Broken refrigerator, Broken garage door, Broken dish network receiver, Broken truck, Broken gate (actually 2 broken gates), on the verge of being broken hot water heater, a rattling something in my car window that is most likely broken, and the list is growing..........

Truck repaired - check.
Refrigerator repaired - check.
Garage Door repaired - check.
Dish Receiver on it's way, hopefully check.  In the meantime, we are w/o television for 4 days.  Yes, probably a good thing, but you try it with 2 kids and let me know how that goes :)
Still have to make some phone calls on the gates...
Rattling car window will have to wait (although it's making it hard for me to hear Sam Bradley while driving :)

When did they quit making things that last?

Broken hearted little girl.  Missing her grandmother.  This will take longer to repair.  We are all feeling broken over this, especially with Thanksgiving/Christmas.

Broken portable DVD player.  Suffered a little boy's cowboy boot to the screen.  Road trip to Mississippi in the near future.  May result in broken parents' nerves.

Thankful for what is not broken right now.

Sam Bradley in Dallas - Zuni

I think most of  you know, I am a huge fan of live music - specifically guitar, acoustic - folksy, rock, soul, alternative, country-ish (no top 20 stuff please), indie - singer/songwriters.....

I had the opportunity to see one of my top favorites - Sam Bradley Friday night in Dallas at the House of Blues!  Sam played with guitarist, John Notto - these guys put on a great show; although I was a little bummed because I am height challenged, and this is one of those venues where you need to be at least 6 feet tall in order to see the stage.  My friend and I got sandwiched in the middle of the crowd, and we both started getting claustrophobic, so we crawled out and wound up on the side of the room - right behind a speaker - ah, but oh well - such is life.  Sam opened for Brooke Fraser - I would have preferred to see Sam perform the whole show - but.....still.... ah well, what could I do.  Except ask the guy in front of me if I could sit on his shoulders, but.....that wasssna gonna happen - errmmmm.   He is such a talented musician/singer and a gentleman to boot - he obliged me with a photo - along with each and every one of his fans.

I'm not a music critic by any stretch, but I know what I like - and I love Sam's music - check out his new EP, titled Zuni - you can find more info here.  You can also visit his MySpace page and have a listen to several of his songs -

I'm so happy to have been able to see him perform again!  It's great to see people in their element and following their dreams - it's very inspirational - it's all good - wishing him the best of luck!
This song - Sea Blue - is one of my favorites - please watch - I think you'll really like it!

I'm off to visit my sewing machine.  I've got some projects to get completed before another Trunk Show on Thursday and..... a new collection of songs to listen to!  (oh... and the kiddies are entertaining themselves by destroying my kitchen with playdoh..... it's all good :)

Photos of our Fall

Thinking he's a big boy, driving a BIG tractor
Spidey, the Bearcat Cheerleader, and our sweet Doggie

This one is blurry I know, but I love seeing her running with wild abandon!
Fall Ball season ended for us on Saturday - I'm proud of them both!
