                                                                              "Baking bread."


                                                                    And then someone else asked me the same thing and I told him, "Doing
                                                                            my taxes," and he said, "They've extended it until July 15th," and I said,
                                                                            "Rate I'm going, it will take that long."

                                                                                    then load the pieces in the trailer, drive to the woodshed and stack.

                                                          Here is the youtube of the reading I did at Ken Sanders Rare Book Store in
                                                          Salt Lake City on September 28, 2019: "What Happened To That Movie?"

                                                                           SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2019

 Had a great reading at Ken Sander’s bookstore in Salt Lake City. The staff was tremendous, a
good turnout and they dug the show. In one part of piece I was reading I told about the time
Kesey had his house broken into and his dad's cuff links stolen. Another guy told Kesey where the
thief lived so Kesey and I went to his place, a real tweaker mess, broken down trailer, junk in the
yards. Kesey tried the door, went in, came out with the cuff links. A rasty old woman from across
the street came over yelling, "What are you doing, you can't just go barging in there, who are you anyway?
"Mormons," Kesey said, brushing past her. "Do you want to buy a Watchtower?"
The audience cracked up, biggest laugh I've ever gotten. Only in Salt Lake City.
