Dinner tonight was coconut and sweet potato soup, then ratatoui or seafood tagine and a ridiculous mars bar cheesecake to finish. The backstage was very light and airy and most things went smoothly so everyone seemed happy. The smoothie machine (in the green room) didn’t want to behave though which I experienced after Leonard’s daily protein shake when I made a chocolate energy boost with some Cacao powder and most of it painted the table. Luckily Roscoe’s son Charlie was on hand so he, Lisa and I did some investigating and thought we had fixed it……
The next gig when Leonard went to make his smoothie again and the whole things blew up! Happily L’s suit did not get a direct hit.
The day after the Nantes gig we left in the middle of a torrential rain storm and we had all made a run for it to the bus but the rain just became too strong. Several of us took shelter under the awning of a local cafe and some hid in a bus shelter till it was over - we thought it only rained like that in California!
