Taped Ray Stevens Show for PBS in Nashville on December 13 along with Charlie Pride and Gary Morris (great show) and Ray and I reminisced about the old days when I was Steve Martin’s roommate while Steve was a writer on The Ray Stevens Show on CBS 1970… (photos to follow)

Went back to CA on December 14 and did the final two Johnny Mathis Christmas Shows at McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert. Also spent last weekend golfing with old friend comedian /director Wil Shriner, his son actor /comedian Nick Shriner and producer Howard Allen.

Last Friday (Oct. 14) night backstage at Arnoff Center For The Performing Arts...Cincinnati, OH...Johnny Mathis 60th Anniversary 22nd year with John and the orchestra. What a great job! I am truly blessed.👍

Arnold Palmer...what a gentleman & what a loss, not only to golf but to the whole world. Arnie was one of the nicest people I ever met. I did three events for him at Bay Hill for his children’s hospital & believe it or not we were pen pals for a time. Nita even did a golf sketch with him & Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show (Nita in a polka dot bikini distracting Arnie from making a putt. Ha!)

Won this at Scotty Medlock/Robby Kreiger Concert and golf for St Judes... Slash painted by Ronnie Wood of The Stones

This was the best St. Judes Children's Hospital all-star concert ever, at North Ranch Country Club on August 29. I got a great shot onstage during our encore. Left to right are Richie Sambora, Orianthi, Phil Chen (Jeff Beck) & Robby Krieger. Also on the show were Jerry Cantrell & Mike Inez (Alice In Chains), Danny Seraphine (Chicago), David Sikes (Boston), Robb Houston (Sixwire), Paul Barrere & Kenny Gradney (Little Feat), Dave Brock (The Doors) & Kit Potamkin & Steve Molitz (Particle).

After a corporate gig in Orlando for APCO International, I spent four days in Dunedin, FL and production manager and I had the good fortune to play at Innisbrook Country Club on the Copperhead course, where the PGA holds its Valspar Event every year. 95 degrees and 80% humidity...for some reason we seemed to have the course all to ourselves that day.

After the Rosemont Theatre in Chicago with Johnny Mathis on August 13, Mule Deer met up with his production manager Mike Grimm in Siasconset, Mass for the Nantucket Golf Club Charity Classic.

Nita and I attended the Johnny Miller Foundation golf event at Silverado Resort in Napa, CA from July 6-12. I did an outdoor show the last night after golf in The Grove. Pre-golf seminar was with Johnny Miller, LPGA's Kristie Kerr, plus former 49ers Steve Young and Jerry Rice. Johnny's son Andy put the entire event together. Our transportation from and to the airport, thanks to Ken Leister, was a Chrysler Maybach. Sweet!

The back of my 1977 Gibson J-200 is getting a little crowded. It started with Sheryl Crow backstage at Late Night with David Letterman and from there sort of took on a mind of its own. Everyone from Little Jimmy Dickens and Vince Gill to Richie Sambora, Jack Black, Alice Cooper, Zac Brown, Robby Kreigg, etc., etc., etc. Ha!
