PF and MsM........here's some Hoyt Axton personal trivia.

Many many moons ago when I was in college I was part owner of a "Coffee House". A bunch of us kids pooled our money and purchased an old broken down house on Main St. We all worked our young butts off turning it into a really cool weekend night spot serving various coffee concoctions (we were long before Starbucks). We also served hand crafted sandwiches and sweets. One of us, (don't remember who) hired this unknown entertainer one weekend. This guy packed the place he was so good. I'll never forget him sitting on that stool with his guitar, and belting out his yet unrecorded song "Green Back Dollar". Yep, I knew Hoyt Axton, before he was Hoyt Axton.

That is so cool! He was a very kind man, I know that if I had asked him for an autograph for Mom he would have given it to me, but I didn't want him to feel uncomfortable around us. It was sad watching him walk into a restaurant for lunch and everyone crowding around him, the poor man couldn't eat in peace. When he would sneak in the back and we were there, we'd make room for him and others wouldn't notice him. I twas great to sit and have a meal, talking about everything.

This all sounds yum, even though it was only a few days ago I could eat it all again. We had parma ham wrapped in mozzerella to start followed by roast turkey, roast potatoes, roast carrots & parsnips, sprouts, cabbage and peas. Followed by Christmas pudding and brandy custard.

Here's another thumbs up for Alix's lemon cake recipe - it was our dessert - moist and good, not too sweet. Thanks, Alix.

I don't know how I missed the whole Hoyt Axton conversation, but wow, I always loved him!!! Nice to see he was as genuine as he seemed to be.

You would have loved him, it was a sad day when he died. The entire town was in mourning. He was real folk, no star about him, unless it was pushed on him. Nothing like hanging out, sipping soda and shooting the breeze with him at 2 in the morning. Happened a few times when I worked in the convenience store.
