November 4, 2009 | Johnson, KS - Fly on the Wall

Finally a travel day with a night off! We drove six hours today from Grand Island, Nebraska to Johnson, KS.  It's so different being in this part of the country.  I realize now what a city boy I've become being in NY for 12 years now.  It's really been great driving every day through all of this farm country and then doing shows very night.  It really gives some needed perspective and a welcome break from the relentless momentum of city life. We tried to go bowling with Steve Doyle because that's what he wanted to do on his birthday (which is tomorrow).  We ended up at Prairie Lanes in the next town over (28 miles away!).  No luck on the bowling because it was a league night.  So we finally landed at the Windbreak, the local bar.

I'm posting this pic of the wall of my hotel room here in Johnson.  It's a pretty nice and simple room and it even comes with a fly swatter hanging high on the wall next to the LCD TV!
