cow valves?

Well I guess it’s a part of getting old but I do seem to be spending more time visiting with folks in the hospital and it’s about to get a lot more frequent. Not only do I have David to worry about but when we get back from up north my Dad’s going in for major heart surgery. On Tuesday the 13th they’ll put 2 cow valves in his heart in a 5 hour ordeal. He said his doctor, who looked like Howie Mandel but was funny, performs about 180-200 of these procedures a year with a very high success rate. I’m not so much worried about that part, it’s more the depression and pain he’ll suffer afterwards. He’s pretty damn tough though. He’ll be down for a while but I think he’ll be back out “hittin’m” (golfballs) next Spring. Well, we’re outta here heading to Chicago in a couple of hours, I better go pack and dye my hair! Tell somebody you love to come see us!
Nov. 7 Fitzgerald’s Chicago

Nov. 9 Lynagh’s Lexington
Nov. 10 Patrick Sullivan’s Knoxville


PS..why does gas always go up whenever we book faraway gigs? Never fails!

May these gigs help you to get thru this hard times.
For shure it's not easy to go on with some kinda life as usual, but like Jerry Lee Lewis sings: It's just one o' them ol' things we all go thru.
All the best for your Dad.
There's always sunshine after the rain!
