Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Home

We began our trip with this:
Then we went here:
And saw these:

And this:


The Friday concert was a blast, although we (as usual) had some errors. Still we had lots of folks up dancing, and most of the crowd sang along - some of them throughout the three-and-a-half hours we performed! The Saturday concert was a "come and sing with us, be part of the music, informal and relaxed" sort of thing, and was awesome. We were delighted by a group of fans who even wrote a spoof of one of my songs that had me in stitches last night. I got the words this morning so I could sing it and giggle at will.

I cannot begin to tell you how odd it is to have actual fans. They sing, too - I expect they'll be on stage one day, themselves.

I'll tell you more about all of it tomorrow. Right now, I need to finish unpacking, love my Evil Genius, and put lotion on my new tattoo.

Oh, but I wanted to tell you...I came home to this:


Nice, huh? I had a fine time, but it's good to be home.

Hi KiKi....it's Melanie from FPG. Yes, those are sand hill cranes and if you are wearing red they will follow you everywhere. KiKi can make the "sand hill crane" call pretty good, too. Hehe. We all had a blast with you guys this weekend. Thanks for the birthday song and everything.
