Oh Ruthie, I'm sorry. I have had my share of pets and all I can say is it never gets easier when we lose them.

I am not sleeping. I've been reading today's post on here.
It's sad around here. My sweet little ferret, Billy, a.k.a. BillyThe Kid, won't be with us much longer. Billy is 7&1/2 yrs old, elderly for a ferret. He has serious heart problems and is losing his battle for life.

Billy has been a joy to have around. He made me laugh everyday. I know it's a matter of days now and I am going to miss him so much.




sorry to hear that. Losing a pet stinks. "Billy the Kid". Cool name.

Hang tough, babe.

Hope everyone has a great day. Just trying to keep in the loop. Got my tickets yesterday for April 6 and 7. I ended up with great seats, row C and D. I had tried on the presale and as usual came up with back of orch, so I waited until Saturday and called on the phone. Got right through and came out of it pretty good. Can't wait.

Sorry, I won't have a chance to catch Levon on St. Pat's Day; (my wife's b-day), that's our traditional ABB weekend, but I'm sure he'll be a treat for those that are going. His voice is finally back and his band is excellent. I've had the fortune of catching a few of his Rambles over the last couple of years and they were great. Now that he's decided to include some of the great Band classics, I'm sure it will be blast at the Beacon.

I really miss not being able to hit all the shows in the City like I use to. It's OK down in Norfolk, but there's nothing like the City. If you get a chance, check out the Jammys this year too.

Have a great day!

TR

Ruthie I'm so sorry to hear about your pet. It's so tough to watch a dear critter in their declining years.

Good morning folks. I got a scare this morning! I got a call from the Beacon Theater telling me that for the Friday night show, Virgil absolutely has to be in a wheelchair. Well, stupid me, when they asked if he was going to be in a wheelchair I said no. They informed me that he has to be in one because that ticket is for wheelchair only. GEEZUS!! I didn't know that. I told them that he is an amputee and that if possible we can get a wheelchair for him. They said they'd have to "check into it". I just received a call back from them saying that it's all good, but he has to be on those crutches. ROFL!! Ummm....that definitely won't be a problem. hehehe But those tickets won't be any good without him there. So...he HAS to go to NYC with me. HAS TO!! I really think the fates are against me for this trip. It seems the closer we get to this shindig the more things happen to set me back. Just when I had the bread saved up to go, I get hit with a huge electric bill. Then when I get it saved back up, I was unable to use my debit card for the plane tickets, so I used the dough for more bills. UHGGG!!!! Now, I MIGHT have the cash tomorrow, but I can't be sure. I swear I'm gonna be in NYC on March 30 & 31 even if I gotta hitch-hike!! Ok, sorry folks. Rant over. I'll be in my tent.

Hello Hawkers, just wanted to drop in and check out the vibes in here. Sorry to hear about the lose of Billy the Kid. I have a little poodle named Bogey and I am dreading the day when his time to travel to the Rainbow Bridge comes.

Prayers for you and the little guy.

Oh my goodness Mitzi, sending you positive vibes that all that stressful stuff gets outta the way for you. I know you will be in town, I just know it, I CAN FEEL IT!!

Hi Tyler,and everyone else in JHawke land.

Ruth,I'm sorry to hear about Billy.

Mitzi,hang tough.You WILL make it here.

Dad,you mentioned NYC.I had the impression you were on the island.Am I wrong,or are you originally from the city?BTW,I'm in Astoria to be precise.

Susea,I never have any luck with the Melody Tent.Actually it's the schedule I never have luck with.Never seems to be a good show while I'm on the Cape.Susan was one week before I got there one year,one week after the next.

Yes Bob, it can be hit or miss at the Melody Tent. It's a 90 min drive for me so if I see someone on the schedule I plan it and book a room in advance.

Hello JHawkers! Quick post before I head out for ??? Company shutting down due to weather conditions here (still haven't dug out from last week!) and the boss is kicking me out.

Ruthie - I am so sad to hear about you Billy!! I'm a pet owner (the Lola of lolasdeb) and would be heartbroken if something happened to my girl - they truely do become our kids and members of our family. Hope time helps ease your current sadness (and I'll say a prayer for Billy because I do believe pet's need prayers, too).

Budha - very cool .... you get to catch Levon!!! Enjoy! (always have loved the Band)

Bob - just posted a shout out for John's of Bleeker in the NYC Pizza thread based on advise of 'one who knows' LOL (thanks for this tip)

Eileen - getting closer to that cuervo with a corona chaser!!!

Mitzi - Glad to hear you got things resolved re: the Beacon tix!!! And I'll be sending Little Daddy vibes down south hoping to get Virgil to NYC. Sorry to hear about the hassles getting the plane tix together - am saying my prayers that this all works itself out for you. You MUST be there - I think meeting you is one of the major things many of us are looking forward to!

susea - howdy sister...what is this melody tent you speak of? (this is melody tent as opposed to mitzi's tent...)

Eric - I see others are as amazed by the Santana/Clapton treasure! yummy!

Tyler - hope all is well with you and Debi...stay safe!

~waving~ to piacere, DAF, Barb, Sang, rainy, DZ, and all you other JHawkers - I am being evacuated!

Just a quick check in. Had a half day today, so i got to get out at around 11:20. Kind of proud of myself because some of my friends were doing stupid stuff but I was able to be clear minded and was responsible enough to not doing anything bad.

Mitzi Its glad to hear everything will be ok.

Dad- How are your sons doing in basketball?

Sue- Gush hasnt gotten back yet so I dont know how he is doing.

Eric- Still enjoying those shows, Im gonna upload them all to my Ipod tonight.

T-Hope all is well with you.

Waving to everyone else, Barb, Rainy, DZ, Ruthie, Budha,Bob, and anyone else I might of frogotten.
