    Saturday night and I'm playing to the videos and radio... I really want a gig. I need a Honky Tonk! That's all folks- just had to vent!

    One more year, and it'll be all over.

    I'm not being sardonic. That's the timeline. Just know that this is hard, but it's not forever. The end is in sight.

    I still remember tuning up my dad’s flattop, then mine, then getting his Flatt and Scruggs albums ready so when he got home from work we could play along with his albums. Now he’s gone, I still play along with Flatt and Scruggs on YouTube. I know you really want to gig. I’m glad one day you will.

    Yeah, unfortunately our local county Arts Council is on the verge of canceling next Fall's line-up of gigs coming here to perform.:( I don't even get to jam with my friends, but I feel real bad for the players out there who make their living doing this.

    I’m having so much fun playing to music that I fear I’m losing memory of the real thing.

    I only hope I don't run out of time before the show starts again.

    Are you sure? Some of us are old enough to remember when it was “two weeks”...
