It's been a busy month for October in the North Country. On the 6th I played at a benefit at The Norh Side Improvement league in Watertown. It was called Doug Woodstock. Doug was a friend and local musician who died recently. The event was to raise money for his two sons. The day before The Better Half and I attended a wedding as guests. That was a nice, fun event at the Tug Hill Winery.
The following weekend I photographed a wedding in Syracuse on Saturday (which I just finished editing today) then played guitar for three hours at another wedding at Wellesley Island on Sunday. This past weekend I was free of all free lance jobs/gigs. This Saturday I have a photography job for the NY State teachers union at the fairgrounds in Watertown. I also recent played three consecutive Thursday evenings at The Channelside restaurant in Clayton. So it's been really nice and greatly improved this months cash flow.
