Mother's Day - another busy day

We have been busy as usual. Any one who knows Rick, knows that being busy is an understatement for Rick Streetman. He truly is the "Energized Bunny."  Mother's Day was no exception. We did church and a quick lunch - then the work began. We had heifers in the corral to take to Decateur to the sale. However, as we ran them down the chute they broke out. Next on the list was to mow and weed eat. I mowed with BAD BOY and Rick weed-eated. Then he finished painting the pipe and cable fence. After this we went to Tractor Supply to get some panels for the corral. We then went to the farm and started welding the place the cows broke out, then we welded the panels in. Next it was time to finish our yard work - watering and a little weeding. After almost 8 hours of work we got to sit down. He made the comment that his butt was dragging. I wanted to laugh at him, but I didn't out loud. I am so fortunate to have someone that is not LAZY and is so willing to work.

God blessed us with such a beautiful day to be outside.

Music to my Ears

      Hello, world. I am still alive. I have just been busy. There are several things that I need to write about to catch up, but I decided that I would catch up on the great music experiences that we have had the last month. It all started with the Broadway Musical - The Jersey Boys that we went to see while we were in Vegas. Rick and I have seen Frankie Valle in person, so I did not know what to expect to see a story about his life. It was great. A few times the language was a little rougher than I like, however, the reason the different songs were written was the highlight for me.
       Next we went to see a Chicago concert. It might make one of my top ten concerts of all times. The music was very loud, and your chest did vibrate. I love brass in a band - and Chicago has brass. After this we saw Terry Fator, who I have seen several times before. He and his dummies are so entertaining. While watching him and his dummies, you forget that he is only one man and is responsible for all the voices and songs.
      This weekend we went to see the Doobie Brothers. The song "I'd like to hear some Funkie Dixieland Pretty Mama, come and take me by the hand......" is still in my head. I am lucky that music is a huge part of my life, even though I have NO rhythm and cannot sing. I am blessed that music is something that Rick and I both share a passion for.
