Oh Windy Day

I'm in the back of the van right now. We just got pulled over.
Thankfully it was just because the lights on the back of the van
weren't working. I was actually the one who plugged them in when we
hooked up the trailer tonight, and It felt like they were in
securely. But something was off. James said he actually had to try a
couple of times before he got them to come on with the police officer
standing there. Whew. Glad it was a simple "jiggle the handle" kind of
fix.

We're driving through the night tonight to get to TN. We actually play
at Maryville College tomorrow :) It's so fun to play in TN!

Tonight we played Indiana University in South Bend. They had a big
stage with lots of different bands set up on a giant lawn in between
some of their on campus residential housing. It was beautiful!!! And
quite the windy day!!! At one point, I just resolved to having to sing
with hair in my mouth the rest of the show. There was nothing I could
do. And I had to position myself awkwardly every time I played to try
to keep my hair from blowing across my fiddle. When that happens, my
hair gets caught under the bow and prevents sound from coming out! Not
a good thing. I think I did a good job of still trying to look cool...
But it just felt awkward. I couldn't look in Miguel's direction at all
or ALL of my hair would blow over my face for the "Cousin It" look. :)
The wind actually blew David's guitar over during the show :( But it
seems to be ok - at least right now.

The show was really fun. It was the typical spring fling - dunking
booth, lots of food, Greek life "pie in the face" booths... And tons
of people were flying kites and free massages were being given out (I
took part in those!) - and dance contests were happening while the
bands were switching over.

We were actually supposed to play at 6, but the band that was supposed
to go on at 5 was stuck in traffic. We were already there though, so
we went on at 5. We've been the band stuck before!!! That is SO not
fun to be unable to get there in time. It was awesome to have gotten
there early
enough to help out.

So yeah. We played. The wind was strong, the kites were high, and the
dancers were all over the lawn!

Wish I had pics, but this was one where we had to pack up so quickly
that I was unable to hang out very much after the show. I don't like
it when that happens... But that's the way it goes!

Peace. Love. Fiddle.

Hay : )

I can't belive it's been about 4 days since I've been on my computer; I've just read about your busy as usual last few days : )

Please let Miguel know that I'm sorry that his grandmother passed away. I pray that Miguel and his family find comfort in knowing they will see her again in heaven.

Happy Birthday to Jessie !! I'm glad she's legal at all your events now : )

I think Mark and Janice are some of the coolest fans in the universe, it's awesome to see them attending so many of your shows !!

I hope and pray the rain will be good to you this weekend and not wash you more than you want to be washed : ) : )

And I hope everyone is praying for the critters and people in the Gulf area, and praying that the oil leak will be stopped and the damage controlled immediately !!!
