Family. That’s what it’s all about.

The band’s last show of 2017 featured Scott Hobin on drums! He sat in for his dad. I’m happy to report that Shawn is doing much better. He beat the upper respiratory infection and was able to endure a visit to the hospital where they took a look at his heart. I’ll spare you the gruesome details. Suffice it to say that the TV camera saw the inside workings of valves and veins, and all is AOK. I can verify those results having spent New Year’s Eve with Shawn and our wives. Awesome time. It was great to end 2017 on a high note.

More family news. Ours just grew exponentially.

I am the happy patriarch of a rather large brood. I am rich with all kinds of kids. From birth, adoption, or by marriage, it’s all the same to us. We’re just family. And that family just exploded in size with a visit from one of our kid’s birth moms. She and her awesome family spent the week with us, way up here in the cool, cool North. Automatically, naturally there is a bond. So much love, so much fun, so many stories to share. We are one very large and happy family.

That is how we ended 2017, and how we press forward into 2018. More music, more fun, more family, and lots of love to share.

God Bless us all, each and every one.
