isn't this the cutest little logo you have ever seen??? it's from a website that is from somewhere in europe (i think it's swiss) and there are a bunch of little club-type logos... dont know if ZURO is a place or just the name of a club or maybe even a bad word! (anyone know???) its perfect for the october journal.... maybe i will make t shirts with it for my family, woo hoo!!!!

i am in the process of updating the photos page on my website, and will be adding more and more live shows and radio shows and some other things as well... if you have any requests, please let me know and i will try and put stuff up that you might want to see. this IS a fan driven website, you know, and i want you to be happy!!!!

last nights gig at the mainstreet songwriters showcase was alot of fun. good music, good vibes, etc.... it was so much fun that after they kicked us out (well, we WERE the only ones left there still talking....) garret had to play us a song that he wanted us all to hear and voila, an impromptu jam on the sidewalk!

look at this little crowd!


rusty came by to support the music and hang out!

thanks garret for a great night of music!

yeow, it's beautiful here in the eastern sierra and i wanted to share the changing of the leaves with you... the aspens

leaves in the pond, with the reflection of the trees...

it's almost time for the horses and mules to be taken down to a lower elevation. i was happy to have been able to go visit with them before they leave!!!

it also snowed here overnight and continues to rain at the lower elevations.... fall is in full swing and father winter is on his way!!!!

yeow october has been BUSY!!!! sorry i haven't reported much and don't have much in the photojournal department to share.... but, scoop is that tisa and i are having a garage sale of sorts... the "soak with che and tisa" shirts that are on sale on the website (buymusic link) will be given away to every person paying to get into fitzgeralds to see us tonight. if you already have one, think of a friend you might want to give one to, and don't forget that we also have some kids sizes left!!! (holiday season IS coming up) if you would like more than one shirt, we will sell you them to you for only $5 at the show tomorrow night! we have limited quantities of t's too, so once they are gone, they are GONE!!!!!! get to the gig early to see our friend martine locke, who will slay you with her awesome songs, voice and guitar playing!!!!!! xoxo
