Last winter, when I was getting set to tour in the U.K. once again, I got an e-mail from Emma. Emma has made a few comments on my blog and on others, and we'd struck up a friendship when I had some specific questions about her part of England.
When I did a show near Reading, England, Emma drove for at least an hour by herself to come and see me perform. My wife and I visited with her for a short while after the show, but it's never long enough, is it? I do remember somewhere along the line telling her she should write a blog ...
And here it is. Now, remember when you were taking your first tentative steps into the world o' blogging and you wondered if anybody would ever come and read what you had to say? Well, I bet that's how Emma feels about now. So let's go show her some love and encouragement, shall we ...? She's smart and funny and writes with a lovely English accent.
And bonus - she can probably tell you exactly what Spotted Dick is, and how to avoid it.
