I am thinking about you today, because it is Christmas

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

I am thinking of you today because it is Christmas, and I wish you happiness.

And tomorrow, because it will be the day after Christmas, I shall still wish you happiness; and so on throughout the year.

I may not be able to tell you about it every day because I may be far away, or because both of us may be very busy, or perhaps I cannot even afford to pay the postage on so many letters; or find the time to write them.

But that makes no difference. The thought and the wish will be here just the same: In my work and in the business of life I mean to try not to be unfair to you in any way. In my pleasure if we can be together, I would like to share the fun with you. Whatever joy or success that comes to you will make me glad.

Without pretense, and in plain words — Good Will is what I mean. May the spirit of Christmas be yours throughout the year.

— Henry Van Dyke

Merry Christmas, 2008

Happy Anniversary, Budrock Prewitt! (started working for Willie Nelson & Family Nov. 18, 1977)

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014


Congratulations, Budrock “Buddy” Prewitt, beginning a new year (his 38th), with Willie Nelson & Family.  This concert with WN&F and Linda Ronstadt  was his first show first show, at the SuperDome in New Orleans.   This is the poster from that show.

DSC_0346 by you.

Congratulations, Buddy, here’s to many more years to come.


“That was awhile back and I’m still here. Lucky, I guess. Greatful, for sure.” — Buddy

Think about it, Buddy has seen more Willie Nelson & Family shows than anyone ever anywhere!    His job doesn’t just involve getting in early and getting the lights set up, he works throughout the show and can’t slip away for a nap or snack.  That’s a lot of Willie Nelson & Family music!

[ed note:  I wanted to write that Buddy can’t ‘slip away to get stoned or get laid’, but it didn’t seem appropriate to write here, so I went with the nap and the snack thing. — Linda]


“On the road again”. Buddy “Budrock” Prewitt (SHOWCO lighting designer/director) catches a smoke during David Bowie’s 1976 Isolar “Station to Station” tour. Buddy resigned from SHOWCO in 1980 to work exclusively for Willie Nelson as his lighting director.  Please like our FB page SHOWCO the Book. Thank you!”
