old and tired on friday
Still with the heat wave. July and August are good for those. Two gigs this week, on Tuesday and Thursday, both groups I'd never played with. Tuesday was at the Curve Inn with Lady Carole and her Knights and Thursday was at Jazz Up Front in Bloomington with Organation.
Not much fun making the drive with no A/C in 95 degree weather, but got it done. I'm one of those retirees who probably stays home more than is good for him, so occasionally I push myself to get my ass out of the house, and out of town. And I'm usually glad I did.
During my working years, I grew to prefer doing gigs on weekdays(though not too damn late!)or Friday happy hour, which left the weekend free to chillax before dealing with another 5 days of work. Now that I'm retired, though, I'd just as soon keep them on the weekends, which leaves my week free. I like to get a couple exercise sessions in every week(cardio and weights). Having gigs on Tuesday and Thursday kinda chopped up my week, so no exercise was achieved.
Draggin' ass today, due to not much sleep last night. I should be back on the track before too long. Thanks for reading, whoever you are. More later. Hopefully some actual music.
