Playing in the Rain

We were playing a show at the Diamond M potluck and I looked over at Nat during one of our songs and we had to laugh.  My fingers were so numb that I could barely feel which chords I was playing.  My fingers are still so cold I can barely type.  But all in all, it was a good show.


So I am posting this at 1:30am ( my time)  just to let ya'll know we HAVE NOT forgotten about you!  We are very very busy here on the ranch and between practice, work, and performing, it is sometimes hard to find time to sit down to the computer! :)  Hopefully you have been able to access our facebook page.  and keep up with us there.  It is easier and faster to upload photos and such to that page than to here so when I am in a hurry I am most likely to upload to that page first. 

We have about two months left here, and we are both sad when we think about leaving.  Everyone here has truly become family.  I will miss snuggling with Toad and Sonora who have christened  us their "summer sisters",  making cinnamon rolls with Josiah every Friday night, and joking with Blair about everything under the sun.   Grammy and Grandpa will be very don't realize how close you are to someone until you think about not having them anymore.  Grammy's breakfasts will be missed and Grandpa's salmon and hugs will be missed too.

Ok well enough sappy sad stuff for now.  I need to hit the hay! :)  Tomorrow we will be riding horses at the head of Debbie Brown's parade entry.  Debbie is running for borough mayor here on the Kenai Peninsula and we are proud to be able to support her.  We are also making another float for Diamond M Ranch to enter tomorrow so we have to get up early to finish those details.  Well,  I will check back in soon!!

Summer Sun

     I'm TAAAAAN!!!  Both Nat and I got so sunburned on July 4th.  I shoulda thought of sunscreen, but I guess I was just in too much of a rush that morning to put it on.  Even without it, if we'd been in the Indiana sun all day long, we'd both be lobsters.  The Alaska sun is definitely different.  So if you're a red head or a blondie, come here. :)
    We played on the float in the Kenai July 4th parade.  It was a new experience for me.  It was really hot, the parade route was long, and my arms were tired before we reached the end.  But I had a ton of fun!  The crowd was really upbeat and energized. The bows kept falling off the sides of the float so one of the kids riding it had to jump off, run alongside, and tape them back on.  I was laughing at him so much that I kept messing up.
    Come to find out, the floats were being judged and we won first prize!! :) Happy Birthday America!! :D

Cover of the HC Magazine

Diamonds in the Rough graced the cover of the HC Magazine back in Indiana.  Here is a link to the article.  If you have a way of getting a hard copy of the magazine, though , you should because they did an awesome job with the pictures and the cover.


Here is the link to a recent interview DITR underwent.  Hope you enjoy!
