i forgot to mention i went by cavender's on saturday. i picked up a couple of pearl snap shirts, as well as a hard plastic hat box for cowboy hats. my most prized purchase though is one of those wire hat holders with a spring that you affix to the inside roof of your truck. now i need a gun rack.
i went solo to the wild river band show at the mucky duck sunday evening. the wild river band was good. herb remington appeared to be in a good mood and was joking around quite a bit, which i think led him to play more and with more spark. how can you not appreciate getting to see/hear the man himself perform "remington ride"? i wasn't all that excited about the venue though. i'd been there once or twice before, but never for a show. (i'd also sat outside, not inside.) don't get me wrong, it's a nice place and the sound was good -- but it's sort of more like going to a somewhat ritzy dinner theater than going to a live concert: the lighting is dark with candles on the tables; there's a bar but most of the floorspace is table seating -- thick, dark wooden tables with ornate dark-wood chairs sporting deep complex-patterned upholstery; the short stage is in one corner of the room; and they're serving food. now this was pitched as "super supper sunday" or such so maybe it doesn't always have that feel, but i'm guessing the place generally has a more sophisticated, sit-down, quiet vibe. i think i prefer places like blanco's and the continental club more. perhaps when i get in my 50's my preferences will change.
moving on to the sale of my house -- i'm not really excited about living in it while it's showing, but i don't have much choice. i'm sure the cat is pretty freaked out by all of these strangers coming into the house all of the time too. i guess at this point it sort of feels like what's happened to the rest of my life due to the affair and tamara taking advantage of the situation in the courts. (i'll refrain from explaining that at this point in time. maybe later.) the house has been shown around 15 times so far, and there have been 3 or 4 offers made at this point. none have been for the asking price.
