American Badass Portable Grill

Still being in Kid Rock mode since the new album is out I thought I would share some pictures of my new grill I got this summer. I had been in the market for a small grill for some time. I have no room for storage of a large grill and besides with just me and my husband most times it was not a practical purchase. I have looked and even purchased a small grill a few years ago. It cost about $40 and was lucky to make it through one summer. It was small but was cheaply made with uneven spiderly legs. I actually felt it was not safe to use. To the trash it went!
When Kid Rock introduced the grill this spring of course I knew I had to have one. I was in the market and didn't just want it to say I had to have it, I really needed it. The charcoal grill is $99.95 or 5 payments of $19.99 on your credit card or bank account. I purchased the charcoal grill because that is a personal preference. You can also purchase a gas-grill which is $124.95 or 5 payments of $24.99.  Free standard shippi…

Music Monday - Kid Rock (Sweet Southern Sugar)

Kid Rock’s latest release Sweet Southern Sugar hit airwaves Friday, November 3. I anxiously awaited my postman on Saturday since I had preordered the CD. He didn't let me down and it arrived about noon.  Since I didn't have anything going on I popped it in and turned it up. I loved it from start to finish and didn't feel the urge to skip over any of the songs. That's what I call a great album! On the last few albums there's been at least one that I skip over and with the name of the new album I thought maybe he might slip completely over that sugar mountain. Luckily for me, most of the tracks are rockin' rock 'n roll which I love. Not much of a country fan so I was tickled! Now with a week of listening under my belt I'd have to say this is by far one of his best albums. 

I had already heard the first three songs and saw the videos for those. Greatest Show on Earth is a strong start with a pounding beat. The video is lots of footage from previous concer…

To be a dog person I sure have a lot of cats!

I have always considered myself a dog person because I like dogs better than I like cats. Cats are just too standoffish for me or at least the feral ones that I always have are. Very aloof and so irritating! 
I have had many dogs getting my first one at age 4. He was the runt of the litter and I named him Tootsie. He went everywhere I went growing up horseback riding, riding bikes or walking I remember he was always there. He lived until I was 22. I had multiple dogs sometimes and then I went for a few years with no pets whatsoever when I lived in the burbs. Then a few months after we moved back to the country my hubby wanted to buy me a puppy. I wanted a Bischon after watching a little one win the Westminster a few years beforehand. Her name was easy as I had been hearing the old song Some Velvet Morning by Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra. It kept popping up on my iPod so Fadra is her name. She is the best little furry buddy a girl could ask for!
I don't think I ever specificall…

Concert Series: Kid Rock (Cheap Date Tour)

This post was in my drafts. I don't know why I never finished it up. This one and the one of me and the lone goose (which I still haven't recalled). I guess I got so wound up with looking for a job after I lost mine that I pushed so much stuff aside. You don't realize until you go back to something what you left hanging. I'm surprised I even got the pics uploaded. Anyway, the concert was August of 2015 and so, so much fun! I posted about First Kiss when it first came out which you can read about here.
About half way through he started playing Johnny Cash which is my favorite and I got so excited I dropped my camera. Because, of course, I want him to be my Johnny Cash! I looked and looked and finally my friend pointed it out in the middle of my cup of frozen Mike's Hard Lemonade. It even took one last pic on the way down! She pecked me on the shoulder and didn't miss a beat as she was moving to the groove. No more pics that evening. It's absolutely amazing …

So what have I been up to?

Modcloth Inspired Interpretation Dress
Labor Day weekend last year I broke my wrist in two places and had to have surgery. I was using a chair to climb up to clean out a cobweb in the corner above my fireplace. When I stepped back down onto the chair I missed it completely. I tried to catch myself with my left hand which, believe you me, was NOT a good idea! Needless to say, since that time I have purchased a step stool.

The surgeon placed what I considered to be a huge pin through my wrist to hold the bones together and in place for 6 weeks. Followed by 6 weeks of physical therapy. OMG how painful was all that! Even after well over a year it still hurts some everyday and occasionally I still have some swelling. Doing my job one-handed and having my hubby dress me was certainly something I had never experienced and not my cup of tea but you gotta do what you gotta do. A week beforehand I had just purchased a new car with a stick shift so I had to have someone drive me around for awhile…

Just a girl and a goose

So in doing a little blog cleaning I came across a few draft posts with no content whatsoever except for this one. Just one lonely picture of me and this goose having a stare off. Why? I have no idea. When? I have no idea. Where? I have no idea. Who took the photo? I have no idea. Fun times? I'm sure! I must have been leaving the bar 😉
