The jam session
14 May 11
Last night we joined a diverse group of people in a jam session. David and I don’t play instruments, but we appreciate fine music, and in a little farm house well off the main road, we heard a variety of good tunes.
David had worked with Tony and Nathan earlier in the day — helping construct a second house on Tony’s property. Tony is an experienced builder, and is using conventional materials (mostly timber) in his construction.
The night turned into a well-tuned karaoke session, with old favourites being played and sung. When we needed a break, David, our friend Tracey and I retreated into the front of our truck and watched a movie on our laptop. It was a lovely way to finish the evening.
After the movie, David and I said good-night and moved into our bed in the back of the truck. All four girls had been sleeping soundly — even with the music cranking outside the window, and we enjoyed a good night’s sleep until the chooks woke us up in the morning.
