Finally, in person, I met my friend Jodi last night. It was an exciting moment. Boy did we have some exciting things to talk about!!!! I wish all of you blogging lady-friends could have been there ;-)
We had a benefit at our house with Glen Phillips from Toad the Wet Sprocket. The money was raised to support Healing Haiti. Awesome organization and very good friends of Haiti orphans. One more reason to love them. We raised $19,000+ just for last night and are so pleased. Ricky was a riot with Glen. He LOVES to sing Glen's songs (Walk on the Ocean, All I Want and Somethings Always Wrong) ...okay, he signs the last word of every sentence and dances around like a nut!!! We do this every evening when we are washing dishes and cleaning the kitchen. Ricky plays his guitar and sings into anything resembling a mic. Last night, he sat in his private lounge chair and watched the concert....as timid as could be. When Glen came in we brought him into the activity room and showed him Ricky's dancing. So there was Glen watching Ricky sing Glen's songs....funny moment. When Glen would join in the singing live Ricky would drop to the ground in either a moment of amazement or utter humility....I don't know!
THEN....today we heard Five for Fighting's John Ondrasik in person in Minneapolis. We are trying to get him for next year!
This is for all my blogging friends...I had to laugh..."have you read my blog today...300 million little USA's"
