So yeah. I stood 5 feet away from BB King today. It was pretty sweet. And I got a picture of Lucille, his guitar, in its case!

I’m working at the Pageant of Peace/National Christmas Tree lighting in Washington DC this week and I get to watch all the performers do their rehearsals. This is Jackie Evancho from America’s Got Talent. Huge voice from such a little person. Tomorrow I’ll get to watch BB KING and MAROON 5 do their thing. I’ll try to get video if I can.">
