Long Hard Night, but Fun None The Less...
Home now from the gig. It was the sort of gig that had ALL the elements in place to be a really fun night, with some really fun people. Dylan was sitting in, Big Johnny came down , with Karrin and a friend. Aleta, Gayle and Amy came down, Amy for the first time to a show...(Amy, so very glad to meet you!!! Please come back!) Paul and I were ready....Here's a photo from Gayles phone..
It's good to dream.
I told my table of Fiends at one point I was going to go home and do a post calling it "My Weird-ass Crowd."
The first set went long, really long, like two hours. Never caught fire, tho it had moments. I love it when Dylan is there, he adds so much. And I love it when friends are there too. Not sure why it didn't work, wasn't the kind of crowd where we do best. Drunken wedding people didn't help.
I tried to keep the good things together, played some great things, and had some fun, but started playing a game I like to call "Cough Up A Lung" about halfway thru that first set, no idea where that came from, but have a bad feeling I am about to become very ill.
We did play some great things, the U2 always melts me, Johnny sat in for a few songs, always wonderful, Bob Seger's Turn the Page rocked my world (No, I have no idea why we sometimes do that) but I am just left with a feeling of, well, I wanted it to be MORE.
Thanks to the Fiends for being there! And to Johnny and Karrin and Friend, you came in and the world went beautiful, sorry I had to take off.
Here's me at the end of the long hard night....
And now for the Leopard Report..
Nothing much has changed, but today I bought him a Mousie I could fill with catnip and a Mousie on the end of a string, with stick. When I got him tonight , both of them, with the string pom pom were ALL in the empty food dish. Is this a good sing? He is gathering his toys I give him?
Love and tierd,
