Catching up on the small stuff
Today is just a random, catch up on what’s been going on type of a post.
I am loving the fall. Every chance I get I am out with the dogs, or the hubby, enjoying it, soaking up every last molecule of it. The dogs are loving it too. I know many of you are enjoying a long weekend, a last good bye to summer.
Friday night was the last free concert of the summer in Jackson. THAT, makes me very sad. We have seen some great musicians this year. Friday night was Lucas Nelson, and he was amazing. If you get the chance to see him in concert…GO. He is doing several shows in the west this fall.
The other day we drove about 50 miles south of Jackson to Star Valley. We are trying to find some property that we can relocate Al’s shop to. We don’t like being in Utah, we much prefer being here. (Free concerts would be just one reason.) Plus, we could get stuff done between our shows in this area if we had a place to work.
We went to look at some properties that Al had found, but we never made it that far. We stumbled onto the PERFECT place instead. 2 acres of aspens, lots of wide open space and great views. There is only 1 other house close by, and we met the people who live there. They are artists too, love the area, and were incredibly nice and great to talk to. We have something in the works to get the place in Utah sold, then we can take that money and build a small garage/shop and an RV pad. Then we would build a house while we live in the RV over the next couple of years. It would be a summer place that we could travel from to do shows in Wyoming, Idaho, or Montana. Then head south for the winter. Please send positive real estate vibes out west.
And another tid-bit of randomness, that is kinda cool actually.
I entered a photography contest that was sponsored by Photographers Forum. They were giving away some great prizes, so I thought, what the hell?! One of the shots I entered was plucked from the over 10,000 entries and was one of the finalists. 16% of all entries made it into the finalist category. From that pool of photos they choose the top winners. Sadly, I was not a top winner. But all the finalist photos will be in their book, Best of photography 2015. When I read how many photos they received, I felt better about being in that top 16%.
This is the photo.
Have a fabulous Monday everyone. And if you’re traveling today, Be Safe!!
