..exploring this great big world, one click at a time


We have rain!!!!! *does happy dance*

It's been awhile!!

It's been awhile since I posted here. Sometimes life gets in the way of fun huh?

The beginning of August brought school and work back and I've been a busy mama trying to get back in the routine again. Ok it was easy for me..harder for my 14 yr old daughter who thinks the world revolves around her. ha!
But we're making it and the weather has gotten to be unbearable now with the 108 degree heat index's. Can we say READY FOR FALL???
Bring forth the scarecrows and hay bales..I'm ready for October! lol

August did leave us some adorable lil baby Mockingbirds though. I'm surprised the cat has left the mother alone with the eggs long enough for them to hatch!
Take a lookie..

Wappapello Lake

Ok so we decided to take a little trip to Lake Wappapello in Missouri yesterday, due to the fact that I feel the need to take my family on little excursions every now and then. Ok so sometimes I have to drag them..they'll thank me later.
At least they usually do!
This time we ran into trouble..the cell phone was stolen. Ok so dear hubby left it in the men's bathroom unsupervised for 45 minutes. It's still stolen!

Anyone want to donate a phone??

We still had a little fun before the phone incident and despite the bad weather looming over us.

Cooling off at the pool!

It's HOT! Go swimming!

The temps have risen in Tennessee and what better way to cool off than going to the pool! If you don't have a pool nearby, get to a lake, a pond..a bathtub..anything! Just stay cool ok?

Seems we have a visitor in our pear tree. Mockingbird eggs!

OLR Show May 2005

What can I say? This show rocked! You know how sometimes you're in no hurray to get to a show because you know the opening bands aren't that great so you wait for the better bands to come on? This is not the case here.
Jackson Tn. was rocked off the planet last night by some awesome performances by Bleak Reality, Faktion, One Less Reason and Day of Fire. Every band came out to entertain and that's exactly what they did.
Stephen and his guys from Bleak showed Jackson more love than ever by playing a tight set. These guys get better and better with each show. You can hear it in the music and the vocals and believe me the crowd noticed.
Ryan and the guys from Faktion brought a little bit of Tx. back to Tn. last night, covering the majority of the songs from their cd plus a cover of Chevelle's Comfortable Liar. They have an incredible stage prescence and you have no doubt that you're witnessing the next band to blow out of the water. When the Batman Begins soundtrack hits shelves..you better grab one!
One Less Reason never ceases to impress us with each show. Releasing their new CD, "everydaylife", the boys showed us exactly what rock stars are made of. From the beginning to end they give it their all and the fans give it back by singing louder than ever. Really B ad Analogy kicks major tail..keep your ears tuned into The Rocket (102.3 fm) for more of this one.
Day of Fire ended the night with explosive action by Josh Brown and his guys. Their hard rock melodies and intense lyrics keep the crowd wondering if it's live or Memorex. Trust me..it was live baby! Jackson is ready for the next DOF show to hit soon..this one was just a taste.
Lots of blood sweat and even a few tears were put into this show and we the fans appreciate every part of the process. Thank you guys for letting West Tn. rock hard with you! \/
