BENEFIT FOR CADILLAC JOHNSON

If you are a regular listener to BIG TEXAS BLUES, you know I love me some Michael 'Cadillac' Johnson! A sweetheart of a man, Cadillac is always willing to step up and help someone or minister to them in their time of need! 

Well, now he is in need. He has to have an operation to remove a tumor on his parathyroid gland in his neck. He does have insurance and the prognosis is good for the surgery. The only problem is he needs to come up with the deductible for the insurance to be able to make this happen. This is hard to do on a fixed income! And harder even still for a musicians income!!

The friends of Cadillac Johnson have stepped up to help him with a benefit this Sunday, December 28th at Fred's TCU location from 4pm-10:30pm. Acts scheduled to appear are Buddy Whittington, the Super Kings, Mike Morgan, Dave Milsap, Band of Brothers, Blind Dog Cooley, Steve Hill, Dylan Bishop and Reo Casey, and many special guests. There will also be a silent auction.

We would like all of Cadillac's friends to be able to play a little, but even more importantly, we need the FINANCIAL SUPPORT for someone who is always willing to help others. 

You can make a donation at the benefit. If you can't make the benefit but would still like to make a donation, you can do so by making a payment thru PAYPAL (send to revcadillacjohnson@hotmail.com) or send check or money order donations to Michael Johnson P.O. 470183 Fort Worth, TX 76147-0183
Here is the tenative line-up:

Dylan Bishop & Reo Casey - 4- 4:30 Band of Brothers - 4:45 - 5:15 Blind Dog Cooley - 5:30 - 6:00 Dave Milsap - 6:15 - 6:45 Buddy Whittington - 7:00 7:30 Mike Morgan - 7:45 - 8:15 Super Kings - 8:30 - 9:00 Steve Hill - 9:15 - 9:45
Johnny Red - 10:00 - 10:30

I am proud to be your host for this event. Please come out and show your support for Cadillac!!!

DALLAS / FT WORTH / N TEXAS LIVE BLUES 10/23/14 THRU 10/30/14



DAVID EDWARD BOUBEL, SR.
My Daddy - April 22, 1942 - September 29, 2014

My father passed away, unexpectedly but peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of Monday, September 29th. They say a girls first love is her Daddy, and that was certainly the case with me. Although we didn't share the same views on a lot of things (music, politics, a woman's place in this world, whether your daughter should drop out of college and go on the road with a rock band :>) ) we shared many many more  - the necessity of being a decent person, having pride in your work and most importantly living your life in a way that makes it possible to face yourself in the mirror every day and know you have done your best to do the right thing. And although he didn't share my radically emancipated views, he never belittled them or me about them. Both he and my Mom always encouraged me to believe in myself. What an incredible gift!

My Dad was not a famous man or a perfect man, but he was a good man. A decent man. A man who loved, supported, was faithful to and took care of his family. A man you could depend on to do what he said he would. He was a VERY good automotive mechanic, but could fix just about anything.  He didn't golf, or fish or drink or smoke, or go to bars (except to see me play -  what a bad influence I am!) or have any hobbies: he worked. He worked long, hard, greasy hours in the boiling heat and the freezing cold to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. He battled diabetes for many years, survived 2 bouts of colon cancer and in the last few years of his life developed Parkinson's. I think the Parkinson's and the shaking of his hands that made him unable to work was the hardest for him.  When nature takes away your ability to do what you love, that is the cruelest blow of all.

My Mom says when she and my Dad were dating, he once said "I don't want any snotty nosed kids." And then they had me. That must not have been too bad, because then they had three more. And stayed married for 51 years - quite the accomplishment in this day and age when people marry with no real sense of commitment and then divorce at the first sign of trouble. As I get older and hear horror stories about other peoples families and childhoods, I am immensely thankful that both of my parents took very good care of me, and have always loved me unconditionally.

As a teenager, my Dad and I fought. I mean FOUGHT. I once told him in the heat of an argument "If you didn't want to have hard-headed kids, then YOU shouldn't have had any kids."  He had a temper, and I definately inherited it. And you know what? I'm fine with that. Sometimes it annoys people, but it really comes in handy when I need to stick up for myself. Having a temper and being stubborn will get you through more in life than you might realize.

But those years of fighting were long since over, and I have no regrets. I know my Daddy loved me. And I loved him, and know he knew I loved him.

And when you get to the end of the story, that's all that matters.

Today I am a little older and a little sadder. But I'm stubborn and hard headed, and I'll get through.

Thanks Daddy.
