This morning most of us had ice on our windshields; I used a "My Panera" card to scrape it off, freezing my fingers in the process.
I accomplished many things once I got to Farmington: I went into town and did laundry, I sent some money home at the post office, I got my hair cut, and I went grocery shopping.
I picked Ryan up afterwards so we could have lunch at Steak & Shake.
Later in the day and also during the shows I cleaned my trailer, which it definitely needed!
Tim Smith, who owns a place in town called the Vault (http://www.thevault204.com/The_Vault/The_Vault.html), his wife, Kerry, and their friend, Steve (who is a photographer), all came to the first show.
Tim brought fantastic gifts for us: stickers for me and Ryan, and awesome posters for Becky.
The three of us went out to visit with Tim, Kerry and Steve during Intermission. I can't get over the fact that I fell for the old hand buzzer gag from Tim.
Courtney Heidenreich, who worked here in 2009, had the day off from work in St. Louis, so she was also around watching the show and visiting with folks.
The ground today was very difficult to work on; we could barely keep stable footing. Luckily the crowds helped make up for it, especially the second audience, which was fantastic!
Their response was a great way to end our (first) run in Missouri.
