New Hunt and Stuff

There is always a new Scavenger Hunt, right?  We just keep on going...


Number 1, flower and Number 2 leaf, sketched  in the big book with the Pilot fountain pen and added colored pencil.

The Christmas cactus has lost a couple of blooms with one fading, luckily it was still going for this Hunt, next week it will be gone.

Oh and a Hunt that just ended:

For Scavenger Hunt 525 - Number 16, pipes under the sink
Number 17, book - wedding books for Jennie and Brandon and also for Christy and Nick.

I had some good stories in mind for my blog but did not jot down notes.  Silly, as Jennie told me about a great app, Notability,  for the iPad where you can type, draw with the pencil and write all interchangeable and add photos and write on the photos, etc.  Make bullet lists and so much more.  I have it but haven't used it yet.  Maybe this year.

We went to music on Saturday evening.  We really went to Austin to order Gene's new trike.  It is a famdancy one which should improve his ride and give him something to look forward to and be comfortable.  It is called a Catrike in the Dumont model.

We planned to go see Byrd and Street, but Mr. Byrd was ill so Greg Whitfield and Mark Dotson sat in for them.  It was a great show.  We took Elaine Filion with us.  She is an expert instrument fixer upper, repairman.  She knows most of the musicians we see.   Elaine has repaired many of their guitars, banjos and for us a charango from Bolivia.  It was a great time at the New World Deli.  Good food, too.

I just had to buy a cd from Greg.  This is my new theme song for the procrastinator that I am.  Near the start of the song  ".....I haven't done a thing all day, but I won't let that bother me, I wont be losing any sleep 'cause somebody's doing something somewhere......"  It also says something about just watching TV, napping and eating.   Perfect for me....  Have a listen and go see a show with Greg when you can.

Greg is also a teacher and has written Alphabet songs for kids, one for each letter of the alphabet.  Fun.  He will have some animated versions out before too long, I'll let you know.  I put a snippet on Instagram, but lots of talking.  Grrrrr.  https://www.instagram.com/p/BdoYpJJB4PU/?taken-by=jocastart1
