I have had to come to a very difficult decision, given my love for y'all, utter respect for what you do, and ongoing acute desire to help advance your cause however possible. My blog is going into hiatus for the indeterminate future. I hope it's not the end of it, because it has been a total labor of love, and I like to think I've added a little value in this town (and beyond), both for the band, and for your (our) many compadres. But, the simple truth is that I have to get a grip on my deteriorating health, and that precludes -- on the emphatic advice of my physician -- being out late on Monday nights any more, at least for now. So, I will not be coming to the Palms gigs for a while. And, when I can, it'll likely be back where I started, as one of the ever-thunderstruck fans. Sit in the back, catch an hour, and then go home.
As a practical matter, my day job is moving more and more into the outright in-the-trenches operational phase, which is going to require that I be both in northern Nevada and southern Utah a lot dealing with our client medical clinics. This will also make blogging the gigs problematic. Wish none of this were so. But it is.
Carry on, bros', keep slammin' 'em.
Been a crazy, up & down blogging year (below, QTRs 1-3, 2010, click the image to enlarge).
SPEAKING OF "MOUNT GRIMM"
On a happier note, in the wake of his America's Got Talent win, my li'l bro' Michael Grimm asked if he could use some of my shots for a fundraising calendar for southern Mississippi post-Katrina relief.
Lucie sent me a couple of copies. Cheryl took one back to Walnut Creek today (she's been home for the weekend).
