A Risky Business

Relying on music for a substantial part of your income can be a precarious business.
Last night City Limits played at Mad Hatters in Inverness. The venue is small, so both the crowd and the fee were modest, but we had a good time. Tonight we were due to play at Brockies Bar in Kiltarlity to a bigger crowd and for a bigger fee. It was not to be.
This morning, after a kitchen knife-related incident, guitarist Keith rushed himself to casualty where his left thumb was stitched back together. Hurried calls were made and a stand-in band found. Lucky them.
Fortunately we’ve no gigs next weekend and Keith should recover in time for the wedding we’re playing the following Saturday. That’s proper money so we won’t want to give it away.
The silver lining for me is that, after an afternoon with my leg up, and a similar evening to come, I may finally be fit for a short run tomorrow, just before the forecast Siberian wind and snow arrives, Fingers crossed.
