Here is a sneak peek at “It’s Only Halloween”..the full video will be ready soon, but here is a sneak peek! Take a look!

9 Months Today!!    Although I’ve been 270 days in treatment or” clean & sober ” I missed my chip this Friday at Fireside because they use the day of sobriety which in my case is November 21.     So now I have a week to ponder what I’ll say and edit my gratitude list to a mere 100 or so people and things!  Seriously there’s literally a C note worth of recipients. Family ,friends, staff and of course Jim A and Kathy.    A couple of years ago I knew this was a needed path to pursue. I just needed my HP to place me in the RIGHT place. And boy did he! Friday night a real miracle, there have been lots; but Joy stands out. Her story was going from Heroin to Professor with husband & a miracle baby to boot. From walking the streets to flying in their own plane..    She picked up 15 years and has more positive energy than you can shake a stick at. Her students are sooo lucky to have her.     After her share I knew a week would be good to evaluate my scenario. With only  9 months, I’m really enthusiastic about sobriety but I don’t have a clue in the BIG picture. So being humble with tons of gratitude isn’t only safe its accurate!    My Mom’s going to cry and my Sis will say it’s a miracle, which it most certainly is! Lisa Marie my new partner and love, should have something in store as she truly understands the art of helping others in life as a way to personal happiness.     I’ve got cancer, live in a small sober house with two great guys, drive an old car and JUST got my new smile , which I do often lately And a future so bright I need a welders shield. Shades won’t cut it.    New jobs are coming to me, word is out I’m dependable and ready to do the job at hand. Imagine 9 months & 12 little steps. So simple just like my Higher Power promised.     It takes work but ALL good things require that. That’s why it feels so GOOD! 
 
Another thing that has happened is I’m now collaborating with my good friend Ethan on awesome new adventurous projects.

9 Months Today!!

   Although I’ve been 270 days in treatment or” clean & sober ” I missed my chip this Friday at Fireside because they use the day of sobriety which in my case is November 21.

   So now I have a week to ponder what I’ll say and edit my gratitude list to a mere 100 or so people and things!  Seriously there’s literally a C note worth of recipients. Family ,friends, staff and of course Jim A and Kathy.

Happy Birthday to Me!!      I’m experiencing everything since November 21 2011 as a sober and drug free individual. If you’re lucky enough to be a normy then this isn’t a big deal. But for untold millions staying sober is HUGE. I couldn’t have imagined celebrating this day without say cocaine, pot, booze and a dark smokey bar in which to have a good time!!      Not that all the aforementioned stuff wasn’t fun once. But for me 40+ years had just beaten me down. I did to myself. Others were present and helped the party continue, but the buck stopped with me. I had lost Butch somewhere in the 70’s and treatment at Oasis helped me find Patrick the person. Now illegal stuff just doesn’t have the rush and allure of days gone by. I’m having a second chance at life and it is THRILLING!      Things are going well to say the least. Issues? Tons of them. Health? got cancer, Finances? Rebuilding slowly while jumping back into work with a clear head! Friends the best ever surely  ” My Strongest Asset”  Family? closer than ever. They are  proud of my progress. and actually ask ME for advice on occasion. It’s NEVER to late to change!! Spirituality is the key to my 255 clean & sober days. And finally forgiveness, not only to myself for all the stupid and wrong actions encountered during my long and deep addictions. But to others who are currently obsessing on keeping me down!! There are a few who wish me ill will, but last week I found out how many people are happy with my recovery. And it’s ALOT  I was always blessed with a network of friends and acquaintances who I value now more than ever. Gratitude is the key and I am so grateful.I’m beginning a wonderful romance, but waiting for one year to pass before moving to the next level! Have to be patient because my program has to come first. It’s tough sometimes, but she understands. Actually, it’s kinda like being a kid again! Taking it slow.      I will not give evil  the satisfaction of a name or face. They know themselves and they will not affect my new life and sobriety!                                                                                                                                                             To All My Supporters Many Thanks.

Alive Again!

Post Comic Con & NASCAR report

For someone who USED to have tons of time on his hands, this new and improved lifestyle really keeps you jumping!! I’m just give gonna give an actual play by play of last weekends schedule and let you decide if I should take a break.

  Tuesday got another MRI then a full set of X rays for a dark spot on my lung or heart. No problem turned out to be cartilage. Wednesday Did some filming around South Bay then off to a AA meeting in Anaheim. Thursday went to San Diego for Comic Con with Ethan more filming. Lost car keys amongst 100,000 people. Missed w00stock cuz had to get towed 95 miles, replacement key to be $500 ouch. Back to L A. got sister to take me back next day with VIP passes of course! Went in thinking had to order my new key but L/F had it !! Autographs & photo ops 4 hours worth. Good to see good friend Lou Ferrigno. His people loved my sisters Keystomycastle.com products.

