And currently I'm in post Thanksgiving food coma.
That was what I wrote last month.
I assume due to the food coma.
It is true that the Canadian shows are done.
And there is nothing on the horizon for the time being.
The often talked about US tour has been put on hold.
I had gigs lined up from Washington to Texas, but had to cancel them.
There has been some troubles leading up to that tour that was really going to make it difficult to next to impossible for an early January start time.
Our RV has been eating up cash.
We've had to throw more money into than expected. (and are waiting to throw even more money into it... or sell it. Whatever happens first)
Our side business that has helped fund the tour www.thecanadiancomicbin.com, which does a lot of business through eBay, was almost stopped as eBay began holding all our funds for 21 days.
Creating lots of cancellations and extra work for me for about 6 weeks.
Our beloved dog Trail has been getting worse in his old age.
He just turned 16!
A vet told us he would be surprised if he lasted the winter.
Neither of us wants to be mid-tour and have him pass away or have to be put down.
And the cherry on top of this dismal Sundae...
My guitar was stolen the night after the last show in Vancouver.
I've had that guitar for about 9 years it was cracked, stained, bled on sweat on, and the sound hole had worn away to a nice dangerously sharp edge. I thought I would have it forever. Seems like the British Columbian Gods (or some random asshole) thought I needed to do away with my beloved piece of musical wood.
I also had 3 new songs written which were in the case that I'm not so sure I can recreate.
That still pangs the heart.
So here we are in BC transferring our beastly bus/house from Langley, White Rock and Mayne Island parking it in front of various members of Gina's relatives places of residence.
Recently the generator stopped connecting to our heater so we only get heat if it's plugged in.
The tiny bird Sparrow gets mighty cold in the evenings.
Gina's Sister, Kendra, did start a gofundme campaign for my missing guitar which was pretty amazing because people donated $895 for me to get a new music maker! Friends, family and people I didn't even know.
This weekend when we head to Victoria, I'l be checking out some music stores to see if anything calls out to me.
If anyone else wants to help out, I've got the new Neil Crowe tank tops available from the www.neilcrowe.com site they are $25.00 and will come with a demo CD of the new single, Weight of the World. Just head HERE.
So we'll be laying low for the time being.
Here are some photos from the past while.
Since, it's obvious I ill not be regaling you all with a descriptive tale of the tour.
I'll write at sometime in the future.
Sparrow's new job
I was asked to play a song. within a minute the owner set up his sound equipment around me.
Then we head just outside the Brewery and make diner.
Cod tongues. greasy and chewy
Party in the RV in Yarmouth
We stumbled on a few breweries that just opened this is one of them. Breton Brewing,
Quidi Vidi Brewery. We were not allowed samples.
One of the finest piece of chocolate ever made.
Something happened to some dudes bike.
Some random fellow gave me seal meat and blueberry wine. He sent it back to the bar via taxi after he left.
Cool idea hit all the breweries, distilleries and vineyards in Nova Scotia.
We only got 10
Trail in the bar!
Unfiltered just opened!
Gynasaur begins her drum career
Yes, Steve Earle was just sitting behind me.
This drink was requested. It's rimmed with used coffee grinds.
This is the dude who ordered then drank the grossest drink I've ever seen.
Best burgers I've ever made!
