Hubby and I finally got to have a date last night. He met a man at work who has put together a new Texas Country Band. This guy owns the band's bus and has had KB work on all the tires for the bus. The Band is the http://www.benjiallenmusic.com/. They are really good probably because there is mainly old guys in the band. Anyway, they are going to be at Gators -Cedar Creek Lake next Saturday and if you want to go listen to some really good music, you should go. We're going to try to be there. They'll be opening for Wade Bowen that night (I think) and for Wade several places so go check 'em out. KB and I danced our old legs off last night and they not only play their music but alot of the good old Merle Haggard, George Jones, Tracy Lawrence, George Strait, Gary Stewart, the list goes on and on. We left a little early because we had quite a ways to drive, so I know it got even better.
We went to the Hog Creek IceHouse right outside of Waco on Highway 6 and it's really a neat place. By the way they are having the 3 John's on Sept. 20, John Conlee, Johnny Lee, and Johnny Rodriquez. That one sounds great. They have a big outdoor stage too.
This is Tracy Byrd on the outdoor stage at Hog Creek
We decided we'd go a little early and eat supper, and we're sitting there and an cute "downright country" older couple sits behind us, the girl comes around collecting money for the cover and the old guy says, " sure, I'm stayin for the band girl, that's what I come for." Well, I looked around and the whispered to KB, Yea, I bet they can cut-a-rug too!!!! Sure enough the first song they played they headed to the dance floor and we're not to be outdone, we head out too. Yee-haw, we dance the first three and after the third dance we've got to take a breather. Next song started and we look back and nodded to our old dancing couple not to be the only dancers on the floor and they followed right along. After that dance, they old guy stopped at our table and said, "Not gonna let you young un's outdo us!!"" Ha, Ha, they were in much better shape than we were.
Well, needless to say we had a great time last night. And I'm ready for next Saturday Night at GATORS!!! Come Join Us, YEEHAW
Now this is what I call a real cowboy. Doesn't he look like the real thing in these big jeans and no shirt. Give him just a few more months and he'll be riding Candy Man all over the place. Don't know if his momma or grandma are ready for that.
That's all there is everywhere I turn!!!!!! I keep running into these parents in the store who look at their children running wild and say " I can't wait for school to start, only 1 more week." I just reply, "Oh, me neither, I'm a teacher." HAHA I really can wait, but in a way I am getting ready for the big day. I don't know if it is really because I have no choice, or I am ready to see my new little group of rug rats and to get started on all the wonderful things that we will learn together this year. I have many wonderful ideas and I am always excited to start the new year with a fresh bunch of elementary minds. I made it to school for one whole day this past week and I accomplished most of what I went there for. I set up all of the desks and put my bulletin board up in the hall and got my "mind" and desk ready. I still have a lot of things to do next week and all the while that I am in those STUPID inservice meetings, I will be thinking of everything I could be doing in my classroom!! Anyway, ready or not, HERE I COME!!!
Now to add a sad note. Walking down the school supply aisle at the local Wally World, that I hate, I'm having very mixed emotions. No one at my house will be needing any of this junk for public school anymore, man is that a relief, or is it?, my little Holly bug will just be going back to college and learning all the neat tricks to cosmetology, so that she can go out and make all of us beautiful!!! I'm just hoping she does not chop her hair off again at the beginning of class. Just kidding , isn't she beautiful!!
So back to those feelings, you know, the sad ones when your youngest child is getting ready to leave the nest and the extremely happy ones, those of great accomplishment when your youngest child graduates from high school. OMG, these are really weird feelings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Life is so amazing.
I have already posted the pictures of my greatest garage sale find this year, it is down on the post below that says almost finished. I purchased this chair for $2.00 and had all of this fabric at home already, so I was so excited to be able to do this.
This is a before pic and an after pic with the goat hide on back and pink cowgirl fabric on the seat and fringe on the bottom.
My daughters always have something to share with me and I truly enjoy every minute of our conversations. They are truly the greatest blessings in my life. The oldest shared this video with me a while back, I think she has it on her Myspace. The youngest said she was going to make homemade ice cream this weekend and now I am wanting to make and eat homemade ice cream. This Kenny Chesney videois so sweet and when she told me about, I just wanted to see if I could share it with all of you.
