Unbelievable day today! Wow, the life of the jolly one is incredible.
Cooked for the hero staying with us. Fired up the wood grill, using mesquite wood and oak charcoal (no petroleum for the Bigjolly). Threw on 3-16 oz+ bone in sirloin steaks as well as a chicken breast for SU. Wrapped 4 very large potatoes with with a slice of bacon, then wrapped them in aluminum foil and baked ’em for a couple of hours. Used my new jalapeÃ±o cooker purchased on the Canton trip to make up some appetizers. Took 10 large japs, cored ’em, filled ’em with a mixture of sausage and cheeses, wrapped ’em with a half slice of bacon and popped ’em in the oven for an hour. Not bad for a first try but I think an hour is too long, they weren’t very spicy hot. But still a very, very good meal. Hero or not.
How the heck could I top that? Well, by listening to live music! Yes, indeed the Chantilly room happens to be just a few blocks from my trailer (doublewide). This place is set up to be a classic live music joint but rarely has good bands. Well, tonight was way, way out of character. The had a band called Shannon and Lance G and they ripped the place apart! Wow! Oh my. I thought they had a chance to thrill me when I saw that Mark May produced and played on their CD but man, was I surprised. They have one of the best horn players I’ve heard in a long time and I hear a lot of them. Guy named Cameron Scott. Dude can flat out play. And they were tight, I mean Rush tight. So tight I didn’t like the first set all that much, just enjoyed the way they were playing. But the second set, whoa, I don’t know what they did during the break but afterwards, it was full scale on. How the heck could a band out of Tomball play like this? Highly, highly recommended!
Still pumped but I’ve gotta get up early, drop the hero and 1 off at the airport, then boogie up to Austin to see 2’s belt test. Some type of martial art, not sure which, just don’t call it karate! Late.
