The humble Farmer
Burgie Howard gets the highest marks possible for assembling 400 or so friends to hear my stories. You were an excellent audience, the largest audience that has ever paid to be seated under one roof for the sole purpose of hearing The humble Farmer, and I really enjoyed talking with you. Thank you for making my first show at Bowdoin an enjoyable and unforgettable one. And do thank Burgie for daring to bring me to Bowdoin. I hope to meet you again soon.
Your help with correcting the errors and omissions on this page would be appreciated
This is humble's second adventure with his Casio LCD Digital Camera QV-300, so be kind.
Many of the inside pictures you posed for didn't come out at all.
The Casio LCD Digital Camera QV-300 doesn't have a flash and even when there is plent of light it only takes half decent pictures.

Hannah Dean, top notch Staff Writer for The Bowdoin Orient, saw humble's show and wrote:
"...this man ... proved just the ticket to put a few homespun stitches in the side.
In short, he was irresistibly funny."
"His dry wit remained dry despite tears of laughter from the audience and his timing never faltered. Perhaps the most touching aspect of the evening was the fact that this prince of wit enjoyed hearing the audience laugh just as much as the audience enjoyed his anecdotes."
Wow! What a wonderful thing for Hannah to say. She ended with
"His home is in St. George, Maine where he encourages anyone passing through to drop in for a cookie."
Thank you for that, Hannah.

The band for the evening is The Consultants of Swing.
A subset of the Consultants (Steve Muise, Glen Loper, & Fred White) comprise one of Maine absolutely hottest (from a review, not my words) contradance bands.
The dances, when they were not swing dances were CONTRAdances, not squares."

humble told them to look up into the light because his camera wouldn't take a decent picture head on.
Please remember, this is the second time humble has tried to use his digital camera.
These are the only pictures that could be salvaged.
Can you imagine what the ones he threw away looked like?
Thank you for looking at the pictures.
And thank you for the wonderful welcome you gave humble at Bowdoin.
