A Hard Life!

It must be a hard life being an entertainer. Simply being an”overnight-success” seems to take on average around 5 years and, if “success” is achieved, you are then typically controlled by so many business elements that your life is really not your own any more. It can become a blur of concerts and studios, interspersed with many hours inside a moving tour bus.

Ray is a bit of a celebrity in our town, and so more people know him than know us. We have had occasions where we have seen an individual pass by with a big smile and a “Hi Ray!” We looked at each, both thinking “Who was that?” Fortunately, much as he loves to ride in our car, touring seems to be of little interest to him which is probably just as well given his demeanor in the pic below.

Yes … even a dog can collapse after an exhausting performance!

  1. Benjamin says : Poor tired doggie needs some treats, that will do it!” Ray appears to have had enough of the dog-eat-dog life of entertaining…too much work and not enough rewards. We love the photo. Thank-you x 2!!
