A slow day in Samville. I kinda planned it that way. Tomorrow will be a busy day as was yesterday, so I have this day in the middle to just chill(and practice of course).
I think one reason for my slow schedule is that it's just slow all over. There were at least three gigs I had on the books that were cancelled, including one this week.
And I can remember this happening back in July of 1986, where I had eight gigs cancel for eight different reasons. At that point, I decided to get a day job. Fast food was the only thing I could get right away, and went from there after 3 months to working in a Bank. From there I worked for 4 and a half years, before getting on with the State.
Kept my State job for 22 years, until I just couldn't take it anymore. Many layoffs and office closings hastened my departure, which was gonna be the following year--and possibly longer than that if they'd have let me work part-time.
Such was my career path as far as my working life. It took a lot out of me, particularly the State job, but I'm glad I hung in there. I'm not a wealthy man by any means, but I've got just enough to make it. I was never materialistic or acquisitive. Enough was the operative word for me..
Well I guess I felt like talking this morning. Hope it was okay reading. Thanks as ever for stopping in, whoever-reads-this. More later.
