Still Alive and Kickin'

Hey ya'll. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Thanks to those who've noticed and asked if I was ok. I'm fine. Just been soooo busy with the DJ thang. Praise God. We've got a big wedding party for a couple who actually got married in California a few weeks ago and wants a "home town" celebration for those who didn't make the wedding. I've been a busy bee loading playlists on the laptop and Jackie's been upgrading the mixer and speakers. And of course, there's Fay.....with all the lightning and rain she's been dumping on us. But, we really can use the rain. We lost power yesterday for a few hours, which threw us into a tailspin with all we're trying to get accomplished before this weekend.

The benefit Jackie and I played last Saturday went well. I really enjoyed myself and the other musicians. It had been a long time since I played my keyboard, but the people there really made me feel special. Keep in mind, I'm NOT an accomplished musician like most of the others who were playing at this event, but they're all a great bunch of guys, and playing with them would make ANYBODY sound good.

My poor Ebay and Etsy have kinda taken a back seat to the DJing right now. But that's ok. I'm still having sales and it keeps me from getting bored with all that's going on. Maybe after Saturday, I can get back to my crafts. I'm excited about the aproaching Fall and Halloween season and feel the need to be "creative".

Jackie's band, Ambush, has been asked to play the Finally Friday concert on October 31. This is a great event that the Fine Arts Center sponsors on the last Friday of the month from March thru October with local bands. It's real neat....a big outdoor event where the kids can come and you bring chairs and blankets and listen to great music. It's really an honor to play these things. This one's gonna be a big Halloween party with costumes and all. Hope Momma's gonna get to come down and finally hear Jackie play. She loves music.....and has even been known to "cut a rug" a time or two ;)

Oh well, hope to have some pics of the benefit soon. And maybe, by then, I'll have some of the wedding party too. I posted some new pics on the DJ Myspace of a Hannah Montana party we did for Little Bree back in April. You can check 'em out by clicking on the icon below..

Love all ya'll,

Hi Vic!
Glad you're back. I need to look at your crafts-so this will be short. Sounds like you are super busy.
I'll be back!
Love, Debra
