that is group that I will be seeing tonight at the Fox Theatre in Detroit. My nephew had posted about them on Facebook and so being the curious sort that I am, I headed over to YouTube and searched. I found a video of them performing at YouTube headquarters and watched all 42 minutes of it. My favorite song was The Christmas Can-Can which can be found at 17:30 mark in this video: Straight No Chaser in concert at YouTube it is really funny. (fast forward past the interview for more singing)
This was a present from my girls - chauffeured by the youngest one, out for dinner at a restaurant (not sure of the name) that I think is Italian, and then the concert. Of course, the oldest one won’t be here as she is hard at work in NYC and won’t be home for the holidays till the 21st.
Today started with picking a couple of our friends up at the airport. They were coming in from Hawaii where they had gone for their 25th anniversary. Lots of little interesting stories on the ride home and I am sure the next time we get together we will hear some more.
So, my day will be long – I think that I will be taking a nap this afternoon – but it will end with this concert and that will be really fun!! I can hardly wait!
Went to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. About the same vendors as were there last year, minus a couple and add in a couple of new ones. Coffee guy and spice guy weren’t there this time, had some new people there who have a tree farm. They also had some flowers and a couple of cherry tomato plants in 12in tubs. Ended up getting a tomato plant for our patio – hope I don’t kill it. It smells like tomato already and has quite a few little yellow flowers on it. The blueberry guy that we bought a plant from last year was there today and when I told him how our lawn guy ran over the one we bought last year he said he would sell me one cheaper because of what happened. I have to pick it up next week.
The honey lady was there but she was so busy bs’ing with somebody that I didn’t even get a chance to say hello and ask if she knew where the coffee guy was as she took care of his stuff last year.
It was a great time anyway.
Hope you had fun on your Saturday.
Here it is another beautiful sunny Saturday. I am waiting for my friend to come over and then we can go to brunch and hit up the Farmer’s market. Sweet hubby sleeps on…………
Last night we saw the last installment of the Harry Potter franchise. It was a good movie and one that I would like to go see again; though thought that I would like to see it in 3-D if I do go. That could be a bit frightening in the scenes that involve Lord Voledmort’s snake, Nagini; especially when she rears up to strike someone. The girls are going to see it (again) in IMAX on Sunday so I will have to ask them how that is compared to seeing it in a regular theater.
Well, I have to get ready before she gets here. I just wanted to drop in and say hello. Mission accomplished!!
Yes, today I felt that chill in the air that usually hits about a few weeks before snow flies. I don’t like to feel it as it gives me an ache in my bones and a deep desire to snuggle under something warm and not leave the house. But today I left the house anyway and journeyed my way out to where it is even more country and the breeze had even more room to blow.
Today I went to visit my friend Lisa. I was sharing my one stroke painting stuff with her. She seems to want to do it and work on it together, which is great. I like having some girl time. She gave me bean soup for my lunch, which I ate while she fed her granddaughter, Mya, a little red headed pipsqueak who is really struggling to talk. Poor child isn’t even 18 months old and you can just tell that she will be a little chatter box.
Tonight finds me a bit chilled and reaching for the shrug that Momma crocheted me for my birthday. It comes in handy when one is just sitting and working on the computer. Or just sitting and reading or watching TV.
Well, that is about it for my thoughts at the moment. Catch ya later.
One of my friends sent me this and I just had one of the best laughs I have had lately. The subject matter isn’t a laughing matter for some – my point is why don’t you just answer the question???
Was the question that hard???????
And if that doesn’t give you enough food for thought fodder than watch this one and listen to how often the speech changes to fit the climate of the voters.
And if you can handle reading a 236 page book with an additional 54 pages of info and documentation BEFORE the election than I would suggest you read “The Case Against Barack Obama” by David Freddoso. If you still want to vote for this clown after reading that, than may God save us all.
I really wish that Ron Paul was still on the ballot!!
Here I go again – getting out of the habit of writing on the blog on a semi-regular basis!!
Really been busy with graduations, grad parties, birthday parties and geez Louise two more Saturdays and it will be Father’s Day…………. and what are we going to do for the guys????
Been talking with two different friends about the places they want to move to and what they are looking at – one has even been bidding on a house. Now the house has a really bad leak in the roof and they would have to repair that, the inside of the attic, and the wall of the room below – not sure at this point how much that would cost them and if that plus what they are bidding on the house would really be worth the money. I told them with so many foreclosed homes on the market (that is what they are bidding on) that maybe they should just keep looking. I’ve seen quite a few that are in better shape.
The other friends are looking for something to rent. Something with 2 or 3 bedrooms, a basement and at least a bath and a half. Little bit easier to help these folks look – seems I have a knack for burying my nose in newsprint for a decent amount of the day. Ask my family – I read the newspapers, cut out articles and coupons all while watching the news and sitcoms. (They forgot all the foodie shows that I watch, and I am NOT going to remind them!!)
Found out today that the old Craftsman guarantee works on the clothes that carry that label. My father had a pair of overalls that were losing those metal thingies on the end of the straps and they wouldn’t stay on so he took those back today and the store gave him a brand new pair – no charge!! You have up to two years to exchange your item for one of the same. Thought that, that was pretty cool so wanted to share it with you.
Other than that small blurb – nothing to terribly exciting has been going on.
With that said, am heading up to bed and taking a look at the TV before lights out.
