Oh Dotsie, Yes, LOL kids are so much "interesting times". That's what they are... a Counterweight Continent Curse
Children have the ability to do things which are fascinating in a totally controlled environment and still scare the Crap out of you IRL. I remember driving home on a nice summer day with my just under two year old son, not a care in the world sort of mulling over an idea for dinner when I looked over and my genius had gotten out of the carseat and was almost HANGING out of the window... wind in his hair... we are speeding along at 55 mph... ON A BRIDGE... in Mixed traffic. I almost had a heart attack. He was just out of arms reach and I managed, somehow, to grab him by the diaper and stay in my lane. Good Times. Two small ones at once would have killed me, or one of them. Mine were 8 years apart which is worse in its own way.
Raptor, I hope that Gordian Knot gets at least slightly untangled for your peeps. I cannot imagine performing and then having a Huge bill thrust at me. Ack.
I had the perfect picture of the Ogg crew from one of the books... They could say whatever they wanted about each other, but if a Non-Member said anything, the silence would spread and that poor lackwit would suddenly have the Entire Ogg Clan's Fixed attention
. I would not want to be those Con organisers when Your clan gets a hold of the books.
I imagine there were a few too many Extravagant meals, gambling (it was Vegas Baby), when what they needed was an accountant like mine who is very prim and proper following them around saying "NO" a lot. Possibly even a house payment just came to mind, like getting someone out of arrears to the tune of $$$$
EGADS, I have been studying Dodger a bit much and the mind wanders. LOL
eff off always seems to go across well tina

@ my "guy" problem, Great advice, he IS a Dick, and Misogynistic Passive-Aggressive Shall be used in my reply one day. It bugged me and then the more I thought about it I realized that these guys have not been able to get a singer who
#1: Can Sing
#2: Is Younger than they are (We are talking 60 to 60-something) (Primps her 52 year old self) Not Shabby at all.
#3: I hear a lot of reminiscing and shaking of heads whenever I nail a song down, as they remember the ones who couldn't.
I don't care if this really goes anywhere, I love to sing, and sing well. Nothing better than Belting out a song that noone expects you to BELT OUT!! Darn it, as long as I am "somewhat Larger" than the super skinny "snakes" on the Telly, I could use Perdita's self-harmonizing. I expect to play out a time or two and see how, and if, they can carry the PA and gear while still being able to play. LOL
