Connie's treatment on the 9th went, according to people who know, very well. With this radiation surgery, as we found out with the brain radiation in March/April, takes a while to 'see' progress. The radiation works for literally months as it melts the tumors. Connie will get more CAT scans, etc. at the end of September.
Miller Ferry for a trip to probably our favorite place in Ohio: Put-In-Bay. It was celebration, but it was also recon to see if next year, we can spend a week out there.
Calabash at the Roundhouse, had a couple of beers on the Boardwalk overlooking 'the balls' where we used to park the boat, and Mustang Sally at the Beer Barrel.
Also, had a wonderful surprise that our good friend from Columbus, Craig, and Dennis and Karen's daughter Ashley, made the trip up. Such good times with our friends. We don't do it enough.
Friday, the 16th, we stayed over to Sandusky to watch Wally and the Beavs, another of our favorite 'bands of summer'. Watching Wally and the Beavs, for me, is like looking into a what could have been mirror had I have decided to play and gig instead of not. Guys look like they're having a blast, they play well, they play the tunes I would be playing and gigging with had I have chosen that route.
Sea Breeze RV park in Texas. They're trekking cross country from their home in New Jersey to Seattle to take their great grand son back to school. Fun showing off our town, just shooting the breeze with friends.
Wine and Walleye Fest was held last weekend (the 23rd - 25th) and it was so good to see our town alive and Bridge Street, in particular, welcoming so many guests for a weekend. Said hello to people we hadn't seen in years. The lighted boat parade was fun to see. With the advancement of generators, makes that really a neat option.
Started last night hopping back up on a podium and running a rehearsal for an Alumni Band performance at the high school where I taught. Felt like I never left.
Connie having a treatment this morning, and we both hope it doesn't knock her flat, but to quote Yogi Berra, "we never know until we know." Always clear the schedule from Wednesday through Sunday.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
