I'm embracing the seventies tonight. Other hotel chains use fancy words like "renovate" and "redecorate" but not Best Western. Like Captain loved Tennille, Best Western has a hankering for Santa Fe themed wall "art" and teal carpet it's not about to let go of.

Truth may be that I'm just bitter because I got spoiled by my room at the Marriot the last few days and had to leave town again sooner than I wanted to. Becky and I returned from our anniversary vacation just long enough for me to kiss the kids hello, then good bye again, and hop on a plane with Brian to Phillie...from whence I blog tonight. (That's right, I said "whence.")

In the morning I'm at Calvary Church in Souderton, Pennsylvania. I'm playing in their two church services then speaking to/hanging out with about forty musicians at a lunch/forum hosted by the church, then an evening concert.

That's a busy day. Better head to bed now...to my teal green and flower print bed.

I always have to turn down my teal and flower print bed...the pattern (not to mention the texure) does funny things to my eyes...and stomach.

Miss you.

Are you ankle-deep in shag carpet?

Well that bites. The life of a Huge Soft Rock Star! Ladies and Gentlemen it's not as glamorous as we all hoped! *gasp* *shock* *awe*

I am a fan of shag carpet. Shag carpets and oriental rugs that's what I love...ohh and the really bright really fuzzy bathroom mats...why am I talking about carpet? Oh wait that's right HRS brought it up.
Which by the way when are you gonna go by...HSRS instead of just HRS?

i used to have a rake for the shag carpeting in my room! The carpeting was dark blue and my furniture was painted lime green. my wallpaper was a flocked, raised daisy print in green and blue on a dotted white background. . ahh the 70s!!!!

enjoy your tacky decor!!! feel the power of the time warp.

Best Western... I have no idea how they stay in business. Even the shampoo bottles are seventies. Staying there makes me want to grow a mustache and drink scotch.

I think I've stayed in that hotel before. or at least one just as glamourous... bet you haven't stayed at one called The Bambi Motel? See I've got a one up you there unless you've been to Gainsville Florida.

Last night I stayed in a Travelodge in Oshkosh, WI and was offered "all the crack I could smoke in my lifetime" if I gave the intoxicated man in the lobby $2. Although it sounded like a pretty good deal, I passed.

Was said "intoxicated man" going by the last name Stuart by any chance or otherwise attached to a band you may happen to be on the road with?

My bad. I commented on the last post that I thought you should post about your wife, since it was your anniversary and all. To your credit, in my boredom I skimmed the archives and found a post about when you first met your wife (and her father...), a post about the wedding, and a post about the beauty of married sex (as opposed to the idea of a stripper for Jesus).

But I still think you should tell us a tiny snippet of how wonderful the anniversary was.
