I firmly believe that blogs should never start with “it’s been a long time since I blogged.” Such a fact is redundant, self-evident, and need not be repeated every time someone waits two months before making a new blog post.
So, now that that’s over, it has been a long time since the last post. Month and a half. I guess that’s not terrible. Unless you expected a blog every week. We’ve been busy and not busy, working on other things, getting our shows ready for the Christmas season, and looking forward to meeting some new people and seeing some new places.
Our big deal this month is going to be the Whistle Stop Opry show on Thanksgiving Saturday. That’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 25th this year. That show is in Xenia and will be part of a larger celebration going on in that town. We’re rehearsing with our friends John Orr and Don Winegar Jr., and thinking it’s going to be a hot time. A free CD goes to all who pay to get in. So you walk out with more than fuzzy warm good feelings for your ten bucks.
I have updated my pedal situation with an RC-300 looping station from Boss. It is (almost) everything and more than the Boomerang III I had, so the learning curve is not too steep. When I look down at it and the ME-70 and Vocalizer pedal and desaturate my vision, it looks like that.
And I think I will leave it at that for the time being. Work to do, you know.
