Hear Us Roar

What's that saying about how behind every good man there's a good woman, or something to that affect? Well, this here group of girls definitely falls into that category.

What do we have in common? I could turn it into a contest and if you guess, you could win some of Wonder Dawg's crap he's trying to get rid of. Nah..

These here ladies are the better halves of 5 of the 6 Grascal Dudes. (One of them is wise and is unmarried). You got Susanne who belongs to Jamie,the left handed gi-tar player; Myrna (or "Meerna" as I like to call her) who belongs to the banjer player, Dave; Mrs. Smiff, Andrea, belonging to the mandolin guy, Danny; and Ginger, wedded to the fiddler, Jimmy.

This was the first time in the three years the group has been together, that all of the wives had been at one spot. Ginger and I, both being mothers of three, had never even met before Thursday. Crazy.

Actually, none of us have actually seen our respective spouses for more than 5 minutes the last three months with festival season being in high gear, recording, Fan Fair and all that jazz. We're all smiling cause we're loaded on crack from trying to keep our respective abodes functioning, looking after kids, working, etc. by ourselves. It ain't for the faint of heart. Shows like Thursday night's at the Ryman make the blood, sweat and tears worth it. When the second cd Long List of Heartaches is released on August 29 on Rounder and everybody loves it...it will be worth it, too.

I keep wanting to make that earring of mine go back where it belongs. What is up with that?

Your earring makes you look like a pirate.

Kate O' said...

Yes! on the pirate earring. Very trendy right now. Very Jack Sparrow.

If Kate says I'm trendy, then so be it. She should know what's trendy and what isn't, cute little thang she is (yet another one I love to read that I didn't get the chance to meet Thursday night.)

Thanks for the heads up! We are quite likely moving to Nashville,(soon)and I am so looking forward to the live music possiblities.

Found you on Suburban Turmoil.

Love your blog!

Dang, look at you all out and about and stuff. Is this the same Sista Smiff who used to anonymously pseudonomously hide and make those wonderfully snarky comments about her neighbors?

I'm glad you've emerged from the shadows and that you're still fearless in your posting.

You go, girlfriend! Wallflower no more.

Hold your horses there, Uncle Cee...This was the same night I was out on the town at the Blogger Shindig. I resumed wallflower status the next day.

Congrats, You're a winner! And winner of some really good crap from WonderDawg - for correctly identifying the group of girls. Contact me offline as I'll need a mailing address.

And the quote goes, behind every successful man is a surprised woman.
