About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day 226: Depauville Hotel

The Depauville Hotel in Depauville, NY. It is situated six miles from my home in Chaumont which is also half way to the St. Lawrence riverside community of Clayton. Thursday nights the Bartender is one Gino Cappuccetti, a young musician. Members of his jazz band Queen August set up there on those evenings and host an informal open mic event. And I mean informal. If you are in the area, drop in and jump in to play or sing with the band and any number of others who might be there. It is North Country at it's finest.
