Coffee in the Los Angeles skyline mug, but should'a been in Austin, "Bayou Tortous" by James McMurtry on iTunes. Wednesday night--the night before my lost day yesterday--Dave and I drove to Athens (GA) and saw him live (first time for me). The crowd was sparse and with no effort I was front and just to the right of the mic stand. Bliss. What a great concert. I can't believe I didn't hang at the Continental Club every Wednesday night at midnight to see him play when I lived in Austin. And I can't believe he isn't firmly entrenched on the top of the list of the hottest singer/songwriters in America. His voice, his writing, his music... magic. Now back to glass.
After two nights of little sleep I was exhausted, but yesterday saw me on the road to Commerce at 7:00 am to meet Bill and get a load of metal work. Back in the studio I fired a full load with the penultimate yellow frit #02--have to hold on the rest of the pieces that need it till next week--including the sidelights I'm doing for GPQ. Unfortunately, though I have a little left, the rest of the pieces I have scheduled need more than I have. Ended the day with a bit more data modeling/database implementation (Filemaker Pro arrived Wednesday and I know just enough to be dangerous). Today I'm rested, I'm slumping a load, and I'm going to look into an on-line class/tutorial for Filemaker. I could just read the book I got (Filemaker Pro the Missing Manual), but that would be too easy.
