Greetings, whoever-reads-this! About 9:10 in the pm, starting to wind down for the night. It's been a week since I've written anything in here, so we're overdue.
Music news. I have a gig on Friday, March 31st, at Boone's. Two other people will be joining me on bass and drums. Just got the contracts in the mail today, so this is hot off the presses. We'll be playing some of that jazz music, and I'll have CDs on hand, which I always sell at half-price--still an inflation-busting $5 apiece. Hope to see you there!
Still keeping the YouTube page alive. The videos come from my practice sessions, so it all depends. Sometimes I've got a winner or two, other times it all goes in the cyber-trash. And there are still other days when I don't self-record at all, but just go to work with my brutally honest friend Mr. Metronome. But it's still going, and I even put up a new one here on the homepage.
Domestic/Old Guy News. This is my year for repairs. The front porch got a much-needed facelift, and the roof is getting an even more sorely needed replacement this Spring. I've also gone from one back to two working johns here in the house, Still feels like a luxury.
On the old guy front, my visit to the Dermatologist last week revealed an Atypical Conjunctive something or other, which translates in Layman's terms as an early Melanoma. I go see someone in about four weeks--right here in town-- and arrange to have it removed. Then there are follow-up visits every 6 months for at least awhile into the year. Another old guy rite of passage...
So with this news, things are settling back down. I've been waiting over a week for those medical results, so it's been tough to really get going on anything. Back to the guitar, and more musicmaking.
And that's what I've got in the way of news. Thanks as ever for stopping in and reading. Happy Thursday to you, or whenever you read this! Ich bin outa here. More later.
