Hey Flower...
Figured I'd drop by and wish you a VERY HAPPY EASTER... My livingroom smells like a honey blossom and believe it or not it's actually warm here in the valley..
The rain came in last night but right now the sun is out and it's in the mid 50's headed up to a possible 65.... This is a change that has been long over due.. the catch is that it'll be in the 30's by tonight...
I hope that your day is a great one and I hope that no matter what you do you will enjoy yourself.. I really enjoyed our chat.. You can make me giggle and that my friend is a real talent...
Sending you all of my best wishes and a bunch of love...
((Love-n-Hugs))

Happy Easter, Will ... I know you're out there somewhere planning a new fundraiser or something as your good heart is known for ... Well, you done did it, din't ya ... Made me watch "Searching for Sugar Man" ... It was fan-frickin'-tastic! EPIC - Unforgettable! AWESOME!... I was dog dead tired on my feet, hot and sweaty, physically ill after yesterdays Easter Egg Hunt for the children, set up, throwing out 2000 eggs, serving up hot dogs, lemonade, apple juice, sometimes offering up "lemon juice" (a freudian slip, lol;) put away, pack up and so and so forth but it was all worth it ... Recently had ROKU set up on my TV so couldn't get the DVD player to work on either one of the TV's and hadn't set up Netflix on the ROKU ... thank goodness I have a 22" screen on my desktop and a nice leather chair ... I watched the musical documentary which I'll call a "rockumentary" SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN ... it was unbelievable!...

The man is humble, smooth, shy, doesn't take credit for much and a LEGEND! Why he didn't make it in his own day in America back in the late 60's early 70's does not register with me ... I remember my cool cousin in her 60's introduced me to Underground Houston and told me of him and his political views and my boyfriend who was 10 years older than I had him on reel to reel in the 70's ... I apparently didn't understand the gravity of Apartheid even though I was involved in the 60's and 70's movement ... Nonetheless, his music is incredible ... THANK YOU to Craig Bartholomew and Stephen "Sugar" Segerman for seeking him out ... and his ever so faithful friend, Emerson, I think was his name for standing by him ... I have no good words to say for Clarence Avant who gave a tasteless interview on behalf of, I believe, Sussex Records and I believe he said he sold 6 (SIX) albums of Rodriguez ... Can you imagine getting a milk carton and seeing your father's face on the side of it as the oldest daughter found? Goodness, thank goodness she saw it and responded to it!... But as it was told, he is not rich in monetary value due to the possibility of "piracy and bootlegging" but other people are rich, SAD! But, Rodriguez is RICH in other ways! The daughters were brought up right by the man and he has qualities that mirror my daddy in so many ways ... he was and is a very cool dad! WOW! Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU, for introducing me to this talented man who worked in blue collar in jobs that, as his daughter described, nobody wanted to do! He self described, ie., construction, demolition, restoration ... Daughter said she saw him once carry a refrigerator on his back, come home with specks of paint on his clothes, cleaned out homes and bottom line did the jobs that nobody else wanted to do ... I would have loved to be at the 3/5/98 concert where his opening line was "Thank you for keeping me alive!" ... Man, I got the goosies and YOU MADE ME CRY, Will ... dang it! I'll get you my, pretty! LOL ... Thanks again ... This is a DVD to buy and watch and watch again ... Thanks for making me spend for money, LOL ... Godspeed to you, my friend ... So he's the transcendentalist of music, huh? Henry David Thoreau is my other hero. I now have a new hero to my list! Thanks so much! Peace and Love, brother! FC <3

Good afternoon, Rose Bud ... it was sunny this morning and beautiful ... somehow, the clouds came in and now they're saying, thunder boomers later ... Well, the "whether" man said that all week long but nothing of the sort happened, lol ... I had so much fun laughing, snorting at Josie and you, talking and whatever else we did last night! It was FUN! Goodness, my sides were splitting especially after Jo, hahahaha ... I slept like a baby til about 1020 ... must have needed it ... Thanks for making me laugh ... not much do that, lol ... Happy Easter to you and the kids and grands ... Luvya big ~ FC <3

Same here my dear Flower-Child, festival season and automobile issues among other things tying me up down or any which way but loose.

Rodriguez sold out in Atlanta already, but that's a good thing since I'm glad he's finally making some money!
