    Willie and Family take the stage tonight in Hiawassee Georgia at 7pm. It's sold out, about 1.5 thousand seats, and we can't wait to see this Legend. First time for me. Just hope that the 30mph winds and snow doesn't scare him away. :eek:)

    After smoking a couple of joints, Willie won't be afraid of anything.

    It was a great show! At 78 he still has the "voice" and after he stumbled through the opening song, Wiskey River, it seemed his fingers loosened up and his guitar playing became superb. An Ameican Icon. He was selling t-shirts that were OD green and said "Willie Nelsons First Aid Kit" and had a big print of a Cannibas leaf.

    The last time I saw Willie Nelson, I got paid to be there being part of the security ... I hope I don't ever have to watch that again, he was so stoned he wasn't sure if he was in Texas, Illinois, or Afganistan ... I knew his songs better then he did, that night anyway ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    And he looks like a dirty, greasy little old man. Looks like he needs a good bath.

    Good song writer, good person, but he talks rather than singing most of his songs and has for years. I wouldn't go see him if they paid me. But then, he probably wouldn't come to see me either.

    There are laws in this country I don't agree with, but I don't just go 'round breaking them and then attempt to capitalize on it. I guess he thinks he's above the law???

    For that reason, he's not anyone I look up to - and I cannot bring myself to give him any of my money. Imagine if everyone started ignoring laws on a wholesale basis. Wouldn't take long for us to have a third-world quality of life. We seem to be headed that way. Thanks, Willie; you've set a great example....
