My Latest Dive Into the Deep End of the Pool

Because I am so good at getting in over my head (i.e. photographer) I decided to see if I could get some live music happening in our tiny town. The mayor gave me the okay for the Village Green gazebo along with the city supplying electricity (because I don't know any a cappella acts doggone it!). The next challenge would be finding musicians willing to play for donations.

I asked my wonderful neighbors (Casey County's version of a modern Von Trapp family!) and a young man I work with (rock & roll). Both of them agreed. Am I lucky or what?

I still had 2 dates to fill so tonight I went over to Uncle Bob's restaurant in Stanford for their open mic night.

What a treat that was! Outstanding aesthetics, decent food, and more musicians than you could shake a stick at! A person I met through work was there and he introduced me to several other performers, one of whom agreed to take the September 7th date.

This has all gone so smoothly that I am pensive about the impending disaster with my name on it that must be out there. Or perhaps I used all my chaotic karma at the wedding and this really is good to go!

P.S. Hurt or Nine Inch Nails- if you are reading this, I can offer you the date of September 14th!
