Last night the band played our usual Invasion Thursday in Surrey, B.C., but since it was the day before Good Friday, the usually fairly empty Thursday-night crowd was instead a packed house. They were pretty crazy—and so were we.
The playing was no easier than ever (it's always hard, but enjoyable, work), but the time flew by, and I left at 1:40 a.m. energized rather than depleted. The crowd makes all the difference.
Today, at home, we had a different sort of crowd. Kerry KLove and Jeff came over for dinner, but for the first time we were two couples having dinner with no kids around—their son and our daughters were all at their respective grandparents' for the night. We ate and talked, then the girls played The Sims while we guys jammed on organ and guitar in the living room for awhile. Finally, we all watched What Not to Wear, then said good night for the evening.
Yup. We're pretty exciting. No tantrums from anyone.
