I finally got my mower running yesterday. All it took was a $2.75 part. It's amazing how something so small can shut you down.

I won't have much time to work on the Camaro this week. Our band has a gig this weekend! It's been a long time since we were all able to get together to play somewhere, so it'll be a lot of fun. It's an outdoor concert in a park here in Claxton, a bring your own picnic kind of afternoon. I love that stuff!

I hope y'all have a great day!
Glad you got your mower fixed, and that it wasn't an expensive part!

I wish I could come hear your band play!! It sounds like a great time
Have fun!!!

Btw, what type of music do you play? And what's your band's name?

xx

If you can see at the bottom of the window in my livingroom, this is my little dog, Chico that waits for me to come home. He does this every time I am out for the day.

Then there is Charlie my cat who is sitting in his cat tree hanging his head out of the blinds sound asleep. You can tell he is so "excited" to see me! Lol!

What happened today in Boston was tragic....gut-wrenching even....my Pop said that it's a shame what the world is coming to and how tragic it is...and in all of his infinite wisdom (and he is much smarter than me)....I told him I agreed...and disagreed.

Today, a Twitter and Facebook account that says it is run by Clark Griswold (it's funny and I wish there was more of that in our world) had a great post. It said something like this...."Some people say humanity is sick. The bombers are sick. The humanity is the outpouring of people who helped."

While it scares me that I'm bringing a kid into this world, it still comforts me to know that there were people running towards the explosion after it occured.....all to help.

God bless Boston.
I read that too as well as the one Made put on from Mr Rogers, something we sometimes forget, the amazing people who run towards the danger to help others.
There are so many more wonderful people in this world than those who want to hurt.

At least Penny looks excited! My little doggy sits at the window barking and Charlie just sleeps through it. I will come in with my dogs jumping all over me then I look at my sleeping Charlie and say, "Calm down, Charlie, don't get too excited now"! LOL!!!

He really is a very lovable kitty. I call him my rag doll, he just flops in my arms when I pick him up.
