Greetings from the middle of our “maternity leave”.

Justin live 0004

We welcomed the Youngest of Dubs on April 2nd when Justin and his wife had a bouncing baby boy. They are all doing great and we send them our heartiest congratulations and much love. We have left Justin alone for a few weeks but I’m sure he’s getting a lot less sleep then he would on the road 🙂

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Feb / Mar dates. It was a mad dash around the map but we made all the shows. Besides a few close calls with airlines and The MAX 8’s being grounded it went quite smoothly.

THE SIREN, MORRO BAY.

Our first show back will be Friday, May 10th at a fairly new venue on the Central Cal Coast. I can honestly say that this is one of my favorite places in the world, but not just because of great gigs. Because of fishing!!! I regularly fish out of this brilliant little town, both on Charter boats and my own little tug. My son and I have had some great camping times here although he did once deliver a now famous one liner to me when he did not want to stay there a second night. It went something like this. “Hey Dad, why are we sleeping in the dirt when we live 40 minutes away”. Obviously doesn’t have the camping bug like his Dad.

Anyhow, it’s a fun venue and will be a great way to get back into playing. Both Justin and I will have a lot of friends there as it’s so close to where we live. Really looking forward to it.
Grab your tix now as it’s going fast.

As this email seems to have a lot of Dad stories I thought I would share one more. My son got his license and first car a few weeks ago. Wow. Wasn’t ready for that. Knew it was coming but still wasn’t at all ready. He now drives himself to school and it is the most bittersweet feeling I have ever experienced. I’m so proud of how well he did on his driving test but it’s a huge stomach and throat lump to know I’m not needed as much anymore. I know many of you have experienced this so you’ll know what I mean. That first real jump out of the nest. Celebratory and heart breaking at the same instant.
