Agriculture, skepticism, politics

It’s 9:43pm and I haven’t yet left my apartment. It’s so nice to have a comfortable place to live with Internet access. I’ve been doing a lot of geek work and I’m up for a break.

I played with Blaine last Friday in Wakeeney, KS. It’s been a while since I had so much fun. I played something like six originals, covered one of Rob’s songs, then played some more originals before playing one of Trevor’s songs. I think I got through everything but Republican. I should have played Republican…I may have avoided this guy talking to me for 30 minutes, trying to convince me to go to Afghanistan on a USO tour. He said his good friend was Darryl Worley. I nodded as if I knew who he was. The guy was nice and had some nice things to say, but I don’t think Afghanistan is the best place for alt-country music.

The Lincoln County Fair was a struggle, but we somehow pulled it out. There was a decent crowd that liked the folk and bluegrass. We don’t get to play that kind of music very often.

Dodge City Days this weekend.
