The Old Forge (Thursday 17th October 2019)
In the month since I last blipped this year-old Virginia Creeper on the driveway it has taken on its Autumn colouring for the first time. I made a note on Wednesday to take this but the wind and rain overnight meant that it has quite a few leaves less now. Early days, but I hope this and a Boston Ivy planted at the same time will eventually encircle the outbuilding.

During my study of Alternative Self Portrait, I realised that I had never replaced two albums from this period that I used to have on vinyl: New Morning and 1973's hotch-potch of overdubbed out-takes, Dylan. The latter is now very hard to come buy and costly if tracked down, so I let it go, but New Morning is readily and cheaply available on CD, and though most of it was very familiar to me when I played it on arrival on this day, One More Weekend took me by surprise; a rocking twelve-bar blues unlike all the rest of the album, so an obvious choice here.
