoes and tons of fresh herbs with garlic. It is great to eat from our tiny garden . . . hopefully next summer I will have arranged for a larger, more productive garden.

Oh, BTW, I will be leading a canning workshop next Saturday at Antelope Brethren Church through Community CROPS. There is still space for participants and it is free, so contact Community CROPS (link on my sidebar).
