Recommended Posts

From CH:

his might duplicate but...

Clay: "Waukegan, who here is actually FROM Waukegan?" It was my birthday yesterday. Tghe lady on the plane thought I was 29. I felt like going home. I thought I looked like 21.

I'm a little nervous this evening...I've never performed live with a full orchestra... they're all dressed nice... sleek... I'm not that classy, so I'm a little scared.

They are using big words, like ?? and Leonardo... I just say things like slower, faster, out... lol.

We're going to do soemthing different this year.

OMG, he referenced RIPAGATE. :LOL

He's a comedian!

Told people not to go around sticking their hands over people's mouths -- it's RUDE!

He has the Xmas spirit early because of the snow.

MCWL (Merry Christmas with Love).


ok..I usually have problems with this song...and so far he hasnt pushed this too much....GAH his voice is just so pwerful that the phone cannot handle it.

From Ch...

Someone in chat said gray sweater, blue shirt.

From CH...

People got in late. Jim and Carol.

Drove 7 hours through the snow

Jim, did she pay you?

Jim says Carol slept the whole way.

She's got friends on the phone and he is teasing her.

This more than just the Clay singing show, he's bantering away.

GAH...he added some really great vocal flourishes...without really losing control...WOW ...just WOW...I lvoed that...

again a favorite version...


How can he just get better and better and better..

Hi, everybody....Couchie and I checking in...She just said, "I'm just fat and happy." We ate some tri-tip and caesar salad and are sipping on some cabernet.

Life sucks.

At least you're not a fat 29-year-old. I gotta get a clear copy of this banter.
