I wanted to leave Tucson by noon, but didn't get to roll out of town till 4. I did however get it all done. That feels good. And the act I scouted last night to come down to Bisbee was a winner. I'll venture out into town tomorrow to ask the preferred venue if they are interested and hopefully it goes forward.
Things to look forward to. That's better than nothing!
It's chilly down here but I am home for a few days and I have some ideas. Look out!
Home is where you put on "Blades of Glory" and roast up a sweet potato !
I gotta say, this is something to look forward to... the excitement of the scramble to make something happen with virtually nothing. I am fairly good at this. And dammit, I need stuff to do. So here we go!
I am in talks to get this money so I can do this deal. I need to do this deal. It's a screaming good deal on a 4 Runner. I told the dude I'd do this deal, and I will one way or another. I may need a few extra dollars to make this happen... so this means I better get working on something. Here is my new challenge to make some cash fast. Let's see how I do...
The flight. That's what I'm catching. Back to Tiny Town and find out if I am gonna actually get on the schedule or not for work at the wee co-op. I am kinda back thru the end of the year with one small 4 day trip planned mid Dec. I hope they schedule me, but most folks are in making money for xmas mode so I won't be shocked if there is nothing for me... or if they just hired to fill in the gaps I was working in. Go with the flow, put out the word, do what I can, but most of all, make it fantastic. Those are my mantras. Lunching with The Mother Unit before scooting back to Bisbee.. I feel a salad from Goodness in my future. And all my flights were on time and easy. Delta rocks.
Two beings I care for deeply. United in one picture. My pal Susan Werner and my toothless cat, Marvin. Just before she hit the stage for her 2 show stint at Harris Creek Acoustic.
So good to see her and Jane. Been a damn long time since we were in the same place. Susan absolutely killed it for the shows... ( of fucking course she did!) and Jane was spot on fantastic taking care of everything a tour manager should.
Some excellence in motion with those two. Good to catch up a bit, and so good to do that all here in VA where my community of friends gathers for all the right reasons to make this world a better place. I saw every one of my good friends here, and got moments with all of them.
The days prior were filled with getting the house and menu ready for the big night, and I was put to good use. And yet I still managed to get lots of time with my cat on my lap, A great trip east for sure.
I get to hang with my friend Anson and have coffee and talk about life.
We all need friends we can do that with. And he and I have only known each other a couple of years, but I have to say he feels like a genuine close friend. I can't say that about too many guys in my life. I have met some extraordinary guys but true friendship... the kind that is authentically reciprocated is a little more rare.
I get really great moments with this guy. Such a treat! And my time with Andy is always a definite heart-filled-with-joy thing. And it's nice to see them working together to put out a quality product. I have a good feeling about this next year for these guys. And of course, I hope I get to tag along whenever I can (whenever they'll have me..) but more than anything it's gotta feel good to be happy about the product you are putting out and having folks outside the circle tell you it's a good thing ya got going.
