And we've got another knockout of a day on our hands. Might be a bit nippier than it could be, but we're still in the "goes in like a Lion" part of March. Still waiting for the lamb to emerge out the other side.
A great night's sleep. One trip to the bathroom and the next thing I knew it was morning. A whole host of dreams I barely remember- except that they might have been influenced just a bit by a documentary series I've been watching on Netflix about the beleaguered city of Flint Michigan.
The birthplace of General Motors in the 50's and 60's, Flint used to be a thriving community. A nice place to live, and a great place to raise a family. What with the plant closings and the water crisis(where their water supply was changed from Lake Huron to the Flint River), they've taken their share and then some of knocks. It's now a dangerous place to live.
So I think that somehow insinuated itself into my dreaming life.
In other, more musical news, I have my beautiful archtop guitar back in my grubby little hands. It's more guitar to reach around than I'm now used to(having spent a lot of time with my "skinny Minnie" axes), but you can't beat the tone.
My Gretsch guitar is being re-strung and repaired. I should get it back today sometime. It is also a very nice instrument, and has a good sound- but not the fullness of the archtop.
Not sure what's on for today, if anything. A gig tomorrow, from 1 to 4. I should say, two sets between 1 and 4. Should be a nice time. And I do have a gig of my own to put up on the page, which is May 18th. Still need to hire a drummer.
This is one of my favorite parts of the day, waking up with a cup of Morning Joe and writing this here newsentry. Especially after a good night's sleep.
I guess that's all I've got for now. YouTube will probably get a new entry or two. Time for that second cup of coffee. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Saturday to you! More later.
