Are You a Band?

The elevator at this hotel smells JUST like the hotel elevator at the Light House Inn in Gulf Shores - where we always stayed when I was a little girl. Isn't that amazing how our brains can remember a specific smell from 20 years ago?? Crazy!

We headed out to Palm Beach State (formerly Palm Beach Community College) this morning for our show. They weren't quite ready for us, so we headed out to grab some breakfast. The guys ran into Einstein Bagels but there was a Starbucks across the street... and they had breakfast sandwiches... so I couldn't pass it up.

The girls at Starbucks were so sweet! I was all done up for the show, and they were all asking me where I got my jewelry. And then as we were leaving, the barista ran outside and up to the car. We stopped and rolled down the window - she said "We have a bet going inside the store. Are you guys a band?"
:)
I guess when you see a girl in ripped up jeans, big hair, and sitting with 4 guys, driving a van with a trailer... your natural assumption would be = band. But the fact that she ran all the way outside... is... AWESOME. She's already found me on facebook. I'll have to go back there tomorrow to see her!

Our show went great. We love PBS in Boca. Mark is so sweet to us. We were just there last semester, and it is so great to already be back! They had a huge banner hanging in the student center when we arrived.


And after the show - a big ole jam session broke out! Mark, who hires us to play, is an excellent bass player. He and a couple students started playing, then David joined in, and well... they entertained us! I could get used to that! Entertain... then be entertained.


James' bass drum head split right down the middle... so we had to go find a music store to get a new drum head. After a few more errands... and a bit of rest... it was time for:

VIVA CHILE!!! Mmmmm Mmmm Mmm. Miguel discovered this restaurant last time we were here. It is sooooo yummy. We had a wonderful meal, and Miguel's cousins met us there! I had the Pastel de Choclo. Mmmm it's like putting chicken, meat, and onions, baked in sweet cornbread. And of course we had some empanadas!!!

Peace. Love. Fiddle.

If I saw a purty "girl in ripped up jeans, big hair, and sitting with 4 guys, driving a van with a trailer" I would have thought, oh boy, the beautiful gyspy girls and their caravan are back in Shady Grove !! HOORAY !!
