Week three already?
3 weeks down and so far so good.
The Texas shows were amazing. All three of them were sold out completely. The crowds were awesome.
Reviews from all of the shows so far have been excellent, and most
single out Ann's vocal performance as the highlight of the night.
As for my expereinces - here are some personal notes.
Its damn hot in Texas. My mornings start pulling
merchadise out of a huge semi truck, with my two buddies who each work
for Journey and Cheap Trick. We three work together, which is
really awesome for me, because despite being a not so girley girl, i
still can't pick those huge boxes up and stack them high above my
head. By the time we are done we are drenched. its pretty
Council Bluffs and Oklahoma City were awesome shows. I remember
looking at Ann in OK City thinking...how in the heck does she do that?
I love seeing mongers at the shows. A few of you guys caught me
enjoying the cheap trick set, while trying to hide behind Nancy's
guitars. In Dallas - Rick came in to the wings and threw a
handful of picks at me. The local crew guys were really happy -
as they got to pick up all of them.
Robin teased me that i was there to check out Rick's rear end.
Which totally made me blush - what a joker. (and for the record -
nope - not cheking out his rear!).
More from Robin - In Oklahoma City he took his daughter to the zoo (I
think she's six and sports a hannah montana necklace)- he showed me a
photo of her and a silverback gorilla with a thick layer of glass
between them. They were palm to palm.
In Oklahoma City - The heat really got to Craig. We thought he
was going to fall over by the end of the set. (he's fine)
Debbie caught a cold - but is feeling better already.
I had the stomach flu - or a bit of food poisoning yesterday.
That doesn't work well when you are traveling by bus. I had
to ask them to pull over a few times on the way to florida.
Didn't have a choice really.
The jump seat next to the driver is the best place to have a cup of
coffee in the morning. Put on your headphones and your favorite
song, and watch the world go by.
I love watching Whiz Jr watch Nancy play guitar. (So good to see
you guys! - thank you for the girlie goodies - yummy smelling stuff!)
I really need to make time to learn the new video camera that Ann &
Nancy bought for the website. I promise i'll do that.
Also i'd like to interview a few of you at shows. Just basic
stuff. how long have you been a fan. blah blah blah.
ok - i have to do some paperwork - and then take a nap. I'm still not 100% from that tummy issue.
