Thank you, Janis Tillerson, for your great photos. You captured that sweet moment after the band plays, “Me and Paul”. Willie turns around to shake hands with his friend, and Billy stands and applauds his brother.

Martha and Billy English joined us for lunch at Mi Tierra, in San Antonio, which, as it turns out, is the third most popular destination in San Antonio!  Food was delicious, restaurant was beautiful,  but company was the best.


Front and center at a WN&F show.  What fun.

And Martha and Mickey could not escape this selfie on the ride back after the show. And yeah, I caught a bandanna!

Buddy Bear gets laid at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic

Billy English misses Budrock

Everyone missed Budrock “The Illuminator” Prewitt, at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July picnic. He’s been at every picnic I’ve ever been too, and except for the band, he’s probably been to more picnics than anyone, either as a fan or as a crew member.

Budrock says goodbye to band and crew, as they load up to leave for the 4th of July picnic in Fort Worth.

Budrock is Willie Nelson’s & Family’s Lighting Engineer, and he was injured early last month. He broke his heel, and tore and stretched and bent and punctured other parts of his feet, during a routine jump from the stage, setting up for a show. So sad; surgeons still waiting for swelling and infection to go down before they can do anything.  Ouch.  I can’t look at the photos; too painful.


Anyway, Budrock wasn’t there, but Budrock the Bear, or Buddy Bear, as the girls call him, was there to represent. He gave orders, growled at a few people, handed out guitar picks to a few lucky fans, and goofed around with Bobby at the sound board. And he posed for pictures with Buddy’s friends.


I know Buddy Bear was a virgin when the day started out, but by the end of the night, I think his life had changed forever. Women kept coming to get him and take him away, then bring him back with his fur all fluffed. I don’ t know. He didn’t say anything, but he was smiling.

LG wanted to send his best wishes to Budrock, too, and Janis and I photo bombed his picture.

It was so fun to hang out with friends in Las Vegas.  The shows didn’t start until 9:30, and we spend all day eating and hanging out, it was fun.  Here’s a sweet picture Lane took of Katrina and Billy.  So sweet.
