I figured out the backgrounds

So, I figured out the backgrounds. Not sure that I am happy with this one, or any of the others that I tried, but at least I figured it out. :)

Wayne and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary last week! We tried out a new Mexican restaurant, downtown, which was very good! I actually had a margarita, which I rarely do...but it was also very tasty. They even offer to make them on-the-rocks, which is nice!

It's hard to believe we've been married for 20 years. We are so very lucky to have found each other!! We are both so grateful for our life together. I hope all of our children find what we've found.

We also can't believe that our oldest is about to graduate from high-school! Geez... seems it was just yesterday that she was running around here, naked, and when I'd tell her she needed to get dressed, she'd either say, "But, I'm not cold", or, "Why? Are we having company?" We are so, so proud of the young woman she has become. So responsible and hard-working. She has completed four years of high-school, basically, in 2.5 years! We need to start planning a graduation party for her.... she deserves it!! June 5th is the big day!! :)

We're growing tired of the cool rain around here. We had weather in the 80's and that's always dangerous. Makes one think that things are going to turn around, weatherwise! Well, it is turning, but it can seem so slow....then, suddenly, it'll be 90! I think it just might be sunny tomorrow....I was actually hoping that tomorrow would be the day it rained!! We are playing at the Art Harvest Tour Benefit, at McMenamin's, in McMinnville, and Colin's wife can only come down if it rains and she isn't able to do the Alberta Street Fair in the evening. I was hoping she could be here....but, I guess that's not really in my hands. As Doris Day used to sing, "....whatever will be, will be...."

So, we've gotten in extra practices the last week and I think it'll go well tomorrow night!! We're excited. It runs from 5 to 10:00 with us playing from 8:00 to 9:00. We hear that it's a very well-attended benefit so I'm sure it's going to be crowded. McMenamin's is donating the room and half of all the dinner/drinks tickets.....that's pretty generous!! Very cool. I hope to see lots of my local friends there!

OK... need to get ready for Game Day at Lisa's.
Enjoy your day!

Blog backgrounds??

Hi, everyone!!

So sorry I've been absent! Spring has sprung here and there have been so many things that I've wanted to take pictures of to post on here, but my camera is still not working. :( All our daffodils are just about done for the year... the tulips are in their glory, though! Mountain/Wood Hiacynths are going crazy. It was 80 degrees yesterday!! (See, I told you, Jana!!) It was so wonderful..... I barbequed burgers and we had a fire in the backyard and made S'mores, after dinner. I wish I could post the sweetness that you can smell in the air right now! Ah, summer must be coming!

I tried to change my blog background a couple of months ago, but it wouldn't work, for some reason. Now, I see that thecutestblogontheblock is totally different.... so, I imagine they were in the middle of switching things up when I was trying to use one of their backgrounds. I just spent an hour trying to find some nice backgrounds... but had no luck. Can anyone recommend a good site for free blog backgrounds? I have lots of scrapbook paper.... I'm thinking that when I have my camera fixed, I could probably make my own. Right? Would that work?

For all you locals, the band I play in is playing at the Open-Mic at 3rd Street Pizza tonight. Not exactly sure when we'll play, but it runs from 7:00 to 10:00.

OK, I need to get out in the yard before it gets too warm!
Enjoy the day, wherever you are!
