Fathers and Birthdays

Today is Z's 47th Birthday... Can't help but remember it, and can't help but silently wish him a very happy birthday. Funny his birthday is totally on Father's Day this year... I bet his Family threw a humongous gala event... at any rate, Z, "Butterflies, Zebras and Moonbeams to you... even though I doubt you'll ever read this... so the world is always in Divine order.

Also, Hope all of you Dad's had a wonderful Father's Day. This is ONLY for those people who have stepped up to the plate and taken care of their children, sacrificing and teaching by example, just what it means to be a Dad... because as the saying goes, "ANYBODY can be a Father, but it takes a special man to be a Dad." Fortunately, mine is both.

To the rest of the deadbeat "FATHERS" who don't amount to shit and don't care about anything but themselves, may you get everything that you truly deserve... and you all know you will one day.

Life is tough, you make your decisions, you live your life and you take responsibility for your actions... it's not always about JUST YOU. Sometimes, you have to look beyond that, and know what is important... those of you who do, you will be rewarded... I think you rock.

The gig went "o.k." I guess, the guitars were mixed way too loud in my ear and I could barely hear myself, so I was straining to sing, and nervous. But I made it through. Not many people showed up, but my friend Kim, Meggy Moon, Richie's friends Matt, and Kenneth and Jash all came out... we really appreciate that. As well, we appreciated the other bands hanging out and staying. We stepped OFF stage around 2:30 a.m.! I was sweaty, exhausted and ready to go home for certain. Went to bed more like 5:00 a.m.

Then I had to get up and go down for Father's Day stuff at Mom and Dad's, which was all good... we had a nice time, and I got to visit with my two sisters, Debbie and Vickie, and my Niece and her husband and baby... Mom and I had coffee, she had a delicious dinner cooked (Roast, Potatoes, Carrots, peas, beans, corn bread and Caramel-Chocolate cake... YUMx100)!!

It was a good day, all-around good weekend... Here comes Monday.

Off the stage at 2:30 am and didn't get to bed until 5. That's Rock 'n Roll baby! ;-)
