Jammin’

Posted on Friday, February 7th, 2020 at 9:46 am

The second jam session at Pioneer was the opposite of the first. I had a rough count of 17 musicians, and I knew seven of them. Lynn McDaniels was there, I haven’t seen her in years. It was hard to find a spot in the circle and hard to find a spot on the floor for guitar cases. There was no end to the talent. It was quite a spectacle.


I only performed six leads, which I welcomed. I got several rounds of ovations from the full house. I even had the manager tap me on the shoulder and tell me how much she enjoyed my playing.


Afterwards, eight of us continued the playing next door. It ended up being quite a night. I was ready for it to end. I burned a lot of energy, and it took several hours to wind down.


I skipped out on the ophthalmologist appointment on Tuesday. I just wasn’t up to driving to College Station and back with dilated eyes. And my vision has been constant. So the cancelation was not something that I regretted. It gave me a chance to relax. But I still need to get a blood test and see the nurse next week.


I have the weekend off. I’m looking forward to it. Sunday should be warm enough to open the windows.
