Arrived back home to find that my daughter had made a nice snowman family in our front yard. I love how she always has them face us inside the house instead of the street.
(is it just me or does my snowman butt look big?)
Nearly collapsed with back spasms after shoveling the heavy slush off of the driveway (and the neighbour's). Then headed inside for some hot coco and lunch.
Now it's time for the ritual xmas eve t-shirt iron off where we print up a few pics on some iron-on transfers and make some last minute gifts.
Cheers and Merry Christmas blog readers.

It was a slippery, sloppy, snowy drive to the Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, QC but it was worth it to catch a glimpse of the one and only Don Ross - the only person to ever win the US National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship twice. What an amazing show. This white boy can play like wildfire on fire. You'll never see more hammer-ons, pull-offs, smacks, slaps, knocks, harmonics, strumming, plucking, and picking in one 2 1/2 hour show ever. Truly a one man show.
Don in action...
Don meets BvT...
People say we look a like, whatta ya think?

This one was off of Cedarview...
This one is just me playing with the aperature setting on my camera and shaking it a bit. What do ya think?

The funniest thing was when one kid started laughing at the other saying that their gingerbread man's eyes were crossed. (what the !?@?)
I also got some more Christmas shopping done and I even wrapped a few while watching my new Jack Johnson DVD and having a whiskey or two. I'm sure Christmas morning will be "as per usual" when I fail to remember which gift it is that I wish to save as the "big one" for last. Sorry mama.

Alvin Youngblood Hart... a true bluesman visited the nation's capital last Thursday evening.
This was an awesome show. Although Alvin's better known for his acoustic blues, tonight he served up some hardcore electric blues backed by a Native American bass/harmonica player and an ex-skinhead drummer. What more can a poor white boy like myself ask for? The only downside to the night was that it was my turn to drive the Barrhaven Blues fan club and as such I was forced to go easy on the bourbon, scotch and beer. Nevertheless a good time was had by all.
