TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17TH – UNTERMEITINGEN, GERMANY – AS TOLD BY DAVID BELLAMY:
Last night Howard and I had a fantastic “birthday” dinner with Bill and Marianne and their friends. It was really great. We’ll have to get him to take us back out there sometime. It’s a farm/hotel/restaurant, really close by Bill’s club. Would love to stay there next time we perform here as it looks like it also has good internet! The internet in our hotel is not working tonight. Judy would have gone kamikaze! 🙂
Got up this morning and took a walk ‘cause it looked like it was going to be good weather….NOT!!! It started raining on me about half way through my walk and I ducked into a little grocery store for mangos, cheese and water. I ran into Bill and Frank in the lobby after I finally got a break in the weather and ran back to hotel. Bill had the internet moved to the fourth floor. Everybody had lots of emailing to do so now everybody sits around outside my door on the fourth floor because WIFI is the strongest there.
It rained and blew almost all day so nobody went out much. I caught up on my work and checked on Susan and the Kids. Bill and Wally brought a very large Styrofoam chest to my room about 6pm with plates full of Weiner Schnitzel, Fries and Salads. I took some and slid the chest over to Howard’s room with the remaining food. I left him complaining that it took up his whole room.
The show went good, great audience and sound seemed better than last time we played. We had a microphone snafu on the lead vocal mics before the show so we were delayed about 15 minutes but everybody seemed very happy by the end of the show. We blamed it on Bill and told him he had done it intentionally to sell more beer. 😉
We had talked about going to Augsburg for lunch but it’s really rainy and windy again today so looks like we’ll be repeating yesterday’s pattern.
