dreaming about the future (concerts)

I'd love to hear any of these non standard concert songs:

We are the People (Our Parents Warned Us About)
Boat Drinks* yes, I know I have heard this in concert

I'd be thrilled with these songs:

When the Coast is Clear
Northeast Texas Women

I'd cry and probably be hoarse from screaming with these songs:

Love in the Library
Delaney Talks to Statues
Brand New Country Star
Defying Gravity

Josh is holding out for:

Death of an Unpopular Poet
Pacing the Cage

Stars Upon Thars

Yes, there are star bellied sneeches and then there are those without. I do love this story. I would ALMOST tell you that it is my favorite Seuss tale.

Ah, until you turn a few pages and see What was I Afraid of?

I have become known at my Preschool as a true lover of this story. I read it with great enthusiasm and I often want to chuckle a bit. "Oh save me from those pale green pants with no one inside them." That is funny stuff.

Empty pants walking down the street, or fishing for Doubt Trout in Roover River, and zooming a bicycle around town--silly, but some how hilarious to me. Perhaps I have found a wonderful home as a Preschool Teacher.

Alabama on a Saturday Night

I spent my last Saturday night in the most delightful way--Jimmy Buffett and Band was in Birmingham.

It sounds dramatic, but it is true---it was like Christmas morning in anticipation. I was eager and anxious for the glorious event.

Although I have been to a few JB concerts before, this one was AMAZING. Fins were going left and right, a few Stars Fell on Alabama, and I hear AL really is Sweet Home Alabama.

Breathe Deep


I can't breathe out my nose. Ugh!

This made me think of one of my favorite songs.

Oh wait...

Delaney is studying for a test on The Solar System. She is telling me she needs to know the planets in order and that is easy. Claire hears us and says that's easy... Matthew, Mark, Luke...oh wait. Then she begins to recite the planets.

Artsy Crafty Moment

I made this from a box of movie and concert tickets and various mementoes. I used an old bulletin board that I spray painted brown.

I am going to hang this above my table/desk.
