Another windy and cool morning. It’s 62 with 16 mile an hour winds. Today its going to be a high of 71 with 15-20 mph winds. John did his bike ride and then we headed to Key West.
Today is the Richard Crooks second line march parade. It’s to think about and honor fellow musicians, friends and family that have passed away. It’s like a New Orleans funeral parade. It starts at Hogs Breath and ends at the Green Parrot. Larry Baeder a local blues musician is the emcee and Mick Kilgos is the Grand Marshall.
Sally and I are celebrating our birthday weekend. She has her tambourine with drum sticks, I have my ukulele and she gave John a plastic flute. We met Bill, Ruth, Jean, Trombone Dave, Judy, and Joe at Hogs Breath. There were lots of musician friends there also.
The parade started and marched down Duval and ended in the street at the Green Parrot. We went next door for a couple cocktail and the to the parrot to see Larry Baeder and Bill Blue. AWESOME!! Pete and Tina were there too. Now we moseyed over to see Yo Adrian at Ricks. Great day!!!
