Concert Series - Walter Trout

Saturday was our yearly celebration of my best friend's birthday. Most years we hit up the Blues Festival at the Fraze Pavilion and this year was no exception. Although, we don't make it every year, it's always a great time when we do. You can see us from last year here. Usually it's just me and her so we can catch up but this year a friend from out of town was visiting her cousin so they joined us. Needless to say rather than catch up time it was party time. Even though the festival is all day we went later on in the day to avoid the heat and because the headliner was who we wanted to see the most. Mr. Walter Trout was amazing! If you love a great blues guitarist I highly recommend giving him a listen. 






Walter said he had cracked ribs so he could not bend over to hug Jennifer but she had a death grip on him anyways! What a nice guy he was!

As you can see...tanks, shorts and sandals were the wear of the day. I had a toenail ripped off by a bathroom door wearing sandal…

My photos of Stephen King's house....

In light of the premiere of the new Stephen King mini series, Under The Dome, tonight I thought I would post my pictures of his house an internet friend took for me. A few years ago I was contacted by a lady through my my eBay store. She wanted me to make a Tinkerbell hat for her daughter. I told her I could get an applique and sew it to a hat of the same colors but that was the best I could do. She thought that idea would work so I put together something for her. It was really cute! After she received it she was so thrilled with it she wrote me to thank me. As it turned out we got to talking and she told me her daughter was going through chemo and that she hadn't taken the hat off. She said she was tickled pink! I decided to make her a few more hats in different colors and send to her as a surprise and a gift. 
At one point in our conversations it came up that she lived in Maine. I told her I was a huge fan of Stephen King's and I would love to visit Maine but figured I'…

Stephen King - Under The Dome

I am so excited about the new mini-series coming up based on Stephen King's book "Under the Dome". The book was released in November of 2009 but I didn't get around to reading it until the next fall at the same time as the story is set. I usually read all of Stephen's novels but I can't keep up with him. I read it and loved it so I even dreamed about it. Stephen's stories always pull me in like I am a part of the story somehow. They are so real, yet so unreal at the same time. I guess that's what I love about them! I must say that I don't like everything he writes, though. He even gets too creepy for me sometimes! Anyway, when I saw they were finally making a movie about the story I decided to read the book again. After seeing promos that appeared to be different than the book I wanted to refresh my memory. I loved it as much the second go round as the first! It's about a small town in Maine that has an impregnable dome drop over it and all t…

The lilies are in bloom

I just love lilies! When we first moved into our house I realized these were all over the place. Of course, lots were in places I didn't need them. My granddaughter and I dug up a bunch and planted a flower row around a wooded area we wanted to keep as a wooded area. It took forever but after some hard work we had a nice little row. They have spread quite a bit and this year they are really popping! All our hard work has paid off. Lilies are easy to grow and there are lots of different kinds and colors. In looking for a link for you to read all about them I came upon the North America Lily Society. Who knew they were so popular that they have a society all their own. Everything you want to know about lilies you can find there or you can join up. I'm sure a membership card would be pretty impressive! lol  




I have been working on some ideas for a new blog layout and after getting my thoughts together I have someone working on it for me. I'm very excited! I hope to have a be…

Camera Wi-Fi explained...well a little bit anyway!

On Saturday I was walking by a window in my kitchen when I caught something red out of the corner of my eye and I thought, what is that, a small dog with a red collar?. I peeked out the blinds and to my surprise there sat Woody, that red-headed woodpecker I've been trying to get a picture of for four years now. He was pecking at a tree stump of a dead tree which had just been cut down across the street. He is very sly, even if he's on a tree out back whenever I grab my camera he moves to the other side of the tree just outta sight but still pecking away. Then if I move closer he flies away. It's been infuriating! I went to grab my phone and it occurred to me that I would never get a good zoomed in picture with my iPhone so I went looking for my new camera. I mean, what did it matter, he was likely to be long gone before I got back anyway. Surprise again, there he was. He even appeared to be posing for me :o) I was so excited! Finally a good picture!
Now normally to upload…
