Other Jack-related developments. Last week I went to Amsterdam for a Blythe doll show and stayed with some lovely friends Mark & Marcella…

The lovely Marcella at Oh My Lucky Stars Design made a very special custom necklace featuring our favorite Mr Fate.

It’s a very special unique, one off present for Jane F.    :)

On the Road Part 2, Germany


The next show was in Munich..It was a but of a drive from the strange gold hotel we stayed in in Vienna after Klam. Mainly we slept there and watched Germany with the World cup game. I have to confess I fell asleep and missed the end!
I’m not a huge football fan.. so I mainly blew bubbles!

On the road again on the way to Germany we stopped for a break but a lake, had an ice cream and watched the ducks.

Bubbles….

The site was being set up for a festival so we had a wander around and found Rolling Thunder Yellow Indian scarves. The show in Munich was fun and special because of the inclusion of Working Mans Blues 2! We had a good spot at the front and there were many great moments.  It was the best show yet.

Then it was time for me to leave the tour. It was sad to leave and make my way back to the hotel in a sleazy part of Munich. the next day I visited an art gallery them headed to the airport in the rain….

 

I have had a few reports from the field in the last day or so. Jack and the tour bus.

There seemed to be a little mischief in the air….. planning a night on the town in Hamburg. I think Jack wanted to head to the red light district ang get into some trouble…..

Woops. He did! Jack ended up back in Jain for drinking and gambling.

On the Road Part 1 Austria


After meeting Jane Fate in the queue, we attended the show in Vienna, which was wonderful. The after a quick trip down the autobahn and a car swap at a petrol station we had a midnight picnic in a field, somewhere in Vienna near this yellow house, which we stayed in.

The next day we drove to Klam castle but we couldn’t go in because it was taken over for the music festival. We had a wander around ans watched the stage being put up and took a few pictures of the boys…

It was still early, around 11.00 am so we headed to the nearest bar in the village. With a very long wait we,  amused ourselves by playing a Dylan song hangman game, that we invented.  Jane Fate was pretty amazing at this. I only managed to get her completely hung once with ‘Wigwam’.

We prepared ourselves for a walk up the hill to join the queue. In case if rain I borrowed Jane Fates hat!

There was a sort of queue but mainly we sat on the side of the road and got bitten by ants and sheltered under a tree in the rain huddled together under a plastic rain mac. The gates arrived so we lined up and waited, then sprint for the rail time. I managed to over take 3 people and get us a good spot. the show was great. We blew bubbles.. some made it to the stage.

The show was fabulous.  I forgot it was raining. After we drove back to the yellow house there was only nuts & Bobby bars to eat, so with 3 bottles of wine it made for quite a drunken evening staying up late and listing to albums and making plan for the rest of the trip….

Jack Fate at Blarney Castle, Sunday

It was a lovely day to visit Blarney Castle. Wonderful and sunny. It it was a quiet morning before all the tourists arrive, so Jack could get around and see the castle and gardens.

He saw the castle…

Jack Fate takes a Walk in Cork.


I made a ‘Jack Fate’ rocker. That’s Bob Dylan in the film Masked and Anonymous.

Well, I’m very pleased with how he came out. Right now he’s following the real Bob on Tour! I arrived in Cork today and caught a glimpse of the real Bob’s tour bus leaving the airport.  After the next couple of shows in Ireland he will be setting down in Germany, except for touring commitments, obviously. We had a little evening walk around he Beautiful City of Cork and stopped for a few pictures.

Bob Dylan Rolling Thunder Revue – Inspiration and sources


I love Bob Dylan!

I really love Bob Dylan and 1975-6 Rolling Thunder Era was, I think the most fun to try a knit, because of the lovely details of the flowers on the hat etc…. so this has been a really fun project.
I wanted to share some pictures I used for research…The whole ensemble…
