Hung Out With Barney Fife and Played With The Drifters

Well...

We got completely rained out for the first 2 shows today. It was so disappointing. We got to the fair grounds around 10:30am and sat and sat and sat... in soaking wet clothes... until 5pm. We left to go put on some dry clothes at that point and came back for our 8:00 show. But since we hadn't had any way to set up yet, we were having to set up quickly on the fly, and get a sound check all at the same time. Our set was supposed to be from 8-8:30. (The final set is a quick one) Our poor sound guy, Leon, who we love, was running around like crazy. There just wasn't enough time.

At about 8:20 he was close to having the sound set up. It is so stressful for EVERYONE involved to be trying to get the sound right and just standing on stage not being able to do anything with an audience present. SUCKS. But Leon got things done very quickly and we just played late tonight. It was a bit of a rough show. I think we were all off-kilter for, well, the number of reasons I have already mentioned. Plus, it started "misting" (the best way I can describe it) during the last part of the show. The Drifters were on the stage across the way... so our sound was competing with one another. Does it count for me to say I've played "with the Drifters" now on my resume? I was playing an original while they were playing "Under The Boardwalk" :)

I DID get to hang out with "Barney Fife" during a lot of the day. He actually asked us to go out to the bar with him tonight... but we are all spent and gonna have to hang another night. (He's already been here for 5 days!) He was awesome. He and Gomer drive around in their crazy Mayberry police car all day.


Peace. Love. Fiddle.

Hay : )

I missed connecting with you so much !!

This is the first time I've been on the puter for days.

Thanks for your prayers regarding me and the six kittens. I have seperation anxiety already and I want to keep them all, including the new one (number 7 named Puff) who appeared all alone last week (eatin my outside critter food) with no family in sight, sick and crying, but now he's safe inside and so cute !! I worker two days to get him to let me pet him because trapping is so hard with my vision stuff.

I just pray that the homes they get will be good ones.

I am still sad that I lost one of my feline feral friends. About 6 moths ago the mother of our 6 kittens had two that were feral (wild) and I caught one and got it placed and I worked with the other one named Little Sweety so much and got her to let me pet her and was going to bring her in that night after I prepared another room seperate from all the kittens, but she got run over on the highway. I'm such a big baby I still have tears in my eyes about her now. God be with you Little Sweety, I hope to play with you again in heaven !!

At least she was fed well and loved here and she went quickly; but most feral cats have a very difficult life.

I very much enjoyed catching up on your blog, and we have another thing in common, I met Don Knotts when I was SAC activities cordinator at Univ. of Memphis.

I love Barney since he is such a great farmer because he nips any probs in the bud : )

Have fun on the road !! I better go cause I got kittens to feed ( AGAIN : )

Peace, Love you and your fiddles too !!
