I am so excited about tonight's Concert in Perelandra with Tim and Myles Thompson .... wow! They are graciously driving all the way over from Nashville, TN to play in my little space. It truly astounds me that God has allowed me to produce such a room ... and then have such amazing guests come visit. I'm not just talking about the folks who grace my stage ... no ... the folks sitting in the seats are a blessing to me in ways I'm not sure they'll ever completely understand. Then again ... I don't understand it either ... so I guess "we're even!"August 6, 2016Gee ... what a day. It's been about a week long already and it's just past noon.
Watching my friend ... whom I've never met ... but I'm looking forward to the ... chance.
He says he's getting old. I think he's getting better. I won't tell him that though ... his head might swell. It's pretty sufficient the size it is.

I'm posting this for, at least, two reasons. Neither of them have anything whatsoever to do with my former wife ... Lisa. One reason is ... I miss Glen Frey ... the other is I'm still so glad Joe found the eagles. If you have a few minutes ... listen to these wonderful harmonies ... along with Don and Glen's contributions to ... what really good music is. I hope you can appreciate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5KtEToyWrI

I have a meeting in a little over an hour ... and I'm still "listening." Last post for now ... I actually attended this tour ... I think. You can see here that Joe's getting a bigger part. Vocals even clearer than my last post. Henley just "ripping it" like he does. Ok ... gotta go ... I really need a shower. Hopefully ... back soon! Oh ... I almost forgot .... here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHje9w7Ev4U#t=132.966167

OK ... meeting over. It stalled a little when I emphasized "Arminianism" ... I'm pretty sure the "stumble" was over pre-destination ... but, unfortunately, we didn't get that far. Hey ... he's a man of the cloth ... I'm just a servant ... so ... well ... it's more complicated than I can compose at this moment. He seems like a nice guy ... his name is Joe.

I like alot about this cut ... but one of the things I like most is the look on Don Henley's face. It's like ... ok ... so we're giving this guy a chance. Now he might have been thinking ... damn ... that pastrami sandwich could have been a mistake just before the show. But what I like most is ... he did get into it ... pretty quick. Thanks for taking a chance on Joe ... he's got a B7 diminished to "die for."
Yikes ... just checking my work. Forgot the link? This one is different but it can still apply. Henley's facial "thing" is not as pronounced but it's still a cool take. Glen's obviously loving it as is the keyboard player and Timothy too. I like that Joe's playing a Les Paul with his other guitar "slung" over his back in that "wowie zowie" section. What the heck is he saying anyway? OK ... not forgetting this time ... here's the link: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2vp76p_the-eagles-rocky-mountain-way-farewell-1-live-from-melbourne-2005-hd1080p_music
I've just got to get myself a pair of those pants ... I wonder if Eddie Bauer ... no ... that's not likely. Hey ... maybe the clown store I just bought stock in. Yeh ... "that's the ticket."August 11, 2016
Thank you ... my brother and friend ... Steven Curtis Chapman ... tonight. Long story ... short ... I love a girl. I wish I knew what to do to convince her that to share a cup of coffee with me would save her like maybe 2 bucks ... and I'm willing to cover. Oh ... gosh ... you probably don't even know her ... she's from rocky mountains high. She can write a song. But, then ... she's probably a vegitarian. Ok ... nevermind.

If anybody knows Don personally please relate that I'm back into "Hell Freezes Over" today. Wow ... like a fine wine it just keeps getting better! Thank the guys too! And thank you father for re-lighting the old fire ... I know it was damp and a little hard to start ... but it's gonna be warm again in the Winter ... and it's actually cool now. How you do dat? Oh and we all love you ... almost like we're crazy folks!August 12, 2016Ni E led me to these guys a few years back. Saw them in Asheville. They were great. Can't wait until I see them again.

Well ... I pulled an "all-nighter" last night. Lots of prayer and music ... and more tears than usual. Man I'm a real "softy!" My walk to the "top" tonight took from 2:30 until 4:15 AM. Well now ... I am really old at this point so I wanted to "pace" myself. Remember that cool snow experience I posted a little while back? This was a little like it ... the first fire-flies I've seen lately. What was super cool was that the few I saw looked like "stars" in the sillouetted leaves. The stars were brilliant ... I started singing "Vincent." Love to the Kingdom!
