Whooooo Hooooo!! I thought that would be the best way to describe my night with Seether, Bush and Nickelback. I missed My Darkest Days as traffic kept one of our tickets from arriving in time, but I am pretty sure I didn’t miss much!
I really enjoyed Seether and Nickelback, Bush not so much, but that didn’t matter. During Bush, I found words slipping out of my mouth that sounded more like my mom’s “I couldn’t even hear the singer, the music was so loud!” ha ha! But true.
I was so impressed with Shaun Morgan, the lead sinter of Seether. He could sing beautifully and then instantly go into a crazy growly scream, or something like that!!
This was my first Nickelback concert, well my first “rock” concert in many years. I will definitely return!
Nickelback takes a lot of heat and I am not sure why. I can’t say that I am comfortable with many of the lyrics, but it was quite apparent by the age range of the packed house that they are very popular in Saskatchewan. From what I know, it isn’t easy for a Canadian Group to make it in the music industry and they certainly have made it.
From Nickelback we headed North, to my sister’s cabin for a family weekend. We even managed to enjoy a couple of beautiful hours on the boat. Delaney even took a quick wade in the water. That is her second Annual May Long Polar Bear Swim.
Hard to believe how warm it was last weekend, with a few snow flakes flying around this week. I know I bring up the weather far too much in my column, but snow.... really??
I have yet to do any garden/yard work and it isn’t looking like I will be any time soon. I guess my procrastination is working out for me this year!
Plans for Coronach’s Canada Day celebrations are starting to come together. We received a poster today and it looks like fun.
We usually head North to Carrot River to my sister Penny’s campground to spend July 1, but this year we will stay home. We will be busy trying to support the activities in Coronach, Big Beaver and Willow Bunch. I was so thrilled to hear that activities were being planned. I hope it is well attended.
I hope you are making plans to enjoy Canada Day in the area. Better yet, invite some company to join you!
A bit of a discussion about the planned fireworks sprouted up on Facebook. I, of course, had to get my 25 cents in (I could never stop at 2 cents).
I am all for a few fireworks and I was glad to see donation sheets up so that interested people could help out the cause. My nephew, Cody, fired off $25 worth at the cabin the other night and even that was fun! I think if they try to keep the length and cost down it will be great.
My biggest worry for the activities of that weekend is how I can get into the shape required to play two days of ball! I so miss the fun we had when we used to play ball on Friday nights.
I am going to try my best (which isn’t great) to do some walking at least to condition myself for a couple jogs around the bases!
If you happen to drive by and see my walking, just pull up behind me and lay on the horn! That should be good practice for running the bases, with Grant or some other person that is in much better shape, hot on my heels!
