It is pretty darn boiling out today and I just want to stay out of the heat until the sunshine goes down.
My fine friend and I have been playing tunes in the bars about five mornings a week and have been making a fine amount of money.
They pay us $150 to do the show and then on top of that my buddy and I get another $100 in tips, so my buddy and I are making like $600 a week each just playing tunes. That isn’t a ton of money in the real world, but in tunes land that is called a fine living. It beats the local company where I used to labor selling produce, which was genuinely strenuous to do considering they had no cooling system during the hot summers. In the wintertime it was strenuous working in the place because they didn’t use heat at all, as the fruits and veggies wouldn’t last as long, and now I get to play tunes in air conditioned and heated clubs during the summers and winters, and make a lot of really cool memories in the process. I guess that is what life is in the end isn’t it, just a bunch of memories. I still pop into the air conditioning company to see my aged Heating, Ventilation and A/C worker friends and hang out for a bit, but doing so multiple shows keeps me pretty busy during the year. I hope that I can keep playing tunes for another twenty years and make it to 75 years aged while still playing in clubs like the young lad that I used to be.
