Thursday – I called up Ron Anthony to see if he wanted to get away from his home restoration and play at the Buttonwood and Pine Loft on Thursday night. Opening night with Bob at the Buttonwood brought out Kent, Stan and some other folks, so we passed it around. I had the contact of the Buttonwood fall into my hands, so I’ll see if I can scuffle up a gig there. Seems to be a movement towards more folk there.

Off we went to the Pine Loft near New Britain for the later stages of their regular Thursday night open mike. Nice tour…. Good folks and a friendly group of players, and food, too.
