This has been a hellish week...being sick...still being busy with work...having to do it from home...which in some ways, really was not awful!

We will be doing a short post on Sunday in honor of two very wonderful people - so stop on by if you have a is not often we do a weekend post, so we don't blame you if y'all forget....

We will wait....

OK, back? All set? Good...

Then Monday we have another little celebration planned. We have ordered the hors d'oeuvres and the booze will be flowing and there will be entertainment and there are rumors that Hill and Obama and even J. McCain might be coming by...well, if they find a crowd - they come and speak....

We really appreciate your words of caring and concern this week....y'all are good people...

So, Billy Crystal got his one at bat as a NY Yankee yesterday. He acted as DH, leading off for the Yankees he actually got the bat on the ball and hit a hopper foul down the first base line. Worked the count to 3-1 and then swung through two mediocre fast balls.

Still curious if the money he is paid for the one-day contract will go to a charity or will Billy buy the kids new cars?

OK, the pastry chef is here to show me the pies and cakes and other goodies they are recommending for Monday...

Dress is casual...which means, Matt-Man, you can NOT come dressed in only those purple panties...

Have a wonderful weekend....This has been playing in the background as we are composing, so we just thought...what the hell...

From "Who's Crying Now" is a song recorded by JOURNEY. It was written by Jonathan Cain and Steve Perry. It was released in 1981 as the first single from Escape and became the album's second most successful single, reaching #4 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and the Mainstream Rock Tracks charts.

The song is highlighted by Steve Perry's smooth, soulful lyrics, piano playing by Jonathan Cain which interludes with a bass riff by Ross Valory, and acoustic guitars.

There are no electric guitars until the end of the song, when Neal Schon plays a repeating guitar solo. Originally, according to Schon on In the Studio with Redbeard (which devoted an entire episode to the making of Escape), he recorded an aggressive guitar solo which he liked but Steve Perry and Jonathan Cain didn't like.

Then Schon added that the final solo on the record was done in a half-hearted fashion but Cain and Perry loved it. Additionally, drum playing by Steve Smith is only found in the choruses and towards the end of the song.

  4. Fine then!! I'll wear a bra as well. Neil Schon rocked. Enjoy the weekend. I'll have something for you either today or tomorrow. Cheers!!

  5. Wow, it sounds like you have quite an event planned on Monday.

    And that Journey song? It's my favorite of theirs - even though I'm not a big Journey fan.

    Have a great weekend.

  6. Travis Cody Says:
  7. Billy Yank did ok. He made contact against a major league pithcher. Maybe the pitcher didn't really go after him like he would have gone after Johnny D, but Billy did a leadoff hitter's job and got the guy to throw a bunch of pitches.

    At the age of 59 and 364 days!

  8. Celebration, huh? Hmmmm....count me in!

  9. Angell Says:
