Nah. We're not geezers yet. Just fogies. My kids told me that. The only BRB member who's a certified geezer IMO is bf.

For me, when men talk openly about feelings, thoughts, confusion and just real stuff, it is just very sexy. I know so many who have not even contacted that part of themselves. If they haven't been there then how can they go there with me? How deep can the relationship ever go? It takes a strong man to look inside and at himself. It takes a strong PERSON to admit to confusion or maybe being "wrong". I try always, to look at what I can do to improve my character and I am actually learning a lot about stuff from you guys. I have had to really think about some of my unconscious beliefs and get rid of some of the ideas and prejudging I did not even know I had and I thank you all for that. Maybe I'll just skip Dr. Phil - nah, can't do it. I love him. But he doesn't run my life, he just provides the occasional insight and reality check.

My sister is being dragged through a very difficult divorce and is wanting to compromise in order to just get it over with. I told her that many, many people mistake kindness for weakness, compromise for weakness and try to take more advantage. I did not see my sister or her five children for 14 years because of this husband. She saw my daughter once - at my little brother's funeral for a few minutes when she was two. Her husband would not allow me to hug my sister as she sobbed at our brother's graveside. He screamed at me and she got more upset as we had a big scene next to the casket. Lots of people there,too. It was sad beyond words. She did what he said. To me, this is a time for NOT compromising. I don't know why I am sharing this, but that it was her birthday yesterday and I called and we talked about this. Her husband is manipulating her in the courts and keeping one of the kids and brainwashing him. He kept the house and she took 2 of the kids and could only afford a one bedroom apartment for the past two years. I think eventually she will get through and she DID choose to be with this person. In the end she will be an even stronger person. There will be someone who can really appreciate her goodness and kindness. If she can trust herself again.

Wanna see a he man go to my bands web site http://www.bluesrockit.com. I'm the long haired fool on the left leaning on my upside down bass. I did that so's my arm is pumped up. The songs on the site were recorded by us. We're heading into a studio to do 3 for the site. I'd stick the site on this post like others do but I'm a Utah hillbilly and I don't know how. I wanted to wait until the new songs were put in but we are talkin' he man's ain't we. Mind you, my muscles are for show, they don't do heavy work very well.

Click to the web site was automatic, I am so surprised. Believe when I say I'm a hillbilly. I feel so dumb and excited at the same time. Reminds me of my first "time" 35 years ago.

LoriLu, I just read your post before the two I laid down. I have never understood why people want to conrtol other people's lives. It's mostly husbands controling the wife. It makes me sick. To be an adult in the free world and yet confined behind invisible bars has to be the worst. Women control men but not by force or abuse. I have known men who beat up their wives and it is so sad. Then there are the break up cases where the men kill their wives. What a waste. We don't own each other and a marriage license doen't give anyone ownership. It truly breaks my heart when free people are confined. Criminals earn their confinement but love should not be a prison. WEak minded men who are so insecure, that's what I bleive they are. Weak men with no gonads. It makes me sad.

Handsome man convention! Very cool. Is that the new drummer? How is he working out cause I really like Utah. When I drove back from Denver many years ago we went through Utah and it is a beautiful state. I took a lot of pictures. There's a pic of me in way off topic with the sand rail graphics I painted, the guys are the owner, Bill, and painter, Scott. Learned a lot about automotive painting and clearing. They moved the business to Arizona.

Anyway, I wish I didn't know how many people are abused and controlled within relationships. Many of the women I know who were beaten and mentally abused got out of those particular relationships but then got in ones where the guys were users. They have said that this is a step up from getting beaten. I cannot agree with that rationalizing.

I see one of my past boyfriends at this jam and last night I saw things that I didn't see before when I had feelings for him and it wasn't too pretty. Not a good reflection on him as someone I could ever really respect. I realized how much I had grown in the past five years and that made me feel good. Funny, my daughter never liked the guy and friends told me to listen to your kids cause they see things as they are.

I am very thankful that my sister got out of that relationship but she lost so much. Her oldest son never got along, he was kind of a rebel, and so got sent away from the family at a very young age. Luckily, he is now 18 and getting married into a family that loves him and accepts him as their own. We lost time together and our kids didn't get to have their cousins and their aunts. Life is interesting. You learn how to survive and accept and then to strive for better. The alternative is not an option for me.

That is the new drummer in the photo. Last week he asked me, well told me, how well he is doing in the band. I honestly told him "no you're not." I told him, again, that his down beat was weak, he is not rolling enough off the snare, he's not crashing thru the changes with me on the solo's. He was shocked and afraid I'd get the old drummer to play the up coming gig. I told him that he's on for this show but if he makes us look bad he'd be gone. He confessed he's not listening to the cd's I gave him of our originals. I told him that I wrote the songs and I play thru one of the two cd's every morning plus at practice. He called me last Saturday and told me that I was right. He said he was listening to the cd's and following thru the lyrics with the sheets I gave him. Last Monday he was much better. More active on the drum kit than before and stronger kick bass. He'll work out but he ain't there yet. He plays an old style, 1950's style drumming. That doesn't really work with us. I like the shuffle beats and all but he simply has to kick harder and roll more. If it were all covers that would be easy but where we play originals, that's harder to get ahold of.

Interesting. Sounds like he's more motivated now. At least you were able to tell him exactly what was wrong and what he could do to make it right. Best of luck with that.

Last nights practice was good. Jim has come a long ways in a week. His beats were much more solid. He started in about how on the CD Tony does this and I told him that he's not Tony. I want Jim on the drums. Jim liked that. On one of the songs it starts in a real solid one two rock beat and Jim did that well but added a shuffle thing on the verse. It sounded really good, fun. I let him know how I enjoyed his addition to the song and that his drumming had come a long ways. He said he almost fell off his stool, a compliment from Rusty, wow. I told him he'll get the praises when he does the song right. We all add to the song, all four of us. I come in with the idea and everyone learns what I have and then starts adding their own ideas until the song is done, done in everybody's pieces. We have a new one that's done and being refined. It is so cool. This is Jim's first time participating in the way we get songs done. It took a couple of weeks for everyone's ideas to be tried and accepted or rejected. The finish product, hopefully, will be recorded on the 19th and put on the web site. I am so excited about the song, it really is cool.
