It's warmed up quite a bit the past days and the snow has rapidly melted off. Yesterday the last bits disappeared after the .40 inches of rain we got the prior 24 hours. I got my posts done for the morning then I set about trying to finish my story. I ended up finishing the chapter and now today I should be writing the last chapter, I hope. It took me till mid morning to get it done and shortly after I finished @stryeyz pulled out her loom.
The initial setup takes a good while to get all the yarn pulled through and then rolled onto the end.
It gets hooked over the peg on the opposite side of the table and once the loom has been filled the yarn is pulled off the peg and cut then rolled up on one end. The yarn is pulled through the eyelets and tied to the other roller.
She got going on her first weaving and has about 20 rows done so far. It's a super cool craft and I can see where it could be really nifty to do a finer thread and make a fabric.
We left the house a little after 2:30 and drove to Spokane. We found parking easily and went to the Spokane Comedy club to check on entry time. We were about 20 minutes early for the doors opening time so we went for a walk towards the park then around the Davenport hotel.
One of the buildings nearby on west Riverside avenue has this radio tower on top and the building is surrounded by wires strung from the edge of the roof. At first I thought it might be an antenna but it might just be for them to string Christmas lights on. I am not sure exactly and will have to keep my eyes out for if they do put lights up on one of my trips to town for grain.
We got in line for the club and were near the front end of the line which meant we got a good table. They come down the line and check people in and assign a table. It works really well and makes it so people aren't fighting for seating. Our friends met us in line and the doors opened a bit late from cleanup from the prior show.
Downtown Spokane Washington.
Our table was right at the end of the walkway to the stage and 3 tables back from the stage.
The room ended up filled by the time the show started. The first comic was from California and the second from Seattle. They were both pretty funny. The opener had the line, "So you guys just aren't doing the pandemic up here huh? You all just opted out?" and we were all ,"YES!".
JP was hilarious and completely on point. I laughed through almost his entire set. He is one of the few comedians that is a real truth teller, like Chapelle, Breuer, Rogan. He is smart and is able to convey his point in a way that makes you think but also laugh.
After the show we met up at Anthony's restaurant which is one of the nicer places in all of Spokane. It sits right next to the Spokane Falls and this was the view from our table. We closed the place down but that wasn't hard since on a Sunday they close at 8pm. Stupidly good food, both of us had the seafood fettuccine and clam chowder and omg so good.
We got home a little after 9pm and got the boys to bed before gong out for our evening soak.
I'm a bit hungover this morning from all the drinking yesterday but it's all good since I am at home. The boys both have school today, hopefully I write the last chapter of my story which will put me over 60k words, and I have to figure out a new roof over hang fro the sheep since theirs is pretty well toast now.
