Odds and ends.

Some good, some bad, all life.

  • The Louisville trip and Ben Folds concert with the Louisville symphony were terrific.

  • Louisville smells like flowers and bacon.

  • Our Great North American Road Trip was a blast. We visited Detroit, Chicago and Green Bay 

  • The people of Battle Creek, Michigan are some of the nicest people we've ever encountered.

  • The people of Green Bay, Wisconsin are, for the most part, full of themselves.

  • I had a bit of a scare when we went to the Art Institute of Chicago and found the Impressionist exhibit was closed for renovations. Thankfully, the one painting I wanted so desperately to see was still on display:

    A Sunday Afternoon on a Saturday morning. 

  • M. Ward is one of the greatest musicians I've ever seen perform live. The things he can do with a guitar will make your skin tingle.

  • This weekend we embark on the final of our road trips for the forseeable future, taking in the lovely cities of St. Louis and Minneapolis. 

  • On Sunday, I get to see David Byrne which makes me very happy.

  • Rags, our beloved cat, passed away on October 9th, 2008. Everyone who encountered him agreed that he was the most magnificent creature to ever walk the earth. I can't even describe how losing him makes me feel. It's like a giant hole has been left in the world.

  1. I really like that painting too!! I am glad you got to see it. When Brian and I are in NY in a couple of weeks we hope to be able to hit up at least one museum.
