A Word A Week Challenge – Music

I have many (typically poor quality) images of people making music which I could have shown for this week’s Word a Week Challenge, but, missing home, I have gone back into my archives for photos from Jaialdi 2010, a Basque festival held in Boise, Idaho. Talented festival-goers had set up outside to play their accordions and tambourines, while others gathered around and danced. It was a beautiful sight, and everyone had a blast.

The third photo, just because I can. Early summer of 2011, just two months before I moved away, and as I was inching toward a year of unemployment, I won (WON!) two tickets to see Sir Elton John in concert. I’d never have been able to justify paying to see the show, and it was amazing. My daughter and I had a blast.

Music for your Election Day

A friend passed this along. The song happens to be an old favorite, but what they’ve done with it here really takes the cake. Warning: If you’re a person who thinks the government should tell ladies what they can and can’t do with our private parts, you might go ahead and skip this one.

 

Free Aerosmith Concert

Yes, I’ll leave work and walk three blocks for that, thanks for asking. So will every other person in my office, though they weren’t quite as dedicated about leaving early and staking out a great spot.

Patriots owners Robert and Jonathan Kraft introduced the band, while Jerod Mayo and Tom Brady were there looking pretty. Oh, and handing game balls to the band.

The lovely lady on Joe Perry’s guitar is apparently his wife.

So much fun. And a great way to spend a long lunch.
