Carmel Heritage Society message
- I received a message back stating that the Carmel Heritage Society would
bring up the issue of our proposed Asilomar Conference at the next Board
meeting in June. The Vice President of the Society was very complimentary of
the Blanding exhibit (again) and was also very supportive of any other
efforts on our behalf. They would provide coverage of the conference in
their quarterly newsletter on our behalf and assist in any other way that
they could other than monetary. I had emailed them some time ago regarding
helping with a proposed conference. I am encouraged that we would receive
extra support and coverage at no expense to us. I have also maintained
contact with a local Carmel newspaper reporter who would also be supportive
of our efforts and I believe the Monterey paper would do the same as they did
with the Carmel exhibit.
So, lets get going on this!..................tj
- Well, I'll be in Sarasota till April 15th, but imagine if the conference
could be set up for after I get to Oregon, or on the way, that I'd sure like
to be there. Did any of you go look at that old pick up truck photo, a few
weeks ago on eBay. It was of a '52 or '53 Chevy with a homemade camper on the
back, rowboat on top, and painted on the side were the large CAPS "Vagabond's
House" Well, I'll be driving today's version of the same thing and talking my
time following Springtime across the West to Eugene. That's gonna be a
Oh, and I bought that photo, if anyone would like a copy through the ethers.
Happy to share....... The dream.
I think that's what I enjoy most about DB's work, the feeling that I'm
living it through his minds eye. He knew how to share his insight
beautifully, most all of the time.

- I have jokingly said to my wife that I was going to paint "tj's Vagabond
House - Blanding researcher/collector", on our RV as we travel about. She
wasn't as serious as I was though! Just can't understand that (smile).
Enjoy your trip across the country and I wouldn't expect the conference to
occur until next year, unless we gear up much faster than expected.........tj
