I ran out of gas on my motorcycle.
Banner's mom came to the house to stay for the weekend.
I took waffles to the dog park at Amazon Park, walked laps with chatting with JT, and told him of all the shenanigans happening near me, Satya had quite a train wreck on Tuesday, the gossip factor of which demands that I tell the story to someone who is at least marginally removed. So that conversation lasted 5 laps of the park.
Later Went to BlairAlley barcade and caught up with Scot and Russell. Went to hang with them at Scot's place, where I used to live! Its now called the cathouse, because of reasons. We stopped at Old Nick's, then went to Black Forest for Dwight Dickinson show. Scot and I are sometimes members of Dwight's band, but he performed as a trio with Eddie Cancer on bass, and a new drummer named Dan ( who drives a sweet VW vanagon westfalia. ) I ran over to WOW Hall, as I had won tickets to Led Zepagain, cover band, and watched that for a while and had a beer in their lounge downstairs. Then I returned to Black Forest, had some pickle chips, then drove Scot and Russell to 80's night, just as it was ending. I was accosted by a longtime Soothesayers fan, Vanya. I was limited in what I could say about the Old Nick's Kerfuckle, didn't want to say that I think Tim is fucking up, and going after Emily, Vanya is a sweet kid, and he told me about all of his first edition vinyl of MC5, Stooges, Rocket from the Tombs, Johnny Thunders, etc etc etc etc etc etc etc
Yard Work, minimal eating, I had a microwaved Angus Burger patty with black rice, with horse radish, sriracha and some dried cherries for a desert.
I went to 'The Space' to play music with my Soothesayers people, Samantha and Jimmy. Jen and Chris joined us there with some 2 towns cider and tons of fresh raspberries and strawberries.
Stopped in at Pint Pot, and had their new smoked pork chop, with a thimble of Aardbeg 10 year scotch and a pint of guinness on nitro.
put the motorbike battery on the trickle charger.
Got my bike out for a ride! its a '92 nighthawk 750, probably needs a good going-through before I take it up to Portland or the coast... but I had fun today, and it ran great.
