Daddy has been busily making jute rope; it's become quite popular with riggers in the states. We're selling something like 3-7 sets of rope a week :) The extra income is very welcome. It's actually gotten to the point where I asked Daddy to quit his actual job and make rope full time. He's really considering it and will probably make a decision by next weekend. He says it requires a lot of trust in his partner (meaning me) in order for him to do something like this. I take that as a good sign :)
This Easter weekend, Daddy and I will be in Memphis to do our first out of state performance. I'm not sure why it makes me so nervous to know it's a performance: it's something I've done a million times at play parties in the area. Just the idea that people will have certain expectations makes me...I don't know...giddy. Nervous. Excited. Did I mention nervous? I've been speaking with Clover about it and she gave me tons of awesome advice. Still nervous, though.
If anyone of my readers (all 16 of you?) are in the Memphis area, please come by! There's to be a high protocol dinner beforehand and a funtimes play party afterwards. We'll also be vending some of our rope...because...we have to pay for this trip somehow :D
