When you have nine kids, most of which play a musical instrument, you can bet that there are gonna have to be repairs made on their instruments. We haven’t had too many repairs that have had to be made thankfully, because the kids are usually pretty careful with their instruments, but there have been a few costly repairs that have had to been taken care of. But luckily for my pocketbook, none of the kids were ever interested in playing the oboe–can you imagine all the classic oboe reeds at wwbw replacements I would have had to take care of?
With a budding guitar player in the family, I’m always interested in all different kinds of guitars! The fender starcaster is built as a high-quality electric guitar that has several features that separates it from other guitars, such as the higher and more hollow neck which produces a more unique sound. However, the Fender Starcaster guitars were only produced for about eight years before production ceased on these guitars. There are, however, still a few sources you can buy these unique guitars from– Such as Amazon.com, Ebay.com, and a few separate music stores that will still have a fender starcaster for sale.
As I write this, my son has hit the halfway point in Marine boot camp. Wow…what a marathon this has been…and what a marathon it promises to continue to be. He is currently working on rifle qualifications this week. This is a crucial week to his success, so we are anxiously awaiting any good news we hear.
There are lots of reasons to wear classic sony headphones around my home. I have lots of kids who enjoy many different types of music, including piano, trumpet, drums and bass guitar. Thankfully, my son who plays the bass guitar does have a set of headphones, so he can play without sharing his sounds with everyone. I wish there was some type of headphones that would work with drums!
Having never actually felt an earthquake, I have no idea how noticeable a 4.3 earthquake would be. Something tells me it was not something that went by unfelt by the recruits in San Diego, though.
Join the movement — Red Fridays to support our troops!
It’s easy to get so caught up in our own lives that we forget that we have servicemen and servicewomen out there risking their lives and placing their lives on hold so that we can continue to enjoy freedoms and liberties.
Are you thankful for these sacrifices?
If so, pull out a red shirt or scarf or hat or jacket and put it on this and every Friday.
Please take a few moments and let them know that you support them.
Not that this would work for us…but have you heard about the tiny house movement? The push to leave the excess and the abundant and trade it in for minimal living quarters? I even saw a family that made over a school bus into a house on wheels. church buses for sale anyone?
The tiny house was actually very cool and innovative. Maybe when we whittle our family size down to one or two kids, we’ll try it!
My boy is a Marine recruit now. As hard as it is for me…this comic seems to fit!
Can you believe it’s February already! I am so happy that January is over…I just cannot even tell you how much better it feels to be able to say it’s February!
Of course, in our neck of the woods, we are still in the dark days of winter. In fact as I write this, it’s a whopping zero degrees right now. Yeah…I wasn’t kidding. It’s still winter here!
It’s even too cold for one of those outdoor patio heaters. Nope — wouldn’t keep us warm in February — but it might in April or May. That would be the perfect time to snuggle outdoors on the deck or the patio with a blanket and a nice patio heater to ward off the chill.
Of course, if you’re outfitting your patio with a heater, you’re going to have to make it comfortable. I’m thinking perhaps an outdoor living room set with couch, loveseat and ottoman. Maybe some weather-resistance cushions and pillows as well as weather resistant lighting outdoors to make it comfortable.
You’ll also need a grill and some dining room furniture to make it possible to cook and eat outdoors, too. In fact, if you have a table, you could even play games or put puzzles together outdoors.
I’m going to advise you to skip any type of technology, save perhaps a sound system. That would enable you to have music outdoors, but please, please, please skip the entertainment such as television or anything else with screens. Save you time outdoors in the backyard as natural time when you can connect with your friends and family — not technology. There’s enough of that going on inside the house, right? Make the outside deck or patio a haven where the family can escape it and connect with each other.
It won’t be long now before it’s time to turn thoughts toward outdoor living once again. As for me — I’m turning thoughts to April. That is when my son will be done with his Marine basic training and will graduate. We are so proud of him and we are so looking forward to watching him graduate in San Diego!
It’s been quite a ride, 2012 has. We welcomed a new grandson back in July (Hi Carter!) and watched son #2 graduate from high school. In between, we took a trip down to Florida, weathered the great drought of 2012 and came to terms with having a future marine in the family.
What does 2013 bring? Well, we’re anticipating a new granddaughter in March and we are tentatively planning a trip out to San Diego to watch as son #2 graduates from boot camp and becomes a marine.
Other than that…who knows? I’m quite sure it will be interesting, though!
