East

Posted on Sunday, May 28th, 2017 at 4:54 pm

Went through Wahine/Sister Jane rehearsals on Thursday night for Saturday night at the Good Luck Grill, which was a joy.  In between on Friday, I discovered a frozen bolt (now a stripped head frozen bolt) on the alternator (model 7744), so it hasn’t been replaced.  Was a Mac security expert today.

.

I’ll be in Brenham tonight and in Bryan tomorrow morning.  I have been rolling…

.

Been very warm last couple of days, a tropical bulge ahead of a norther w/ rain.  The front is moving in, not too many miles off.

5 years

Five years ago today, they cut me loose from the hospital after surgery.  Some anniversary…

.

In Austin for a few days, at least until the show on Saturday night at the Good Luck Grill (Sister Jane and Nani Wahine).  My body is tired from the party (which was fun) and bouncing around since.  Got in a lot of much needed rest this afternoon.

.

It’s been very bouncy for the last couple of weeks.  Here for a couple of days, then elsewhere.  I need to stabilize.

Post-party

The party was enjoyable.  Lots of music, plenty of food, all went quite well.  I played until my pads blistered, though my voice persisted.  I got to play and sing with a lot of friends.  Cooked a couple of pork loins (kept half of one), mesquite marinaded, mesquite sauced.

.

Running an errand for Franci before I head back, as she needs to be in three places at once today.

.

Rain all over the area, but it looks like it will be clearing out today.

Transition

Sitting in Austin, waiting for the party in Elgin this evening.  Marinated pork loins are my contribution.  Not sure if it will rain tomorrow as the forecast predicts.  But I’m ready to play music.

.

Health issues seems to be the main news in the last week, and none of it particularly good.  Fortunately, I’m doing pretty well, all told.  I lost some weight being in Elgin.  I’m just tired and sore from all the baggage toting.

.

I look forward to being back home next week.  I need the rest.

departure

I’m finally departing Elgin.  This PM I’m finishing packing and loading the truck.  Tomorrow morning I’m heading east to drop off Myka and a bunch of stuff, then head to Austin, then back to Elgin for the party, then back to Brenham again next Sunday or Monday.

.

I get to sit still for about three weeks while I take care of a list of things that have been waiting for me to get back.  There is also a jury duty appearance in early June.

.

After that, I have a housesitting appearance in Elgin and Austin that stretches into July.  After that is unknown and too far in the future to speculate.

.

The last month here has been eventful.  Parties, a new mixer board, and a bunch of other things too numerous to mention.  The food has been good, Myka has been happy, I have been comfortable, the stay profitable for my wallet.  But it’s time to move on.  I have things to do elsewhere.

.

I am looking forward to spending some down time in my La-Z-Boy.
