Seven Day Challenge

OK. So I have narrowly escaped passing the one-month-of-no-blogging mark. I could blame my absence on work, which I suppose is partly true; when I get home I'm often tired and don't feel like writing. But it's also due to feeling like I don't have that much to say. Haven't had much time to be philosophical about ol' South Pas. Being in that same spot as I sit here, I'm not sure where to start. It did occur to me when I sat down that I should see if anyone was interested in going over to the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses float building and helping out. If you're interested in meeting at the float some time next Saturday, please leave a comment.

I did play at the Vintage Clothing and Antiques festival about a month ago. That was fun. Half of the people who listened to me were under the age of five, which is a compliment if you ask me. I was happy for the most part with how things went. My drummer and I weren't able to practice with the guy who played bass with us until the night before. All things considered, it went well. The only gig in LA I've ever done that I could walk to.

So, my title is alluding to a personal challenge I have made to post at least once each day for the next week. We'll see.

I understand that there was a bit of a falling out between the traditional crew of float volunteers (mechanics, welders and the like) and the South Pas Tournament of Roses. It may be that this year is the first that the float is not all volunteer, but a company is hired for most of that work. Not sure where the extra cash for that would come from. The builder-volunteers have been a staple (and really rather insular) group for a lot of years.

Syncer, I haven't had a chance to stop by yet. I hope they'll at least talk to me.
