Friday's Feast 152



On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how much do enjoy watching sports on television?

Zero. If sports didn't exist I wouldn't know the difference.

If you could completely memorize any one work of fiction, which one would you pick?
I don't really know... I guess I don't see any value in memorizing fiction.... hmmm.

What is your favorite breakfast food?
Depends... Biscuits and gravy probably. I never get moving enough to cook big for breakfast, so we have stuff like this later in the day. It's still good though.

Main Course
Name something fun you can do for less than $10.00.
A town nearby has a great weekly summer concert series - you can see the main band, or a bluegrass band, or just regular people jamming on the corner. You can get something to eat from a local charity food booth, walk along the river, or walk down the street and watch another band for free as well. If we take the bike, we don't even spend much gas money.

How long does it usually take you to fall asleep?
Sometimes it's pretty immediate, but sometimes it can take hours. I usually have to read first to wind down.

I bet it smelled awesome...

but somebody had too much time on their hands.

Somebody read my mind!!!

Friday's Feast #150


How many pieces of jewelry do you wear most days?
Only my earrings, they've been in for probably a year. They are very lightweight hoops, I don't even know they are there. Otherwise, jewelry bugs me. I don't ever wear a wedding ring, which says nothing about the state of my marraige, which is great!

What is your favorite instrumental song?
Jerusalem Ridge, as played by Kenny Baker or my fiddle instructor.

Who has a last name that you like?
I really like my own last name but I'm not sure if it's smart to post it publicly here.

Main Course
Name a popular movie you've never seen.
Star Wars. Nothing about it appeals to me.

Fill in the blank: Nothing makes me ___________ like ____________.

Nothing makes me giggle like

Street Entertaining

I joined up with a group on Friday night that plays on the street corner at a local weekly festival. They played mostly country songs that I didn't know very well, but they passed me some breaks and I winged it as best as I could. I was asked to play the obligatory "Faded Love", which I turned down and played "I'll Be All Smiles Tonight" instead. "Ashokan Farewell" is another fiddle tune, and I was asked to play it and I did. We had an audience of anywhere from 10 to 25 at any given moment, but I doubt I was heard except a couple of songs where they passed me the mike. Unfortunately, a fiddle is not that loud with a group of guitars and mandolins, and a banjo, harp, and accordian. But it was fun. I was half the age and the opposite gender of all the other players so I stood out like a sore thumb.
