« Part 375: I'm Starting to Plan the Scroll Saw Class Part 376 of My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond series Part 377: Wood Shopping Hangover »

I got the site updated with all the new stuff yesterday, and the weather looks to be good for the day so we are dropping the top on the Mustang and heading out to Halifax (to go WOOD SHOPPING!) and see what fun is in store for us! Our first trip of the season!

Actually, I am writing this yesterday so that you can read it tomorrow, which by now is today and I am long gone, as we are leaving at 5am. (How’s that for something to go with your morning coffee and tea?)

Sorry for short changing you on today’s blog, but the wood stores are calling and it’ll do me good to get out for a day. To make up for it, I have attached a video here of a song that came to mind. I haven’t thought of this song in probably over 20 years. I don’t know why I did, but I did and it is in my head so I thought I would share it with you in lieu of a blog. You know for me everything has a story (my daughter says I am like an old lady with my stories) and this is no different.

This was from the first vinyl album that I ever bought. “Why Foghat?”, you may ask. Who knows what my 13 year old mind was thinking back then! Besides the title track, this album also had their hit “Slow Ride” on it. I was going to play that one for you, but I thought that since the ride probably won’t be that slow, the title track was more appropriate.

So here is a morning song to wake up your corn flakes – “Fool for the City” by Foghat:

Oh, and think of me shopping for wood while you are listening to it so that we can stay on topic here please!

Enjoy your morning and day! :D
