~ My mother, father, youngest sister, and her friend came up to Ottawa on a camping trip over my birthday weekend. We went camping with them for my birthday. It used to be a den Boer tradition to be camping during my birthday, it was nice to revisit that tradition.
~ We went to see Ben Harper and Relentless7 at the Bluesfest here in Ottawa. They are relentless, but there aren't seven of them. There are three.
~ If you count Ben Harper as part of Relentless7 then there are more.
~ Our enjoyment was briefly interrupted by a gentleman for whom it might have appeared there were seven people on stage.
~ Bluesfest is great, although there seem to be more late night drunks bellowing from the street below on the weekends. One in particular was looking for Kristen (I heard Gretchen, Laurianne heard Kristen - we'll have to go with Kristen) to open the door for her. Kristen did not open the door for at least forty minutes.
~ I can hear Ice Cube right now. I think he might be angry.
~ I think he might not appreciate the unseasonably cold weather. But I got to say, Ice, at least it's sunny.
~ Thank you for the prayers.
~ I don't know if you've heard, but Michael Jackson has died.
~ I would like at least three scorchingly hot summer days this July. At least three.
~ Remember slap-on bracelets? Those were sweet.
