the main squeeze continued

Ok everyone apparently my post was took the wrong or some people formed false opinions of me. I do not think myself, I do not think I am the best, I am not stuck up, and I sure as hell dont have the **** big head. When I won that accordian contest in jennings in february I thought I was not going to win and when I did I was cryin because I do not think I am good. So there you go as far as all the people that think I have got the big head,well, I dont. I still look up to Iry Lejeune because he is the man and will always be the man there will never be no one like him. Number 2. I dont see why "MOM" has to post business on here outside her household problems. The way I see it people dont care if you like your mom and dad or not they go to hear peoples music not there problems. But I am sure the people out there wouldnt want to hear why I dont like you "MOM" because they do have better stuff todo rather than throw pitty parties. Number 3. Thank you for the great compliments matt and rick reid. Now let me try this one more time.

I would like to invite everyone close by the sulhpur area to come out and listen to my band and i "Aaron chesson and the main squeeze" this coming sunday in hackberry la at the speckled trout from 1 to 5pm.


Re: the main squeeze continued

Don't sweat it, Aaron. There are plenty of people here who share their enthusiasm about upcoming gigs, what thoughts crossed their mind as they stared into their cornflakes, and the new computers they buy (including myself). There is always someone with a different opinion, and you know what they say about those.
This place is supposed to be a community and a way to build relationships. Judging from the comments, it looks you have done that.

Keep doing what you're doing, keep your personal life out of it, and it will be alright.

Re: the main squeeze continued

Aaron...look forward to hearing yall Sunday

Re: the main squeeze continued


Wish I was still there...I would come to see you. I hear
you are quite talented. I just got back from a week and 1/2 in the area for balfa camp and festival international. I used to live in lafayette, so I get back fairly often...hope to get to hear you sometime.


Re: Re: the main squeeze continued

perfect response Aaron - but I'm partial, but I've also met you.

Re: Re: Re: the main squeeze continued

thank you matt and to all a good day

Re: Re: Re: Re: the main squeeze continued

Noc you otta try for Jerry Springer. Believe you would be a good show on that.

Re: Re: Re: Re: the main squeeze continued

well beings you won't talk to me on the phone or by e-mail. you give me no choice but to go on here! The future Mrs.Chesson.Thats so funny.Lets see right now Aaron, is still legaily married to Carrie Chesson,he is married to Amanda Chesson,and now you.Pooor Aaron!If you don't believe me call the court house in Lake Charles,La.Carrie, checked on it and he is as legal with Amanda, as he is to Carrie, so that means he has to divorce Amanda, before he can marry you.Yes Amanda, is remarried and free of Aaron,but he lied under oath that he was divorced - so there for at this present time he has 2 wives and I guess a soon to be third one.Gee this will look great in court.Enjoy your life- with my son - all of the womens'MAN-hes' just that good.And he will leave you looking like a fool also.oh by the way welcome to his group of women.

the main squeeze continued - Congrats w/ cookies at bed time

Well now... was'nt that all very therapudic?

Those that got it.. HAIL to you; You are likely AARP members, or, you more than qualify to be an AARPster.

And if:
1. you got it
2. are an AARP qualifier
3. got it, aarp qualifier & you play accordion or fiddle ... YOU GET THE BIG BONUS of cookies and milk before bed time.

Those that did not get it (you know who you are)... well just keep thinking there's hope, and perhaps you will grow to understand at some juncture... no cookies or milk for you

Payton Place? Yessr buddy with a gob of accordion stuff.
Payton Place, American Idol, As the world turns, All my children, Jerry Springer, Dr. Phil, Name that tune, The gong show, This old house, how to build an accordion with three fingers remainging and ten toes, with a bit of Howdy Doody tossed in... All of that and more... but if you think of things for what they are... heck it's just life no matter where you live; Be it in Jennings, Lake Charles, Odessa, Bismark, Jersey or where ever. Now everyone say to themselves this little diddy:
I amma
You arrra
Dip Sh*t... and it's ok!
Now flog yourself forty times and you will sleep like a baby (trust me on this one)!

Those that did not get it, relax take a big breath and don't pop a vein.

Such matters are best, or, better explained by doctors, lawyers, educators and a ton of folks with enough life experience to understand when not to puff up like an adder.
They hope (we that understand hope) to hand down such knowledge to youngsters, so as to carry on this business of living and loving well, hence reaching the pinnicle of being human.

I have learned more about some posters in this segment than I have over the years of reading and writing here. So here is another one, for all you that did not quite understand the Pop Mason msg.

"A wise old bird sat in a great big Oak.
The more he saw, the less he spoke.
The less he spoke the more he heard.
Now what do you think of that wise old bird?"

I wish you each a gob of personal peace... Nonc you know whooooo

P.S. time to pick up the poo and mow the back yard,
I 'll squeeze ya later

Re: Mitred Corners?


What's the big deal with mitered corners? Does anyone out there have square holes behind their flappers? Metal vs. plastic buttons? Should I buy an Ariette? Hey, there's an 80 year old Eagle on Ebay...should I buy it? Should I hang my new accordion by the bass strap to stretch out the bellows? Has Augusta been taken over by young punks?

Let's get back on track, y'all. And Aaron, now I'm REALLY interested in seeing your band play, so this whole controversy was, in a way, a good thing.

Good luck with the gig!

Nick B.

Re: Re: Mitred Corners?

Oh Boy,Oh Boy, right in my alley .


Re: the main squeeze continued - Congrats w/ cookies at bed time

Good try Nonc. Been there, done that, got the same result. I do love reading your writing though.
Said all I'm gonna' say for now. I'll just sit here on my limb and continue watching and listening ( cause I don't quite have the age to qualify for AARP yet)

Re: the main squeeze continued - Congrats w/ cookies at bed time

Noc on Jerry Springer! That otta be good.

Bill and Joe.... yeah you're right , could be a dandy. Ha.

You gotta script to sell? I charge good money to script, if I gotta do it myself... try this one.

I'll wear a thong and a leather mask and treat everyone to Chameau on accordion.

We can capture the Arab audience and viewers with that one… After which, I’ll open handed slap half the audience and tell em I had a thang with their momma and start a dandy accordion war to be fought in Jennings. We can post it up and advertise some big ole trophy thing and I'll toss in all my goofy accomplishment plaques and certificates of achievement and some ole cooter bobble heads and get you know who to enter the contest (that'll put the bacon on the table for sure).... We could hold some sorta skank moc wedding on stage and mud wrestle the preacher and the organ player. Afterwards, we'll spray the bride down with Dixie beer and cool aid, pitch a gob of rice, sweep it up, cook it with some onion, peppers and put a spice on it and call it dinner.

Bill and Joe, you got a gob of work to do hooking this Springer thing up. I want $5k minimum up front + 20% of the gate and 10% of the sales & advertisining.. There will be a stout technical rider with my own sound man and a backline requiremen...oh, and a dandy load in with arrowhead bottle water (9 ounce size)and a jug of George Dickel. Getter Done !

Boys, ya got ole Nonc giggling, I appreciate it

Re: Bill and Joe.... yeah you're right , could be a dandy. Ha.

Ya gotta quit smelling your fingers Nonc. That brown stuff under your nails is getting to your brain.

Re: the main squeeze continued
