Cafe Vaquera, February 16th, 2010...

Here's the Cold Stream outta water.
She is Dave Densmore's 54' west coast combo commercial fishing boat.
We are all gearing up for Fisher Poets Gathering here in Astoria from February 25-28.
The Cold Stream is getting some new wood on the bow and some new paint. Lucky her, huh?
I might just get a haircut and reprint my essays in larger type.
I perform at the Wet Dog at 7PM on Saturday evening.
