Picture pages, picture pages, having fun with picture
The following are a sample of my extensive collection
of photographs from Jonathan Frid's shows, other DS autographs, and a new
interest: Melanie Safka Schekeryk, folk singer of the Woodstock era.

The autographs I got from Melanie and son Beau at The Turning Point, Piermont, NY, in
June 2001. The poster is a 30-year old souvenir from her album "Stoneground Words"

The Turning Point--- MOI, with the still-effervescent-at-55 Melanie and her youngest child, guitar prodigy,
budding singer-songwriter(and pleasant to talk to as well as to look at) Beau-Jarrod Schekeryk. I am holding
Melanie's guitar. (Hubby-Dad-Manager Peter S. was supervising in the background somewhere.)
Melanie in a
slightly witchier (wicca-er?)-styled version of her great wardrobe of peasant-style caftans (and her
large silver locket full of crystals!), waving what looks like a wand (I forgot what it is, I think it's an instrument)
bantering with Beau between songs (it seems he's ALWAYS having to help her change guitars, at least twice per show!)
Melanie and Beau doing what
they do best.
