Happy Memorial Day!

Thank a service man or woman if you see them!

Stay tuned for a music review later in the week! Ms. Hanson-dePaula has contacted me again about an album for a new artist, asking me to give it a listen. This time, instead of an artist I've known and loved for 20 years, she sent a second album from someone with whom I'm completely unfamiliar. Amy Courts, the artist, will be releasing the album, titled These Cold and Rusted Lungs. Immediately I was drawn to its title.

Ms. Courts has suddenly become a stepmother. The album's content is a little heavy lyrically, which I love. But I'm not reviewing it yet! When I do I'll give you links and all kinds of fun stuff, as well as a release date.


Yes, I've chosen to sneak this picture in under the above announcement rather than headline with it. Just in case Marguerite isn't paying attention. Who am I kidding? She's always paying attention. But maybe she's busy thinking about what movie she'll see this weekend, or where to buy a house (Tulsa! Think Tulsa!). Maybe she won't see this picture.

Wasn't she the cutest thing ever? I chose The Younger Years, starting you all off easy. The little guy next to her is our baby brother. Not Lil' Bro, but the genius scientist working on a doctorate somewhere south of here. For future reference, I called him Chewy. Chewy he is.

Y'all have a happy and safe Memorial Day! Ours began with a hail storm, about a quarter to six this morning. It didn't want to end! So glad our roof hadn't yet been replaced.

Until I write again ...

Flea... hon. You know I lurve you right? Can we talk about how one does a proper retaliation for an Annoy-a-tron? You don't put the cutest stinkin' picture you can find up! No! Go for the snot on her face photos, the bad hair cut pictures, the goofy date polaroids. Tsk Tsk Tsk.. and I thought you'd be a pro.

awww...she was pretty cute! Looks are deceiving, then, huh?

and Chewy is adorable too. Did you come up with that handle while watching Star Wars? Is he hairy now? Just wonderin'.
