  I always say I am getting back and don't....... ha! Sorry. Busy is good, and with the weather, I have not stopped. Took "me" time, which was really needed. Catching up has to happen soon, though. Just have not been feeling good. There has been a lot of things going on, too, that I just keep my yap shut on. Not worth having an opinion, and I don't have time to drop what I am doing. Well, I probably do, but I don't want to. Serious. This is how I got behind. I need 3 days of no other distractions, at least, lol...

  Grape & Wine starts this weekend... was supposed to go to the Rockpile tonight, but the reason why I was going isn't happening. SO, instead of getting up at 4 am, I stayed in... and with tomorrow being the hubby's birthday, I made some plans already. Tomorrow is a multiple birthday thing happening at the Rockpile, so that seems to be the thing to do. I need live music. It's what I thrive on.

  That brings me to something I really need to touch on... because you could probably could say I suffer from a form of depression and the only thing that takes that away is the shows I go see. I hate throwing that word around and honestly, the term "mental health" is always (or so it seems) thrown around entirely too much, as well. How I feel isn't important all the time, but what is, is the love that comes from the music & its melody makers. That keeps me sane.......

  Before I do this again, I may need to rest up... so I will talk to you later......

7 Sept. 2018:

  This is the month fall is right around the corner, but it has been seriously warm. To the point my allergies usually associated with summer are still a pain in my nose... and sinuses... and throat... and, well, if you have allergies, you know what I am talking about...

  I have Livestock this weekend....... and it all starts tonight.. at Taps on Queen, in Niagara Falls. This is also the month (end of it) that the NMAs are going on (being held in St. Catharines this year). A flurry of activity going on with the CCMAs in Hamilton, too......

  ....... not to mention shows galore to check out.

I just wanted to drop in quick, and let you know it'll be a busy weekend..... and I hope to update by Sunday or Monday. Yeah, I say it, but I rarely do... however, this time I will try.....

  There is limited time for me these days, and I am fighting a few *where'd-that-ache-come-from" issues. I know you don't want to hear it, but I ain't lyin' to you... the way the weather has been has truly fupped me duck major....

   Hopefully, I don't wear myself out too much, and talk to you soon..... in the meantime, get out and support your local music scene......
