I've gotten into the groove of things now. I get up and know essentially what to expect from the day. I have my tea and check correspondence like usual. I even [very carefully] drank a single beer yesterday without it being scary. I still woke up with a headache, but I think the beer and the headache are unrelated in this case. ;)
A couple of dates are coming up. The fundraiser in Dallas, OR at The Rabbit's Hole bar is on April 7th which is frighteningly close - only three weeks away. Thanks to John and Dana Gibson and their band Majik (Jai's rock band) for instigating that one.
The lineup, r so fais:
Kenny Lee and the Sundowners (blues)
There might be a brief jam in there for some people who want to perform in a less official manner. Use the contact form on my site to speak up if you'd like to do that.
The jazz-centric Portland fundraiser is on June 30th. Special thanks to Tom Robinson for heading up the committee to make that work.

It's me, Kevin, but with a brain tumor. Disclaimer: I have a very dry and twisted sense of humor. This is a scary situation. The jokes ("tumor humor") could be a little dark from time to time. I intend to keep this rather interesting for you, but if I get a "how could you SAY that?!?" response from you, know it's just, well, I hesitate to use "gallows" humor, but I don't have better phrase for it. Enjoy, and thanks for your support through this time.
