Back Home Again from Indiana

(sung in your best Jim Nabors voice... no not the Gomer Pyle voice)

I had a good weekend with Wolf. The drive down on Friday was slow because I left too late and hit rush hour in both Dayton and Cincinnati (doh! When will I learn?). Friday dinner was at my favorite Mexican restaurant, El Caporal in Clarksville, Indiana. Saturday we went to Otter Creek Park southwest of Louisville along the Ohio River. It was kind of drab because the clouds were moving in and it's not spring yet. But we saw a couple of barges on the river and a train alongside the river, which almost made up for the lack of wildlife. (Note to self: go off into woods or the nature center next time.) We crossed the river at Brandenburg and drove home down twisty turny roads that might be fun if you had a motorcycle. Sunday in between showers, we had dinner with animist at Kobe's Japanese Steak House. Wolf and Bob had sushi, and I had chicken teriyaki which was not only cooked, but cooked very well. A good time was had by all.

Monday on the way out of town I visited my cousins Melinda and Matt in Louisville. We had sandwiches at Mark's Feed Store (barbecue, yum) and went to a CD store that's closing this month. My new acquisitions: Eddie from Ohio's Quick (2001) and Michael Hedges' Aerial Boundaries (1984; replaces vinyl). On the way home last night I enjoyed both CDs. I actually made great time coming home -- left Melinda's at 6:15 p.m. and got home at 12:35 a.m., which might be my record time.

Music Alert: I'm planning to go to open mic tomorrow night at The Ark in Ann Arbor, along with jjfmi. It'll be fun, I'm sure -- always fun to go to The Ark.

It was good to see you again, and I'm glad you had a nice visit here! It's fine that you don't eat sushi... more for me! Hahahah!

I'll have to pass on the Jim Nabors impression. The last time I heard him sing was on the "Golden Throats" disc - the very same one where I became grateful that Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner and Eddie Albert all had day jobs. Hearing an operatic Gomer Pyle singing "You Are The Sunshine of My Life" is just.... wrong.

"Aerial Boundaries" , on the other hand, is one of the best acoustic guitar albums ever, IMHO...

"Aerial Boundaries" is cool, isn't it? I'd forgotten how much I liked it.
