Guitars and keyboards

Baby is playing guitar with Daddy right now. We're thinking we might have a little musician on our hands! Both of us are musicians, and his birthparents are, too. It's neat to see this love of music coming out in this boy. When we finish lunch or dinner and walk by the piano, Baby cranes his neck and reaches out to the instrument to play. He loves the drums and tambourine, too.

The other thing this kiddo is interested in right now is the computer. His dad and his birthdad are both computer nuts, too. I'm currently typing with one shift key, because I let Baby play with it and he ripped the other one off. One time he even started a new browser window. He's so cool!

Saturday laughs

Soul Train, baby! It is hilarious - the outfits, the music, the hair, the dancing - hilarious. It's funny to me because although I was too young to go out dancing in the 1970s, I was certainly old enough to go roller skating and remember dressing in a leotard under tight jeans with one side of my hair pulled back.

There's this one lady who I can only assume tried to dress like Judy Jetson in a red leotard with a space-age collar over black tights, with a sparkly headband and Crystal Gayle hair down past her buttocks. She keeps moving in and out of view, sidling across the stage waving her arms in a very disco-esque movement. Of course there are also the jumpsuits, tubetops, and matching his and hers outfits.

For a good laugh check out an old Soul Train one Saturday afternoon. This is what happens when you and your husband are too cheap to pay for cable TV past the basic package.

Why am I still up? I'm tired. We started watching "Lost" last week on DVD and it makes me feel very thirsty. I'm tired and thirsty. That's my July 12th update.

Happy Anniversary tomorrow, D & F!
