Oh when the Saint comes marching in...
It's been a great huge week! Three Bobstar sightings, friends in from out of town. Just as our longtime (since childhood!) friends return to Boston, 'Saint of Circumstance" comes to town from Ohio!
I met Saint for the first time in cyber space on the now defunct Ratdog Conference board. We were all going to be in Europe for Ratdog and so we made plans to meet in 3-D in Cologne, Germany. We met in the lobby of the Koln Holiday Inn and pretty much stuck together for the rest of the week. Saint had already been to a few previous Eurodog shows and had made connections with other Americans on tour. Thanks to him we met some other DogLovers along the way. The following Summer, we met up again in the UK. Saint only made it to the London Ratdog show before he switched gears and ended up following the Rolling Stones instead. Thanks to his sudden change in plans, we met one of our darling Robins when she was offered Saint's space in the van that a group of us hired to get around the UK in. Scott & I have Saint to thank for being key (in one way or another) for us having met some awesome folks.
Anyhow, I was too far behind in some things and wondered how to get out of going to the Roger Waters show last night. Everyone should have my problems. And then poof! Saint dropped an e-mail saying that he was in town- great timing as I knew Scott would be delighted to have Saint join him for the show- and I could be home attending to stuff that needed attending to. I had a little time to visit with Saint before the guys left for the show. He's doing great- looks the same, hopefully, we'll get a Ratdog related show (Where's Kenny Brooks this week?) or something before Saint leaves town in a few weeks.
