Texas A&M Commerce and The Red Chair in the Street

We played an afternoon show at "The Club" on Texas A&M Commerce's campus today. It is a BRAND new facility for students and is a really cool place. They have a stage built in complete with lights and sound... cafes and little stations for food. And today there was a huge high school bilingual competition going on. So there were hundreds of kids just hanging out! It was really fun. They had ALL kinds of competitions... music... plays.... poetry.... pretty cool stuff!
The show was great, and Rick, our wonderful contact who took GREAT care of us, introduced me to some new green tea with Goji berry that I LOVED! MMmmmm.

Kathrin is an exchange student from Germany and was one of the judges for the (take a guess!) German competitions.


Fellow musicians :) They were competing in the music categories... in spanish! And they totally rushed the stage and did the "We're not worthy" bows during "Devil". I <3 them.


My first wallet signing. :) It was a fancy one too! I may need to reevaluate my big ole ugly wallet... hers was adorable. And now it says "Peace, Love, Fiddle" YAY!


Another one of the awesome guys taking care of us all day. He was running sound, loading and unloading equipment, making sure we had everything we needed. He was all-around awesome!


Some actual college students!!! :) There were a lot of students at the show, too. But the high schoolers made up most of the crowd.


And AFTER the show.... we headed on to Frozen Fire Films in Dallas to do a photo shoot. It was SO much fun!!! We did this one shot in this awesome red chair...
Travis, the photographer, said "What if we did some shots in the red chair in the middle of the street with the skyline in the background?" We were all game... but it was a TEAM effort! There was traffic... it was a little crazy. We were having to do it when the traffic was stopped at a light. Stacy was on the corner making sure nothing unexpected was coming, Randy had the reflector, Travis had the camera, Miguel had the chair, and James was helping me with the fiddle and the video camera!!!
We'd run out - Miguel would put the chair in the street, we'd get a few shots and then have to strike it all to let the cars pass.... and then we'd do it all over again until we got everything we needed. It was like an action movie :) Well... not really.... only in my head.... but it was really funny.... AND exciting. I loved it.

I can't wait to see all the pics - especially the ones in the street! We bought a hard drive tonight at Walmart to download them all tomorrow. The files are huge so it will take a TON of space. These guys do such great work though. It will be REALLY nice to have some new pics!

I have to get up on 3 hours for TWO shows! :) Life on the road!

Peace, Love, Fiddle, and GOODNIGHT!

Hay : )

Thank you for your sweet comments about missing me; I have now been missed by one of the sweetest and most beautiful stars in the Universe !!

I was real real busy for a few days; I actually got an email from the President's Director of Communications regarding my efforts for health care justice; so lots of follow up going on; my health is hangin in, I'm sort of always on the bubble because of my history of cancer and stuff, but life is thrilling on the bubble because it helps create great appreciation for our creator's love and every moment we are given on earth.

Speaking of appreciation, I feel compelled to mention that one of the many things I looooove about you is your great love and appreciation of everyone and everything !!

Soooooo : ) I communicated with your GPS Jeeves and hopefully the Hawaiian Tropic Bikini Team got the special wardrobe to you for the photo shoot. They were sort of hesitant because after I told them how beautiful you are they became very concerned that you will make their models look ho hum - hum drum.

I would have told them that was like totally for sure, but in a rare moment I kept my mouth shut, and after Jeeves mentioned going to Vic Secret for help Hawaiian Tropic saw the light and caved in and put a rush delivery, and we were even told the shipping costs were minimal because so is the apparel : ) : )

Unfortunately Hawaiian Tropic did not have a wardrobe for James, Miguel, and Hootie. We are all really torn up about that : ) : ) : ) : )

I'm so happy your tour is going great, all us farm boys are taking courses to teach us how to miss you, and at the same time enjoy the fact that so many people around the nation are greatly loving and enjoying you like we do !!

Natalie Stovall, as enjoyable as freshly blooming flowers on a beautiful spring day !!
