Go go go Joseph!

Last night was the grand opening for "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Coat" and it went very well! I couldn't actually see the show (and my children performing) because I was busy playing drums, but I could hear the audience response and it was awesome! They loved it!

I did get some pics of the warm up and the waiting around before the show. Here's Little Buddy getting ready for his microphone check:


Here's Girly Girl waiting around for something, although I don't know what that thing is:


She was probably waiting around for her friends and it wasn't long before they arrived:


The Big Man does has some small solo parts in the show; he plays the part of the "Lively Lad" and so he ws probably working on his lines:


Finally the Theater Director got them together and started the warm up. Here's about 30 seconds of them warming up. It's really cute to listen to them.

I'd love to get pics of some of the actual live show but I can't. "You know the deal, no pictures or flash photography!"

Logan the Sky Angel

I'm still running around doing way too much right now, but I did want to pass on this video clip that I received today of a Christian radio station phone where a 13 year old called Logan called in. If you haven't heard this yet, take the time to do so. It's really amazing and inspirational!

It took a bit to load, probably because of the massive amount of hits it's getting, but wait for it.

Guess who was in the Audience..

... while I was playing "Guys and Dolls?"

Recognize her? Yep, Calista Flockhart. Yep, it made me nervous and yeah, I tried really hard to keep mistakes down to a minimum.

Next weekend is the grand opening to "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" which means I'll have rehearsal all this week after work. I'm looking forward to doing this because I'll be playing drums while all three of my kids will be in the ensemble as the students. How cool is that?!

It's CRAZY around these parts!

Just a quick note to say that I've been really busy, which is why you haven't seen me around much these last few days. I have been hired to play the musical "Guys and Dolls" this weekend and "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Coat" the next two weekends so between the practices and the performances, I haven't been able to visit all of you folks these last couple of days.

To top it off, I have a computer certification exam on the last Wednesday in July that I have to find time to study for, so I'm a bit tied up.

I hope you're all doing okay and I promise to visit and see what you're up to soon!

Important Public Service Warning!

I've been pretty busy since the 4th but I thought I'd take the time to communicate this very important public service announcement.

Never, under any circumstances, ever, EVER, EVER,...

... fart in a wet suit!

Happy 4th of July, y'all!!!

I know, I'm posting this on the 5th, but Hey; I was busy yesterday!
Actually, no, not really, I didn't have the kids this weekend so I didn't spend the 4th with them, which is just as well. It rained on us over here so it was a washout.
So what did I do? I spent the morning reading Homer's "The Odyssey." I have no idea what possessed me, but you know what? It's one heck of a good story! (I think I read a few chapters back in high school, but I didn't pay attention AT ALL and didn't remember a thing.)
Hope you all did better than me. How did you spend your 4th?
