What sweetens your coffee today II

Recommended Posts

Laurie, a couple of years ago I interviewed songwriter Billy Montana, who told me about how his oldest son got the lyrics to one of the songs he'd written tattooed on his shoulder. He said, "I mean, what are you gonna do, get aggravated that he put the words to your song on his arm? (laughs) Yeah, it’s hard to be ticked off about that."

And then a couple of weeks ago I interviewed the son, Randy Montana, and he confirmed it, because he said it's his favorite song his dad ever wrote.

Your story reminded me of that. :grin:

A girl I know met Johnny Cash in San Francisco and asked him for an autograph... on her arm...

Then she went straight to a tattoo shop and had the autograph tatooed on her arm :laughing:

I did the same thing with Eric Clapron! And my best friend did the same with John Williams.

Finally finished the informational wedding website. I figured, since it's listed on the invitations that we already sent out I should actually get around to putting stuff on it.

:thumbsup: Nice website Ryan, good work. And I also love your pictures. :bow:

My 17-year-old kid is taking a college course at the local community college - while he's still a senior in high school. :grin: :grin: :grin:

He wants to study for the gaming certificate, and so he's taking the introductory course in the fall. He's pretty excited. And I'm about as proud as I've ever been of him. :grin: I hope he doesn't get too bored because it's just an introductory course, and that he keeps in mind it is all a step to better things...

Still buzzing from the My Morning Jacket show. :D If any of you ever get the chance to see them live, do it.

Are they that good live? I've always wanted to see them since I love them so much but I saw them on Jimmy Fallon once and Jim James was kind of awkwardly spinning around in a cape the whole time.

They're that good live. It was the second best show I've ever seen (taking a spot previously held by CSN and Tom Petty. Yeah, that good.) And what looked like awkwardly spinning on television is incredibly badass in person. There was some cape spinning, but all-in-all he's a fantastic frontman. Completely captivating. Like Ronnie Van Zant on acid.

Got laid off from my job today, instead of being upset about it. . . . Instead my fiance and I made an impromptu trip to Vegas. And it is awesome.

I've heard that before; when times get tough, take a vacation.

Hope you've got a large cash cushion.
