Happy 4th of July to my American friends!!! Lots of love and freedom to you!!
July 4th is such a fun time in the states. My favourite 4th of July was when my old band Paperboy Jack was on tour and we happened to be in Colorado for the 4th of July. We were doing a photo shoot with a local photog and he took us up to a very, very, very small mountain town called Montezuma. (Population 32)
When we showed up- the whole town was there to watch our every move. It didn’t take long until we befriended them. It is a tradition that every 4th of July they take their “pet rock” for a drive and they let us jump on the truck for a photo op!
We also found a really cool treehouse that must have been there for years. It had signatures carved in the wood from the “treehouse leaders”!
I’m not sure what inspired us to put firecrackers in our mouths, I assure you, we did NOT light them….
Definitely a memorable July 4th!
I miss my old band. They were such a great group. One of those situations where you don’t realize what you have/had until it’s gone….
I LOVE Dunkin Donuts coffee. Almost as good as Tim’s…almost….
I CHERISHED those red boots. (John Fluvogs!) Still have them. I have had them for over 10 years. I’ve had the heels redone. I can’t bring myself to throw them out.
Our band was doing REALLY good too. We had fans all across the USA. One of our fans tattoo’s our name on her arm!!!! (a musical note that had PBJ in it) Our name was Paperboy Jack.
We played at The Viper room in LA, Kenny Castaways in NYC, Played at D-Fest in Oklahoma, SXSW in Austin… WE PLAYED EVERYWHERE!
If you want to add some new tunes to your library. Check out my latest songs on itunes!!!
Happy 4th of July…..
No day off for me today though. I have already voiced 10 auditions!!! Everything from an AT and T commercial to a Sci-Fi audiobook….it’s always an interesting mash up of text.
I did have a really nice weekend though…including the 6km hike up the mountain to Buntzen Lake!
It was our first time hiking up, but we knew there were a bunch of different trails to take up,
It was definitely an adventure. Everytime we got lost we would pull out my iphone and use the google map to see where we were. Little Blue Dot saves the day.
A little help from Mother Nature to keep up going….
Oops wrong picture… I meant these berries kept us going…Ummm ya….
It took us about 3 hours to get to the lake. But once we arrived, it was glorious and worth the trek!
We were hoping to camp out and spend the night, but the campground was full. Fair enough….
We were celebrating this guys birthday!! (his lil Ukrainian cheeks were stuffed with sunflower seeds…)
We played catch for a bit with a mini football and I “accidently” kept throwing it into the ice cold lake….hee hee.
It was a great time.
My brother and his lil family are driving out this way from Saskatchewan as we speak and we are going camping when they get here! They will be here tomorrow night, or wed…
My brother Dave is visiting my brother Cory right now in Lethbridge.
Baby Jasper and Uncle Cory.
They went hiking in Waterton Alberta yesterday. Jasper loves the outdoors! Can’t wait til they get here.
When I have kids- I am definitely getting one of these baby-hiking back packs. Alrighty…back to work. Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to catching up with you soooooooooooooooooooon! (How does tomorrow sound)
