I live with a sommelier of music. I hear it all; from the “Dead Kennedy’s to Lana Del Ray. I have always loved music but never immersed myself into it. Kip has… As we sit down at our candlelit dinner with a turnstile full of just purchased CD’s from spun.com. I have no idea as to what we are going to experience. But: as we go through piles of CD’s that the majority we will never hear again; we/he find “gems”. Every so often he comes to me with something that he knows I will want to absorb; and I do mean want to absorb; playing over and over again. It drives him to distraction. He introduced to me a CD that I want to pass forward. it strikes a chord with both of us. We are not necessarily lyrically directed. This woman just has an unbelievable beautiful delivery… Their piece: “Strong” is a must listen.
So tonight as I sit here writing this, I hear the turnstile being filled with our selection for this evening’s dinner. Here we go… together; out there. Today he replaced four sets of speakers throughout the house that have been blown. We “really” do enjoy our music.
The “Cat Cave”… I adopted Button’s a week ago. A gift to Mom/Dad after the loss of their “Daisy”.
Going to pick her up momentarily from the Vet for the 4 hour drive to Leelanau to celebrate Dad’s 89th birthday. Feeling a little nervous…
I hope that she is not into singing soprano. I have the ear plugs just in case. With her in the back…Maddee our large dog in the middle…this all seems just a little animal excessive. Thank goodness that “Miss Sophie” -our new puppy has not arrived yet. That saga begins next week.
