Or A Big Ole City

Thanks for the prayers Farm Boy! Lord knows we appreciate em!

We drove through the night last night to get to Ga State University. We got here at 9:30 (our load in was at 10)... James was quite the champion driver!!! He drove the whole way here.

But even though we arrived 30 minutes early... we made it to the venue 30 minutes late. The students had a hard time explaining where we should go. It's not an easy thing to do, ESPECIALLY in a big city like Atlanta. Plus... the equation of one way streets + a 14 foot long trailer = CHAOS. But we eventually got to where we needed to be (Whew), and got all set up. We had a GREAT couple of guys running sound for us - Coi and Ben. They were so helpful in getting us up and running speedily! We didn't have enough time for David to open. And THANK GOODNESS Jessie drove down from Nashville to help me with my merchandise! I'm not sure I would have even had time to set it up had she not been here!!!

The way the event was set up - food, games, streets performers, and dj's... they wanted us to play a 30 minute set with a 30 minute break and then another 30 minute set. It is so funny how trying to program a 30 minute set is more difficult for me than programming a 90 minute set! :) I guess that's not really a "problem" per say. Plus I like a good challenge. The show worked out great. AND I got quite the sun tan in the process. :)

Parking in a big city is always a challenge. ESPECIALLY when you have an oversized vehicle and trailer. Our hotel doesn't have any way to accommodate us, so the school had to get creative on where to have us park! But they were so helpful. James and I were double parked... moving... then double parking again... as we were waiting on instructions where to go. After about 3 1/2 hours, though, it all got figured out. And YAY!!! The lobby had free food, beer, and wine in the lobby when we got back. Could there have been a better surprise than that? Don't think so. Just what we all needed!!!

Jessie and I even hit up the all night diner on the next block after Lost, which was an excellent choice. And then I have spent the last few hours finishing up some good ole tax work. Yes. I realize what day it is. Yes. My accountant LOVES how much I procrastinate. :)

And Yes. I can barely keep my eyes open. Goodnight!

Peace. Love. Fiddle.

You and James sure parked a lot, I bet there was some sparkin going on too : ) (I reckon you know sparkin is countrified for making out, which we think is a citified term for kissin and such : )
