A Word from Josh:
At the risk of getting off-subject, I've had a crazy week. I've had a gig every day except Wednesday which happened to be the same day that the city of Cleveland, Ohio had scheduled a big parade to celebrate the NBA Championship of their (and my) beloved Cavaliers... so I drove down to attend it along with both of my sons. That's seven hours down, seven hours there and seven hours back. Yep, that's how I spent my day off. It was fun being there as part of a crowd of more than 1.3 million people celebrating a piece of sports history. After the parade we got caught up in a panicked crowd running from the sound of gunshots at a downtown mall. That was pretty exciting too, it felt like we were in a Godzilla movie. Anyway, on Thursday I got caught up on sleep and then played a gig with my three-piece band at Lake Mills Town and Country Days (the same festival Cherry Pie will play at tomorrow). The show went smoothly but shorty after we finished I started experiencing an abdominal pain that got progressively worse until I was taken out of the park in an ambulance. It turns out that I have a kidney stone. As many of you know, kidney stones are not a serious health issue in the grand scheme of things, but in the short term they can be quite unpleasant to the point of being debilitating. Yep, that was me late Thursday night heading into Friday and tonight's show. I slept as much as I could and arrived in Oregon later than usual carrying a good supply of prescription painkillers. The medication proved to be quite effective as I played the show in relative comfort but it also zapped a lot of my energy. During the break a guy came up to me and said that I looked like I wasn't having any fun... "You look like I do when I'm at work," he added. Naturally the rest of band more than made up for my subdued performance with an exciting show worthy of the Cherry Pie tradition despite the fact that I seemed to play much of the second set with my eyes closed. John was his usual jocular self with the crowd. At one point he called up our friend Shane Sparby of the band Supertuesday and had the crowd contribute to a taunting voicemail. Never a dull moment.     --Josh
