My brothers used to pour water down the gopher holes and one of them would wait at the other end of the hole with a baseball bat for them to come out.
There were older kids who used to teach us how to make these.
This is the house ( thank you Eurythmics) that we grew up in, that my father built.
That was their “stand” where they sold fresh apples from tables set up there back in the day...
This is the Sweetshop where we used to have ice cream and Green Rivers as kids.
These are some of my favorite books dealing with language.

These are my initial scribblings for The Only Baby. I'm finally remembering to write things down as I go along because usually, when it comes time to work with a band for the live show, I have to relearn how to play all the songs because I didn't write it down and can't remember. Hope you can read what I wrote if you want to.
Lots of love and hopefully see you soon - John
