Worked the first half of the day, then kids and grandkids came out for the afternoon.  Didn't know it, but one of the granddaughters is studying to be a pediatric nurse in the Air Force.  Go figure.  From all the news, just doesn't seem like a good time to jump into the military...

It did, Smurf.  Met some new neighbors, got to see a couple we hadn't seen for a while, and just had a good chat.  And everybody enjoyed the food.  We enjoyed it.  But now tomorrow and Monday will be cleaning up and moving a ton of stuff again...

I'm glad to hear that so many did show up with the weather being so sucky, and glad everyone had a good time! ;D

That included you folks also, right?! 8)

Well, after all that work it's over.  Did rain all day, so it was an inside affair.  And of course the rain kept a few from coming, ended up with 36.  All had a great time chatting and eating, it was worth the work.  And I have leftovers.  Now, song stuff...

Well, everything is ready to go, whether it's inside or out.  Tons of prep work, lots of food ready to cook, and today the wife baked 4 cakes and 50 cupcakes for dessert.  We have food for 50, but with the rain I don't expect more than 30 or so.  In any case, won't be back here till tomorrow night...

Some probably won't come, and the rest will all have to fit in the house somehow.

Why me Lord?
What have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the days that I've had

Ah well...  :P

Got the 2 picnic tables hauled in and set up today, 30 lawn chairs ready to go, tables to cook outside, lots of other crap, and just saw that now they're calling for rain tomorrow...  :o >:( ???

JULY CHALLENGE - TRAIN SONG
« on: July 04, 2017, 05:09:21 PM »
Okay folks, I know everyone is busy with their Battle of the Bands, so this is a nice simple one to get you toa different place (see what I did there?).

This months challenge is to write and record a Train Song ie a song about a train, or a railway line or a rail journey.

Thats it!  No time limits, no time signatures (though train songs don't lend themselves to weird jazz time sigs unless you know different)

Closing date midnight wherever you are 30 July 2017.

I love train songs...

I can tell, nice one Cotton.  Enjoyed that.   :)

I adjusted it for you so it would show.  Basically, you just select the link, then click on the red SoundCloud button on the left end of the edit menu...
