Peter Yarrow At Linden Tree

Monday: (11/14) Leftovers for breakfast. Corned beef hash for me, Shepard's pie for Lou. I spent the morning working on the computer and the afternoon washing the RV. Tomato soup for lunch. Lou and Dawn were out shopping, actually returning things after lunch. Lou was coming down with a cold in the evening. Dinner was Lou's chili beans with my cheese toast.

Dawn and Don With Peter Yarrow At Linden Tree Book Store Los Altos
In the evening Dawn and I went over to Los Altos to the Linden Tree Book Store to see Peter Yarrow  (of Peter, Paul and Mary fame)  He was doing a book signing for his book Puff The Magic Dragon and his other song books. Of course most of the audience was little children and then their parents and some older folk like me. He sang several of his songs interspersed with other activities that kept the younger audience's attention. He even sang a special song. The song was called Linden Tree, based on his song Lemon Tree but adapted for the book store's name. He entertained the group for an hour and then signed his books or other items. It's nice to see a famous person provide autographs without even having to buy something. The only thing he said he wouldn't sign was skin. The store ended up staying open nearly an hour after closing time so everyone got their autographs. He didn't rush people chatting extensively with each person.
