|Seriously, click that effing link in the preceding paragraph.|
Then David Card - hell yes THE Poor David - put this out on Facebook today:
A bit of background, Drunkards.
I'm a single mom.
Christmas is approaching.
I just today found out that my ex treated himself to a new cellphone, which he charged to my TMobile account.
Also, a couple of weeks after the holidays, I have to pony up for Precocious Daughter's Spring band trip to Corpus Christi.
And I'm late paying my credit card bill.
Can I afford two tickets to see (the relatively affordable) Shawn Phillips live?
Did I buy them anyway?
AW HELL YES.
|Hey, if Jerry Lewis says so...|
This is my Christmas, New Year's, Valentine's Day, and probably birthday present to myself.
I'm kind of hoping that Drummer Boy will be able/willing to accompany me on the day.
If not, I have a free ticket for any Dallas-area Drunkards who want to check out a really-super-good show by an awesome musician.
As for me...I'll be eating pork and beans for lunch for the next few months. You do what you gotta do.
As Shawn Phillips himself sang: It really doesn't matter if you know love's pattern.
I'll figure out how to pay the electric bill later.
