Fighting the heat in Nurnberg this past week, I take a day off,..
NOT giving up(!),
mind you.
Just pausing for the big battle,
...the weekend.

Sleeping a bit longer,
drinking a Latta too many,
begging my lady to scratch my back,
...."just one more time.,... Please."
(yes, I begged..)
ahh, blowing off heat, from the past week;
sucking in calm,..
for tomorrow.
That heat, and sun,.. can sweep a street clean.

Reading some of the past happenings, here on 'the Sidewalk',
it was a pleasure passing my eyes over Evbromfi's adventures in New Jersey,
and D. Yoder's Pittsburgh escapades!
For me, these storys smell of Busking,.
fresh air for the Soul!
(someone once told me, "Buskers don't have a Soul. They only have Sole,... two thick ones!)

In Nurnberg last weekend, 'The Barde Treff'.
300(!) groups(!!),with countless amps, cd's, mikrofons, hair extensions, and tatoos,..
fought it out,..
for free(!).
,to the amusement of beer drinking onlookers.
...amazing what folks will do,
for five minutes on a stage.

We played Regensburg.
Still, coming into Nurnberg, Monday, we thought,.
"there'll surely still be some hanger-on-er's,..hanger-over-er's..."
,.."some who REALLY needed the bread, to buy some butter."
Nope.
,the Streets were ours,..
empty.
oK,.. the heat.
,and no free beer,..
not the glamour, the gaukers,.. the 'Festival',..of fugility.
The Streets.
Four Ukrainien Accordian Virtuos, an Oboe Quartet from St. Petersberg, two Balloon-atics from Turkey,
....gypsi beggers.
,we shook hands,
shared spots, stories, water, smiles, Frankish cherries,
and waited for one another to finish.

Leonard Cohen once sang,
"We may be Ugly,.. but we've got the Music"."
,if anybody sees him before I do,
tell him to add one more little line,..
"... and the Magic."
thanks,
gallagher.
