All the cool kids will be there . . .

Here we are enjoying the Bill Mallonee concert last Sunday night. It's a shame; we have so many photographers in our group and nobody took pictures. John took 3 and I took 2. We have a total of 5!! pictures from that night! This is by far the best one. Sad. Oh, well. I guess it was all about the music that night. Hope you guys had as much fun as we did. See you after Easter.

Bill Mallonee

OK, for those of you who don't know the guy coming to do the concert next week, I thought I'd give you the inside scoop. You can read about him here.

Or, check out this video of Bill doing a song called "Life on Other Planets"

Finally, for nerdy lyrical people like me, here are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs - this one is about the Dust Bowl:


Written by Bill Mallonee

yeah i remember the dark clouds
raining dust for days on end
blew all the earth out to california
and just left us here with the wind
in desperate times you know everybody's part
but it's your own lines you're like to forget
'til what you were meets what you've now become
grins and says "hey, haven't we met"

lost my firstborn that winter
and my wife on the first day of spring
and so i poured my sweat into the earth
yeah to see what that harvest would bring
and i remember howling fury
just like a plague of locusts
egypt's punishment for sins of pride
is that now what has come over us

how much of this was meant to be
how much the work of the devil
how far can one man's eyes really see
in these days of toil and trouble

honey we're all resplendent
yeah honey we are all thrift store
i'm like a wino with a twenty dollar bill
yeah forever and eternally yours
i can make you promises
if you don't expect too much
yes and i will run the distance
if you'll please please excuse my crutch

how much of this is failing flesh
how much the course of retribution
my my how loudly we plead our innocence
long after we've made our contribution
