Welcome

Dear all,

Welcome to the My Darling Clementine web site. Pull up a chair, pour yourself a drink and make yourself at home. Hey, you don’t even need to wipe your feet.

We hope this serves as a one-stop-shop for all things "Clementine." Something that satisfies all those yearnings and heartache needs.

Please enjoy looking, listening, reading, watching ...and shopping!

See you back in the real world soon.

North By North West Tour Update

Although she is improving slightly Lou is still not well enough to perform so consequently tonight’s show in Port Townsend and tomorrow in Vancouver have been cancelled. Friday’s show in Eugene and Sunday’s in Santa Cruz will go ahead as will MDC’s live appearance and session on Sleepy Johns Sunday morning radio show on K-Pig.

Lou thanks everyone for the get-well messages and support. They have been a great comfort. Here is a word from the English patient……

“Hello and thank you to everyone for all the well wishes. It’s been really appreciated and each kind message helps to sooth me a tiny bit.

This has certainly not been the planned trip. I hadn’t factored in any hospitals, any cancelled shows, or my face swelling to three times its size. I am in hiding to protect the innocent.

Meanwhile my husband and daughter look on with brave expressions of pity. Michael is a great nurse and Mabel is on swelling reduction observation duty. (Where would I be without them).

Feeling pretty sorry for myself, guilty, stupid, depressed and to be honest, scared. I THINK my swollen face is staring to reduce, I THINK the dizziness and trembling has gone, I THINK I’m through the worst. I had 3 rounds of IV drugs in hospital and now I’m on a serious tablet regime holed up here in Long Beach. Yes, I know there are worst places to be ill. I saw 2 bald eagles yesterday! (No comments please) But a sick bed is a sick bed, wherever.

Anyway, I’ve done a rewrite for the imaginary gigs:

I’ll put my hair back behind my (swollen) ears.
Out of my (tiny pig like) eyes
I won’t leave a (sweat encrusted) strand
And you can watch the (long distance mountainous) running of my (stinging) tears
And you can try to understand. 

Ok, enough self pity.

Love and peace to y’all,
Lou

Due to Lou being hospitalised in Eugune, Oregon, the shows in Long Beach WA, won’t be taking place. We already pulled last night’s and tonight’s is also now cancelled.

She is resting up in a cottage by the beach before we drive north to Port Townsend where, all being well, tomorrow’s show will take place.