  Back to L A for Oasis fireside ceremony that evening. Then Saturday after commitment at Oasis, Lisa Marie, Ethan and me are off to Toyota Speeday at Irwindale for meet & greet with fans before race. Nice seeing old buddy Christopher “crash” Knight. Funny stuff.

  Getting together with Ken Kauffman CEO of HollywoodRPM Entertainment as a client and friend. NASCAR Crazy pilot went off withuot a hitch. Should do well. Made connections for next year for all of the above stuff. Think ahead. Great interview with LuggNutz entertainment. Thanks guys for your support.

  During this whole 4 day run between L A & S D plus Irwindale, Ethan & Lisa Marie are filming,tweeting,blogging while we are driving. Also in this techno age from the car I’m signing a deal with a Japanese agent.

  Finally Sunday comes and I have to finalize 4 weekends activities in October while creating a plan to help others in need of assistance with their issues.

  Closed out Comic Con with Rock Rebel Shop large.Thanks John Olander & Tim. Super fan interaction. ESPECIALLY with the kids!! They were such fun.Youngsters watching my work 45 years after it was made AND liking it is “Pretty Cool”

  So juggling Cancer treatment, personal appearances, a clean&sober program,tons or travel, upcoming events and screenings. Plus a couple of dozen other small appointments seems to be my new life.

   Should I slow down?

Never Never Never  I’m gonna stay in this tree til I croak! Cuz nobody loves me and nobody cares.

   If you don’t get it you’re not a true Munsters fan. Ask one for the joke!!!

  Oh on a serious note ; The loss of Amy Winehouse has made my sobriety so much more appreciated that my number one priority is now to make the Oasis Treatment Center program a household name. They are THE best and if I can let people know that, then lives WILL BE SAVED. I will be 58 August 2 and 9 months sober Aug 21. Jim A and the staff there saved my life. Miracles happen there and the world needs to know it!!!

     More info on everything next week and the weeks that follow.

                                                                         Thanks to all the fans

                                                                                Butch

I have updated my Blog! Entry #2 !!!

Always going to try to be positive, but there are some trying people and situations that truly test ones metal!! For instance, AIR TRAVEL.  EEEAAAAHHH!!!!!!!!!. I’ve been flying since planes were actually planes. Propellers on D C 3s and Constellations as such. Well the once exciting act of “travel” in general is LOOOONG  gone. Except a good road trip in a well appointed “Tour Bus” God I miss my Grateful Dead Bus “Sugar Magnolia” Willie’s got the right idea when her sings On The Road Again. But back to the horrible industry that we now accept as status quo; the Airlines! In the last month alone EVERY flight I’ve been unlucky to have been booked on has been over two hours late taking off, twice resulting in sprints through the terminal only to see my connection taxi away. Plus I have spent two nights in hotels waiting for cancelled flights, no food because it’s always the middle of the night! Due not to mechanical trouble, just being late! The lack of accepting cash, charging for everything but AIR. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised to see them start charging for using the “Facilities” Or issuing out of your seat “Violations” when the seat belt is illuminated. And why don’t they just admit a “Water Landing” is a CRASH!!! for Gods sake.
    
    I know that without my new knowledge I WOULD have been drinking by now!!! Airports were my favorite watering holes and the last several nightmares they called air travel trips would have me belly up to the bar for sure. So thanks Jim A. Paxton, my counselor Keith and Oasis as a whole. A good foundation and AA as support keeps you in the program. You’re never cured but I know now that I can handle the worst life can throw at you” sober”. And this particular week it was the TSA, several airlines and Amex for doing not a DAMN thing to help out. A valued customer my Ass. Ha that’s a joke.

    Want to sign off on a positive note. Great seeing my dear friend Jon Provost of Lassie fame.  The sports legends at the collectible expo we attended. Plus sat next to:  DRUM ROLL.. Vini “mad dog” Lopez drummer for THE BOSS himself!  Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Very nice guy and a Munster’s fan. Isn’t everyone? Good chat about Asbury Park. A  hello goes out to Chico at Chico’s Jazz Club. See you soon my New Jersey family. I’m really blessed to have the network of friends ALL over the country, As Joe Walsh stated so long ago ” Life’s been good to me so far”!

Too bad I missed the reunion of my step dads 1964 Washington Senators. I actually played in my ONLY father and son game there. A great memory. Here’s to Ken Hunt. We miss you!!

                                                                                                                                                     Catch you next week

                                                                                                                                                      Butch
