Where’s Kelly? episode #19885

Every once in a while, when I haven’t been blogging much lately, I feel compelled to provide an update on my life. This is because I have found out from people that they actually read (and enjoy) my blog posts. Apparently people are interested in my posts about random stuff like my gardening and cooking projects, my attempts at getting a music career going, funny signs and earthy humor. And who doesn’t like a little earthy humor now and then?

So what have I been up to? A lot of catching up. My music partner Scott Burnett and I have been working on a “light jazz” EP titled “A Glass of Summer”. (It’s actually more of an “MP” since it’s about 30 minutes in length.) Our original plans were to have this in the can by early June, but then my 88-year old dad got real sick and Scott went and got a real day job (the nerve of him!). I am happy to say that the project is finally mixed and almost finished being mastered. And now all we need to do is design the graphics and send it off for duplication. Check out the groovy cover art that Scott has been painting. This is the latest picture taken of it, but he is still working on it.

Now that the CD project is winding down and summer has finally come to the Pacific Northwest, I have plenty of house and yard projects to catch up on. Summer here is so beautiful once the sun comes out–and stays out.

By the way, if you live in the Seattle area, Scott and I will be performing at Match Coffee and Wine in Duvall starting at 7:30. Actually, even if you don’t live in the Seattle area, we’ll still be performing there. (tee hee)

Perhaps you are wondering why this particular episode is number 19885. That happens to be the number of days since I was born. It took a while to go through all the calendars and count up the days. Just kidding! Of course, all I  had to do was google “days from birth calculator” and sure enough, there were several sites out there. The one I used can be found at http://www.easycalculation.com/date-day/age-calculator.php. You should try it. Let me know how many days you have been around.

Hey, I finally got pictures back from my summer camp appearance and forgot to post, so here you are. I got invited to Lutherhaven youth camp in Bremerton(ish) to share about songwriting and about writing “Draw Me Close”. The kids were great! And they loved our dog Jake. Hanging out at a Lutheran summer camp brings back memories (I was raised Lutheran). A highlight for me was when the kids sang their own special rendition of “Pharaoh, Pharaoh”, which went something like this:

Pharaoh, pharaoh, whoa baby
Let my people go, uffda
Ya sure, ya betcha

These kids are from Poulsbo, which is known around here as Little Norway. Pass around the Lutefisk!
