Post-Op Gig 1 - Missoula, Montana

Not bad for exactly a week after shoulder surgery! (3 incisions plus laparoscopic tools.) Even musicians in Montana are a tougher breed.

On Monday morning, The Best Husband Ever had his first physical therapy appointment. He informed Physical Therapist #1, "I have gigs on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, that were all booked way before this surgery. And I have band practices Wednesday and Saturday. People are counting on me." 

PT#1 said, "You frighten me a little."

On Wednesday morning, Physical Therapist #2 had no comment.

I have to say, TBHE brings whole new meaning to the phrase, "Rock on!"
Tonight is Post-Op Gig 2 - if you're in town, stop by the Sunrise Saloon for a do-si-do and say hello!

Leafy Greens - Missoula, Montana

"No white nor red was ever seen 
So am’rous as this lovely green....
Annihilating all that’s made 
To a green thought in a green shade..."

Market Melon - Missoula, Montana, Via Dixon, Montana

'Tis the Montana melon season once again! 
For dibs on the best watermelon - or any of several other unique melon varieties - you've ever tasted, plan to be in line early at the Dixon Melon truck at a Farmer's Market near you. 
(Or near me, anyway. Which just means you need to come to visit.)

Brush Up - Missoula, Montana

"When I say artist I mean the man who is building things - creating, molding the earth - whether it be the plains of the west - or the iron ore of Penn. It's all a big game of construction - some with a brush - some with a shovel - some choose a pen."

- Jackson Pollock (1912-1956)
