About the gig last Friday night: I was fabulous. When I could remember the tune. Otherwise, we (you know, me and Lloyd) stood around lookin’ fetching, tapping our toes and smiling. The band is called Harmony Roads, by the way.

El Boyero, the bar/restaurant is pretty nice, big, open, pretty good acoustics. Most of the customers were tico and they LOVE old rock music. I had no idea! We had a few requests: The Eagles’ Hotel California, anything by Axl Rose…
