Bike! Azalea! Todd! 4.10.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 11:43 am  

Had a late night on Wednesday watching Todd Rundgren! Catching up on admin duties Thursday morning!

Brain Training to start off my morning.

Then EspaƱol!

Sent out a mass email to the Youth Directors who worked with us.

Went to record, but instead spent time coming up with new titles for podcasts! Part of the work!

Then deposited checks.

They trimmed branches in my yard. It’s to keep branches from bringing down power lines during ice storms. Which we didn’t have any of last winter. AMEN!

Glad they didn’t hurt any of my plants!

Went for a 13.81 mile bike ride. Glorious outside!

While riding, I practice my scripture and poetry. I now have over a hour of material completely memorized. That seems like a lot. And it also seems to be getting easier to commit things to memory. Just learned a big chunk from Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.

Listened to Spanish radio on the ride into Chamblee.

Tried to call my Mom. Keep missing her. Bahd luck.

Helped the kids at the mission. And always enjoy the Grandgirls! What a blast of oxytocin they are!

One of the kids at the mission brought ice cream treats.

Always fun with the kids!

After the mission, got some huevos rancheros at Taco Veloz then went into Buckhead to see Todd Rundgren. I’d say he’s my favorite artist of all time.

Interesting reflections on the mirror buildings in Buckhead. I always wonder which one Elton John lives in

I’ve really been looking forward to this. In a moment, I’ll be going to see him at a book signing near Perimeter Mall.

I sat right behind Michelle Rundgren, Todd’s wife. We had a fun conversation. The lady on the right is Candy, she and her husband sat next to me. She was nearly as enthusiastic at the show as I was. And that’s saying something.

He was super good.

I got home around 11:30pm.

It’s funny how almost everyone in the audience was my age or older. Friday, I’ll be going back to Buckhead Theatre to see Bad Suns, another of my favorite bands. I listen to their stuff while I’m biking all the time. I’m sure I’ll be the oldest one there by far that night!

And probably rocking the hardest.

Welcome to me, baby!

I look forward to concert #2 with Todd this evening!
