Observations From Behind Bars

Still Another Day in Paradise

Saturday found some folks wondering if their gasoline had thawed out, but found others in flip flops, out in the shed, doing a little maintaining on the big yella bike. I was just killing time, though, no scootering for us, today. The sun was out and the wind had laid down, but the temperature still wasn’t predicted to top 70°. Besides, we were bound for town and the Texan Bar to play music for a benefit. The Texan isn’t very large, but has a roomy informal kind of patio out back. Our friends in “Johnson Grass” were already there making the bikers and kickers tap their toes when we arrived.

This was our initial performance with English Pete and the first time in many years we played with a drummer. Mary was our percussionist and had a hand in getting the benefit off the ground, as well, so she was busy as a one-armed paper hanger, today.

Our first gig went well, especially considering it was out of doors with unfamiliar equipment. The bunch down at the Texan are a little less reserved than the Gold Wing group and more fun than a barrel full of prostitutes, so the afternoon was a hoot.
Between the poker run, barbecue plates and 50/50 sales (plus, excellent music), the day was considered an unqualified success.

A good time was had by all. Its just the kind of guys we are.
