Burger and Big Mama at Brownsville Saloon

Not sure what this store was. It was in Brownsville (Oregon), Friday evening, as I was heading north from Eugene. Had a great hamburger and dark oat stout at the Brownsville Saloon Bar & Grill and intense conversation with another music lover at the bar; someone was playing really good songs on the juke box, including Hound Dog by Big Mama Willie Mae Thornton.

I’m back home, trying to unscramble photos and notes. Taking off tomorrow to do an appearance at Bookshop Santa Cruz Tuesday night.

I’ve got about a dozen barns, which I’ll post when I get time…

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
