Reading and posting on LJ improves my mood. I should remember this. I miss you all, even though I see a lot of you on the Facebook and the Twitters.

Getting out to see people improves my mood. I should remember this. I had a FABULOUS time at the State Fair last night. First I took pictures of farm animals and stuff. Then I watched a set & a half of Martin Zellar. It was actually 3/4 of the Gear Daddies because both Nick & Randy were there. Then [livejournal.com profile] 7thstranger & I walked & chatted as I took more pictures and I ate some cheese on a stick.

Finding out that a friend has died does not improve my mood. [livejournal.com profile] gingerpook lost her battle with cancer this morning. You'll be missed Ginger.

Here’s to running with the crowd, playing music loud. Here’s to life, here’s to love, here’s to being free.

I'm going to hit the State Fair again tomorrow, 'cuz I wanna go see this guy:

Martin Zellar

Martin Zellar & the Hardways will be playing on the Heritage Square free stage at 6:30 & 7:45!
I'll be meeting [livejournal.com profile] 7thstranger there, and any of the rest of you who decide to come out to see the awesomeness of Martin.

As I was denying turning 40 earlier this year I had an utterly depressing realization. I'm so old that I've now been a fan of Martin, first in the Gear Daddies and now w/the Hardways, for half my life! When I first discovered the Gear Daddies I immediately fell in love. Then, they were going to be coming to Fargo. (well, Moorhead, technically.) I couldn't go see them because they were playing at Kirby's Bar and I was only 20! But damn, the man still looks as good now as he did twenty years ago!

So tomorrow I hit the fair again, this time sans Rick. There will be more deep-fried pickles, Martin Zellar, and photos taken of carnival rides lit up at night.




HERE’S TO EVERYONE

These are troubled times we live in now
I know we can hold our own somehow
We’ll move on, we won’t forget
Things have changed for sure
But it’s all right
Everything’s all right

Here’s to letting go of fear
All that we hold dear
Here’s to you, here’s to me
Here’s to everyone

You’re uneasy about the road ahead
Harbor fears and doubts inside your head
You’re feeling lost, feeling unsure
Longing for the way thing were
All right
Everything’s all right

Here’s to going out with friends
Laughing hard again
Here’s to life, here’s to love
Here’s to memories

Here’s to running with the crowd
Playing music loud
Here’s to life, here’s to love
Here’s to being free

Here’s to letting go of fear
All that we hold dear
Here’s to you, here’s to me
Here’s to everyone

Here’s to going out with friends
Laughing hard again
Here’s to life, here’s to love
Here’s to memories

I know, I'm a slacker who hasn't posted Gear Daddies pics yet...

I'm still working on sizing & cropping them & stuff. That takes a while when you have over 200 of them! *grin*

But, here's a little bit of a teaser for you of some of the pictures:

Martin:


Nick:


And 3 more under the cut for any heathens on my flist who don't worship the Gear Daddies... )
