Day 166 - Nov 3 & 4 - Day Off and Detroit Auburn Hills

I like to think of it as charitable gifting into the unknown, accidental altruism, the natural osmosis of items from a higher density (in my possession) to a lower density (worldly elsewhere's). Everyone else calls it 'losing things.' Like any skill, some people are naturally gifted in such a way to be better at it than others. I can proudly say that I happen to be quite talented in this particular art form and I am a master 'misplace-ist.' Losing passports, video cameras, back packs and my car every time I park it anywhere but my driveway are all merely mundane accomplishments that don't even phase me. 

This time it is something new, I am excited to say and perhaps a few of you were wondering as I know a certain Jane Doe was, "What happened to Detroit?" Aha, I have lost an entire city not to mention the day off preceding. Where did it go? Was it stolen? Maybe in one of my bags? Nope, I have looked everywhere and can honestly say it is gone. Just like losing a laptop but still having the power supply all I have left are a few snapshots to offer. So here goes:

The hotel bar doubles as a roadie magnet like a watering hole in the sahara:

And since we are nearing the end of the second quarter this impromptu shot can also double as the midterm test. There are 6 touring roadies shown plus another identifiable human.

Name 3 = C

Name 4 = B

Name 5 =A-

Name 6=A+

Name 7=A+ and you get a free Rat Sticker if you come find me at a gig!

Remember to use a #2 pencil and this test will be timed and yes, calculators are allowed.

The 'if we can't laugh at ourselves it just leaves us grumpy,'
