Field Report: Del Rio, Leesburg VA 2006/03/11

Brian McClure hosted, Pauline Ball guested, I featured and Jesse Joyce headlined. I talked to Jesse outside during Brian and Pauline's act because there was nowhere discreet to stand in the room.

I didn't hear a word of Jesse's act because I did a bit about the Unclaimed Baggage Center in my act and two guys from Mississippi and Tennessee buttonholed me after I got off stage and told me where they were from and I made the mistake of telling them I have family where they're from, so we spent 55 minutes comparing geneaologies.

Fortunately, Jesse gave me a cd which I'll enjoy later. He's friends with Mark Lundholm and Kevin Downey jr., two comics I admire fondly.

Jesse and I hit the IHOP. Smart guy. It's rare for me to meet someone who has more stories to share than I do.

You southerner, you. :-p

interactivearts sez that he's not related to Confederate General Gordon: "He's from the Georgia Gordons." Whatever -- his photos look a lot like interactivearts. Is there a lot of that in your family?

basilwhite: I'm from the Memphis Whites.

The phrase "I'm from the Memphis Whites" has a connotation that I find uncomfortable. An unearned connotation, since my Civil War relatives snuck through Arkansas to Ohio to fight for the Union with kids from Cleveland.
