colin Colin Hay, formerly of “Men at Work, performed at the Dosey Doe Coffee Shop at The Woodlands, TX last Saturday night, Oct. 17, 2009, and dedicated Reggie’s favorite song to him. Click here or on the big photo to hear the song. The smaller photo below was taken colinsmilingafter he finished the song and smiled at Reggie.

Email from Colin:

Hey Reggie,

Great to meet you too. I can only guess at the challenges you have to confront on a daily basis. You are a very elegant and dignified gent. It sounds like you have some very cool people around you who both love and support you which is important in anyone’s life. I have just arrived home from my tour, so I’m going to sit on my stoop and have myself a little tea.
Say hi to your mama for me.



This is Reggie writing now. Here is a link to the video my friends, Matt and William, put together to the above song. I love it!!!

  1. I stumbled upon your site doing research about NF, and I have to say you’re lucky to have met someone as talented as Colin Hay! I love his stuff, and “Waiting for my Real Life to Begin” is one of may favorites. (by the way, you might want to correct the title of this entry, replace “new” with “real” — just a friendly pointer!)

  2. Aw, poor thing. Well how much sugar do you consume throughout the course of a day usually? Maybe you could keep the sugar for your drinks but take it out of your food consumption completely. Its easier to find alternative to sweeting food than it is for sweeting drinks.

    Not to mention the obvious don’t eat a lot of candy, cookies, etc.

  3. Smart.
    And maybe don’t fry everything that fits in the pan.
    I’m just saying.
    And don’t forget your veggies!
    (Don’t cook them in fat like my grandma does, that totally defeats the purpose)

    I feel like a dietitian right now.

  4. William, John and I met a very cool person at the Alabama Ice House last night. Her name is Brandy and she is very interested in Reggie and the Just Ask Foundation. I took many photos last night and will post them shortly. A good night was had by all.
