Yes, it has been over 5 months since I blogged. I don’t know why other than to say, I haven’t had the time. But more accurately, I haven’t TAKEN the time.
It’s not that nothings been happening, by any means, but more like everything that’s been going on is outside my musical path. The new house has been revealing its hidden “blemishes”. The biggest was the sewer drains. I called the plumbers to have a tub drain unclogged, and $3500 later, I had a new sewer line to the city’s tap. Then, it took another $600 to get the tub working. And I’ve been real busy correcting blemishes on the house we’re selling (which should close in 3 days!). And that’s just the recent stuff.
I did get in a few musical moments, among which were performances in Arizona for a “Porch Fest” with my trio and a solo show at the Laveen Folk Festival. That little Festival is turning into a really nice musician’s reunion out among the cow-patties. And it’s only 2 miles from my grand-kids so naturally, I brought my own audience.
I gave up waiting on my studio space renovation and set up a make-shift studio in our guest bedroom. It’s cumbersome but it has allowed me to record my light-hearted global warming song “Tucson Bay” (if global warming can be light hearted, I’m the guy to do it). Next, I’ll get to work on my new 2020 “Valentine’s Day song” for my Bride. It’s an annual ritual. I keep telling myself to produce an album of those love songs. Once the old house sells, and I can get some cash for a studio renovation, I just might take that on as project number 1.
Meanwhile, I’ll get “Tucson Bay” mixed and posted for your enjoyment. Just remember that Humor is “Laughing at stuff that ain’t Funny”.
