Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?


What a day. Lizzie, Jared, WSPA-3 and I went to the Ren Faire in the Amanas early in the day. Spent many hours out in the hot sun.

Came back to Ames and headed straight out to the pool, where I swam 200 meters, much to my amazement. So that is both of the first two days of the season we have made it to the pool. Weather permitting we will make it there tomorrow as well.

Came back home and grilled. After that was all finished and Lizzie sent off to bed (she has to work tomorrow, hey it's double time) I left the kids to watch TV and headed to The Space to play a few songs. Nate (Ames promoter at large and the center of the music scene here nowadays) and Will (one of the Sunday Boys at Boheme from years back) asked for specific songs.

Honestly I had no idea if I could play them. I started with Crank Generation ... yeah ... Crank Generation. I made it through. The only pain was due to lack of practice. My wrists were just fine. Then Nate asked for Bang My Bald Spot, and Will asked for WYSIWYG. Nate, thank you. I needed this. I didn't know if I could play like that anymore. The answer is I can, not for as long at the moment, but I can. So a quick, intense 3 song set that ran only about 20 minutes. Yeah. I digressed very little ... for me. It felt so good.

Now off for a quick shower and then to bed.
