I'm looking forward to this Friday because of the Jethro Tull concert at Edgefield. This season at Edgefield has been sadly lacking in Classic Rock artists, and after the past few seasons I've gotten pretty spoiled going to the venue. It's been years since I saw a full on Jethro Tull show so that's good too. I saw Ian Anderson's show at the Schnitzer with the Oregon Symphony last year, and it was really good. Ian Anderson is such an intelligent man and I'm so lucky to have interviewed him a couple of times. Here's a link (I think...they keep changing things on our website so who really knows) to the podcast interview.
Mostly I just like to go to Edgefield. I love the venue. I love the art. I love the food. So this year, one show for me, so I'm looking forward to this Friday.
I'm also planning my night of Rush at the Sleep Country Amphitheater, which I also adore because my friend Keevin works there and always takes care of me. I plan on making it to the Doobie Brothers and War show there as well.
After that, it's a crapshoot. I go in for surgery....again....on July 13th, so there's massive recovery time and if summer ever arrives for a long stay, I'll be enjoying my deck at home. Maybe. The deck that we built 15 years ago is sadly slumping with rotting beams. We've had 2 guys come out and look at it, none of which have returned with bids. I'm losing hope for my backyard recovery.
Oh well, I'll enjoy what I can before I go under the knife again. If I don't get fixed this time, I'm just giving myself up for scientific experiments like in Monty Python's "The Meaning of Life." Just don't ask for my liver.
I will see you at the Rush show. Doubt if we'll be lucky enough to see a live flying white owl up in the rafters like a few years ago.
Good luck on your surgery, and may you be permanently good to go afterwards, and able to make more concerts.
Thanks Heather! Looking forward to seeing Rush with my family and friends! Maybe there will be an owl hanging out....just for us!
