Default Leaving Soon :(

Well my days here are numbered as I am leaving for Ohio in less than a week to go work on an important archaeological excavation. I will be joining a crew who have been working 12 hour days, 6-7 days a week. Staying in a motel room (no roomie) and since I'll be there until the end of Nov...I'll be bringing along some things from home to decorate my room. Maybe even some photos of Gordon and the band . And I'll bring my guitar along of course.


To everyone planning on the upcoming concerts....have a great time and I'll look forward to reading up on reviews!!!

All my best,
Pam

Hi Pammie,

Does this mean I won't be getting those wonderful test messages before my last 5 concerts of this year?

I hope you have a wonderful time. Since you are already used to hard work, I will just say they are lucky to have you. Be well and know that I am thinking of you and missing your posts.

Good luck & have fun. Have you looked into getting a refurbished laptop ? You can usually get a basic model fairly cheaply. And even Motel 6 has internet connectivity these days either hardwired or wifi. Just a thought but whatever, enjoy your time away !

That sounds like fun/hard work. Have a good time. I wish I could go with you. Don't try to do too much too fast, now, it has been ten years, so don't you be getting any injuries. Hope you find something good. And have a nice time at the next open mic too.

...old toothbrushes, toothpicks, Q-tips, snakebite kit and a case of Tim Horton's bottled water....that the manager was nice enough to sell to me at almost cost (about .55/bottle). Looks like I head out on the 19th...OSHA training on the 20th.

Take care Pam, and good luck in your endeavors!
I, too, will be starting a new gig on Monday.
Do consider BILLW's post from 10-9! It's certainly doable.

It would be nice if they would let you tell who it is that you'll be helping them "dig up dirt" on. Take care & lots of luck.

Looks like you kids are stuck with me for a little while longer!!! I'm not heading out until a week from Wednsday !!! I'm a bit antsy and filled up this week with everything I need to do to get done. So now I'm having to plan on something to fill the 3 extra days next week!!!Gee...I could have gone to California for 5 days hehe.

Well that's ok I keep finding things to pack and other things I can do, places to go. Wish I could travel more lightly, but I need to bring stuff to make meals too. Important small appliances like my beloved air popcorn popper and coffee maker . So more time now means I'll find more things to bring!! But I already decided to keep it down to one bin and one suitcase (and my guitar).

Oh and I will have a laptop -my friend is giving me her old one . I have to go to Massachusetts to get it and didn't think I'd have the time -now I do. It may need a little updating though.

ok...I'll be around here

Just a quick hello..I arrived at my hotel an hour ago and it's beautiful, sunny and mild weather in OH. Nice drive out here...relatively easy. Good music for traveling -GG II and Harmony...but mostly I was a Rach-head. I LOVE Rachmaninoff's greatest -NY Phil w/Bernstein is the best .

ok well I have my bathingsuit on and where the PC is here is overlooking the hot tub and pool and I can't wait a minute longer! SPLASH!!!! woooohOOOO

Hi Pam,
Glad you made it to Ohio safe and sound.

I think you are in for a lot of hard work but I hope you can have some fun and good times mixed in there somewhere.

Aren't there any good looking, Indiana Jones type guys diggin' along side you on the treasure hunt?
Or is that just in the movies?

Hey, good luck to you. Keep in touch when you can,
