Music and what it brings to the soul.


Demo by National Park Radio <click here to listen to six tracks,(note: if you click on the sound wave or the orange arrow next to the title demo it will play all six songs for you). 

I have always enjoyed music as far back I as I can remember, being a kid I remember some of the best songs from way back in the late 60s, 70s, 80s, and to present day. I never have been limited to any one artist or type of music, my soul desires more than that. The talent that comes from the artist , the sound, the lyrics, and the style in which they play or perform. Above is one example of a group of young men from the south in Arkansas writing the songs and performing them for crowds all over the USA. You can find songs from them on facebook, soundcloud.com, YouTube, and some other song networks. They have a good folk sound and they’re family men that do this for the love of the music, it is what their souls desire them to do.

When I first found these guys I played a song called December for Little Miss, she was only about four or five months old, and she was dancing in her seat to the song. I video taped it and sent it to one of the band members via facebook and these guys got a kick out of it. They came to Colorado a few months later, but I was not able to get off work to go see them perform. I have seen them via YouTube and I will someday see the live. One of the band members went to CU in Boulder, CO. so they come back here at least once and awhile to perform for the college kids.

Please check them out on the soundcloud, youtube, and facebook you might even get a free song download from one of the places.

Life with pictures….2014

Life with pictures….2014

It’s important to me to capture every single moment that I can, I am not sure why I feel this way, but I do.

Maybe it is because life is so short that we miss so much in our everyday life, and we miss those special moments never to get them back.

I know I missed way to many years of my daughters growing up with the kind of work I do, that now I do not want to miss the growing up of my grandchildren. At one time I was an over the road truck driver being gone from home weeks at a time. Missing so much of the growth of my daughters, now that I am home everyday I do not want to miss this time with the grandbabies.

I will take pictures to keep the memory of the day or the event for a lifetime. I have trained the granddaughter pretty well so far how to pose for a picture but I think I need to work on her smile for the camera, just a little more.

I have an idea!


I have an idea!

While I was working last night, I thought maybe it would be fun to add a page on this blog that would be of a personal daily must do kind of thing. This is what I am thinking of doing and I would like some input from folks on it and if you would also be interested in doing the same.

Start a new page called the (Daily Do) and what will be on this page is one main word for each day.

Example: Laughter

The way I want this to play out is that we take the one word and we try to make it happened with people we talk to during our day. Sometimes it might just be one person you will find that needs the word or perhaps many. Then I want you to write a short comment in the post of one experience what happened when you used the word.

Lets start with this one word given here today and use this post as a sample post to see if it will work before I start a whole another page.

 Rules on what you can do with the word:

1- you can use it with everyone you meet in a sentence, and see their reaction.

2- you can make someone do the word, and see their reaction.

3- you can do the word over and over again while talking to a person, and get their reaction.

I think this idea will be a lot of fun if we try it for a week each day.

Things to do….


Some of us men get stumped with things to do with little ones and girls seem to be harder for some reason. Men or most men never played with dolls or had a tea party or played house. It is a hard thing for us to get our minds around. Since it was never important to us like link-in-logs, playing cars, blowing things up, or playing cowboys and Indians.

However, all is not lost, girls love making noise from banging on drums, boxes, tables, or anything that will make a sound. You can use this to your advantage in many ways, one example is; I have been trying to teach Little Miss rhythm while she is banging on things and making a game out of it. I have found another little trait in little girls that I kind of known was in the older ones but as it seems to be a trait that is breed into them from birth. If you take a doll or stuff animal and show that you are loving on it or caressing it they will stop what ever else they’re doing to come and do the same thing. It is funny to see them do this but it is also cute. I guess that is what makes them good mothers later in life. All kids like to ride on your shoulders from time to time and most like to play giddy up or move fast in the up and down movement. Girls love to swing in the swing, color in coloring books, be read to, and tickled to no end. Well, dads and granddads there is no excuse to take the time to play with the kids, and let me tell you, there is nothing more important to them than you spending time with them.

PHOTO DAY

Little Miss had a photo shoot today with a professional photographer and lets just say she had lots of fun while the rest of us made fools of ourselves.
We could not get this little one to smile for any reason, she just wanted to play with items around the shop. To be honest she was just being a normal little one in a new place. Even though she has been there many times it was her first time where she could move on her own and well, that was fun for her.
The rest of us tried and tried but the smiles where far between but we did get some out of her, not as many as we would like. Grammy and I think all the pictures smiles or not are good. We like to see her in her everyday style any way.

If you live in the Denver, CO area and would like a excellent photographer just click on the picture to check out the person we use.
