I feel like a damn teenager. In bed at 1:45, up just after 11.(My Dad used to joke that I would sleep until the crack of dusk). I don't recall much if any tossing and turning, so that was 9 hours of sleep. Feeling nice and relaxed, but decadent..
A fun one-hour gig yesterday, at Cedarhurst Nursing Home in Jacksonville. Guitar, bass and saxes/flute. We've done this one three times now, and it's always a mellow time. Just playing old tunes for the oldsters. Makes them happy, and that feels great.
Two more gigs on the books for August. Next up is the State Fair on August 12(see the Gigs page if interested). Pat Metheny's birthday. Mine is two days before his, same year even.
My birthday is shared by Rosanna Arquette, Antonio Banderas, Jimmy Dean, Eddie Fisher, Claude Thornhill, and Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson. There are more, but I'm still waking up. The world is still coming into focus. Literally..
Some playing last night, and a couple things taped. Might have something new for the YouTube page. Time will tell. Hopefully this will be a good guitar day as well.
And that's my news for this beautiful Saturday. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Saturday to you. Ich bin outa here. More later.
