You know how sometimes it feels like summer just goes flying by and before you know it, school buses are back on the road, the leaves are falling, and Mark gets his annual “fall haircut”?
Well this year, it appears summer has decided it was going to start (and apparently end) late. Have you noticed? I have. Know why? Because it seems that ever since the Minnesota State Fair – which was the end of August mind you – almost every show we’ve done (either indoor or out) has been ludicrously warm. No, not warm, let’s say balmy. Like the Everglades on the 4th of July. Minus the gators. However, throw in as many flies as there were at one particular show, and I dare say I may rather choose gators to contend with. At least Jared could take care of them, what with his extensive gator wrestling background and all…plus, Mark’s fly wrestling background didn’t come in handy at all that night…:(
Anywho, I like summer as much as the next guy, but sometimes it’s nice to “spread the wealth” as they say – not complaining, just saying.
In conclusion, I think we all learned a valuable lesson which apparently starts with me not complaining about not having much heat/sun back in June (see my June blog entry “summertime blues”), and also that in certain cities, flies seemingly live indoors. And Mark’s wrestling skills need some brushing up.
Whatever the case, be sure to catch us this fall or on the 2013 Holiday Tour, and ask to see Jared’s alligator skin boots, and for Mark to demonstrate the world’s tiniest full nelson. It’s remarkable.
