Coming This Week: September 7th – 13th

Sweet home Chicago!  This week we will be back in Illinois, doing shows around the Chicago area.   We will hopefully be arriving in time to watch the Bears season opener with some family.  I can’t think of a better way to start the season, BEAR DOWN!!!  And remember don’t call me on Sunday.  As you can see that map keeps getting more and more spread out.  We are trying to hit a number of markets before this tour ends for the year.  Next week we will hit Greensboro and Birmingham.

Song of the week: Boys from Alabama by Cross Canadian Ragweed


Week in Review:  Montreal was lovely but made so more by having a special tour guild.  We often make jokes about having family everywhere, we really do.  Josh’s cousin Andrea just moved to the city four months ago showed us around.  We tried to hit as many of the neighborhoods as possible but enjoyed Old Montreal above all.  Keeping with tradition we also tried poutine, a first for all of us.  I don’t know how I feel about it, a bowl of cheese, fries and gravy all good but a bit strange.  It is now checked off the list and we moved quickly to other yummy meals.

You don't have to ask me twice to go into a year round Christmas store!!!

Coming This Week: August 11 – 17

Alright this is going to be one crazy week.  For starters we are in Detroit for the next couple of days tying up some loose ends on Rohde & Schwarz.  We will be flying to Newark for a show with the Smithsonian Animal Connections truck on Wednesday.  That one will be crazy, we are parking the truck right in front of the New York Stock Exchange.  After that show Josh is staying with the Smithsonian for another week, I will return to Detroit to finish the last minute items for the re-launch of Rohde & Schwarz.  That truck will head to the Chicago area for a series of shows.  Josh is staying with Smithsonian to for a series of shows in Newark.  He will then meet me in Chicago.

Yup, it’s going to be crazy.
