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,, 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.


Being part of the whole family.

Little Miss at her best, climbing all over Grammy and the dog at nap time. She will do anything to get out of taking a nap until she begins to rub her little eyes. That is the sign that she is more than ready for a nap and soon she will be asleep. Little Miss is now 13 months old and is learning new things every second. It is like the mind starving for information and wanting to be feed. It’s so neat to watch it at work while she tries to figure out some thing.

I wanted for so long to be a Grandfather and was so excited the day I became one. I am a proud grandfather of two grandkids. I am a lucky man for I have the chance to have one that lives near me but I am sad that one lives 8 hours away that I do not get to see everyday. I love them both in ways that is very hard to put into words, but how does one explain true joy?

This blog will be all about my life as a grandfather and my family that holds my heart dear. I am not sure if anyone will read it, but it will help me along the way keep things that I find dear to me as a record to refer back to from time to time.

I will take all comments if you wish to leave one and I am open to any suggestion that you may have regarding any post. I look forward to a wonderful time going forward with this blog.
