Our intention was to combine a welcome visit to the country with an opportunity to cut a couple of tunes in Carlo's studio in what used to be a garage next to the house, but the water heater replacement activity takes all afternoon and well into the evening, so once the heat is on and the water is flowing we all relax and enjoy a blissful evening of doing nothing.
Sunday morning brings another vast problem when there's no running water and a broken water pump is found to be the cause. There's no relief because it's the Sunday morning of Mardi Gras weekend and nothing can be done until tomorrow. By the time that conclusion is reached, however, it's time for Dorothy and me to go back across the lake and get ready for Indian practice. We'll have to do the long-awaited Orleans Records recording project the next time around. Right now it's Mardi Gras Time...time to get out in the streets and play!
