3/15/15- 2:00, 5:00, and 8:00 p.m.
Once again this week I missed out on my Sunday morning breakfast ritual in lieu of sleeping in. I need to get my butt into gear next week!
My walking companion is Sammie, and every day I pitch a new preposterous idea to her on how we should perform the bit.
For the first show I acted out one to entertain the girls and shake up the monotony.
When I realized I had been left out in the cold, I turned towards the curtain, and channeling my best Marlon Brando in “A Streetcar Named Desire”, I dropped to my knees, clutched my hair, and threw my head back while wailing in agony, “SAAAAMMMMMIIIIEEEEE!”
I’m just lucky that there wasn’t any horse poop where I performed my impromptu, over the top theatrics, as I failed to check before I dropped to my knees.
Everyone’s laughter helped pick up our spirits and see us through the last performance.
3/16/15- 7:30 p.m.
Ryan and I couldn’t have asked for a better meeting. The brothers gave us their ideas and thoughts, Ryan and I did the same, and all of us left feeling energized and excited.
Big things are in the works, folks. Ryan and I are so excited.
Ryan and I made it back to Laredo at 5:00 p.m., only a couple of hours before our show.
We were told that a lot of rain was expected, and since the lot was a muddy mess for most of our stay in Laredo, I could totally understand the decision.
The show’s Bobcat had to move my trailer into position, so tonight I had to wait for it to be available during tear down to remove my trailer from its parking spot.
Finally I let Ryan know that I was in no shape to be driving a truck and trailer 140 miles after midnight. We had a long day, what with our 340 mile round trip to Donna, an exciting meeting, a non stop show, and loading out our props.
I was very happy that we agreed on the decision to get a good night’s sleep and tackle the relatively short drive to Corpus Christi in the morning.
