Or rather horse. Said horse being my dapple gray Percheron/Thoroughbred cross named Beaumont. Sometimes when we play shows where we have to pass the hat our bass player Sam Petite gently reminds me not to mention things like...
"Come on folks, throw some big bucks in there, I got a horse to feed!"
He does this, of course, in the hope that I will not spoil the band's chances to collect riches. 'Cause Sam figures that people will assume that I am (or we are) already rich beyond measure as I (or we) own horse(s).
Well it's just not the case. I am the only rich man in the band. So if a hat comes your way at one of those "pay what you can" sort of shows, please throw plenty of paper money in for the boys in the band.
And if you actually believe that I am rich...Well I am in a way. I might not be loaded, but I am rich with family and good friends like the fellows in the Poor. I mean Pour.
Did I mention that I have a horse?
