For inquiring minds:
The month of Jan has been ridiculously cold here in Alabama. We had to move Riverbank Productions in the midst of the winter storm. I had a busted hand from slamming it into one of the sliding doors making carrying things and playing the guitar more difficult.
We got everything moved into a farm house across the creek from the store. Its pretty lovely, or at least it will be. We have lots of room there, as its sprawled across a 3 acre lot. There’s a place for my rabbits and soon-to-have chickens. The boys want a fainting goat, so if you have one, I’m in the market.
When we turned the water on, the older farm house apparently wasn’t kept up and several water pipes were already broken. Turned the water off, and a few more froze then busted.
As expected though, the Buck’s Pocket State Park ATV trail is still a go and apparently, the state signed the check. I chose to close the store January for the relocation of the studio, and to save on heating costs. While I was at it, I went ahead and started the recording process on the first three songs of my Native Americana album. Y’all haven’t seen or heard these beauts.
I took the time to go over store expenses as well and rearrange some things. Had to start the process of getting my taxes filed. So, all in all, it was a good month with a few little bumps in the road, none of which I’ll let slow me down too long. I’m so used to driving these Alabama roads with pot holes, I reckon I’ve come to expect such.
I told my Daddy I’d help him install an elevator in his shop, come Spring, so I’d like to get some of these projects handled by then. In the meantime, I’ll be restocking the shelves here at the Store and playing with art and music. Don’t worry about me too much. I got a few good friends that’s got my back out here in this wilderness.
