Last night I went to the Black Rose, which is a community center in
Black Forest. My boss had asked me and another co-worker if we wanted to go to this place to listen to music featuring Chuck Pyle, seen in this picture. I said "Yes!", thinking that the other person was going to say yes too, we had had a stressful week. But she said no, and so did everyone else she asked, so I was stuck. My boss loves going to the Black Rose, and loves Chuck Pyle even more. He is actually famous in the Country Music world, and has written many songs for famous singers, but I only knew he was old and sang country songs. Here is an epitaph I found on his website:
An accomplished songwriter, Chuck's songs have been recorded by John Denver, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Suzy Bogguss. Country fans know him best for writing, "Cadillac Cowboy", recorded by the late Chris LeDoux, and "Jaded Lover", recorded by Jerry Jeff Walker.
At the Community Center, they serve cookies and brownies, coffee and tea. No wine. I really needed some wine! You also have to sit on metal folding chairs for 4 hours! There were three acts before Chuck, who were three guys with guitars from Madison Wisconsin. They were all really good. Then Chuck came on, and to my surprise I liked him. He has been doing this a long time, and he is very comfortable on stage. He is also a really good story teller. So, despite the headache I had the next morning from sitting in those chairs, I had a fun time. More importantly, my boss had a great time.
Ok, the reason I asked if I am old before my time, is tonight I am going to a Bowling Alley to hang out with a friend from work. I am learning to knit. I joined the Easter Choir at church. I sit at home a lot. Seriously, who am I??
