On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions.
From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
I should have normal computer access for Thursday and Friday’s posts.
Until then –
That’s OK, Doc in the morning is a good substitute.

I’ll be honest and say that I didn’t know that he played in a group, let alone that well. I’d seen him pick a few times over the years but this was pretty awesome. He’s also still funny as hell.
Here is five year old me with Merle Watson, 1976:
Anyone watching Ken Burns’s latest epic? I liked the first two episodes because I knew very little about the origins of country music and the Carters, but I’ve lost interest since then.
@debbie: watching it. Episode three came on last night, episode four tonight, and that’s it. Just four. I like it from a history perspective, but like so much about American music a large portion of its origin is owed to POC, which this doc basically glosses over. It also shows why this is distinctively white people music. Male and white.
Nothing like Doc and Merle in the morning. There are not enough pics of Merle floating around. I’m like Ken Burns’ show very much indeed, tho’ there are inevitable gaps, Rhiannon Giddens doing yeoman service to make up for them . Around here, pbs stations ran the American Masters show about Charley Pride as well as the live concert on repeat.
@Omnes Omnibus: Less quantity of pictures! ?
