Somewhere in the middle of America

I'm on Day 3 of my weekend in Nebraska and I'm having a great time. I'm sitting at The Foundry, where I'm playing tonight, and listening to a couple old guys talk about the inventions of ancient Mayans. The original question was "what do you think about original sin?" I think they think that means "can you come up with a sin that's original?" I'm still not quite sure where this is going...

I had a really fun show last night in Lincoln. Crystal Davy, who filled in for Danielle with Caedmon's for a while last year, sang a few songs with me. Her husband Ben put on the show and did a great job. She's going to join me again tonight, and I'm grateful. I'm always more comfortable playing music with other people than just by myself.

I need to pass along some truly terrible news. I left my hat on the airplane on the way out here. This was the best hat I've ever owned. I filed a claim with Southwest, so maybe it will show up, but I doubt it. It's a pretty amazing hat. If I found it, I don't think I'd turn it in. Much sadness...

Well, I'm going to go walk down the street and see if the used bookstore a few doors down is still open. Any suggestions?
