It's all good

Good morning friends.. back to the grind after a whirl wind day... Yesterday was fantastic.. all about the food and the music.. not going to lie.. didn't care what I ate, just thoroughly enjoyed everything I ate.. Late breakfast a biscuit love.. a biscuit with sausage gravy, kale salad and a side of bacon with this lovely herbal tea and a bloody mary. Lunch was an ice cream cone, mixed chocolate raspberry truffle and white chocolate raspberry cheesecake and dinner was a cheese burger with fries and an angry orchard.. How many points you ask? All of them I say... all of them.
We walked a lot, just shy of 21K steps... we just wandered around, checked out the different bars and musicians during the day then headed to they Ryman Auditorium at night.. It was a day filled with a lot of old school country. The one bar had a singer that nailed George Jones and when he asked for requests and I said Johnny Cash he hit us with Tennessee Flat top box.. usually when you request Johnny Cash they do one of the standards.. I was rather excited when he started plucking his bass to this one.. my GF looked at me like I had 3 heads when she realized i actually knew the song and liked it.
The benefit concert was fabulous. We had first row seats, it was a fantastic line up.. Lonestar, Jamie O'Neal, Jeffrey Steele, Craig Weisman, Phil Vassar.. and once again, kicking it old school.. past beloved hits with some Christmas music thrown in all for a great cause, Christmas for Kids.. Phil has taken over this long standing tradition from Charlie Daniels..
Got some great photos of the band, took a picture with Richie from Lonestar and another "formal" picture with Phil at the meet and greet afterwards.
It was a fantastic day from start to finish.. My head hit the pillow and I got about 4 1/2 hours of sleep before the flight home this am.. bumped up to first class.. so that was nice..
Got back to my desk and rolled up my sleeves and began to work.. took a few moments on my lunch break to gather my thoughts.. and now back to it again.. Have a great day..
