Coming This Week: September 2 – 8

We will be driving most of this week but don’t feel bad for me, there are a bunch of stops along the way to see family and….. our boat. Leaving Denver we will hit Omaha, Dubuque, Dayton and Detroit. The week after will be in Dayton and Fort Wayne.

Song of the Week: Bill Withers with Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone; I am also a blues fan and this song is a link for me between the rougher blues of popular bands today and the greats like Muddy Water.

Quote of the Week: “This cheesecake is so good I’m going to save the fork”

Notes from last Week: Went back out to the mountains to see some friends, I should be paying rent at this point. Can’t recall the last time I sat around a fire drinking beer. It was heaven.

This is Charlie, he would sneak over and steal empty beers bottles while we were hanging out by a bonfire.

I have updated my calendar, at this point it is mostly just regions but the Virginia crowd will probably catch us. I am sad to say that Texas is off the list this year. I did hear rumors that next year includes Northern and Southern California plus VEGAS baby!!!! I have never been to Las Vegas.


Coming This Week: March 4 – 10

We have just arrived in the Twin Cities and are leaving already, too soon if you ask me. Making our way to Tomah, WI tonight and Appleton, WI later this week. It also looks like we will now be heading for Jackson,MS instead of Texas but that is completely in the air now.

As you can imagine we head home for our Holiday break this week. It looks like we’ll be in East Dubuque for a week starting on Friday. However before we head out there is one final show to finish out 2011. This will be the first time that we work on the American Legacy tour.  And we are Pug-sitting!!!!  Oh yeah a week with Chancho the wonder pup.

Coming This Week: November 20 – 26

Well with this being a holiday week we will be making some miles. The plan is to leave from work and head to my hometown then swing up by Josh’s for the weekend. We have made this trip before but it’s always a bit of a haul. So very much worth it.

Post of the Week: Similar to last week I am featuring another Scottie Blog, this one is about Douglas a funny little guy from Florida. Pop over to The Daily Diary of Douglas and give it a look.

Coming This Week: October 9 – 15

After wrapping up a visit with our relatives in Dekalb, IL we head back to Dubuque.  This should include a quick trip over to Galena with my Mother in Law, Karlyn.  Then…… wait for it…… we are coming up to the Twin Cities to complete the sale of our townhouse.  I haven’t talked much about it because I just didn’t want anything to go wrong.  But the day has come.

Post of the Week: A huge congrats to our buddies and shipmates over at Adventures From the Road for being featured on WordPress Freshly Pressed this week!!!
