I don't mind putting in a shameless plug if a shameless plug is due: and in this case, it totally is.
This past weekend, my brother-in-law Jeremy came to stay with us, which is always a treat! It means extra special breakfasts in the morning, staying up past our normal 9:30 bedtime, endless guitar playing, and usually grabbing a beer at a local pub. This week was no exception.
J came into town to play a few shows with fellow musician, which was another treat. A Friday night date to a local cafe while listening to wonderful music? Sign me up.
Now, this is a bit off subject, but I couldn't help myself from photographing this wonder lineup of microbrews, many made locally. And I thought to myself, ‘Self, you know you're in the Pacific Northwest when you're staring at a lineup of local microbrews.' I love that.
Then, I saw this:
And I said to myself, ‘Self, you know you're in the Pacific Northwest when there is a white man with dreadlocks down his back'. For those of you who live in the wonderful Pacific Northwest with me, you know exactly what I mean. And even though full-length white man dreadlocks is not my thing, I do love it here. Love, love, love.
But this has absolutely nothing to do with why I am posting this.
Each time J comes into town, we have lots of time to sit and talk about life. We update him on the latest Georgia-poo incident and he updates us on the happenings of his wildly popular band Polecat.
I'm not sure who's stories are more entertaining.
And this, my friends, leads me to my shameless plug for his most wonderful band; a group of talented, down-to-earth musicians who have so much fun playing their music, it's absolutely contagious. So contagious in fact, I couldn't help but post the first ever video on The Elliott Homestead. Watch for the guitar player – that's J-money.
Heck, I may just post two:
Oh…and happy valentines day!
