Hey family. I hope all is well with everyone. There is really nothing to report here, besides plans. Nothing has been happening this month besides cursing at the weather. Work is slow.
I'm headin back to school this fall, this time i'm not stopping until i have a degree in hand. I don't care what it takes... I'm gonna be paying off loans anyway I might as well have something to show for it. I'm gonna go after an International Studies degree... which is basically a geography degree, but a lot more broad and potentially useful if I don't want to teach or work for the government.
Music stuff is going good. I'm heading to Austin with my pal Ringo in March for a few days. He'll be recording songs for his band's album and I will be doing some guest vocals and guest mandolin a couple of tracks. Should be fun. My band is playing tomorrow night in Lincoln, and we have a few more shows tentatively lined up for the next few months. Maybe this summer we'll be able to get a two week midwest tour lined up. That's the hope. We recorded in November and should have some CDs out in the next couple of months.
Ringo lives in Ames, Iowa with his wife. They live near a river so when it gets warm out we're planning a nice long, relaxing, drunken canoe trip. When it gets warm, if it ever happens...
Our lease is up in March, and we're all probably going to go separate ways. My hope is to find a little tiny one bedroom house near downtown here in Lincoln. Somewhere where I can get a nice dog and have some garden space.
Anyways, like I said, thats not really news, just stuff that might happen if I survive the winter. Its been brutal. I can feel myself aging every day.
Take care all. Uncle Chris, behave yourself ok?
