Loyal blog viewers will notice a change around here. I can get bored with styles, so I like to change things up now and again. So, here's my new blue designs. The pictures are of the Gulf Coast taken during one of our many vacations. My husband is the picture taker in the family and I think he does a pretty darn good job! Blue is not a color that I would choose. But, since I wanted to change my blog picture to the sea side one, I decided that I would go for a whole ocean type feel. Maybe I'm ready for a beach vacation....

Back Troubles

I'm down in my back again....ARGH!! I've been to the chiropractor, but I'm still sore, very sore. I've been on and off the ice for days, sleeping on the reclining couch, and doing the 'nursing home shuffle'. But, I have had the absolute best care from my wonderful husband. He'd do everything for me, if I would let him. I have this stubborn, independent streak, and I don't want to be a burden to him or ever take advantage of his support. I can't ever express in words how fabulous he is to me, but I can relate what our son said. Last night, Art asked if he could get anything for me, or do anything for me and I said no. So, Tad says, "Dad, you're such a wonderful husband. I hope that I'm as good to my wife as you are to Mom." What a sweetheart my child is... he takes after his dad of course.

Peep Show

Yeah, I know it's in bad taste, but I thought it was too cute. Well, for a Redneck Easter, it'd be great....

Call me "Crazy", but I've just always liked him, I suppose it's the rebel thing he's got going on, I dunno. He's got an earthy tone to his voice and his talents on that old beat up, raggedy guitar are unmatched. Granted, he's downright kooky, but in our parts of the country he'd be considered 'eccentric'. So, enjoy this video. As I understand it, this is his new release. See how many celebrities you can spot.

Angel Eyes

The effect music has is amazing. The emotions that arise, how it inspires, the transformations it can bring about, are truly amazing. How notes, words, chord progressions come together from talented songwriters, is in my opinion, a miracle. Upon hearing certain songs, I am instantly transported back to the first time I heard them, recollecting exactly where I was, who I was with, what I was doing or wearing. I remember the first time I heard this song, "Angel Eyes". I was still in high school, in my vehicle on my way to my after school job, and I was blown away. It was right around the time I met a particular guy, who played guitar in a band. When I later saw the video for "Angel Eyes", I was further blown away with the fact that this new guy in my life greatly resembled the artist. I shared my love of this song with that special guy and of course being the music afficiando that he is, informed me that the artist, Jeff Healey, was blind. I was dumbfounded. He was a truly amazing artist and his song, "Angel Eyes" became one of our 'songs'. Unfortunately I learned today that this artist, Jeff Healey, passed away at the very young age of 41. He had battled cancer, the cause of his blindness, for most of his short life. He leaves behind a wife and two children, and many fans. And one couple in Tennessee thankful for this special song.

Rest in peace, Jeff.
