Have you ever reached out to someone who hasn’t treated you well, in vulnerability, to try to talk with them and clean things up between you- only to have them take advantage of your kindness and abuse you further? That happened to me recently. Someone was aggressive and abusive towards me so I reacted and was the same towards them. But then I felt guilty about acting so childishly, so I spoke with them about it- explaining why I was acting that way in the first place and asking them to respectfully treat me as I promised to treat them. But their reaction was cruel! They dug in and became more abusive, making me cry. So…. I wrote a song about them ☺️ Here’s the chorus, and if this has ever happened to you, then this song is your song too ❤️
Do not mistake kindness for weakness
Tears for broken down,
Sympathy for love
I am stronger than
You will ever be
You will never be
Omg this has nothing to do with Father’s Day!!! Happy Father’s Day everyone!!
We had such a great time, as always, at the Driskill Hotel this past Friday- our 3rd show ever with Mr. Michael Bahan on drums, and loving every minute of it! Of course, that’s with Mr. Rick Watson on bass and Jorge Harada on guitar, we’re having such a good time playing for and yukking it up with folks!
I’m still working on a film in Dallas, and don’t come home again now until mid-July. So the gents will continue to rehearse without me- eeeeeeeee- and then we’ll next play right after Mr. Bahan gets back from visiting his mum in Scotland- as in the next day, ha! I know how this goes… 😉 so make sure you stop by the Mueller Cafe July 28 for some more rockin’ good times and to help prop our drummer up!
Then we head to the NW to play the Kustom Kulture Festival in Kingston, WA, and a private show a few nights later to help celebrate Ed and Britta’s anniversary and what might very well be our last show ever at Highway 99 y’all… just sayin’… We REALLY look forward to seeing all our old pals up there in August!! And meanwhile, we’re working out the bugs in new songs, so stay tuned 🙂
Well, to some folks anyway 😉 I’m so excited about the new lineup with Michael Bahan on drums, Rick Watson on upright bass, and of course Jorge Harada on guitar and yours truly on pipes 🙂
While I’ve been out of town working on yet another film, Jorge and the gents have been rehearsing- and everyone has contacted me to say how much they enjoy playing together. Nice!
Our first show together will be at Floore’s Country Store in Helotes next Friday May 25- for which I’m flying home and joining the lads on stage. Yoiks! No stick time for mama, just plug and play 😉 I sure hope to see a lot of smiling supportive friends and fans’ faces there that night!
We have a few fun shows coming up after that: Saturday June 8 at Austin’s own Driskill Hotel, Saturday July 28 at Cafe Mueller, and then a quick jaunt out to the lovely NW to play the Kustom Kulture show Friday August 17, and a private show at our fave Highway 99 Blues Club on Sunday August 19! More shows TBA and we hope to see you soon 🙂
