House Keeping

Man, I totally and highly recommend going to get pedicures with your daughters. That was so fun! And relaxing. I did not go to sleep but I sure did close my eyes a few times and go somewhere else.
I just feel like a new woman.
And oh yeah, my toes look nice too.

Okay. I have not been answering comments because I have been so very busy but let me just say that this is not a new policy or anything. I'll get back to it right away. I promise.

And one more thing- Lon and Lis Williamson are going to be doing what they're calling a Mini Tour and I want to post their schedule in case of any of you are able to make any of the gigs. If just ONE of my people here made it to see them, it would make me so very, very happy. Lon and Lis are not only incredibly fine musicians and songwriters, but they are the most grace-filled people I know. It's always a beautiful evening going out to here them play. So here's the itinerary:

  1. St. Helena is near me as the crow flies. Hmmm...will have to think about the drive down.

  2. Syd- You would not regret it for one moment. Would be a lovely evening out for you and your bride. And Lon and Lis would be thrilled.

  3. What a fine time Lis and Lon are going to have on tour ~ everyone who goes will have so much fun.

    Syd, I hope you and your wife will decide to go. Your souls and your ears will be so happy!

  4. Pedicures are so totally relaxing--daughters or no daughters.

  5. Neither here nor there but I just read your post Assumptions and Faith and ...Assholioness (did I spell that right lol ) and I LOVED IT. I could read a whole book of that.

    Now for some reason (because I've heard you do this before lol) I think you will say you can't understand why I'd say this, why I'd love your writing about your life, but I do, and you'll just have to take my word for it, that's it's interesting and wonderful. It reallyis.

  6. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to appreciate getting pedicures.

  7. If they come to fucking Ohio, I'll go. But who wants to come here?

  8. Towanda- I know. They are wonderful.

    Lulumarie- That is the TRUTH! I hope they go.

    Maggie May- You have no idea how happy that makes me. Thank-you, baby.

    Angie- It will happen sooner than you think.

    Ms. Bastard-Beloved- No. You're just going to have to come here to hear them. Done.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
