so...I havent been around these parts for quite a while. Missed all the election bloodletting...the excitement over Shmilco...the solo record...the tour.


Gather round, gather round...time for tales from the edge. 


My son bought us two tickets to see Wilco in Irving in October. Wilco is our thing. We've seen three shows together in Dallas.


It was going to be a good night. He and I were going to take off work and really blow it out.


The day before the show (which was a Monday), I came down with a nasty sinus thingie/allergy attack/cold. Took off work early, went home and took some over the counter stuff (Dayquill). Didn't really help much, so I decided to go to bed early (for me) at 10:00. Tohok some Nyquill (eight hours later....should have been fine).


Didn't sleep well. Woke up around 4:00 (an hour early) feeling really thirsty. Got up, went to the kitchen for some water. Then the feeling started. Tingling in the legs and shooting up my body. Heard the blood roaring in my ears.


Next thing I knew, I was wondering "why is  my face cold? What am I lying on?"

 I raised my head and noticed a pool of black stuff on the floor. Black stuff dripping into a pool on the floor.

Wait a minute. It's dark. That isnt black...that's BLOOD.


I had a classic faint and fall. Landed face first and busted my nose and face.


Suffered an Orbital Floor Blowout Fracture (look it up...it's as nasty as it sounds).


Needless to say, Dylan and I missed the Wilco show. 

And that may have been my last show ever...hearing really suffering these days.


So...how was your Fall and Winter?

Good grief, Crow, you sure know how to make an entrance! Sorry to hear about your difficult spell, man. But I'm super glad to see you back in these parts.

Back in time for baseball - perfect timing. 


Hopefully your ears get back in shape at some point. 


I'm really thinking I have seen my last show...too bad it was that clusterfuck of U2 in the Cowboys stadium.
