  The Sweetest Band!

Morning everybody. Isn’t it pretty out today? Too bad I hear we are supposed to get soaked later today. Go get all those errands and your outdoor fitness accomplished now, this afternoon is gonna be a wet one.

So yesterday we had a printing rep stop by and drop off a big bag of Malley’s Chocolate…and while we tried our best to resist the dark chocolate covered pretzels (FAVE!) were calling out name…munch munch.

When we opened the box we found the cutest little flyer for the new Malley’s Marching Band. Even though I was never in a marching band and could only play the piano…I was intrigued.

The band website says “Join the Sweetest Marching Band In The Land.  Attention all former marching band musicians.  If you love to play and miss your marching band days, fill out the form below to join our all volunteer band!  All skill levels and ages welcome.  You must own your own instrument, we’ll supply a band shirt.  Sign up if you’re looking for a non serious fun time band.  Limited to the first 300 sign ups.”

So all you old band lovers, get out there and show us what you got. I look forward to seeing you at any one of the summer parades! It will be so SWEET! Have a great Tuesday.

  1-tank trip : Columbus

This past weekend I had the opportunity to take a Saturday, 1-tank trip to Columbus. The skies were bright blue and while 71S was swarming with police cars we managed to make it there in just over two hours with no stops.

We arrived to a quiet Columbus starting our morning with breakfast at North Star Cafe on High Street. Not only was the breakfast yummy, the unlimited magazines and people watching was even better. After breakfast we headed to the new Rothko exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art. It was awesome, a three room intensive on the life of the artist and how his works once more figurative morphed into intense color studies. Also along with the Rothko exhibit there is this fascinating exhibit of Czech puppets on display in the other galleries, almost as cool as Rothko, but also sorta creepy. You have to check it out!

Just one reason why I love Ohio City…

The great alley ways behind the homes and the gorgeous gardens that line their paths.
Enjoy.
