Room 231. Had just plopped our bags down when Martin rang the room inquiring if we were ready for beer.
We're in the lobby with our drinking shoes on.

One lovely lost wander back after consuming a few at a second venue, Atlas Brewing Company.
Great to again enjoy the company of some of the greats.
A delight to meet Frank.

Breakfast tomorrow, and we make our way to the architectural boat tour.

I'm sitting in the Nashville airport awaiting my flight to Chicago. I should be at the hotel before 5 p.m.
so I'll be available for dinner plans. It turns out my brother's band is playing at Tootsie's. for those that haven't been to Nashville, it is across the alley from the Ryman Auditorium and artists used to go to Tootsie's to jam after their show. So it has seen a lot of action over the years.

1. Will we be exchanging CDs?

2. If yes, how many?
Now, I’m liberal, but to a degree
I want everybody to be free
But if you think that I’ll let Rick Santorum
Move in next door and marry my son
You must think I’m crazy!

But somehow when you smile, I can brave bad weather.

I have finally arrived. Due to traffic, it took as long to get to the hotel as it did to fly from Nashville.
Crazy days. I'm going to unpack and get situated but I'll be ready for dinner. No lunch today except for a smoothie so I'll be ready to eat any time.

I'm in 337 btw. See you soon!

I'd like to go to Chess Studios while I'm here. It is now called Willie Dixon's Blues Heaven as a tribute to him but the studio and office are available for a tour. They are only open from 12 - 3 today and normally 11 - 4 M to F but not sure if they'll be open on Monday since it is a holiday. One would think it would be but a phone call will sort that out. The website said there was a Who photo exhibit presently. Michael, Frank and I spoke of going one day. Is anyone else interested? Also FYI, it is closed on Sunday so today and possibly Monday are the days I can make it as I leave Tuesday a.m.

Sent you a text message, but "yes,yes, yes please" is my answer if someone would keep me in the loop.

FYI My phone doesn't accept texts (old fart alert). I'm glad you made it despite the lack of communication.

Plenty of pictures on the Facebook. Any chance of getting them here?

Likely to be installed once people are back home and no longer in the thick of the wonder of the JUotA reboot of 2015.

Longlegs and I, still enjoying our evening, find ourselves wondering if we're the last man standing tonight. We sat out on the benches on returning to Days Inn territory. Still imbibing. Finally back in our rooms at 1 am, but not done.

Seventeen, I believe.

We had a room to ourselves in which to be boisterous and somewhat contained.

There was chalkboard along two walls. So at various times, BCBers could be seen contributing on those walls.
So us, drunk and posting crap.
