MUSICIANS: TWO New Gig Venues To Check Out AND I Don't Kiss Like A Banana Slug!

Photo by by Jim Whitehead cc..banana slug
ATTENTION all great musicians ....In our area there's TWO great music venues to check out, that's THE SPIRAL CAFE, ARTS and WELL BEINGNESS CENTER in Yelm and THE HIDDEN RIVER INN in Rainier. Cool places...each one.
BARTLETT ON BASS will be performing at each one in the next couple of weeks with that fantastic band he's in with his music buddies..Jon, Scott and Tod.
Since, I have some problems lately with mobility, don't worry it's just temporary...I haven't been at the gigs...BUMMER. [T. Jan]. But, I have a great idea, I'll tell later AND, remember, I don't kiss like a banana slug, explanation to follow.
Steve tells me everything that gos on at his gigs...so, I can report it here. He says THE SPIRAL CAFE is just beautiful, with a fantastic stage, dance floor and fun, it's open for many cultural events. THE HIDDEN RIVER INN has so many great things posted about it online..a fine Restaurant plus  theatre area that can hold up to 500 guests for music events....cool. It's in a wildlife santurary too.
So,....I want to get to ALL of my hubby's gigs, even if I do it creatively...OK? So here's my new idea...if a venue is difficult for me to get to I can be carried on one of those liter-things, you know what I mean, like Cleopatra...I like those big feather fans too...it'll be fun you guys.... really. Just sit me down by that cool bassman with his beautiful smile, and let me hear the music..OK? That's all, I'll be in Bartlett heaven.
This is where that banana slug story begins...that beautiful smile.
Steve and I have been together since Nov. 1995...we use to do everything together...after all, we're best friends that's all. I was at every gig and rehearsal too. I even went up north to his day-job with him when I could walk, using only a cane.
One time, Steve was working in Federal Way...no, it was Kent. We camped out each night at a State Park nearby. Since we hadn't packed a tent we just put our sleeping bag on the ground and had no tent. 
One morning...Steve was smiling THAT smile, and grinning ear to ear, as we got up for coffee.
"What's up Steve?"...this is what he said. During the night, he woke up...thinking I was kissing him, and he was telling me this was NOT the time or place, he's a shy guy....that's when, he heard my snoring beside him. WHAT???
He reached up to pull a HUGH Banana Slug off his lips , and flung it into the forest...I just kept snoring peacefully the whole night. I don't kiss like a banana slug you guys AND, snore very dantily too,.THE END. T. Jan
