What a spot!! We are situated at mile marker 5…that means we are 5 miles to the end of the US….in Key West there is a mile marker 0 …looks pretty funny…it is the southern most part of the US…Just over the hill is Cuba….but fear not the Navy has this place under raps…every morning (unless its raining) at about 7:20AM about a dozon F15’s run their practice “touch and goes” gawd they loud….they go for about 2 hrs then they return ….cool to watch, for 1 or 2 days then they oughta go away so I can sleep.
You know I have all these stories but I have a permanent writer’s block problem. If I could be more disciplined I could get everything out I wanted to. I try 🙂 This was a cool year. Jan and I had a ball. We got to travel a bit and go to places we always wanted to experience.
Well in a couple of hours we will be on our way to Memphis for Keith Sykes and Todd Snyder show at the Gibson Lounge tomorrow night…then a few rib eating bouts ….then News Years Eve with Keith and the Revolving Band!…oh boy! Hope the holidays were fun for all of you…ours well let’s just say we’re different. Nuttin real bad but ..well you know. We like to leave for the New Year thing…actually this is a first I think but I will tell ya after seeing the same people from Thanksgiving on I need a break. Dont get me wrong family is family but on the other hand, family is like well….. family.
Well we got into town got a great room right on the corner of 3rd street 1 block up from the Rum Boogie on Beal….pretty cool…after the annoying drive through all the fans of the Game Cocks (who the hell are they)making their way to the Liberty Bowl…I must have missed something after the little bit of college they allowed me to have after I left the college and started working somehow I lost the school spirit thing that required you to do all kinds of obnoxious and outwardly projecting actions to mark you as the biggest fan of the team.
I mean after all it was the International Folk Alliance Conference. So everyone was all Folked up. About 2000 performers rained down on the mecca of blues, all of it being at the downtown Marriott….unbelievable scene…the conference is a networking meet and greet monster….anyone who is anyone was here… publicists, promoters, agents, and tons of artists …. of course the artist with the mostest was Keith Sykes who’s new record “Let It Roll” (Fat Pete Records)was the buzz about the conference center.
