His Playing Isn’t Rusty but His Strings Are

My husband has played the guitar since he was 13-years-old. And what amazes me, he’s self-taught, having never took a lesson. I love hearing him play, especially when he’s serenading me with some of my favorite songs. But as of late, the sounds coming from his guitar have been a wee bit discordant. And on checking out his guitar, without his knowledge, of course, I couldn’t help but notice that his strings didn’t look the best.

And I know exactly what to do. I went with him before to a local music store where he bought some new strings, some Fender Custom Light 70cl 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Strings. I have no idea what all those numbers mean but I do know when he put them on his guitar, it sounded heavenly. And my next trip will be to the music store because I’m ready to hear more of those heavenly sounds played, especially for me.

He Wants to be a Little Drummer Boy

My son just began the 7th grade and has moved up to the middle school concert band after playing one year in the intermediate school band. He plays the trumpet and loves it! But…it looks like things may be changing.

Last week we attended a festival at a local town and they had a parade. There were several high school marching bands that passed by us and my son was totally enthralled by the drum line of each band, which prompted him to say he sure would like to do that. My husband explained to him that that wouldn’t be possible until he got into high school and became a member of the marching band, which isn’t done in middle school. To which our son replied, “Then I need to start learning how to play the drums RIGHT NOW!”

Well, looks like we may be going back to the music store, turn his trumpet in and get a drum set. I wonder if that would include roadrunner bags to store his drums in? This will certainly be interesting, as well as noisy around the house when he does his practicing. Looks like I’ll need to be getting me some ear muffs.

Watch Me Style Out With My Jord Watch

I don’t consider myself fashionable or someone that is always “IN” when it comes to the latest fads or trends in the fashion world, but I do know one thing that I am certain of: I love accessories. They are always a part of my get-up and I feel incomplete without them. I have to have my earrings, rings, bracelet, necklace and watch. But although I love accessories, I am also picky when it comes to choosing them. I don’t just grab me an accessory or any jewelry just because they are the latest fad or they are the hottest. I am also particular to their design and if they would look good on me or if they suit my style.

I consider my style as simple and chic. I do love accessories, but I don’t like those chunky ones. And I don’t like overdoing them like putting a lot of bracelets on both arms. I can go with only one bracelet and sometimes two. When it comes to earrings, I prefer stud earrings more than anything.

In regard to watches, I don’t like the ones with gold plated bracelets. I have always loved the leather bracelets. And then I discovered the wood watches. Have you already seen the wide array of fabulous women’s watches by JORD? I would have never thought wood watches would look so chic and fabulous!

The one that I am wearing is just one of the many lovely watches that they have. There are different designs that you can choose from as well as different colors to suit your taste. Not only that, they also have a lot of great looking men’s watches for the man of your life. I am already thinking of getting my husband one for Christmas maybe or, better yet, our anniversary.

I just love the look and fit of my new JORD watch. It definitely looks chic on my arm. Don’t you think so too? I am such a happy camper! Who wouldn’t be? I just added a new accessory to my collection. Gotta love that!

Need a Lift?

Have you seen those motorcycle lifts on http://www.bestbuyautoequipment.com/Motorcycle-Lifts-s/292.htm ? I came across it today and I have never seen one like it before. I don’t drive a motorcycle, but I used to ride on one a lot when I was young because my dad had one and it was what he used when he drove us to school.

It has been years since then because that was way back when I was in elementary and high-school. But I surely have never thought there was such thing as motorcycle lift which I actually find cool. I bet my dad would have been delighted to have had it because he loves to tinker with his motorcycle. The lift would have helped him a lot in so many ways.

He doesn’t have a motorcycle anymore. He traded it in exchange for a car. But I do know that he would love to have a motorcycle again because like he said before, the thrill of driving a motorcycle is way different than driving a car. Well, if he decides to get one again, I will tell him about the lift. I think he would love to have one.
