Matt Got Fired

We just couldn't take it anymore. I mean, we tried, but that one chord that he missed in the first show... I mean, COME ON.

So we had to kick him out. Left him in Scranton, PA because that's the worst we could come up with.


I KID!!! I KID!!!

But the real story is almost as ridiculous.

James pulled into a Sheetz in Scranton, PA to stop and gas up and well... because Sheetz is THE BEST GAS STATION EVER. Matt walks up to me as I am purchasing my Green Tea and says "I have a monkey wrench."

I'm not even sure I actually responded as I pondered what in the world he was talking about.

He then said "I have a monkey wrench to throw into the equation."

AHHHHH Blondie catches up!

He continued to explain that his sister lives 5 minutes from where we were and wondered if our route on Monday would take us back up that way. We're spending a few days in NYC on our off time (not a bad life, huh??) and then our next show is in Watertown NY. So I got out the laptip did the ole "Drag the route the way you want it to go" in mapquest and ummm.... it was a 2 minute difference from the original suggested route!

So we left him there at the Sheetz! (Well... we waited on his sister's roommate to pick him up.) But seriously!!! He gets a last minute visit with his sister and his parents - and we're just gonna pick him up on our way up to Watertown on Monday! It couldn't have worked out more perfectly.

The best part was how confused David was when he came out of the bathroom. He wasn't in on ANY of the discussions. So he walked out into the parking lot and Matt was just standing there with his bags and guitars out...

Classic.

So we caught up on Lost tonight on the 28th floor of my mother-in-law's gorgeous apartment overlooking the Chrysler Building. And Panther has never been to the city before. But David lived here for a number of years. They are both out exploring - we get texts every few hours :)

Our hearts and thoughts and prayers are all still with everyone in Nashville. They need so much help. I just hear story after heartbreaking story. And then I hear story after story of the outpouring from volunteers. Makes me so proud.

Peace. Love. Fiddle.

First, with a big smile I say I love the little portion of your hair that is reaching for the sky in the picture : )

You know I have to imagine more hair proudly pointing up and turning into beautiful sculptures and sky scrapers : )

The WSMV benefit was awesome !! I wish you were on it !!! Many of your faves including Keith Urban were there and your own Trailor Swift donated $500,000 !!!! Vince Gill joked that she spends that much on doing her hair : )

I wonder if some of your sleep probs are from being uneasy about what has happened.

I had a dream last night that I was at a school that looked like a castle but it was abandoned and then I noticed I was in flood mud and heard a cat meowing and then there were dogs and cats to be rescued. They had on school mascot sweaters.

Every day I wake up thinking something is wrong and then I remember the flood.

So much of our lives washed away, but at the same time seeing people and churches and organizations pull together so much is very inspriring !!

I think God wants us to learn from everything we experience, and there are so many things happening now, I really hate the loss of life from the Gulf oil spill ( and the effects on so many jobs ) Haiti's people are still suffering greatly, and in addition to Nashville there are many cities around Nashville and all the way down to Memphis that experienced the same huge floods.

I remember last year that the same thing happened in James hometown and all across Iowa.

It's hard to imagine that anyone would love Opryland more than I do, but I feel certain you do !! You were here briefly to see the devastation and I wish you were hear to see the awesome recovery, but since you aren't we'll keep letting you know about everything.

With lots of soggy love : )
Your FFBF : )
