    Offer to play in Big Band.

    Can't give the name of the band just yet, but I just received an offer to play drums for a Big Band. And I mean, A BIG BAND!
    Now, it means giving up my two jobs and going on the road. Hmmmm. Can I leave the wife and kids home?

    hmmmm,never thought ... naw, the band....maybe, I don't know...
    Seriously, my wife said they called again this morning. She's all for it as long as it equates or surpasses my salary now. (Fat Chance of that). To be perfectly honest with you, I wouldn't mind a little time away from this school. Maybe get my sanity back and have fun playing drums again. We shall see if I move to Vegas or not.

    Hmmmm, nope it’s his brother , Fig Newton!
    Won't say until I know for sure.
    I can say they've been around for quite some time and were tops in the 40's.
    Maybe I spoke too soon. That usually jinxes the outcome. Regardless, I still have to agree upon the audition. As long as Simon isn't there I should be alright.

    Enough said.

    Hey Styxx, ol' buddy,
    How long will this gig last? Will you be able to take your family with you?
