i watched the memorial day service from the arlington cemetary this morning and was impressed that our national embarassment managed to give a speech that was properly respectful, without any self aggrandizment or whining about fake news and how he's getting abused by the press, like he did at the annapolis commencement.
then my friend arianna showed up for a planning session on our road trip. we planned on hooking up with the dead and company tour, but that fell through, largely because the venues aren't allowing tailgating and without tickets, we had no reason to go if we couldn't vend. ari has a friend who has a gig in LA we'll play at mid week next week and we both have friends scattered all along the track into the city from indio.
i spent the better part of the day in bed nursing a sore face. there is a plate in my jaw that sticks out through the gum that gets inflamed occasionally. today was one of those days
there was a gem show in big bear but it got cancelled due to a death in the producer's family. it was being put on by a rock shop that is holding something in store without vendors we're going to call on with our stones. then we'll probably hang out hustling tourists somewhere in the area. if there are no public spaces we can get away with it, there are several flea markets in the area.
