My second barbershop quartet has its first paying gig this Sunday afternoon! I'm with Joe Elmer, Dean Dix and Troy Williams. We do barbershop only, but have some cool songs I don't get to sing with Makeshift, like Ain't Misbehavin', Stepping Out (with my baby), Lullaby in Ragtime, and San Fransisco Bay Blues. Above is a video cap from a stage appearance a couple of years ago. I'll try to get a better group photo of us this weekend.
ahhh. finally got a couple of days to return to long point. Only two nights, but the weather was gorgeous, the bite was hot, and I slept and ate well. Jacks, blues and ladyfish were screaming. Particularly at dawn and dusk, but I found a great bite on gambler shads in the mid afternoon too. I wore my arm out.
Saw the space shuttle launch at 6:21am, it was still dark out, and I was on the water listening to the countdown over the radio. There were lots of families in the half full campground due to local spring break. I shared some food and fishing stories with an Apopka family camping two spaces over – the kids attend Lake Brantley HS, one of Gina’s local crew team rivals.
Boat ran well, but I’m postponing a needed $700 powerhead overhaul.
Stand by, I’ve got a couple of things to report on.
Rhapsody spun off from real networks and cuts its price by 33%. Wow, hope the service doesn’t die. I am a big fan and consumer. See http://www.baribob.net/?p=612 News reports have that it went from 800,000 to 675,000 subscribers in 2009, its getting eaten up by free streaming services and youtube.
