I had a wonderful weekend. There really is nothing more relaxing than a 15 hour drive through Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin to forget about all the other cool things there are in life besides corn and cow-pies. It really should have been a 12 hour drive, but we decided to take an extra 3 hours to wait for the very nice trucker-man who chose to run out of gas on the highway.
The reason for the trip was an Easter Rising gig at a wedding reception in St. Paul, Minnesota, which was fantastic. We ended up playing about 3 times as much as we planned on, and it was completely worth every second of it. I hope everyone who was there agrees. St. Paul is an absolutely gorgeous city too - Each house seemed to have a certain character and feel of it's own, while the cottonwoods provided the Summer snow for us, because if it's not snowing in Minnesota the residents don't know what to do.
I won't bore you with all the details of the trip, but it turned out to be a great weekend. I also had the opportunity for a cleaning/recovery day yesterday, which was much needed. Steve got some new cat litter and we re-stocked his food as well. He fell asleep on my bed last night and I had a little impromptu photo shoot. Here's a pic of the little guy.
