When it rains

| Posted on

Welcome to Aaron’s monthly log entry
Can’t tell the sky from the ground

Played in Sharon 1 October
With Martina’s father, Daryl
And Rick, and the
Good crowd, good original audience
Mrs. Rausch said, "I didn’t know you wrote your own songs"
No fault of hers that I don’t normally have the balls to play my own songs
It was fun

One of the benefits and curses to playing the home-town crowd
You’re always 17

Played 5 October down at the Harbour Lights
With the Mason Powell
We fought the good fight
Finally got paid without the subsidy from the bar

9 October found me at the convention
Kansas League of Municipalities
Century 21…or was it Century 2?
A block from where Travis Nittler’s wedding was reported
To not have been
I was pleasantly surprised to find our
Purple Wave
Three booths down from the Atronex /
Powergistic booth
Dave Williamson is the man behind the cool names
Atronex was the company from whom I sourced my components
When I built and sold computer systems back in high school
It was like being back in high school
Horsing around with Dave for two days

My world changed on Friday
Headed to another Buster’s show
I was in an automobile accident
They couldn’t tell if my ankle is broken
I have an appointment on Friday to find out
It doesn’t matter
My prayers are for the other party

I did have fun at Buster’s on Saturday
Long time since I’d drawn that well
Thanks to everyone for coming out
Thanks to Corey for helping me set up
Thanks to Aaron and Andrew for helping me tear down
Thanks to the deer for causing the damage to Dad’s truck
On the way home

I’m playing with Robert Hildreth
this Saturday
It’s my first weekend in Manhattan since late September
Feels like longer

Happy birthday, Uncles Stan and Steve
