  1. Great show. Good crowd. Superlative hospitality from Ledge and his fine family.

    The evening started a little rough as the house sound guy struggled to find and connect enough good cables for the onslaught, but once Kevin's monitor got going(shove it in and twist, I believe, is what licked it) things got rolling. There was another act on after the Gourds, which I think cut short the encores.

    Thanks, Ledge, for taking such fine care of the visiting cucurbs. Great to have met you. And real nice to have met the cucurbs up from Kentucky who's names escape me. There's a pattern here -- must have been the hospitality what wiped my slate clean . . .
