kayAs I sit here on a trunk near to Sabrina, she's a little restless as we are leaving our favorite city. I'm chatting with her and trying to think back over the last two days, it's just before 1am and I've been awake about 18hrs, am I comfortable? I've definetly had worse spots in the last 20 years of traveling all over the world with my best friends.


I think Corny and Saby read my blog too on Friday, my thoughts on their first day performances seemed to pull their socks up for Saturday.


After having a splendid time at the fair with Reed and Mimi the night before, my alarm was a little un-welcoming, but the day can only begin by getting out if bed!
