Thank you!!!  Yes, I'm getting a good start - I am currently in Austin, Texas and will be seeing Ponderosa tomorrow night (I saw them open for Mofro in Atlanta for the filming of the DVD and have seen them a couple of times since) and will also see the Greyhounds at the Continental Club on Wednesday

Then I'm off to see Mofro again next Friday and Saturday.  I have to say... this traveling is getting to me a bit (not quite as resilient as I thought ) but the awesome music and great friends along the way are SO worth it!!!

Lots of great things to say about this show.  It was outside at a beautiful venue (I wish I had taken pictures of the view!) and the weather was perfect.  This was a free show and one in which you are allowed to bring your own coolers  There ended up being a great turnout later in the evening with lots of new Mofro fans.

All the guys were hanging out before the show - and while the other bands played - everyone except Art.  Didn't see much of him and he seemed exceptionally quiet last night.  Hope everything is OK with him.  Actually, all the guys were a little quieter than normal last night.  Maybe they were tired?  Trube, Dennis, and Art all "did their thing" as always - they just didn't seem all that into it.  

JJ forgot his harmonica(s) so some guy let him borrow one that he had gotten from the Cracker Barrel.  He used it during Lochloosa and it sounded fine .

I took lots of pictures, but none of them turned out all that great.  They all start looking the same, and it doesn't help when JJ keeps wearing the same shirt They all had on their standard wardrobe - maybe one day they'll surprise me and come out in matching sequined thongs  

Sage and Simone were there - and even Sam.  Sage played with the granddaughter of some friends of mine, and all the kids seemed like they were having a good time.  All in all, it was a great show - as always!

Got some disappointing news for ya BH. I don't know why but their set was cut short. There were 2 songs left on the setlist...Sun is Shining Down, and On Fire. I just got this a.m. and looked. Ending with Sweetest Thing seemed kinda unusual, now I guess we know why.

Sounds like a great festival grounds! Nice to hear lots of people were there to see the guys. You know sometimes I wonder if it's not harder for the guys to gear up for 2 days after a week off and then having another week off an then 2 days and then off some more. Seems like the more they're on the road the more they cut loose. Or like you said, maybe their just tired! I can't imagine keeping up with their schedule. What am I talking about...I can't imagine keeping up with Bad Habit's schedule!!!

I can't believe JJ forgot his harmonicas! Didn't he do that sometime last year somewhere? A Cracker Barrel harp. You gotta love it.

Very cool Sage and Simone came along. And who is Sam?

Yeah, I got the set list and saw that there was some stuff missing - wasn't too surprised as they don't always follow the list.  I even wondered if they did only one song for the encore because of crowd response or lack thereof.  I also wondered if they didn't do Sun because crowd wasn't always quiet at the right times.  Crowd wasn't terrible at all - just wondering.

Sam is his son.  Or least that's what I thought his name was.  I had been drinking just a little by then (read just a lot) so I could be mistaken.  Heck, for all I know it wasn't even his son

Ah...you mean Romy. About 22-ish, 5'9-ish, muscles out to here, 28 inch waist and 38 inch chest. Dreads. Wearing a wife-beater? If so that's Romy (short for Romair, if I spelt it right.) Really, really, really nice guy. He's so totally into his little sister it's really cute. He dotes on her like you wouldn't believe.

Hmm...  definitely no dreads.  I wondered if he had a daughter of his own or is dating someone who does.  There was another cute little youngin' running around playing with them.  Just being nosy.
