Sorry about the gap. I’ve been focusing exclusively on the Purple Wave and I’ve been really sick. I finally sold for a while yesterday at our big clock auction and I’d sell one lot, cough a few times, and sell another. I normally wouldn’t have been up at all but Aaron was in the same fix. He sold until he couldn’t talk anymore and then threw me up for an hour or two. The auction was quite a success, though. Ok, enough about that.

The good thing about having three auctions last week is that this week will essentially be a week off of auctions. I’ll have time to get well, learn new songs, and do some writing, hopefully.

I went to the McClure show Thursday and he was pretty sick. It sounded like a Willie Nelson show. Mike couldn’t hold a note to save his ass. I didn’t mind at all, being sick myself. We’ve all played shows where we weren’t 100%. Trevor and I decided that we were the only two in the crowd that could tell. It’s too bad, too, because I don’t know if they’re coming back. I hope they do; good times.

Well, I’m going to watch the new Star Trek that aired last week and then it’s a dive into my MP3 collection. I’m almost finished tweaking it, then I can put it away and not think about it. It’ll be nice buying music and not going through the headaches of renaming thousands of files a year.

Oh…and another thing: an Al Franken show is not a place to take a Republican on a quasi-date.
