I gotta say it was a good day..

Yesterday.  Yesterday was a good day.  SATURDAY, SATURDAY, SATURDAY!!  Looking back it really seems like two days rolled into one.  Very slow start, missed breakfast and had to settle on a greasy cafeteria lunch.  Business picked up, however, around 1pm when I and my cohorts began a short trek south by automobile to see my faves Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.  Ya.  It was awesome.  That's really all I have to say about was awesome.  This was a tiny-ass venue, smaller than a little league field.  Great stone vibe though and excellent natural acoustics (and the fact we walked down front and were about three feet from the front of the big deal..) provided for one hell of an afternoon.  The music came into my ears and went down into my feets and I cut some serious rug.  Some jerk event staffer tried to ruin my good time during "Sweet Hands" by asking for proper credentials (I don't have a problem with people doing their jobs, but you don't have to be a jerk about it..) so I had to take a 10 second break in back before I made a triumphant return to the front row to smiles and high fives from all around who saw the aforementioned unfortunate situation go down.  Me: 1.  Event Staffer: 0.  Game, Set, Match.

After a serious intermission (and some serious enchiladas.  I was skeptical about the whole "I got after it this afternoon, I'm getting after it tonight, so for dinner in the middle let's have...enchiladas" but they tasted so good that I stopped looking to the future and got back to living in the present.  L.I.V.I.N'.   And things worked out swimmingly as I feel tremendous today.  I must rustle me up a ton of grub (I'm starving!) before I head north and back to real life.  I guess all things must come to an end at one point or another.  Ho Hum.  I promise some great shots of GP&theN's but obviously I didn't bring my own camera so I'll have to get shots from other folks before I post them as my own.  So for those of you with me Saturday with cameras I need to get some goodness quickly.  Please and thank you. 

O, one more thing: Football Sunday is back, BABAY.  Cheers (Neither spell checked nor grammar checked this; I'm on a Mac and I don't remember how to "right click".  My apologies I hope you understand..).


  1. Real bloggers have cameras...I'm just saying.

    Kidding, sort of. I enjoyed your re-enactment of you getting "kicked out" of the front row of the concert. Did you write this beautiful piece of prose when you were SO bored waiting for people to get over their hangovers and go get some breakfast?

  2. i expect a better shout out than one of KathV's "hamiltonian friends" for the sweet pics i just sent your way. but i'm saving the one of you and your estranged father for facebook.
