Going Home

Well, we are gearing up to start saying goodbyes and pack.  Don't forget to keep an eye on our schedule as we are starting to book shows for when we return to the lower 48's!  Start spreading the word that we are coming home, and that we are now booking for the fall/winter of 2011.  :)  We can't wait to see everyone again.

Ninilchik State Fair

Vicka and I will be headed to Ninilchik, AK this weekend for the Kenai Peninsula State Fair.  Tomorrow we will be competing in Alaska's Got Talent and on Sunday we will be performing.  We hope to see many of you there.  Come out with the family and enjoy a weekend of fun, food, and fair time. :)

Please pray for safety as we travel to the fair and back and for good weather.  Our last month in Alaska is winding down very fast, and although we are excited about a busy month, please pray physically that we hold up. :)  Thanks and have a great week!


Hello Again!

Well sorry for the lack of updates lately.  Between family coming to visit us, performing, and working we have been a bit overwhelmed! :)

We would also like to continue to ask for prayers for the victims from the Indiana State Fair grandstand stage collapse   Both of us were personally affected by this disaster and it has not been easy being so far away from home and watching our fellow Hoosiers struggle.  We know God's grace is sufficient to comfort us as well as the families of the victims.

The month of August is/has been very busy!  Stay tune to see what we have coming up!

Clamming in Alaska

Yesterday Diamonds in the Rough went clamming!  It was cold and wet, but hey, what's not to like about playing in the mud?  Apparently there's an art to chasing clams down. 
Step 1.) Dig fast.
Step 2.) Throw yourself in the wet sand and start digging madly until you feel a clam shell. 
Step 3.) Pull it up and throw it on the sand beside you in one smooth, suave motion so that everyone knows you caught one.  OK, the last part not so much. :)

All in all, we had an awesome time.  Afterwards, I learned how to clean clams.  And after cleaning about a hundred and fifty clams, I will never forget how it's done.  Never. :)
