Today is the longest drive of the tour. 567 miles from Denver to Lawrence, KS.. Weíve got about 140 miles to go and to be honest it hasnít been as bad as I thought. Maybe thatís because I slept for a couple hours. Hopefully these next few hours fly by.

Yesterday, I officiated my first wedding. An invited crowd of 150 friends and family watched over the event. Not that bad. I felt that things went a lot better than it would. Lots of people gave me compliments and that made me feel good. The main thing I wanted to do was make sure and give the bride and groom a good feeling about the wedding.

The reception was at an old theater called the GOTHIC. A place I was very familiar with since my early days with Skankiní Pickle. From about 1992-95 I probably played there 5 times. Fortunately itís been completely remodeled and made for a charming setting for the reception. Catered by TOMS COMFORT FOOD. Southern specials like catfish, green beans, corn bread, mashed potatoes, and some other treats were laid out for all of us to eat.

Of course I stuffed myself beyond the comfort zone, but fortunately by the time the dancing started I was good to go. Strutting my stuff on the dance floor made me realize two things:
A.I canít dance
B.It doesnít matter

I love to dance. Itís more fun than most activities. Perhaps I need to do it more often. Unfortunately Monica doesnít dance. It makes me sad. She sits alone in the corner. :(

We left at 11:30 PM. Back to the hotel we crashed out so we could get up early and eat the breakfast at the hotel before todays long drive. Letís see. I killed about 10 minutes writing this. Only one hour 50 minutes to go.
Be well.
