Song of the week: Judy Garland – When You’re Smiling, this selection comes via Becky!!!

Week in Review: It was another amazing weekend for me!! I took a drive over to Cincinnati and got in some lady time with my best girl Becky. We usually get to see her once a year for dinner while on our way somewhere. So spending an entire day together was fantastic. Although there might be a few sales clerks scarred for life, lol.

We had a new “road” experience. While leaving Indianapolis with winds gusting at 26 mph a box spring came off of a pickup next to us. It narrowly missed smashing into our truck (we displace a lot of air) and thankfully flatted onto the road before hitting a car. We were the only ones to stop so I can only think that the cars were ok.

As tradition holds we also lost a part in Illinois, the winds on the plains seem to always manage to break something off. This time is was the cover on a mirror.

Coming This Week: September 28th – October 4th

This week is not set in stone, for once.  We are staying in Dallas a few extra to finish some truck maintenance and have the remainder of the week to drive to San Diego.  Right now we are planning to stop in Albuquerque and Phoenix but all that can change.  Next week will be split between San Diego and Irvine California.  Looking forward to watching football with family and some scottie visits.  This marks the last month of our tour season with Rohde & Schwarz.  They will be taking the truck down until February.  We do the last tour stops in Silicon Valley.

Song of the week: If I Get Murdered in the City – The Avett Brothers

 

Week in Review: Josh and I are now Texans, having finished changing our residency.  We  also hit up another Best 20 Burger Joint, Keller’s Drive-In.  I’m starting to think this list is a bit off.

We have just a few weeks left with our current client for 2014, hitting two places in the lower central region.  Kansas City then down to Dallas.  The week after Dallas is a travel week to get out to California.

Song of the week: Zorba the Greek – Mikis Theodorakis, This week’s selection has led to some of the greatest movie scenes in history.  I am featuring it because last week this song came on just as Josh and I were seated at a greek restaurant.  We both immediately looked at one another waiting for something to happen.  Listen to this song while taking off in an airplane, it’s a fun experience.  A few weeks ago we saw a preview for The Paddington Bear movie, which featured this song.  I’m not sure that it is going to be a good movie but this song in the preview, made us both want to see it.

 

Week in Review: We had a lovely visit with The Campbells, a major reason we like North Carolina so much.   They took us to the Central Carolina Fair, who doesn’t’ like a carnival?!

Coming this Week: April 13th – 19th

I’ve been away from the blog for a while, but not off the road. Our schedule has been a bit nuts lately, hitting lots of locations. It is not going to slow down either so I’ll share a bit with you and hopefully update the calendar this week.

We are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area this week with stops all over the place. Next week is a bit slower for work with just two stops around Kansas City but we have decided to make it a bit tighter by adding a visit to my hometown over Easter weekend.

Coming This Week: January 5th-11th

Best to start the year off with the wheels turning. After departing from our office in Detroit on Monday we will meet up with the Rohde & Schwarz truck in Dallas. Spending a few days there to get maintenance completed and the carpets cleaned will ease us into the first drive, to The Bay Area.

The tour launches Jan 14th with two weeks worth of shows in the South Bay but you can bet on a trip up to Petaluma to see our family.

Song of the Week: Elvis Presley Blues by Gillian Welch

Review: Last week was our last week of vacation for a while, not that we are sad Rohde & Schwarz is sending us south!!!!  We did try to fill the week with some fun like visiting The House on the Rock and a few movie.

Coming This Week: February 17 – 23

This will be our fourth week in Texas, couldn’t be happier. It’s not that I don’t enjoy snow but I do not enjoy doing shows in cold winter dregs. There have been some chilly and windy days down here but all in all it’s a dream. This week and next keep us in the Dallas market with a quick excursion to Kilgore, TX. A trip I am assured will be interesting.

My dear friend Katherine shared this article about transitioning from DVD to USB as a media sharing vehicle. I’m a convert, and after discussing this with a few other photographer friends, have also figured out a solution to some backup storage issues we have been running into. DVD is to volatile for our lifestyle to use as a secondary backup method, the first being an external hard drive. one hot day and we could ruin a stack of DVDs.
