I'm sorry I'm so far behind on getting the news out to y'all. I
think I've made up for it, or at least tried to. I saved all the news and there's now 3
pages of it so it should hold you over till next week! (I hope!)
This has been a rough month all the way around.
On Sunday, May 6th my Aunt Rose lost her struggle with MS.
She's sorely missed but finally at peace. She was amazing in that she never complained of
her illness or it's effects on her. She was an amazing woman all of her life and she
remained so right up to the end.
The day before my aunt's funeral, my Ma took a nasty fall
on our sidewalk in the back yard and was terribly hurt. Her entire right side was swollen,
bruised, scraped, cut and bleeding. I won't go into long details, but being
"Ma", she refused to go to the doctor or the ER so I did what I could with ice
and bandages and she insisted I get her to the Mall to Lens Crafters because her glasses
were literally mangled in the fall (her face landed on the brick border of our flower
bed). I finally was able to get her cleaned up enough to get to the mall and they looked
at me like I'd beaten her.. we quickly set that straight but they said it would take 1.5
hours to complete the new glasses. She wanted to walk around a bit even though she really
should have been resting. We got to Penny's in the restroom and all the lights went out!
Turns out, half of the hillside on both sides of the interstate had the power go out..
parts of the stores were lit up and others not.. I was worried about Lens Crafters but
when we got back to them, they still had all their power.. thank God! When we finally got
home and got everything else done, I got 3 hours sleep and we hit the road to drive up
north to the funeral... we stayed till late afternoon with the family and had to head back
home. It was about 4 hours both ways so we were both drained.
I'll cut this short.. the next day, my uncle and his wife
who live in FL made it up here and stayed the weekend with us so there still was no time
for resting. On Mother's Day, my cousin, Isaac had a cookout for the family so we spent
the whole day at his house with the rest of the family. When we got home that night, I
told Ma I needed at least a week with NO EXCITEMENT! I pretty much got my wish but spent
the entire time updating all the websites and completing a new one, which you will see
At any rate, I certainly hope y'all had a better holiday
than we did. OH.. for all of you in KY and TN who've met my Aunt Louise and my Ma.. I just
wanted to make it clear that she's not the aunt that passed away. Aunt Louise is 85 and
while now much slower, doing fairly well... and really misses going to Nashivlle to visit
with y'all.. so does Ma but neither of them are up to those long trips anymore.
Ok.. 'nuff about me! On with the news!

WOWW! A Word on
APRIL 30, 2007
IN THIS WOWW!
* WADE HAYES APPEARANCES (More details further down in the newsletter)
.... new in Nashville, TN .. 5/5, 6/5
.... change .. McMinnville pulled from the calendar, 6/22
.... new in Camrose, Alberta, Canada with Rhett Akins, 8/3
* SITE UPDATES - since last WOWW!
.... Updates to Tour page
* NOTES ON THE 4/21 OWENSBORO SHOW - O'BRYANS BAR AND GRILL
Wade and Randy Lanham together - one of the best acoustic shows you'll ever witness.
Wade's stellar voice and superb 'picking' skills aligned with Randy's superior fiddle
playing and smooth harmonizing make musical magic.
We Nashville supporters love it when Wade goes to Owensboro to hook up with his long-time
friend for an evening of music. It's a quick fun trip to take with friends and fellow
'Wadies.' We go for the music and to touch base with Wade and Randy, but the trip always
enriches the friendships - a major bonus for Wade's fans.
O'Bryan's anchors the corner of a country crossroads west of Owensboro, in an area known
as West Louisville. It's near a lake and campground and a lot of farms and fields. And it
has a packed house of regulars and visitors on a Saturday night. Wade and Randy were
set-up in the corner of a covered patio. The crowd was also inside the restaurant area and
overflowing outside the patio - ready for good times and good music.
The sound was good and the crowd was very receptive. Only drawback to the evening was the
lighting. We could see Randy well and we could see Wade's guitar well, but not his face.
The 'hot spot' on the guitar put him in the shadows in the pictures.
Wade did a lot of his hits (we'll have the playlist on the web-site), a few of the
unreleased ones that he's written recently, a couple of Willie's songs, one of Strait's,
and a couple of covers that we hadn't heard before - Skagg's "Don't Get Above Your
Raising,' and Hank, Jrs "The Pressure is On." He absolutely aced that one -
definitely want to hear it again.
It was good to see Randy and his wife Kristi and pictures of their adorable little Emma,
We'll look forward to another trip to Owensboro anytime Wade and Randy are ready!
If you haven't booked for the Cancun Beach Party, you want to give it a second look. This
should be lots of fun in a very relaxed atmosphere. If you went on the cruise, you know
how much fun it is to get with other fans to enjoy the fun and the shows.
* NOTICE ABOUT THE MESSAGE BOARD
If you want to post on the message board and you aren't already registered, please let me
know. We're having to "pre-register" new posters. Unfortunately someone took
advantage of the boards that Gayle provides (so loyally and professionally) to include
inappropriate posts and links. We hate to have to take this extra step, but we want the
boards to be clean and enjoyable for everyone.
Send me the handle or nickname you want to use. You'll get an e-mall from gayle, giving
you a temporary password. Come join us - the forum is a lot of fun. It's good to hear from
all the Wade supporters out there.

THE RABBITS THAT ATE TORONTO.
An actual news item:
"TORONTO, May 8 (UPI) -- Toronto area homeowners are complaining to animal control
about a rabbit population explosion.
Colleen Gyergyai of the Oakville Humane Society says she receives at least 30 calls every
day from irate homeowners plagued by garbage- and garden-ravaging rabbits, the Toronto
Star reported Tuesday. She said a normal year would see about three complaints a day.
"It's everywhere from Oakville to Milton," Gyergyai said."
My fake news item:
A Toronto man was attacked and robbed on Bloor Street last night by outlaw rabbits. The
victim could tell they were gang rabbits by the tattoos on their ears, and the hip-hop
music on their boom boxes.
In a related story, police received reports of other rabbits stalking the downtown area.
One caller claimed to see a group of rabbits walking backwards, and described it as 'a
receding hare line'."
Officials suggest that citizens follow these safety tips:
1. Do not carry lettuce in your pockets or purse.
2. Do not go walking at night while wearing a carrot suit.
3. Do not pick up any pellet-shaped objects.

Big Rain Performs in Shanghai China
Rain's Bruce Guynn prepares to hand off his guitar to be able to walk through the audience
at the Shanghia International Music Festival Blue Stage. This year's 7-day music festival
in Century Park in Shanghai China had the highest attendance in its six year history. At
times Guynn sang in Chinese, but what may have really endeared Big Rain to the crowd is
their rendition of 'Pung Yu ah Pung Yu', which means 'Oh Friend Oh Friend' in Chinese.
