- Recording CD at Shermans?
It was only forecast to go down into the low 50's, but my stinging fingers told me, by about 8 p.m. that it was in the low 40's.
I headed for Harrahs Casino, it being too early to try to crawl under the dock, what with the Natchez still being abuzz as a floating party, and the heightened security being present accordingly.
I went to the roulette tables, of which I only saw 3 (which seems strange in a casino the size of 2 football fields) and was actually approaching to lay my 5 dollar chip on "black," before I noticed the "15 dollar min." on a red LED display on the table.It came up black. 13 black.
I asked around and was informed that at the roulette tables, one CAN bet as little as 5 dollars, but it didn't become clear to me when this is possible. They might have groups of people commandeer the table and up the bet to keep riff raff away, I don't know...
So, I almost bet the 5 dollar chip, and just may tonight...
I woke up with about 73 bucks yesterday morning; I woke up with about 63 this morning.
I had played the Lilly spot continuing putting the various harmonicas through their paces, discarding most of them; and resolving to get a new harp, first thing (this) morning.
I have gotten a brand new Hohner "Ol' Standby," in the key of F.
This is the same "one" which Dorise gave me, almost a year ago now. I guess I am going back to review what I have learned and might just try to replace harps in the order in which I acquired them.
CDI have half a mind to call Sherman in Baton Rouge to see if I could lay down some tracks on his .WAV audio recorder and at least get started on the project of having a CD of my own stuff...
