Two Post Day

Yeah, because I can't just add photos once a week and be done with it. In my opinion, a blog is not a blog without some words mixed in. After all, I've got something to say too.

So, two posts in one day...with more photos just because I can. I'm even going to add a video for you:



If, for some reason, you cannot view the video...here's the url: Slow Cooking Cover at The Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival Chris is on the right playing lead guitar...Jon is 2nd from the left on the big black bass.

Alright, so I'm still busy. Running to and from work is getting easier. I hope to soon take the long way home depending on what time I can afford. School starts next week. Nobody really wants to go. I don't blame them.

Chris is still building his guitar. It's a thing of beauty...working on the neck right now and should have it together and complete by Christmas. He started working on it in March. That's a lot of hours. He's working with some gifted, precise guys on this...I say take as long as it takes.

Chris and Jon have been jamming hard and long on guitars lately. Jon, as far as I can tell, can play anything at all. I'm his father...but I can tell these things. They've taken to the blues these days. I really should catch some of it on video. Mind boggling solos, slides, etc.

Hurricane Bill came and washed the humidity away. Lots of wind and rain...major mess along the coast. Devastating really. Lots of erosion and mess. I could not believe the hundreds of giant lobster claws washed up on shore. Bill raked the ocean floor...ravaged it. No exaggeration, these lobster claws were as big as oven mitts. I didn't have my camera with me to take pics. Here are a few other recent photos from a trip to Carter's Beach in Port Mouton, Nova Scotia...part of the same set as the previous photos...the Wordless Wednesday pics.




Thanks for coming by.

Thanks for the wonderful photo's. I'll have to wait until I get home to hear the Slow Cooking Cover Video...

As long as everyone in safe after Bill, that's what matters, mother nature looks after herself, in one shape or form.

Love those pictures and the video too. I couldn't wait for you to hear our son's music - of all the people on the net, you were the one I wanted to hear it. The recording wasn't the best, and it wasn't the best I've heard him sing, but I loved it all anyway. Especially the accordion playing - that's self taught, off his base of piano. Anyway, keep those SCC videos coming - I love them!

Michelle, thank you so much. I shared them with Victoria this morning and she loves them too. He's very creative...and has such a distinct and warm voice. Makes me want to hear more. Lovely recordings on their own...but I often use a multi-track recording program...I'd be curious to see what C & J might add for fills and stuff. I may get them to experiment. I'll let you know how that goes. If it turns out to be anything, I'll email the mp3 files to you...cross border and coast to coast. Sounds like fun eh?

The Slow Cooking Cover sure does a great rendition of a really cool song. Loved it. The lead girl sure is certainly comfortable with the crowd. How fun to be a part of such talent.

I'm sold on Slow Cookers, especially when they're as talented as your brood is. And, wow, what photos you're publishing now. Just...wow.
