I hope Lemon didn't have to demonstrate that particular ability too many times, like a parlor trick.
All best,

I was bare-footed, naked, out in the ice and snow, with all my yes-yes out, 'nd see my big toe
I was bare-footed, didn't have on no shoes, and the rocks gravel and concrete is giving my toe the blues.

Del played tougher than a boiled owl, and I still pity the fool what?s got to follow her on to the stage. She sang prettier than many a woman with a guitar known primarily for their voice. Her original instrumental, Wobbly Walk, inspired by chapters 16-18 (Debbs and Socialism) of  Howard Zinn?s classic People?s History of the United States is a hoot and conjures up a Chaplanesque Bo of old, IWW card fresh in hand, struttin? his stuff - Mr O'Muck review, Opera House gig somewhere off the mainland, Maine, USA
