Music Giveaway!

You know I have never talked about music on my blog. Music is kinda a personal choice to me. I like everything from Mozart to Snoop Dogg. Well, that may be a bit of a stretch but I do like ALL kinds of music. However I dont normally tell others what kinda music they should listen to. Having said that….you have to hear this band.

Yes, I have a particular interest in this band. My little grandson’s mom is in this band…Sons of William. Jen is an amazing musician and believe me, her talent has rubbed off on my little sweetie Sam.

Do yourself a favor and visit their myspace link above and take a listen. And then leave me a comment and I will put your name in my BIG old mason jar and you could win a copy of their CD. It really is good. No, its great. Blues/rock…personal. Their single being played on smart radio stations is Smile. Its amazing…but I think my favorite is Vicious World.

I am just a bit impressed with this group. And frankly, even if I didn’t have a personal interest, I would still be listening to them. Drawing will be held on December 1st!

Side note: Zach is doing fairly well considering his ordeal last night. Continue to keep him in your thoughts. This will not be easy to get over. Our family has never had a violent experience and really dont know how to feel about it.

We have much to be thankful for tonight.

My oldest son was robbed at gunpoint tonight. He and another employee were closing (he works for a mobile phone company) and some men came in with guns. They put the gun to my son’s head, duct taped him up and locked him in a storage room. They forced the other employee into the back and took all the money from the safe. My son was able to get out of the tape and call 911. I am shaking. And so mad. I cannot believe people. They held a gun to his head. I am so stunned. My tummy hurts. He assured me he is fine. Just a little bruised where they shoved him down and duct taped his hands behind him and then shoved him in the storage room.

He’s home. He is a bit shook up. To say the least. All he could think of was his little son. We are very thankful and realize how in a split second it all could have been different. On the security camera he saw where the person tried to get back in the storage room with him after he put him in there – thank goodness it had a key pad lock thing. The guy probably realized he hadnt take Zach’s phone. Or wallet. I dont think I will be okay for a while. It just makes me sick.

Please when you are shopping at night be aware of your surroundings. Be cautious. It is a bad time of year for this kind of thing. Lots of money changing hands.

I am a little nauseous. AND so so so thankful he is okay. He said the other employee was not doing well at all.

Christmas Past

I was digging thru some things (supposed to be cleaning but you know how that goes)and found this picture…

On the back it says Christmas 1962.  I would have been 3. Cool car huh? It was turquoise with a white stripe. I remember it very well.  And how about those petticoats? Scratchy I would imagine.   This picture was taken at my paternal grandparent’s house.  Just thought I would share it.
