Oh yeah!

Little Rose

...I'm on tour again.

We've been on the road since late September.

My diet is horrible right now.

My sleep patterns are off again.

I need a new phone.

And glasses.

So everything is...normal.

Just to get a touring thing off my chest; I look after our costumes and I have a rant just for the modern washing machine.

You have one job to do. One job. And that is to make my life easier.

I am all for conserving water. Yet you were the exception I was willing to make. Just fill your tub with water, swish my clothes around vigorously, spin and stop! Really, this should take no longer than 10 to 15 minutes TOPS! Sensing my laundry? Why are you sensing my laundry and why does it take you up to five minutes to do this? And good Lord! Spin a bit and spray a little water. Stop. Spin a bit and spray a little water. Stop. REALLY? Why don't I just tie my clothes to my dog, let him drag them around the backyard while I spray them with the hose?


You know where I am right now? I want to go back to washing machine roots. The Maytag Wringer Washer is before my time. I've only seen them on film and in pictures. I've never used one in my life. Yet THAT blast from the past is looking more appealing right now than you modern time wasters.

I may get one just for kicks.

I'll be back later...



Happy Birthday, Brother Michael! I still miss you!


Rest easy, Brother Gene. I'm going to miss you so much!

He's home Gilda. Hold him close for us!

Here's a Fun Fact!


It seems I can't say no to delicious opportunities to stay busy!

If you have had a visit to my News page, you can see I am going on tour again. This will be my fourth time. I said after the third time that I wasn't going to do it anymore. Touring is time consuming and quite grueling. Yet here I go again!

But here's the real fun part about this fun fact. I had some concerns about not having a show to do between my last one and the tour. After failed attempts at finding an audition for a show that would not interfere with tour rehearsals, I thought perhaps taking a little break would be a good idea.

Then God answered my prayer anyway, just as I was getting into the idea of having a lie in. Maybe He likes to see me busy as well.

We're going to be visiting many of the same spots we performed in before so I don't think I'll be treating this tour like I did the other one. With the exception of a few shots of anyplace new. I'll need to think on this one. Maybe more random shots of the USA?

Time to break out the digital camera again!

De Ja Vu. I'll explain later.

Don't Get Too Down Today...

Brother Michael

...That is what I wrote in my journal early in the week.

I'm really going to try this year.

Seven years in and this day is still hard for me.

I still have a mini attack of sadness and panic whenever I even think about the exact spot I was in when I learned you were gone.

And the thing is, I had to have felt it right when it happened because that whole morning and afternoon I just wasn't myself. Trying to enjoy a day out with family yet trying my best to hold back tears. I didn't even know why I was feeling so sad.

I was thinking about you as that had been a way for me to restore whatever joy I had lost. But that wasn't even working.

Then I found out why.

I wanted to die in that very moment. All of us who love you. We all did. Wherever you were, that's where we wanted to be. Not stuck here without you.

Still stuck here. Still missing you.

My goal for today is to draw you again. And listen to a song or two. I'm going to try.

I'm really trying Brother. I'm really trying. This is not easy.

I miss you so much!
