bluegrass in goderich / i rock

so pooch german girl calls me up one night and asks if im going to the bluegrass show in town.  i didnt even know it was happening so i say c.o.o.l  lets do it

heres a link to their website

i practically have this kind of music in my blood.    i played mandolin as a kid (and i plan to pick it up again), and both my parents played in a band.  my mom played the stand up base and my dad still plays the 5- string banjo.

these guys, altho they looked serious were alot of fun and really rocked the place.

and this is the place they rocked in

i posted about this place before.  its called the livery and is 2 minutes from where i live

take a listen.  this footage is not from the show i saw but its a good one

the rest of the post today is showing part of the collection of beautiful rocks that i share my space with
this one looks like a footprint

these are all gathered from the beach where i live  
i love them

happy mothers day to all the moms out there, and very especially to my momma, janet
i love you a bushel and a peck
all for now

  1. WONDERFUL STONES!!! You rock! My collection of rocks is small but worthy. Stones stand for so many wonderful things: solidity, character, eternal yet slightly changing, beauty, the history of our earth's geology.

  2. I also have a few small rocks that I collect from everywhere, maybe we all gather them.
    You have a lovely ones and big too.
    Strangely I like the stones for their smoothness and the fit they have in my hand. But I do like your footprint, its a beauty.
    Have a great day too.

  3. Beautiful. Yo have fabulous collection of rocks.

  4. OMG - another rock collector!

    I even have my daughters collections of interesting rocks sat here waiting for her to come and make a sculpture out of them - one day I will hire a trailor and take all my rocks back to the river / seaside! (alond with buckets filled with shells!)


  5. Souns like a good time was had by all. There's nothing like live music.
    Have a great Sunday. XXXX

  6. Laura -- I just wrote you a comment on that box of stuff you were sorting through a couple of weeks ago ("eclectic" could take on a new meaning thanks to those contents!), but then I wasn't sure if you'd see a comment on an older post so I thought I'd say hi this way. (And also comment on how cool that "Livery" building looks.)
    Hope you're having a nice weekend; take care!

  7. Hi Laura
    Love the 'foot' rock!!! and sounds like you had another wonderful outing... Happy Mothers Day too.. do you celebrate today in Canada??

  8. I cool are you to know how to play the mandolin. There is obviously music in your DNA.

  9. Rocks and rockin' - you live well! I'm glad pooch german girl is living it up - sometimes I worry that pooch special k gets to go on all the trips.

  10. Your rock collection is just lovely!

  11. Blue grass is cool and rocks are even cooler! I brought some back from England :o)

  12. Sounds great...and so close to you too!!!
    Mr Armchair would love those rocks...he nearly became a geologist!!!
    Happy Mothers Day to you too,,,hope it was a great one♥x

  13. That's a great collection of beautiful rocks. Wonderful textures!
    Glad you enjoyed the show.

    By the way, I had no idea you have your own house here and, in fact, not far from mine! :-)))

  14. A mi tambien me gustan mucho los minerales sobre todo cuando era mas joven, tengo muchas, amatistas, piritas, calcitas, cuarzo todas cogidas por mi en las montañas de Catalonia.
    Un beso
