The show went great, but the weirdest thing happened when Duke began to play "My Baby Is A Nudist". One very energetic man took the empty dance floor as a challenge. As we played, another man jumped up and joined him. And then another. And another.
Before we finished the song, the dance floor held about 20 guys, no women, just guys, all flailing around like fish out of water. As soon as the song ended, they all sat down. At least they had fun.

My wife took all the great shots at this show. Thanks, Christine!

While Mark and I joined Duke for his two football songs, Kristi Lee grabbed my camera and took a cool shot from her perspective of us! Thanks Kristi!

Des Moines marks our last show of the week, and it was a great show to close out the week on! The crowd was crazy, and the band felt good. We were having fun through the night, and we performed some songs Des Moines hasn't heard in a while like, "Blues With A Feeling" and "It's Christmas".
After the show, Bill Ritter and I walked across the street to see some sculptures in the park.
Now I'm going to bed. We're over seven hours from home, and I need some sleep before I drive.

Mark had a classic bass talk joke:
A bass player goes in to see his doctor. When the doctor walks into the exam room, he says to the bass player, "Well, you are going to have to stop masturbating."
The bass player says, "Oh, but why?"
and the doctor says,
"Because I'm trying to give you an eye exam."
