Writing on Air

Solitude, Lost Photos and Jewel!

Posted on June 02, 2004 by jimparedes

Had a brief respite from the tour after our wild LA show. I visited my sister Lory in Oxnard, a quiet place by the beach. I enjoyed some Thai food, great company and some needed moments of solitude where I just walked by the beach or just stayed home. That was quite refreshing.

While my sister Lory and husband Greg were out, I looked at pictures around the house and saw some of my mom and dad which I had not seem in a while. My father died at age 42 in a plane crash with President Magsaysay back in 1957 and my mom passed away around 4 years ago. I took digitals of them and will put them in my own house, too.

My pogi dad who had his own radio show then!

Ester and Jess as young newly weds.

I also took the time to go to a Mac store and ask all the questions I wanted answers to regarding my new 3rd generation 20 gig IPOD. I just love this toy.

APO’s Reno leg of the tour was something else. When we landed, we saw a big billboard of us at the airport. Inside the three biggest casinos there (El Dorado, Circus Circus and Silver Legacy) there were posters, video kiosks, flyers, newspapers, magazines which featured us together with Jewel, Sinbad, and Chippendales! (That was a laugh!). The Reno concert went really well for us and for the full house of 3,000 people who watched and gave us an ovation. Gratifying, to say the least!! It’s what we entertainers live for!

Meanwhile, I am back on the hustings here in Tampa visiting ticket outlets and shooting the breeze with our kababayans as we promote the show. We have two this weekend, one in Tampa and the other in Miami. Will know by tomorrow if they will increase it to two shows in Tampa.
