GUILFORD COLLEGE, DANA AUDITORIUM, GREENSBORO, NC

Before the show we happened to run into Arlo. He looked great. He had on a Hawaiian shirt & jeans. I showed Dennis & some kid with long hair who was a student there & helped out with the sound, my laptop. Everyone was so nice to us. A photographer from the Greensboro, NC paper was there & took some photos of Arlo & of us & was intrigued by using being friends with him & having come all the way from VA. He's gonna do an editorial in the Greensboro, NC paper on Arlo & us. Next yr. when Arlo comes back to Greensboro, NC with eh Symphony they want to use PICS of Arlo & us to advertise the gig. LOL! We're walking Arlo billboards.

We met the dude who helped put on the show & we'd bought the tickets from him over the phone. He was real nice & a long hair too!
Jackie, Abe, Cathy & Dennis were there. Sarah wasn't there due to still being in Hawaii for her honeymoon. Arlo said he'd love to be there. Jessica wasn't there cuz she had to visit a friend. So Jackie & Cathy sold the stuff for Arlo. Out of all the Arlo gigs we've been to this is the 2nd one that she's been to. The other one we went to that she was at was the WOODY STAMP SHOW in DC. We'd met her there so we got to meet her again & see Cathy & Abe again. The grandkids didn't come nor Annie or Abes wife Lisa cuz the kids are in school now. Someone had to take care of them.

This was a Quaker college. I didn't see anyone that looked like the Quaker Oats man. LOL! The Guy who out on the gig talked about how the Quakers don't vote. They come to an agreement & if one person disagrees then. No deal.

Show Fashion report: He wore a black suit, black dressy shirt & black dress shoes & red socks! Yup! That was him & not an Arlo Clone. I told him last week he was an Arlo Clone but this week he was the real Arlo cuz he wore red socks! He looked nice. Abe was with him on keyboards backing him up.
