that quilt is amazing. I don't often see such machine embroidery.

glad to hear those nasty storms didn't do too much. living in Oklahoma for a few years taught me to listen to the weatherman when he said take cover.

Well, I'm quite eclectic as well. I go from jam bands to indie rock to country then classic rock. Really depends on which way the wind is blowing. Both my 17 year old son and 15 year old daughter have been playing guitar since they were 6. They are fantastic and have an amazing ear for music, tone, rhythm, etc. So, we have some pretty cool nights around the fire playing instruments and singing.

I remember Barbara talking about you and your love of cooking. Another thing we have in common. In fact, I'm trying to decide what to fix on the grill tonight. Leaning towards pork.

Thank you BadMoon.....I love your photos. Music is such an integral part of my life and my kid's lives too. My son's first concert was Ozzie and Zac Wild. I think I've done a pretty good job a raising them right. LOL. Keep in touch. Looks like we've got a lot of cool things in common.

Yes I hope it does too. :) Thanks for being a friend out here! :)

You were right, visited a friend in Indy for a long weekend, glad the shoulder happened after! Tripped over a dog gate. Ni driving for a good month; every car in our driveway is stick lol Thanks for the good wishes my friend.

Hah Badmoon, I check my page once every few months it seems and I completely missed the blog post on Cleveland sports teams.

These are not the worst of times, only the latest. The Fumble, the Drive, the Shot, the curse of Rocky Colavito — library shelves groan with the agony of Cleveland fans.

Truer words have never been spoken. Here's to another season of futility!

WOW that looks amazing... where's my bib, I'm drooling....

Twice smoked pulled pork? You've been holding back on me! Do tell ;)

Awesome! Thanks again for the 3-2-1 and recipe ;)
