Pretty good weekend. Friday I stayed off my leg and it's feeling better, thanks. Saturday I cleaned my house after taking Jack up to the reservoir with my friend Sharon and her dog, Max. Max acts like she's a victim of Jack's rough play but then she went by him and nipped at his collar, so I feel she's an instigator as well.
We had some fine folks over for a turkey dinner Sat. night and I shot no photos, but I will tell you we had a good time. We even danced bluegrass style.
Sunday morning I took Jack over to the dog park. Just as we were leaving he wrestled a Great Dane for about 15 minutes straight in the dirt. So on the way home I took him to Wag n' Wash. He didn't like it and jumped out of the tub all wet and ran about the place. Fun times. We got him back in and tethered in in the tub.
I shot this phone photo and I am pretty sure the photo proves he was spawned from the devil himself with those eyes. At least when he's getting a bath.
Anyway some of the some folks from the night before showed for the Bronco game and Greg picked his giant pumpkin.
It weighed in at 141 lbs. Forty pound more than last year's. Good job.
After it was apparent that the Broncos were having their asses handed to them by the Baltimore Ravens, I went in and took a nap to prepare for the Melanie concert that Denise called my attention to. Folks, it was a great show. There were maybe 50 people there, what a shame.
Her son Beau warmed up for her. He is a guitar master and good-looking too. He must have been classically trained. He is currently touring with her.
Then her daughter Leighla came out and played. She was beautiful and talented and reminded me of a young Patricia Wettig in looks and Sheryl Crow in voice. She is a singer-song writer in Nashville.
Then after a travel delay, Melanie came out.
What a wonderful music family. The father/husband has been her manager/producer for over 40 years. They way those kids looked up to their mom with respect and laughed along with her, wow. Here's a shitty video (on account I only had my phone camera/video, shame on me), of her hit "Brand New Key"
She was witty and told great stories, some of them a little too long winded. She made it clear that although she's grateful for her popularity from her past hits, she really thinks her new music is valuable too. It was a great show on 10-10-10. Wish more people would have shown to support good music. The lady still has pipes and a good musician too. She is 62. I was inspired, thanks Denise, and Melanie.
