The last shows

As with normal The Art of Whimsy fasion, the last two shows were not without some adventure. The first show was up in Truckee, about an hour east of auburn. The plan was to leave at four, get there by five and start playing at seven. Well we didn't leave until five, no problem though that would get us there at six with an hour to spare. Half hour into the drive nathan realized that he forgot his guitar. This meant turning around getting the guitar and starting the journey all over again. On the way back, the windshield wiper fell off. So driving through the snow, then rain, then snow again on the way back up the hill to truckee was not ideal with no windshield wipers. Bit we made by seven and were playing music only about thirty or so minutes late. Plus a friend had tried to come to the show but got lost and tried unsuccessfully to get a hold of me. (my phone was not working well at the moment).

Playing at the paradise grill went well except for the fact that ownership changed the week before so there was some confusion as to whether or not we were going to play. As well, shock of all shocks nathan was an hour and thirty minutes late. Though he does have a really good excuse; he Moved to Hawaii the very next day, leaving at 8:30 in the morning. I would have cancelled the show, but I am glad he didn't since a good time as had by all who came including me.
