Rob’s life has been touched by yet another tragedy – the Indiana tornadoes.
Thank everything in the Universe, Rob, her mother and her house were left standing, but the “town proper” – her entire town – was annihilated by this thing. This is one of those cases where living so far out in the country [with the cursed dialup internet connection] was more of a blessing than a curse. Although, she did tell me a house a few miles down the road from her did lose its roof. She was extremely lucky in this whole situation. I shudder to think of what may have happened had she lived “in town.” Many people are dead and she reported in to me that it’s just unreal – absolutely horrifying. Nobody can get anywhere because of all the debris, and of course, there have been power and water issues galore.
She was barely able to message me on her blackberry to tell me all of this, but I’m so grateful that she could, because I was worried sick about her, and I’m sure many of you have been too.
Although she is still standing, I’m sure it is shocking and awful to watch this happen to your own city. So please, keep her in your thoughts, prayers, whatever it is you do to wish another person strength, courage and healing.
She may not be online next week to celebrate her own release with us. 🙁 But Reavers, let’s keep this party going and give her one hell of a release. I want to see Doubletake shoot to the top of the bestseller lists. Rob deserves it, The Leandros Brothers deserve it… so whatever you can do right along with me to make that happen, let’s do this thing!
To end on a positive note: we will have a new Cal TV commercial to show you on Tuesday, and a super fun part three to the contests [starting on D-Day – 03.06]!
The song contest has been SO amazing, I’m going to begin posting polls next week, so we can vote on our favorite song in the cases where multiple songs by a particular band have been suggested, and it’s too hard to choose. I will also be posting a playlist on Rob’s YouTube Channel with as many videos as possible from all the suggestions.
SO! Keep the party going with me so that when our Guest of Honor can arrive, she’ll be happy and thrilled to see that The Reaver Army has stood by her side and kept her strong while once again, life tried to knock our Dear Rob Thurman down.
With Love and Appreciation,
