Thinking About All of You Because One of These Days ...

19th Annual International RustFest - October 23, 2015
Saratoga Springs, CA

We recently received a comment from Chris asking us about saying "Thanks Neil".
Hi Thrasher!

I have been thinking about this for a while; You know how life is fragile and that we should not wait before we say to the one we care bout that we love them , so why not write a long open letter to tell Neil to tell him how much we care.

Start it and we will follow .
Thanks Chris, a very nice idea. Actually, everyday here @ TW is sort of a thank you note to Neil Young. But we gave this some more thought and think we can expand on the sentiments.

Rusties on The Holy Rail
Berlin, Germany - June 2, 2013

So, in the meantime, we can't really improve on Neil Young's song "One of These Days".

"One of these days,
I'm gonna sit down and write a long letter
To all the good friends I've known
And I'm gonna try
And thank them all for the good times together.
Though so apart we've grown."

Rusties After The Show

"One of these days,
I'm gonna sit down and write a long letter
To all the good friends I've known
One of these days, one of these days, one of these days,
And it won't be long, it won't be long."

"And I'm gonna thank,
That old country fiddler
And all those rough boys
Who play that rock 'n' roll
I never tried to burn any bridges
Though I know I let some good things go."

"One of these days,
I'm gonna sit down and write a long letter
To all the good friends I've known
One of these days, one of these days, one of these days,
And it won't be long, it won't be long."

"From down in L.A.
All the way to Nashville,
From New York City
To my Canadian prairie home
My friends are scattered
Like leaves from an old maple.
Some are weak, some are strong."

"One of these days,
I'm gonna sit down and write a long letter
To all the good friends I've known
One of these days, one of these days, one of these days,
And it won't be long, it won't be long."

Remembering Rusties 2019: "One of These Days" by HarryO

w/ Bridge Kid Colin

And -- as always -- it's all about the Bridge Kids. Really. The Bridge Kids ... the real, true children of destiny -- the wheat. (when we say "children of the wheat" we make no claims other than that they represent the best of human nature and symbolize that which each of us can only aspire to. The Kids are the teachers, as Eddie says. We are but mere students.)

So many fond memories and dear rustie friends. Someday, we're gonna sit down and write a long letter... It was so great to see everyone over the years at Bridge concerts and hope to see you again down the road ... wherever the road leads...

peace & love,
