Do da doot do

I'm singing in the rain. Or mumbling incoherently, in sandals, when she was told to wear "good shoes." But hey that's Gracie!

Compost This!

Diana and I spent a lot of Saturday making compost bins for the leaves and yard clippings from our yard. I ended up making 3 of them out of the siding from the old playhouse. The playhouse just keeps on giving. So far we made the ramp for the front porch, and now these. They are 32" diameter by 40, 40, and 64 respectively for a total of 67 cubic feet of mulch. I made PVC pipes with holes drilled in them to allow air in. I just need to drill holes in the sides to pop them in, and a door on the bottom to pull out the oldest stuff first. Hopefully there will be a lot ready by next spring when it is time to plant the garden. We actually still have more mulch on our driveway, but are getting to the point of wondering how much compost we really need.

Collin Raye in Concert

Tonight I took Diana to the Collin Raye Concert at the Desert Star Theater as a late 10th Anniversary gift. It was very nice, they served a full buffet-style dinner, and he sang for about an hour and 45 minutes. I was impressed by how down to earth he seemed, and I can honestly say, it was THE BEST concert I have ever been to. That being said, its best to note that it is also the ONLY concert I have ever been to, but nevertheless, was quite entertaining.

He sang with his daughter (who was in the video of "I think about you" when she was 8)
Afterward, Diana and I took a short trip to Arches National Park -- er, stood in front of a mural.

New Family Pictures!

Darrin and Kelly came down to our house on Saturday and we went over to the park to take some family pictures. I made some adjustments in Photoshop to tweak the color (or lack thereof) crop the pictures and fix any slight imperfections, but Darrin did and awesome job.
