I woke up early today, about 4:30 a.m. Actually, I didn't wake up, the earthquake woke me. I didn't know it was an earthquake, but something odd made me wake up. Since I was up I made some coffee and turned on the early a.m. news and there it was...we'd had an earthquake. Its epicenter was in Illinois and we felt it here in Kansas City. FREAKY! We forget about that New Madrid fault that is here in the midwest. Sneaky little fault it is!!!! I'm feeling a bit Californian today...maybe a bit of sunscreen and some Beach Boys music to sew by!
On the rocking and rolling front...my oldest son's band headlined for the very first time. It's been a couple of weeks ago now. They've been together for a while and playing lots of shows, but locally it's a big deal to be the headliner. Status, and more importantly they get most of the cash! They played at Main Street Cafe, which is a really nice venue here in town.
They've played some not so nice places. I don't mean sleezy or anything, just places without good sound equipment, or much of a crowd. They had a great show with a packed house. Good for them! Just what they need, a plug on a quilting blog!
My guy is the drummer. Those hands are so quick you can't get anything but a blurry picture. I'm such a groupie! He's having a great time and making music. Doesn't get much better than that!
Ok, my pay it forward blog friends. I've been saying for days that the gifts were coming. Well, now it's really true. They're in their mailing cartons and off to the post office in the morning. Thanks so much for participating with me. It was such fun and working on these helped me focus on others instead of myself and our current situation. That has been such a good thing. I would urge other bloggers who come upon that pay it forward invitation to join in. Have a great weekend everyone!
