Las Vegas, Nevada

I really pushed it today! I play hard and strong for an hour and a half at the local stagehand union while they gave away food to members. Most people had come and gone but that did not stop me on this beautiful day. My friend Dave Huff stopped by and played a little piano and sang. He is a terrific performer! Afterwards, I was able to get a major amount of groceries for the homeless but... have no where to store the food so I called my friends Eric and Mary and asked if they could help. of course they did. And... this is a major food preparation, cook situation because it was all groceries. You can see from the truck load it is totally full. What a haul! Butter, cream cheese, bagels, loaves of bread, bacon, sausage, bisquick mix and syrup, eggs, cheese, granola, popcorn, soups, beans, sauces, mac and cheese, pop tarts, oranges, potatoes, carrots, rice, lots... lots... more. My friends are going to help me with it all. Tomorrow we will start with making egg salad sandwiches, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (need to use up the bread) bagels and cream cheese and with all that I'll go out with oranges, water, I still have a few blankets to give out... Before the sun set I wanted to get a picture of it all so Eric helped me sort the food from boxes and place it all in the truck for a quick photo. With the sun setting I had to work at a maniac pace but we got it all done and repacked and into Eric's garage. A major amount of work but I love it, just hope I'm alive tomorrow and can still move my body from all the energy and activity.
