Waking up at 11:07 a.m.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Peaches, and Kefir. Coffee with Honey.

Teaching a round of lessons at Music Makers from 12:30 till 3:30.

Then, I'm off to Richmond for our second ELO gig. No matter which route I take traffic is an obstacle. Scarfing down lunch on the way there: Tuna Salad Sandwich with Tomato, Ghost Pepper Potato Chips with Avocado, and Honey Green Tea.

I arrive right on time. It's an auto auction place where people (mostly dealers) buy cars. Tonight they're celebrating some kind of anniversary for the place. There's banquet tables, a barbecue, beer, and wine. We go on first pretty much as soon as I get line checked with my instruments. Compared to last night it's a much better tighter set. I enjoy some Barbecue Chicken and Cole Slaw for dinner.

Then, the Right On band goes on, the best 70's show band around. I can appreciate this style of music like I do all styles of music but it's still not my cup of tea, as far as performing goes. But Nigel straps on his stilettos and the whole band struts a sequins wardrobe. And together they produce a high quality show.

Afterwards, I drive into downtown Richmond and pick up a half dozen Cookies from Red Eye and a cup of Milk.

Before I drive back home I'm able to read an apology letter Ana wrote me in regards to her feelings from last night. In it she states that my mom and I have souls of gold.

Back in Virginia Beach.

Settling in. Sleep at 3:30 a.m.
