YES, INDEEDY, BACK LISTENING TO DAVID BROMBERG, YOU HAVE TO LOVE DAVID, FIRST SAW HIM WITH HIS REALLY, REALLY BIGGER BAND IN JERSEY IN 1974 WITH A GIRL I WAS WITH STAYING ON A FARM IN FARMINGDALE WITH, A MORMAN GIRL BELIEVE IT OR NOT, REMEMBER DAVID HAD A 8 PIECE BAND, ALL MULTI INSTRUMENTALISTS, AND DAVID ALWAYS PUTS ON A GOOD LATE SHOW AND THIS WAS A SMALL BAR IN THE MIDDLE OF JERSEY, WHERE THE SOUND WAS INCREDIBLE. A GOOD NIGHT WAS HAD BY ALL!

REMEMBER DRIVING FROM THE FARM MY FOLKS & LITTLE SISTER WERE LIVING ON IN ASBURY JUST SOUTH OF THE ICE CREAM STAND ON ROUTE 9. DROVE THRU FARMINGDALE, SAW A GUY RIDING A HORSE BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, HE STOPPED SAME TIME I STOPPED AT A STOP LIGHT, OUR EYES MET AND A NOD OF OUR HEADS I WAS ON MY WAY BUT SOMETHING TOLD ME I WAS TO MEET THAT MAN AGAIN. WELL WENT HOME TO THE FARM I LIVED ON OUTSIDE OF FARMINGDALE. THAT EVENING MY LADY SAID WE WERE GOING OVER TO DINNER AND DRINKS AT THE FARM OWNERS THAT NITE, WELL WALKED IN AND SWEAR THERE WAS THE MAN I SAW ON HORSEBACK THAT AFTERNOON SITTING THERE.

WELL TURNS OUT HE HAD RODE HIS HORSE ALL THE WAY FROM CALIFORNIA TO JERSEY AND STOPPED AT OUR FARM OF ALL PLACES TO ASK FOR LODGING FOR HIMSELF AND HIS HORSE FOR A DAY OR SO BEFORE HE PUSHED ON TO THE JERSEY SHORE, HIS DESTINATION FROM CALIFORNIA! STRANGE EVENING FOR SURE TALKING FOR I’D DONE SOMETHING SIMILAR LIKE RIDING FROM JERSEY ALL THE WAY TO SARATOGA, N.Y. AND BACK A DIFFERENT ROUTE EACH WAY MADE THE TRIPS EVEN MORE ENJOYABLE, WITH MANY OFFERING A STAY FOR ME & ED, MY HORSE, YES I HAD A HORSE NAMED ED BUT I NEVER ONCE CALLED HIM MR. ONCE!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL, MAY CHRISTMAS BE MERRY AND THE NEW YEAR BLESS US ALL!
