BYOC House/Studio Concert Series: AMY PETTY!!! Oct 12th 2014 @ 3pm

Amy Petty • Studio/House Concert • Sunday Oct 12, 2014 @ 3pm

Guys.  Girls.  Gang.  Seriously.

Amy moved away a few years ago across the country.  I miss her something terrible.

She contacted me saying she’s going to be swinging through New England for a week in October.  I wanted to hear her play live music to me.  So I suggested a House Concert here at the studio, to close out the 2014 series of “Bring-Your-Own-Chair” concerts.  She excitedly said YES!

So she’s going to be performing here at the studio on Sunday, October 12th 2014 at 3pm in the afternoon.  It’s Colombus Day weekend.  You all should be available.  Especially in the afternoon.

$15 donation at the door.  Then come and buy some of her cds.  Listen to her amazing voice, her amazing songwriting, her amazing EVERYTHING.

I want the studio packed.  I want to send her home with a wallet full of cash and a bunch of new friends.

Because she’s just that damn good.

Yoshi gets a taste of outside

Yoshi basks in the sun


I’ve had Yoshi since she was born.  She’s 16 now.  She recently lost her sister Gromit at the beginning of the year.   Before Gromit passed away, I kept saying to Sara that I’d like to start bringing them outside.  I never did, and Gromit never got the chance to experience outside.  Yoshi is a house cat.  We live near a very busy highway next to the MA/NH state line.  So a few months ago we’ve been slowly taking her outside with a harness on.  Mainly to see how she would react.  She’s still not sure what to make of the world, so she takes a few steps, stops, smells the air and then lies down.  She’s mostly scared, but each time we take her out for 20 minutes or so, she gets a little more brave.  Walks a few more steps.  I think she likes the grass.

Anyway, here is picture of Yoshi during her last outing.  The sun was in full bloom.  She likes the warmth on her back.

For the last few years, Sara and I have started a yearly tradition of heading down to the Salisbury Beach State Campground for 4-5 days a week before the official summer season starts.  We do this to beat the crowd, enjoy the sounds of the ocean, and just spend some time together making each other laugh and eating cooked foods from the grill.

I’ve been here a few times.  I always forget how clean and gorgeous this State Park is.  Everything is organized into sections:  the boat launch, the beach, the picknic area, etc.  Clean.  Streamlined.  I really dig it.

Don’t forget to exist outside.  It can be easy to forget to do when we have computers to keep us inside all the time.
