Matt1: Very nice!

Rush: It has been good, thank you.

Matt1: How was the house?

Rush: We checked on our Iowa home, took care of things, saw some sights.

Rush: Heading toward Lake Tahoe, now.

Rush: The house is packed with out tennants things!

Matt1: Sounds fun….good weather?

Rush: The moved from a 4,500 square foot home!

Rush: Weather has actually copperated for us!

Mike in DC has joined this room

Matt1: That’s a BIG home!

Matt1: Hello Mike!

Rush: We have missed any of the “bad” stuff.

Mike in DC: Good evening!

Mike in DC: Rachel is doing her online class tonight. (Getting another MM degree!)

Rush: Good evening to you, Mike…and a nod to the absent Rachel!

Matt1: Bravo, Rachel!

Mike in DC: She is with us in spirit…even as she discusses the mysteries of music education.

Rush: Nice work, Rachel!

Rush: Matt, I am just a passenger tonight…YOU are the driver!

Matt1: Oh, Rush….I emailed you last weeks chat log and will do the same tonight

will maybe stay on, but I cannot be sure.

Matt1: 10-4!

Mike in DC: Oooh. This is like having your learner’s permit with Dad in the back seat!

Rush: 🙂

Matt1: Talk about being nervous

Mike in DC: Matt: Be sure to use your turn signals.

Matt1: Buckle up, Mike!

Rush: I guess I am in that mode sort of as Sarah got her license this year!

Mike in DC: *wipes sweaty palms on pants*


Mike in DC: Good for you, Rush.

Rush: And, I admit that the experience provided me with a few more grey hairs.

Matt1: 16….yikes!

Mike in DC

Matt1: lol

Rush: 17 today.

Mike in DC: Almost an “adult” (note quotes)

Matt1: I remember when, Rush

Rush: Yes…and …yes!

Rush: “Yes”

Matt1: We’ll start the short tonight around 7:45

Mike in DC: They arrive on campus every year and we shake our heads. Then, voila! A couple of decades pass and they’re doing great things. God does indeed have a sense of humor.

Rush: Okay.

Mike in DC: All primed for the League of Eternal Peace here…

Rush: am positioned at the 1:02:16 mark.

Matt1: That’s next week

Mike in DC: Ack. Thought we were at the 31:35 mark. Was that last week?

Matt1: we end there tonight

Matt1: We start at 46:48

Matt1: According to above?

Mike in DC: Oops. Followed wrong week! One sec.

Rush: OH!

Rush: I was looking at the wrong one!

Rush: Sorry!

Matt1: That’s why I’m paid the BIG bucks as a stand in

Mike in DC: OK. At 46:48. STILL in San Francisco with the Fraternal Order of World Peace folks.

Rush: Yes. I am using my laptop tonight.

Rush: Smaller screen.

Matt1: Have you and your family felt Ok staying at hotels with all the craziness, Rush?

Matt1: Just curious

Matt1: We need to get away, but my wife still has a bit of anxiety

Rush: No problem with the hotels. Just the breakfasts have been meager…sacked: sweets.

Rush: Wherever we have been has been mac]sk optional.

Rush: (mask)

Matt1: Ah….we’re now going mandatory masks here in FL

Rush: After leaving CA it has been pretty lax.

Matt1: We;ll start in TWO minutes!

Mike in DC: It seems that things vary greatly by region, Matt. Our area (DC metro) is a mess, but rural area in Maryland seem quite safe at the moment. If you head to a fairly quiet region, I bet you’ll be ok.

Rush: I suspect that Tahoe may be more strict.

Rush: Maybe not on the Nevada side.
