make it !!! It was a blast !!!
Been ages since we rehearsed OR played as
the original threesome, but it went off without
a hitch... one of MY fave shows, anyway !

from Southampton !!! LOL

Well, that gig came and went... too quickly... Saturday March 4th, Graffiti's on Baldwin in Kensington Market,.. great little place, played there before, years ago...

Danny couldn't make it, so the next best thing (?) was Skeets...

This dude is a legend, i tell you ! Sharp, intuitive, GREAT drummer and funny as they come !
I think he's my NEW Brother ! What a blast it was playing with him, we just locked in soooo
tight, soooo quickly...

Oh, yeah... Gideon was there, TOO... poor guy never gets ANY credit lol

Tons of friends, tons of fun, lots of beers, AND bourbon.... did i say tons of fun ?

Back there on Saturday April 1st, matinee, 4-7pm... hoping my liver is ready...

...my NEWschweeeeeetheart... belated birthday/christmas present... from the wife...
...well, kinda... she DID say i could keep it, so it's kind of like she bought it LMAO !

I call her Jessica... not after Roger Rabbit's wife, really, but after someone who was
nicknamed after her... always liked the mint green colour.... the tortoise shell pickguard...

I needed a backup bass... well, not REALLY, bcause i'm not gigging at the moment...
(DAMN the False Idols lol), but mentally, i HAD to have one... besides, i'll sell off some gear to cover the cost, and that'll help clear out the basement, garage, etc...

Ok, so i'm trying to justify it...

The weird thing ? I haven't really PLAYED it, i just liked the feel of it...

That's how i choose ALL my basses, so it's not out of the norm for me...

...so, i'm weird... get over it... I HAVE ! LOL


Peace

...snow on the bbq, bourbon in the glass... DO I feel like shoveling ?
I think I'll take a pass...

I love the way it blows and drifts, and covers up the brown...
I watch it late at night, because it softly hits the ground...

Sure, I HAVE to shovel it, it doesn't get much lighter...
Oh, for my sake, I'll take a break... My chest is getting tighter...

...kidding... i LOVE the snow !!!

...to ME, it just wouldn't be a Christmas without the blanket of snow...

I can do without the commercialism, or the ads that seem to start earlier and earlier every year, or the crowds, or....

...wait...

I'm NOT in Markham anymore, the crowded roads to induce road rage...

I don't DO malls... I shop LOCAL, and we have TONS of places to support up here...

Local artisans, farms, The Southampton Olive Oil Company ( of which, I have 16 bottles in my cupboard, but truth be told... I DO USE THEM, EVERYDAY !) ;-)

Gas is cheaper up here... so is my insurance...

We have neighbours who clear other people's driveways... we look after each other up here...
It's how we thrive, survive, and get to build REAL, solid, long-term relationships...

It's where we become who we've always wanted to be, all that we thought we COULD be...

It's where i live... Southampton, my "Forever Home"...


Peace !

... another crappy day in Paradise... lol

...ok, here's how my OLD Metropolis is doing, sports-wise, as of late...

In the CFL, Toronto Argonauts are 5-11, heading into Friday night's game against the
Calgary Stampeders (14-1-1)... good luck, Lads...

The Blue Jays are OUT of the MLB playoffs, losing to Cleveland... BADLY... lol

The Toronto Maple Leafs ( don't get me wrong... i don't dislike them, they're just not the team i cheer for... GO BLACK HAWKS !) had a four goal lead... and (you guessed it... lol)
LOST the game 5-4 in overtime... SNAFU, i suppose...

...perhaps when Donald Trump loses the election, he can hitch a ride to the border, bribe his way across the 49th...coach ANY team in the 6ix, and MAKE THEM GREAT AGAIN ! ;-)

I'm not sure how the US Election is going to play out, but i can't help but feel we'll suffer, regardless of the result... i don't dig The Donald, but that doesn't mean i'm behind Hillary, either... is that the BEST those two parties could offer ? I'll bet the rest of the planet is snickering at every headline...

I suppose I should do the same, sip my Tim's Double Double, and count my blessings...

Nite nite...

...ok, so I caved, and watched the Presidential Candidate's Debate on television tonight...

   I'm sure, to some great extent, the outcome WILL affect most of us living above the Canada/US Border... along with the rest of the planet, but it wasn't so much a debate as it was a reinforcement of Trump's inability to grasp reality...

   COULD this #TangerineNightmare ( as Bill Maher refers to him) actually WIN the role of Leader of ONE of the Greatest countries in the world ?

...Well... as my Uncle Al so aptly put it, and I think it fits well in THIS situation... "I'd rather rub **** in my hair..."




...yup...

Night night...
