Out with June; in tune with July
Hey Y'all! Welcome to We Trot About, the last day of June edition!

Well let's see, what have we been up to? I can't even keep up anymore. I hate getting behind. We spent a lot quality time at the local beaches in Fernandina and GTM. Our pal Jan came up from Boca and spent a weekend with her that was super fun.
I shaved off the beard & mustache which was a big change. I haven't been bare faced in ages!
No, just kidding, I got rid of the Teddy Roosevelt. I started a new job and it's going well. Working hard but that's actually a good thing. Filling up the coffers is highly desirable. Also it has afforded me time to do something I love but rarely make time for and that is listen to music! Alas it is cutting into my late night writing & recording sessions. Still doing some gigs here and there.
Speaking of music we had the Jacksonville Jazz fest where we saw Dr John and McCoy Tyner on Friday night, and Nathan East and the Dizzie Gillespie experience on Saturday. I love the awesome totally free concerts here in Jax. Three main stages, all class acts. Did I mention free?
We had a lovely celebration at the rooftop bar of the black sheep restaurant for the prettiest wifeypoo's birthday. On Memorial day we bicycled down to memorial park had a lovely French style picnic by the river with red wine, baguette, salami & pepperoni, brie & chevre. I dunno where the pix of that all went.
There was a Prince tribute in Hemming park with lots of great bands doing all Prince covers. It was a great time. Too bad he's gone so soon and seemingly so needlessly. We also saw Chvrches & Death Cab For Cutie at St Augustine and it was awesome!
The big news is we are negotiating the purchase of a house now, so it looks like we're starting yet another new chapter in The Adventures Of LuAnn And Andy. We'll also be visiting the kids soon in LA so we're on the road again too. Guess y'all will be invited to the housewarming party!
