May 13th St Marys, KS 60 miles. Grass. Warm, rain likely. Good pre-sale. Show is playing just beyond the suburban Topeka communities today and tomorrow (Carbondale, KS 50 miles.) Very good business yesterday in Seneca. Brian Franzen stopped by the show to visit on his way to Plunkett dates with his cats and elephants in Nebraska.

Blog is going on hiatus for a week or ten days. When Shane Johnson was forced off the show I gave my notice. There’s not a single person on Culpepper & Merriweather whom I don’t like. However, on a very small show with 25 people sometimes the dynamic is more like that of a large family with all of the bickering you might expect between parents and grandparents and children. . Maybe for me, as it stands right now, as it’s operated right now, this show is just a little too small. After a third of the season the show is financially strong. I’d rather leave on a high note.

I’m going home to California for a bit. In a few weeks, with any luck, maybe I’ll be back in the mud again elsewhere. I’ll post the details when they’re worked out.

CM Schedule for the remainder of this week.

Carbondale KS 50 miles
