Washing showers for seven hours by wisedog

What a pair of days!  Working with the Christian Appellation Project has been great — their corps of volunteers are very dedicated, and great to work beside, be it 5 in the evening or 5 in the morning.

We spent the day today sleeping until 2 after our all-nighter last night, then working from 3-11, relieving those who took our shift after we left this morning.  It was simple work, but it needed doing, and we were all happy to provide something so tangible, albeit simple, as a clean, hot shower for those dislocated by the hurricane, many of whom were evacuated when Katrina hit three years ago.

We met some amazing people and heard some fantastic stories — I personally had the incredible fortune of jamming with a few folks, and I can say I haven’t had so much fun in a long time.  The moral of the story? Never leave home without your instrument.

Tomorrow we head off to Ohio.  What mysterious wonders will await us there?  Who can say.  For in a whaler, wonders soon wane. I’m very tired.

Holy crap, we’re in Kentucky.
