Changes ahead for the Daysies in 2020

firepitFinally Rebecca, Jennifer, and I had a chance to get together and talk about what’s ahead for The Crazy Daysies in 2020. Some things will change, but the most important thing will stay the same.

The band will be doing more shows out of the area. As the Daysies’ Web presence has grown, their supporter base has broadened. In addition to Florida cities, we’ve got Georgia, South Carolina, and maybe North Carolina in our sights for right now. Of course they’ll be doing shows here at home as well, just not as many as before. Continue reading “Changes ahead for the Daysies in 2020”

It’s no secret that I like original art. That includes visual art, jewelry, furniture, and music. Not long ago I saw a post on Facebook with an image of a pendant. The seller has an art shop in Newberry, South Carolina. As soon as I saw the pendant, I knew my daughter Rebecca would love it, so I bought it as an early Christmas gift. It just looked like her. I correctly predicted she’d be thrilled with the pendant. What I didn’t know is that we had bumped into a mystery. Continue reading “Handcrafted pendant sparks delight and a mystery”

I told Rebecca this would be a great addition to her Halloween greeting on her public music page.  Once the witch arrived, we got a big surprise.

On Saturday, September 28, the 3rd Annual Clay County Veterans Appreciation Day event wasn’t just another pomp and circumstance affair. Not only was there an awesome flyover, there was a moment when many of us were startled despite being warned ahead of time.  That happened when the cannon was fired. The volume of the thundering sound most definitely had an impact . I could only imagine what it would sound like if I was a soldier on a battlefield of yesteryear.
