      Thanks for the reminder & positive outlook Gramz. It's not easy to turn the other cheek sometimes, especially when some people love to reside in a dark, fowl, & pessimistic mood 24/7. But, I agree 100% taking the high road is always a good idea. 

       

      Do I always do this? No, but sometimes, I actually follow my own advice though so it's a start. LOL! 

  2. It's a Rainy day and I have the morning off, so I am catching up on Forum life. :)

    Hope you all have a great rest of the day and week.

      I decided it was light enough rain this am to go ahead with my 3 mile walk.  About a quarter of the way into it, the sky opened up and I had a very soggy walk but hey, it's done!

  3. We may have to :cheers:  a lot at the game we're going to.    Just sayin'

      I am bummed too.  Although I thought Denver would win, knowing  it is hard to beat them at home, but I expected our team to look better than they did.

      I go in with lower expectations but they are ALWAYS in it at the end which makes the letdown much worse. Need to get over these injuries. How is everything going?

      Really hope that the team does better at home. Really should had won against the Lions!

  4. Thinking Peyton should draw my photo on one of those cupcakes..

      I haven't ate Papa Johns pizza in a while. I am not a huge fan of their pizza but it isn't bad. I may order one tomorrow while the Colts are playing and a cupcake too!

      We tried 2 pan pizzas last night.  You need to ask for extra sauce or it is too doughy.  I liked it.

      At 1 of my 3 alma maters that I graduated from, Papa Johns more or less had a pizza monopoly in town so we all learned to accept it or no pizza period. I do like pineapples as a topping though. It's quite tasty. 

       

      Yeah Gramz, your face should be on a Manning cupcake. Absolutely.

  6. Lady Antebellum did not disappoint last night.  

    1. Gramz

      Gramz

      Brad is one of my favorites.  Such a talented songwriter, and monster guitarist.   A real joy to see.

    2. southwest1

      southwest1

      I've never see Lady Antebellum LIVE, but from what I've seen on TV, they harmonize exceptionally well together. I'm glad you had a wonderful time Gramz. 

       

      Did Ron go with ya? Or was it a night out with a few close friends instead? 

    3. southwest1

      Glad to see that you & RG enjoyed listening to Brad Paisley recently Brent.

  7. Loved the HOF Class this year.  Very proud of our two Colts inductees.

    1. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yeah, it was nice to see Dungy & Harrison go into the Hall together. I really liked how Tony honored the black sideline coaches that came before him, especially the kind words he said about Dennis Green. Very classy indeed. 

    2. southwest1

      southwest1

      Slightly off topic: I really enjoyed Kevin Greene's speech. He is a very compelling speaker, has a good speaking voice, & with his vast knowledge of football, he would make anybody love to play under his guidance. Plus, his bronze bust was so Kevin man. haha Long golden hair & mean tenacity to annihilate all QBs in his path on the field. 

       

      His love & affection for his father's military career & all men & women in the service was just awesome. 

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      I also thought Jim Irsay did a solid job introducing Marvin too highlighting his tremendous work ethic. 

       

      I know he spoke first & that the sun was still out perhaps making it hard to see the crowd, but I always wanna see a person's eyes when they deliver a HOF speech talking about the pinnacle of their professional careers overall in context. 

       

      It's a minor point I know. I just wanna see their emotions as plain as day I guess. Still a good speech though on Harrison's part IMO.

  8. Just spent the evening being entertained by James Taylor.  I was in awe of this man's amazing incredible talent.   "How Sweet it is"

      Are you seeing anyone else this summer? We are in the process of closing on our condo and doing some construction work so weve got too much money going out and are just going to wait until November for the reunion game in Indy 

    2. Gramz

      Gramz

      @bababooey we've got a great outdoor venue a little over a 1/2 mile from our house. We walk up and listen to various types of music just walking around the area pretty much nightly.   Occasionally we'll get tickets and go to the shows.  Next week we have tickets for Lady Antebellum, and the end of August is Bonnie Raitt.   Yes, we're very much looking forward to the November game.   See you there...!!!!

      He has a great soothing/calming voice but it was much too soothing for me!  His concert was great but I wasn't the only one that felt that way.  Other concert goers were yelling, "We want your wife!"  That was in reference to Carly Simon - that concert was many years ago!  Again the concert was great but it had too much of a calming effect on me.

      I'm seeing crabbiness and Colts fans are not exempt

    3. Gramz

      Gramz

      Well that wasn't what I was referring to, but I suppose it also fits.  There's an awful lot of crabby everywhere these days, from politics, to sports, to heat related issues and so on. Sometimes I just think out loud.. haha. Carry on.

    I Love your quilt. I made one a few years ago with all my Peyton / Colts t-shirts, you may remember.

      I am doing well. You and Ron?  While I check in every day, I have not been as active. I miss you, SheColt, SCC, and many others here.

      Tanner is doing fine, thank you for asking. We're on our way to have lunch with him right now, as a matter of  fact.

      @southwest1 that Steve Miller concert experience is certainly a memorable one.  Front row seats made for a great time. And yes, I feel very fortunate to have such a great venue in my backyard,  so to speak.  @bababooeyHappy to hear you set the date.   Our summer is going greatso far, thanks for asking.@bababooey

    2. southwest1

      Thanks Bababooey for your additional info on Steve Miller my friend. There are days I wish I still had my Sirus XM Satellite Radio to hear so many genres, interviews, & comedians on it on a daily basis. 

       

      I had a feeling that there were politics & grievances real or imagined being played behind the scenes at the Rock N Roll HOF, which always upsets me. Good musicians & songwriters should be judged on their ability to play their instruments well, other artists they influence globally, the catchiness of their hooks, bridges, & choruses, their mass appeal over decades, gaining a following either underground thru bootleg demos or mainstream radio play, & record sales. 

       

      I was watching Dan Rather's show called "The Big Interview" on Axs TV channel last night & he was talking to Ann & Nancy Wilson from Heart on. Ann was talking about the sexism they dealt with for 3 decades by male journalists, executives, & Public relations consultants. Stupid nonsense like "Gee Nancy, For such a pretty girl you play guitar well." Talent isn't defined by a zipper in your pants you fool. Sigh...Or they expected both sisters to wear skimpy outfits in videos to sell more records. SMH. They never say to male lead singers, "hey tubby, lose some weight, step on a treadmill, & try on this girdle to hide your pot belly would ya? We're trying to increase your sex symbol status man not scare small children & mortify women dude." LOL!   

       

      I have so much respect for Ann & Nancy as performers & songwriters that it always infuriates me when some men assume that women cannot be tremendous musicians & trail blazers in their own right. 

       

      Anyway, thanks for the insights on Steve Miller buddy. A great guy, tremendous lyricist, & gifted on the guitar too. 

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      Happy for you & your lovely fiancee BTW Bababooey regarding the condo purchase & nuptial plans in your immediate future. 

       

      Hey Gramz, I know I tease you a lot regarding your close proximity to a great concert venue. The truth is this: You appreciate how lucky you are to be so close to exceptional live music & you & your husband perform & entertain others yourself with compelling covers & high caliber original songs I'm sure as well. 

       

      I also like what you told me about Steve Miller frequently bringing a gifted amateur guitarist with his band whenever he goes on tour. That is so cool! And very gracious & kind on Mr. Miller's part.

      Bravo Gramz. As a civics buff myself, I admire citizens who exercise their 1920 right when called upon regularly to do so.

    1. Gramz

      Yes.  We saw them live this past July...  Their live show was very similar to the documentary.  We loved it, and so glad we got to see them up close, especially with the recent passing of Glenn.
