Title: Tavis Smiley's Interview
Post by: teridave on August 25, 2010, 10:57:41 pm
Hi to John and Fans,

We live in Bloomington, IN and I played the Tavis interview for my wife Teri tonight.
We thought about John's comment regarding living in Bloomington where he said he puts his "Mean Face" on when he doesn't want to talk to anybody. We have known about this for a long time. Teri is a waitress at Cracker Barrel and other wait staff who have seen John have mentioned that comment. I have always told Teri that if I was in his shoes, I would be the same way. I would expect people to respect my privacy in my town and I would not want to have to put on an act and sign autographs every time I went out of my house. Teri said tonight that John should write a song to the people of Bloomington to explain that, then she said he could say "I love my fans, but I'm a mean faced man..."
John, we love you so much. Keep up the great work, we cant wait to see you in October. Several of our friends are going with us, you really make this town proud of you.
