I think it's cool that I was at a show that so many people think was special, but I didn't leave feeling that way at all. I'm embarassed to say I'd rather have heard more songs off of Buffet Hotel than what we got. The typical covers bothered me more this year than they usually do. For the first time, I started to wonder if it's really worth going EVERY year.
Was it too much tequila or not quite enough? :pirate:
Probably not quite enough.

Maybe it's because in spite of all the work we do, it's the child in us we really value.

If only JB had played Nautical Wheelers.......... :cry: And my wife and I continue to attend every year now because, whether we want to admit it or not, the "end" of JB doing annual tours is probably closer than we want to imagine.
On most days I say: "Wrinkles only go where the smiles have been...."
Sometimes I can only say: "There is no dumbass vaccine......"

If something or someone gets you down, just remember: "In a hundred years it all won’t matter.........."

Truthfully...I am surprised he hasn't done Life Short, Call Now or Beautiful Swimmers for an encore. I also thought we might get to here the title track-Buffet Hotel at some point. I too would like to hear more of the new cd. Maybe we will get a couple of them on the next tour. Otherwise...fun shows. I know I enjoyed the last 2 I attended this year.
Bring me the hot sauce, bring me a beer. Going to be the last man standing, but where do you go from here?
