My jeans is dirty

Hi Livers,

My Wrangler jeans experiment needs to come to an end. I have worn them for 13 days in a row now. Fabrese is being sprayed liberally by my tour mates every few hours. I was hoping to make it to the end of the tour still wearing them but I don't know if it will happen. I may retire them after the show tonight in Milwaukee. I ain't fer certain though. I kinda like the way they feel on my twigs.

Wow! Chicago was pretty effing kewl the other night. It was also great to return to Cleveland O high O. Last night in Minneapolis I got to ketchup with Mr. Schneider and Billy Harvey and the lads. Twas a great night as well. How the hell did I get so lucky?

I am so sad I didn't get to see the Cubbies game. Sleep was more of a priority that day. I think I have finally kicked this cold's arse. I was sent a package of socks and a great book to Chicago by my friend Poppy. Thanks. I have been wanting to read A Confederacy of Dunces for some time now. The socks saved the day. You can wear the same jeans everyday but you gots to change yer socks and boxers. At least that is what my ma says. Oh yeah... Happy Mother's Day Mom.
Thanks for paying for those guitar lessons when I was 6. I love you.

My jeans are dirty
from top to bottom
from the spills and stain
I read my story
of glory and sorrow
of laugher and pain
I just can't wash away
the things I live every day...

I just now got a copy of your Old Ironsides concert that you had in Sacramento a couple of weeks ago! I begged my coworker to go and see you, (Riad is his name - from Syria) and i mailed him a 20 dollar bill so he would pick up your CD after the show and mail it to me! Well, last time a ask that. He liked your show so much, he copied the CDs and mailed them to me. So i dont get your fancy artwork! ;-( Steve, during the 3 rd song, some lady fell off a table... and crashed! Dude.. that was soooo freakin funny! Riad told me about it... but when i Heard the "Thumb... crash .. bamm.... " on the CD... man... Your $19.99 radio shack microphones are really picking things up good! You were like" man.. are you alright?" I hope she was fine! Anyhow.. the show rocked! I wish i could have been there! Hurry back to SD! I cant wait for the casbah and coffee shop! later....
