June 1st, 2nd and 3rd, DAVE at Aunt Kate's - Friday set up inside because it was calling for rain all night, never rained. Most folks were outside but I still had a few check the music out. Saturday afternoon was a lot of fun, playing out on the porch by the water. It doesn't get much better. Later it rained like hell! Sunday turned out to be a nice gig, the weather held. It got a little hot though. Later it rained like hell! I missed Jake's set on Friday. I think he was down in the Keys.
What a wonderful couple weeks. I was feeling a little under the weather the whole time but seem to be on the mend. It was nice to be home for a while to get some things done around the house. I'm looking forward to working for my friends in Cedar Key this coming weekend. Hopefully I'll get some things done on some of my musical projects this coming week. Thanks for letting me live my dream! Stop texting, start talking! Don't liter! Smile it could brighten someones day, even your own! Early detection can save your life! Keepin' It Real! -David
