So, let's see . . . as expected, we had a great time in Saskatchewan. As it turns out, Saskatoon is a lovely city (at least in the summer), and we spent several days hanging out with the people of CLAY. Though that sounds like I'm talking about Davey and Goliath, it's actually an acronym, as you can see. Met some great folks, and we're looking forward to visiting our Neighbors to the North for concerts in the months ahead.
After our Canadian excursion, I met my family at Michael's house in California, and then my family embarked on the august Great California Road Trip, which took us from Los Angeles to San Francisco, visiting all the important vistas along the way, and being welcomed by this spry fellow who came out of the water to greet us.
Once we reached San Francisco, we dutifully left our hearts there, and headed back home, so that I could repack and go to Kansas City.
After Delta decided that a blinking light in the cockpit was cause for getting it turned off, my flight was delayed enough that I missed my connection, so Michael sat around waiting for me in Kansas City, chatting with the locals and whatnot. Once I finally arrived, we headed off to Missouri, which loves company, and we billeted in Clinton, MO.
We played songs for a couple worship services in the morning in Clinton, and then had a lovely lunch with the youts at a local restaurant, and then headed back for a happy afternoon concert in town there. Then it was back to Kansas City for a little sleep before flying home in the morning.
Next up, Michael will become a year older than I, and on that same day my three-year church job comes to an end. Then, Michael comes to visit me in Ohio, as we embark on the august Great Midwest Road Trip from Toledo OH to Decorah IA, and all points in between.
See? An august month indeed!
Oh, and don't forget, our new double live album is available for your purchasing and listening pleasure. You can find it here.
