The Latest Pictures (from Target)

I have to say that I'm pretty happy with our latest photo shoot, from Target. Their e-mail option was much faster than Penneys and the electronic images are huge by comparison. The service was top notch too. I haven't picked up my prints yet, but I'm sure they'll be great. Write me if you want the link to the full set. >^.^<


Don't you just LOVE this picture? I can't believe I know these guys - total stars!!

Don't forget to watch The Next Great American Band - this Friday and every Friday!!!

My Girlfriend is ON TV!!

I need to tell the world one of my dearest friends is on TV and needs your vote. If you knew me for any length of time, you would have heard me talk about Little Lisa - she taught me how to play bass, encouraged me to sing when I stopped playing bass, stood up in my wedding, played at my graduation party...

Now she plays bass for Dot Dot Dot, the hardest working band in Chicago and they're on TV!!! Here's some info:

Friday October 19 a new show from the producers of American Idol called The Next Great American Band aired. Dot Dot Dot made it to the top 12 and will be on the show Fridays on FOX 8pm Eastern / 7pm central. There are many great bands on the show. Please tune in to Fox on Fridays and make a difference, VOTE!!! If you want tickets to the show, they are free - here is the link:
Check out these websites:
Here's a link to a review of their music:

Tune in this Friday - if you can't watch the whole show, be sure to catch the last 10 minutes for the wrap-up and the telephone numbers to vote for your favorite band. Vote with your heart (I'm sure it will be for Dot Dot Dot!!)

A Glimpse into My Unpublishables

Here's a small slice of my Summer writing, in case you were wondering what we've been doing - five minutes at a time and spelling shortcuts!

7/18/17 - Guess who said this: Oh Man! I'm peeing on the rug!

Wednesday, August 08, 2007 – 9:06 a.m.
Wolf woke up at 7:15 today, a full hour earlier than usual. I should have known, since he was talking about it last night at bedtime – he said he’d sleep in the car on the way to the museum. It’s like he willed himself awake and unfortunately I absentmindedly rewarded it with Power Rangers cuz I wanted to take a shower. He has just never liked to sleep.
Mattie is some kind of savant crack-up. She asks these extremely valid questions (told check your clothes for stains and if you don’t find any put them here on the table to wear again: ‘where do I put them if they have a stain?’). Today she made a droid out of mega-blocks and he happens to make coffee because she loves it. And another creation is his helper who adds the peanut butter! Ha! Hmmmmmmm…..

8/14/07 - On the way home from Petland (just browsing) I asked what their favorite pets were. Mattie said the fish (would you believe they sell Pufferfish for $599.99?) and Wolf said the blue bird in the front of the store (parakeet). Mattie then changed her answer to bird + said she'd name it Coke. Isn't Barbie's bird named that? 'No! It's Coco!' said Wolf. Wolf then said he was naming his bird Diet Coke!

Thursday, August 16, 2007 – 10:25 a.m. – Today’s game is called ‘Ninja Pantry’ created from their recent love of Pucca and spurred on no doubt by my request that they put the groceries in the pantry. Wolf emphatically ordered, “Buy something else Ninjas! Don’t you know how expensive Waffle Mix is?” And immediately afterward they all go upstairs to make waffles!
