Things That Are Wildly Inappropriate:

Today's example of something that you should have the sense not to do? My Ex-wife of five (and change) years calls and announces that she is on her way to my house with her mother and grandmother to visit the kids. What kind of reality do you have to live in for this to be acceptable? I was floored. Too bad I was home, it would have really been grand had I already been out. Now don't get me wrong, I have no issues with my kids visiting their mother and her family; I just have issues with them doing it in my residence. I've told myself for a long time that nothing she does can surprise me and yet she always manages to find a way. Unbelievable.

Mark and Hot Apple PieOK, on to the happy news now. Friday January 27th was the night of a big event at the radio station where I work: a concert featuring opener Jack Ingram and headliners Hot Apple Pie. It was a great show! Jack Ingram is an incredible performer who likes to talk to the audience, and he treated our guests to an intimate acoustic set with his guitar and one of his band members (a rather freakish looking dude). It's official; after watching all of the guys play... I'll still play my guitar with fervor and pride but I suck in comparison. Jack was followed by Brady Seals and Co. for an hour's worth of smokin' music. Mark and Jack IngramOne of the highlights of the night for me was the privilege of taking Brady and Mark "Sparky" Matejka to and from their hotel. It's not often that you get to spend time actually talking to the performers; usually it's a quick and dirty thing because of everything else that is going on. Brady is a hometown boy, originally from Fairfield OH and is very down to earth.

Incredible musicians, all of these guys. As usually happens at these events, I was the man with the camera for the station, a rather fun job if I might say so. Pictures of the event will be posted soon on the Star website.
