Fl!p’s mom, Maryann Breskin, was born and raised in Ustick, just north of Boise. Mom’s heart connection with the apple ranch and vinegar factory were so clear that in the last years of her very long life she sat down with a piece of graph paper and drew a map of the ranch from memory. We were able to locate the original farmhouse from her map overlaid on Google Earth. She was accurate within a foot on the whole place. We’re bringing a few of her ashes back to her first home. It seems right to bring some songs of home and family as well as our usual goofiness.
Susan Elliot has offered to host a house concert for us Sunday May 19 when we come. We’ll start with a potluck BBQ, and proceed with music. We’ll finish by about 5 PM. We may also find a way to do a workshop on Ergonomics For Musicians, one of Fl!p’s passions.
