Pads – fail

Posted on Friday, September 10th, 2021 at 7:35 pm

My pads only lasted about 30 minutes of actual playing last night. And I wasn’t in particularly good form. But the company was good. And I brought home brisket, as they had run out of chili. And my body has been off pace since, tired, sore, comatose. I still haven’t unpacked the toy bag.


I played more percussion that anything else, rotating through the items, wood block, tamarind bones, spoons (cheaters), clapper, cabasa, cat guiro.


With brisket on the heels of the pulled pork, I needed bread, as well as produce, so I made a store run this morning. I’m now set for the weekend.


It is starting to cool a little. Dew point in the 50s. Winds out of the north and east. Moving the Gulf air out allows for cooler nights. Tonight is forecast for 63°F at the airport. About the same for in town. The office may get to be opened.


Charged both batteries on the truck. Voltage has dropped. Getting to be time to make the alternator swap. Brakes seem to be holding.


I get to sit the horde this weekend.




The office window opened at 11:15 pm CDT, first time since May. The AC is off, silent.
