Like most touring musicians, I miss my family when I am on the road. Sometimes my wife will email me pictures from home so I don’t feel so far away. Our ‘kids’ consist of three dogs and a tough (or stupid) cat. Tonight my wife sent a picture of our youngest husky, Cowboy, curled up on the couch with Willow, our cat, curled up on top of him…..both sleeping. What in the hell…?! That is one brave (or stupid) cat! You could even go so far as to say she’s got testicular fortitude (or stupidity), which is what Hillary Clinton apparently claims to have as of yesterday in Indiana. Might this explain the pantsuits? And one has to ask, would she still be the first female president? Is this what folks mean when they say Hillary is “a man among boys”? These are tough and relevant questions, and they raise the real issues that make this particular presidential campaign one of integrity. Other, less pertinent issues, such as reviving the industrial economy, ending the war in Iraq, and health care pale in comparison to our inquiring (or stupid) minds.
Onward to Savannah, GA today for a gig at the Live Wire Music Hall. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to stop in at Allman’s Downtown Music, a guitar and drum shop owned by Annie Allman, cousin of Gregg. And then on to Mt.Pleasant, SC to A Dough Re Mi, one of our favorite places to play!
