Last week I was asked to help WGAD/WJBY compete in the Downtown Gadsden Chili Cook-off. I don't have a recipe, but I can make a mean chili. Not having a recipe meant having to guess at how much I needed to feed 100 people. I ended up getting 30 pounds of beef. We (Jay Holland, Donna Patterson & Myself) didn't hand out little tasting cups. We handed out bowls of chili! We made so much that we had to purchase a boat oar to stir it. We didn't run out like a lot of the other folks, we never reached the bottom. We didn't win, but it was some fine chili.
I got home Saturday in time for Jon Guthrey to come over to my house to work on worship set for Sunday morning. It was the first time I ever played with Jon and I had been looking forward to Saturday night so I could get to know him and jam some. Good times!
Sunday I rolled out of bed and got down to the Gadsden Vineyard by 9:00. The worship band consisted of Jon Guthrey (lead guitar), LeNola Bagley (bass), Liz Wood (Hammond), and Tim Rolfe (drums). Richard Moon manned the board. We had a blast - having a nice wall of sound going. I love it when God shows up.
