This Thread has been treading water, in my head, a few weeks now;
,...no internet,.. good weather,.. no time(!).
I've been biting my lips.

the Streets are the greatest 'boards' in the world.
...... some of the time .......
the Streets are the 'gutters' of the world.
...... some of the times ......
They're as 'sure',.. as flipping a coin in a pancake factory.
,.....Heads AND Tails.......,

(a week, in a month,.. in a year..)
Juli the 5th, '14. .,...Heads...
Munich has invited US(!) to perform in front of their City Hall (Marien Platz).
,..pay us(!!),.... to perform, in front of their....
"Where do we PARK in Munich?,!?... It's impossible!?!"
......"Park behind City Hall,.. right in the grass,... in the middle of towne."
"Where can we change clothes?, leave some props?"
....."Come in the Rathaus(City Hall),... use any room you need."
"Where CAN we play?... the Munich Streets are soooo controled?!!?"
...."Where ever you like,... we'll give you a special permission...."
ehh?,.. Monika, pinch me. ..

The Fest was called, "The City does it Best!",...
a sort of 'open house' for the towne.
They had seen us in Ingolstadt,... Munich forbids us(!).
oK,.. cool Shows.
Good money,... they paid for their ban.....
Thomas Florio, Opera Singer, caught a Show,.. followed us home,
drank Raspberry Schnapps all night,...
What a day!,.. what a night.

July 7th, Monday. Bad Tolz,... Tails.
Had to park 2 kilometers from the towne center.
,push the Show in.
The pedestrian zone,... trucks, cars,.. few folks,.. wait.
Set-up,... wait.
wait.
wait.
Then it came,.
the rain.
Rain. Rain. Rain.
Stood the whole day waiting,..
to push the Show two kilometers home.

July 8th, Tuesday.
De ja vu,... "Monday ditto blues"...
push. wait. rain. rain. wait. push home.

The 9 th of July,.. nice weather!.
,but the Polizei knocked first,..
",..have to move,... not a camping ground."
Truck wouldn't start,..!.. "scheiße".
repaired truck,.... drove... 1/2 kilometer farther from towne....

Thursday, the 10th.
4th attempt at storming the metropol....
yeah!,.. turned it!..
,somewhere along the day, Marco and Helga hooked on to us,.. like burrs.
Fans(!).
followed us home.
Wanted to run away and join the Show..
invited themselves for dinner,..
After dinner, they were too scared to walk 'home' alone,.. in the dark.
,had to call the Polizei to taxi them 'home'......crazy.
but..

....there's always the "day to day"',...
sewing, cleaning,... latta machiattos...
,these are the time the coin is flying in the air,.. I suppose.

.. . . ... . . .. ,! .. .. .., ;..'... .. * ... ,. .. .

,.Head AND Tails.,
Sunny days,.. and "hip-hip-hurrays".
,....snow and rain and hail.
No bread for butter,.. or gas in the tank,
.....leg's between the tail.

Things going right, with nothing left;
empty hands, with a heart in the chest,
..... Smiles, and grins, and kisses.
Two winks for the price of one,
an empty head, with a mind full of fun,
.....no girlfriend,.. but a 'Missus'.

....moments of breakdowns,
bottoms- ups, and in-betweens.
.....times of pomp, and plush,
and glories.......
But in the end,
we're merely men,
..... of bones, and dreams, and stories.

got it,
gallagher.

Love the photos. And I think all city halls should be called the Rathaus.
