And topping it all is my commitment to being a wife to a very fine husband.

In memoriam: Let us now praise the Daysies’ Yamaha Stagepas 500

It happened last night when Rebecca did music solo on the deck at Seven Bridges Grille and Brewery on Jacksonville’s southside. Just as she started a song, there was a pop. It was not a pretty pop. For a second, I thought she’d torched a guitar string. Then I saw the look on her face. Her first sound system, the one she bought when she started performing as a solo artist, had gone belly up.
