"We're not very good, but we're pretty fucking Awesome"

It may sound silly, but this is my new band. I have no doubt that some time in the next few years, this motley crue and maybe a Diablo or 2 will make music in the form of a "band". I believe in the old school way of forming a band - get a great name (check, thought of it myself, bitches), get some good lookin' band members (check), get some big-motherfucking-mariachi hats (check), take a picture. Check ese'. Next = music.

I play drums. I am also what is often referred to as the "heart and soul" of a band. I don't write many lyrics, but the ones I do write will make you cry. hard.

Want to know more about the band and it's super awesome members? Stay tuned. Awesomeness to ensue.

making blue-room music! (photo Donna Day)

My father in law, the honorable Billy Stoops, has been chillin' out with us in la Casa Sayulita for the last 2 weeks. He is one of the coolest cats I have ever known, and God-damn, I feel lucky to call him family. He not only had a major hand in making my favorite girl in the world, my wifey Andrea - he also has all the love and affection my son, his grandson, has to offer. Billy is a musician, guitarist and singer, but what he really plays are your heart-strings with all the love and affection he gives to all he knows. We are over-flowing with his kindness, support and wonderful guidance that we all learn from. He is leaving in a few days, and though we are sad, we are already planning his next visit, and the bright future we all have together as the most important unit - a family.

As I sit here at Command Central watching and listening to my wife deal with some of our wedding clients, I find myself amazed. Though I'm well-known to be quite fascinated by the magic cave penguin that is my Andrea, some moments... I dazzle even deeper. I slide.

She is juggling about a million facts and figures, minutia to some, the dazzling details to some lucky bride blessed to be working with my in-house wedding planner. She has just finished an hour phone call with one Bride-2-be, and is right back into it with this next ear-full of wants and wants-not, and ... she keeps it together, does not show any disdain, nor pain for what she is being put through - instead she generates calm and confidence in her Brides, and truly has it all together and in control. So cool. She looks real pretty too while she does it, I'm staring at her right now, she can't tell, but boy. She is beautiful.
To see her son look at her is a whole 'nother bag of awesomeness. He just loves to love her and all her glory, He lives his every little moment for the next time he will see her, and shows that love when she enters his space. He is just like his Dad, 'cept Dad should remember more often to cheer every-single-time his lovely wife walks into the room like his Boy does - God knows Andrea deserves it... Old guys forget sometimes, and shouldn't.

What was I saying? Oh yeah. Andrea is awesome.
just one moment, in a million moments she does something that makes me love her even more.

My wife most awesome, and her love cult
