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.
