We spent some time in Minneapolis. John is pursuing his dream in becoming an audio engineer. Since he has been running our sound for several years now, it is only right that the parents take a road trip in support of his questions. We did the touristy things in addition to the school tours. At the last minute, Tom threw the guitar in the car "just in case" we happened across an open mic. We had a little down time on Sunday evening and hit up 2 open mics in one evening. So different than in Milwaukee, both in amount and in character. We heard 2 covers. The remaining were original songs, many of them stunning. It is good to know that the spirit of the troubadour is immortal.
