Hi Love,

2020 has arrived and I'm still rattling around the ranch.

The end of last year has been a very wet one. We needed the rain so, while inconvenient, it was welcome.

Sadly, Joy Neff passed away. She has been a constant reminder of Garrett yesterdays. Each Christmas season twelve jars of jam and two dozen English muffins appeared, sent by her and now is continued by Judy, her sister. Time never diminished her affection for The Garrett and those who 'lived' there.

The Donut Express is still going strong at the Ventura Fair and people still ask about you.

There was a fire in October which, luckily, only caught half of the bull pen (at the back of the property). We were lucky. No humans or animals were hurt. We got them all out very quickly while the fire raged. Candidly, wondering if we would have a place to return to. Thank goodness for the quick work of the fire department, damage was minimal.

Last year was a year of reflection. I suspect father time is catching up with me.
However, as always, I forge forward.

Sleep warm, my friend.

Love ya,
Stacey

I've been a fan of Terrea Lea since the early '70's, and I still listen to her records (I have them all) regularly. Her deep, resonant voice, her guitar, and her choice of material help define the soul of folk music. Her music and her life were important contributions, and I still regret that I never saw her live or met her. What's not mentioned often, but that comes through in listening to her music, is that she cared deeply about social and political issues in our society, and spoke out about them. It's hard to find her music now: most is only available on rare copies of the LP's. They are worth the search.

Hi Miss Lea,

Yes I'm late this year with my look back on the year 2018.

Good news! Mostly old friends are still active. Joy Neff has moved to Wisconsin with her sister and is experiencing health problems. The rest of us are pottering around.

Mary Lou has redone your home. I understand it looks wonderful and being enjoyed to the fullest.

With me, I'm questioning ranch life - the verdict is out at this moment.

The Donut Express remains active and successful.

We love and miss you.

When I was a boy of 10 or 11 my Mom took me to see Terrea. I've always recalled it as a Venice coffeehouse but it may have been The Garrett. It was a VERY intimate venue. I had been playing guitar for some years, so naturally "The Wind..." became my immediate favorite. :) Her natural comfort onstage inspired me to nearly 30 years of solo stage singing myself, performing all over New England from the late 60's onward. Thank you, Terrea.
