This is a grain elevator in Dannebrogh, Nebraska, where I traveled to talk with folklorist — and humorist — Roger Welch. We shared a pizza and a mug of root beer while we talked about stories, jokes and Dick Cavett.
|Why August 21?|
My daughter, Kepler, started hiking the Appalachian Trail in mid-March. At the tender age of 14, she hopes to be the youngest person to solo-through hike the famous trail, all 2,100 miles of it from Georgia to Maine.

I guess it's 2,100 miles from Maine to Georgia, too, but I digress.
Hiking that far takes a lot of support and the rest of my family has been supporting Keppy's hike by supplying her with food and an occasional nice place to sleep.
I will be joining the rest of my family for the summer, returning to Nebraska in mid-August. At that time I plan on creating a podcast of “A Jarful of Stories” available over the internet. I'll post more information about it when I figure out what I'm doing, ok?
