Gulf Shores Show Tonight...President Day Sales...Daytona This Weekend

Wow...some DEEP fog this morning in Gulf Shores, Alabama...but the great news is...it's burnt off...the sun is screaming through a clear sky and it's going to be 80 for a high today!  Flip flop, shorts, sunglasses...appropriate stage wear for my show tonight down here with Brent Burns.



A lazy Thursday down here but...I did write another new song with Brent Burns as we are starting the pre-work on his next album probably a year from now or so.  Time to stack up songs and song ideas so that there will be enough new tunes to go back in studio and crank out his 12th or 13th or 14th CD...I've lost track.  I'm just glad for all the fun collabrations through the years...and I figure Brent's recorded mayb 40 songs we've written together through the years.  We're sort of like the beach poor mans edition of Lennon-McCartney...without the hair, the hits and the fame.  Fine by me.


Everyone I meet within this Trop Rock circle have a favorite which is always interesting to hear.  And we'll most certainly sing some of those through the years.  The funny one's get a lot of attention..."Ugly Early", "Retired", "JIm Cantore", Trailer Park Sexy" etc.  But I'm also proud of some of the more mainstream "beach" songs we've written including one my faves here you can check out if you'd like..."Towel On The Beach".  I'm looking very forward to sharing these tunes with our audience later this evening with Brent.



After that...lunch...relaxing by the pool overlooking a golf course, Happy Hour (a daily ritual down here) and dinner with my brother Gary and Kay overlooking the ocean.  It's pretty much a perfect 3-4 day run down here filled with sand and songs and friends and family.  Good work if you can get it folks.







Beads...and Mardi Gras trash.  My sister in Minnesota won't find any of those in the drainstorm as she freezes today in 20 degree temps.  Did I mention it's 80 down here?


Anyhoo...with Carnival...and Mardis Gras, and parades and beads and drinking...a lot of Mardi Gras trash shows up down here in places that have to be cleaned up.  Mardis Gras originated just a few miles from here over in Mobile.  So...let's blame it on those guys!  "Let The Good Times Roll"...but pick up you trash you party animals.



Have you noticed the ads?  Uh uh.


There's the Jimmy Carter "Peanuts" sale.


George Washington "wooden teeth" two for one special.


And of course the annual Bill Clinton "Buy One "Mattress Get Two Free Cigars"  sale.


Grab your discounts before it's too late and God Bless America.



I'm at a McDonald's right now...where...the Happy Meal box is missing stuff.  No more cheeseburgers, no more chocolate milk in hopes of getting kids to eat something healthy.  If I'm behind the counter and a kid complains?  I'm going to blame it on the "Hamburgler" stealing those items.



The world's largest cruise ship...the Royal Caribbean is big.  How big is it?  It has 20 restaurants on board.  It has a 10 story slide (major wedgies) and a robotic bar where you are served by a robot.  They just keep getting bigger and bigger.  How do they float those things?



Anyone else watch "skeleton" in the Olympics yesterday?  Sledding downhill?  Anyone else think..."now I could do that"?  Okay...just me.  Everytime I see that I think of sledding as a kid in my hometown of Montgomery City, Missouri.  You'd fly down hill...hit an iced log..and fly onto the frozen pond on that golf course that sat right across the road.  I got gold one year. 


I did enjoy the snowboard races...NASCAR on snow.  That's cool.  And I am most certainly rooting for our Women's Hockey team to get another shot at Canada as I have a co-writer over in South Korea right now...Rob Bellamy who's rooting on his sister who's on that team...Kacey.    C'mon Kacey!



Well first...this little show this evening with Brent Burns.  We're going to have a great crowd...and there are just a few more spots available if you want to come. 








Then tomorrow morning it's back to Nashville which will get me on my couch in time to watch the Dayton 500 go off on Sunday and then get prepped for a busy week coming up.


Hard to beat the beauty and the weather down here...and I certainly enjoy seeing so may friends we've made down here through the years.  Gets harder go back north every time.


Have a great weekend!
