Waking up at 11:30 a.m.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Peaches, Maple Syrup, and Almond Milk. English Breakfast Tea.

Teaching a few afternoon lessons.

Back home. Ana, mom, and I eat lunch over an episode of Stranger Things 3 (2019).

Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Vegan Cream Cheese. Popcorn. Coffee. Watermelon.

Then, it’s time to load up and drive out to Norfolk for the Musicplayer gig at The Barrel Room. After a couple hours of setting up we do our thing. The crowd morphs over the course of our 3.5 hour set. We always like to engage the crowd throughout offering someone to play drums or bongos. Ronnie Talman sits in on harmonica for a few of the folk songs. A lively wedding bunch sits right in front hooting and hollering but not ever being too rude. They request all kinds of songs, one that I give in to, “Old Town Road” – Two of the dressed up dudes sing on the mic. I’m always proud of what Ana and I do. As mom points out later, ever since we started doing this we’ve elevated our show and tightened up. It’s really becoming a solid thing.

Enjoying Fish n Chips with some Veggies and a Beer.

Afterwards, packing up and loading out. It’s quite a process every time but especially here cause our cars are out in the back alley.

Back home finally enjoying some snacks and fruit. While watching some of the videos I joke, “I’ve been working on that vibrato for 10 years now. I think I finally got it figured out.”

Sleep 4:30 a.m.
