1. Hmmm.  The presidential debate was less than inspiring. Owen came and watched it with us until he started to nod off. Leo was invited but politely declined.  At one point, Owen tipped his head to one side and said, "Romney seems as though he thinks he's better than us but he's trying to make us think he's one of us."

Good lord I love that child.

2. Picture day at middle school today. We told Leo he was NOT allowed to throw his school pictures away this year. He grumbled but agreed.

3. I am getting very excited for the Kevin Gordon show next Friday. Honest….this is going to be a GOOD one!! It'll be a trio….yay!  I still gotta figure out what I'm cooking though….that's my task for this weekend.



4. Nice write up of Ian Hunter's new album over here. I like that it's titled "Ian Hunter Never Gets Old." Indeed.

5. Damn but I wish I could have caught Amy Rigby and Wreckless Eric on their current trek through the Midwest. I LOVE this song from their new album….classic, classic Amy….


6. And that's all…..(said in Ian Hunter's voice)….

  1. Owen’s observation is dead on. At one smirky moment Rachel commented, “Why is he smiling? That’s a fake smile. He doesn’t mean anything nice.” Kids are pretty good at spotting such things. Your Owen is one of the brightest most tuned in kids I’ve run across. I’m excited to see what kind of adult he’ll be. Glad to know him.

  2. re the Kevin video, not great audio but much better w/ headphones. God I love Kevin Gordon! Also Joe McMahan on lead guitar, Martin Lynds on drums, Steph Dickinson on bass and Melissa Mathes on bgvs.
    I don’t know who the third person of the trio is coming to SLHC, but Steph will be playing bass! YAY!!!!!! The last time KG took his trio out, with Steph, some guy in Des Moines asked her to marry him! hahahaha
    This is going to be a GREAT show!

  3. Hey Van and Cynthia,
    This will be a spectacular show!!
    Morey is on drums for this show (more on this later).
    Van-when I red your comment above, I originally though that said Meliss Mathes on bvgs. (beverages). A one-track mind is what I have, heh.
    Okay, and do me a favor…request ‘Pueblo Dog’ for me. Please. And Van can record it.
    I agree with Joanne….Owen is tuned in!

  4. I agree with everything that JoAnne wrote…and Owen is so spot on. Looking forward to seeing Kevin Gordon too!
