I need to get it together...

Yes, the big 80's Metal Reunion happened - and you can catch my YouTube video by searching "Billfest" then looking for "Another Thing Comin'" performed by Steel Rose, Black Widow and Silent Knight. I will post all kinds of pictures in the next few days. It was very surreal and made me somewhat melancholy to see people that had such an impact on my life when I was in my 20's. I will be 45 in August - and while I'm happy to be aging, it still hurts somewhat to let go of such a wonderful past that was surrounded by some of the best musicians I have ever known. On the Greyhound front, we babysat Dash last week - the big goof snuck upstairs, grabbed a bag of cat food, and proceeded to munch on it in the master bedroom :) We loved having him - he has an open invitation to come stay with us whenever he wants. The Bro-Mance between Smokey and Butler is heating up - or I should say, its heating up for Butler - I will post that picture very soon. Butler is my Katrina kitty that thinks he owns the place. And while he pretends to be irritated by Smokey, we seem to be catching him rubbing up on Smokey and sleeping near him :)

The return of Heavy Metal

So, for those of you who don't know, I was the lead singer of a heavy metal band for 16 years. What a life! About 100 of us are gathering in Charleston, WV to hold a concert and fundraiser for a fellow musician who passed away recently. It should be very interesting to see these people after 25 years - all of these men had hair longer than mine, and actually, they wore more make up than I ever did!!!! So, be prepared for the pictures to be posted when I get back. Here is a pic of the band back in the day - can you tell which one is me, the girl?!?!?!?!
