SKATYRS...Still Kids After All These Years. That's the name of the band I'm in. That's right, I'm in a band. Some of you know that, but if you're a first time viewer to this blog, it's the first I mentioned it. We're a classic rock and roll band, and the reason I'm writing this, is to introduce a new member. My brother Brian was with us for over three years, but he moved on this past fall. So, our new guy is Joe McGown. He's a great guitar player, and a very accomplished vocalist. He also plays keyboards, and he's one of these guys that can harmonize to anything. For those of you that follow us, I know you will be impressed. I know I am, and I can hardly wait for you to hear us with him in the band. We're in the process of learning new music and getting ready for the up coming summer. We've got some jobs lined up, so if you want to see where we're going to be, go to our web site at

Would You Like Ice With That?

We had a pretty rare event in our area today...and ice storm. We usually don't get ice storms, but today was an exception. Our little dog Lexie can hardly stand up in the driveway. Our sidewalk is covered in about a half inch of ice, and being the clutz I am, I can hardly stand up on it. It's a lot warmer right now though, so I think this is about over. No power outages that I know of, but I've heard a couple of ambulances go by. I hope no one was seriously hurt.

We took in a few of the events for Winterfest over the weekend. I'm not sure who won, but the soup at Moonlite Bay was great. The best I tasted anyway!
