The joyful day!

That book meme

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence. [I took a lead-in partial sentence to be #1]
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

I received a cryptic telegram in Aurora, Illinois:

A winky button to whoever can tell me what this is from.

I figger there are at least three of you who have a very good chance.
The joyful day!

A whole lot of music this weekend

I have been playing the mandolin with the squirrel every day. Things are moving along nicely.

I went the open jam today. I had a hard time since I was near the sound system they use so we can all hear the vocalists. I need to move to the other side of the circle the next time. I only led on one song. Only Coffee House In Town. I actually got everyone playing along. Other than that I just played guitar when my ears weren't screaming.

At Boheme, it was a ok set. I pushed myself a little too hard.

Only Coffee House In Town - It seems to be the usual opener now.
Standards - great version, nice and relaxed
Nice Guys - Ok, if a little unfocused
How Can I Miss You? - my working on low key stuff lately showed, it was a bit of a mess, but not as much of a mess as
Crank Generation - where I fell apart totally, much to the delight of the sunday boys ... it was fun ...

So it was a good night, and a pretty good weekend.

I'm tired now ... night
