Show time. Tonight in Dublin. Better get on the tour bus…
In the arena the crowd assembles for…….
The real Bob!
But Jack was there too…
Got to love a post show Mojito!
then, on to another joint. Jack made a few more friends…
… and ended up in a late night diner.
I’ve had so much fun going to the 2 shows at Cork and Dublin. Jack has a new home in Germany with Renaldo & Jane Fate, but I just planned another tour trip, to rendezvous with Jack & Co in Vienna. I think the real Bob is playing too. Yay!
Well today was exciting for Jack. He met a lot of people, as you do in the road. I think he has some new fans, He was signing autographs…
Having his picture taken by random strangers and generally entertaining line on people assembled in a line out side a very large tent….
The real Bob!! Who was very jolly this evening and played an amazing show.
…and still time for an after show pint with the fans!
Sunday 15th June
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…
The beautiful rose gardens…
He found some money on the way…..
A Beautiful waterfall…
It was a lovely relaxing morning day before show ime tomorrow!
More of Jacks adventures in Cork, Ireland
At the Marquee!
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.
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…
Flower on the grey fedora hat..
In the making of mine……
