Can't believe July is almost over...I feel like I'm behind on things. Web work, composing, recording, house repairs... it's never-ending.  On the other hand, I'm playing a ton of music.  My amusement park gig on Fri/Sat/Sun is pretty incredible.  I just sit in the sun for 5.5 hours working my loop station magic.  I pack as many tunes in as I possible can.  The time goes by rather quick when you're doing it like that.  Can't seem to break 75 tunes.  I keep trying hard though.  It's a fun thing to do!   I'm getting ideas for new songs, finally started working some brand new tunes in as well as getting some better ideas for more regular arrangements on the jams.   

I'm also getting a lot more funky stuff, the wah pedal is addicting.  Plus it's the environment.  20,000 plus walking by for such brief periods of time.  It's difficult to play the slow, longer developing songs.  I really want to hit them with something cool and upbeat.  It's a lot of work and the heat is mid 90s to low 100s everyday.  Come Monday I'm wiped out...which isn't good.  I have too much to do...tour planning!!!  Better get back to it.

Things are coming along nicely.  Got some Starbucks and some internet finally!  First day was a monster.  Up at 4:30am, in bed at 3:30am.  1100 Miles driven and a stop in Mobile, Alabama for some BBQ and a show at The Shedd BQQ and Blues Joint.  I sure do love that southern BBQ, slathered in sauce, spicy, sweet and yummy.  The Texas rub (what they call BBQ) is okay, but I got to have me some sauce.  That's what it's all about. 

Spent the 4th at my brother's place in Jacksonville, FL.  Did some yard work, played in the pool with the kiddies, did a little grillin' and fireworks in the rain.  Of course, since I didn't have much sleep I was ready for an early bedtime.  Got down the road a little towards Orlando today and looking forward to the show tonight.

As I was hanging out poolside, my bro and were napping and just watching the kids; talking a little about life, family stuff, jobs, etc...  it was a great time.  Sure do love my family.  Get to see an old Marine buddy tomorrow.  Spending my "spare" time working on the website.  No disc golf this trip. :(
