I had a visit from my beautiful cousin Maria Lee which lasted two days. It was supposed to last longer, as before she came here she had said that she would immediately seek housing in the area and knew she could not stay long with me, but she got upset that I wouldn’t let her stay longer so she left the area. I hope she gets what she is looking for. I believe in her, but she does not yet; she still is looking for the perfect person to fix everything. I believe she is that person, but she will have to learn how to make herself that and it’s hard work.

Emmie and I played a gig at a local wine-tasting party. There is a chance that the ladies who attended or threw this party might get us further gigs in the local area. We both did well and had a blast, got really good tips.

My next known gig is ConCarolinas in early June.
