Sticking Out Like A Sore Thumbs Up

I had a really wonderful night tonight. It was definitely not our best display, but I don't remember having this much fun in a long time. I mean, it HAS been almost 3 months since we've played a show. Ethan did well, and all of us were glad to be on stage together again.

Welcome To The Good Life.

I'm glad you had a good show!
I'm thinking next time you decide to have an 18+ show, you should make me a fake id...and maybe buy me a really fast car. :P

Haha. I wish I could be there tomorrow with April, Kelly, and the gang, but I'm stuck here in stupid Illinois.

Nice. :)
I imagine it's something like coming back to school for the first day after 3 months of summer vacation.
Ethan's wicked cool. Can't wait to see him play.

Oh, and I'm going to lower myself to begging you guys to come to Massachusetts before Warped Tour, like on one of those random shows you guys do. It's been a whole year from yesterday since you came to Boston! We miss you guys. =)

Take care, Matt.

well, I finally blew up the pic so I can read what it says. I should get sleep before I read these things.

I am proud to say that I am pro-ethan.

Mr. Thiessen,

Ok, so this is probably going to sound uber creepy, but I had a dream last night, and you were in it. (not in a creepy way) I'm actually surprised that I even recognized who you were.

I don't usually have dreams about people that I know, or people that I know exist, and I am very much someone that believes that dreams are significant. Usually my dreams are of myself in certain situations.

But, I believe that significant dreams mean something. An angel appeared to Joseph in a dream regarding his marriage to Mary, another Joseph interpreted the Pharos’ dreams, etc...

But in my dream you helped me out of a very very dark moment in my life by simply having a conversation with me when I had mentioned that I had just moved from Ohio.

I feel a little ridiculous posting this in a comment, but I couldn't shake the nagging feeling that I was supposed to let you know. I don't know what it means or how this might affect your life... or even how it affects mine, but one thing I have learned in my life is when I have gotten strong, significant messages in dreams, I take note of them.

In any case, thank you for taking the time to talk to me in my dream. Maybe the nagging feeling will fade now that I've written this. It's just one of those things that don't leave you alone until you act on it.

Hope your life is beautiful,

Regardless of how your show went Monday night, Tuesday night was marvelous. Mostly because I was there.
Ethan looks great next to all of you guys. Especially under the arch, representing Missouri. Like the Thanksgiving turkey in the center of the table.

You all must come back. If you shan't I shall be sad.

Best wishes and health,

What the frak happened to your thumb?!

It kinda looks star shaped....

Or is that not your thumb.

It says Piro Ethan.


I be confused.

Glad you had fun!
