Honestly we can blame Barbara for that one. I don't know if it's just me, or the fact that this dyslexic brain is wired a bit differently (don't even say it...), but sometimes it just takes someone to say one word or phrase and a song is stuck there. Yesterday she was talking to a customer and remarked about her knitting and said something along the lines of "Well, Maybe this time it will work out." and that was it. I know I had Denise giggling at least once as I gave her a few bars. She was laughing at my voice, I know. I will never be another Michael Buble, but I can pretend.
So today it's this song.
It was playing on the radio a few weeks ago and I had never heard it before. Today however I quickly googled it when it came on and now I can't get enough! I really like this acoustic version not only for the different sound and finding out that his voice is not synthesized at all, but also the beautiful room they are in.
I know it's not a tune tuesday and these are not Youtube musicians; however, I also found this video while trying to find the Bastille tune and was impressed to find that this artist who I already liked is also not synthesized either. Considering house and dance music is her fame and that synthesizing is often done in those and her voice has a tone that I assumed was not inherent to it naturally. I thought it was neat and makes me like her sound even more.
Okay, enough of that stuff. Lets discuss what's happening here. Remember when I stated the other day I needed to get off the computer and go check out the park?
As you can see, it's getting green without them. Remember me sharing a snow filled picture of these?
This is the same park, little different area. And see the green haze in the trees back by the river? The leopard frogs really like this little field. You frequently hear them growling from the puddles and grasses as you walk by.
Bob sent me a text as we were heading back so we took a short cut and I still don't know how I managed to see this guy on the trail ahead of us. He was way up there and this was the closest my little camera would zoom before getting pixelated. I've seen these guys before and think they're ground hogs or one of the local species of Marmot. I know, I think of Marmot's as the Hoary Marmots that like high altitude taiga above the tree line back home. We called them whistle pigs because they give off a loud shrill whistle when startled to warn the rest of them around.
I swear they can sense when I am trying got get a good picture. I had the dogs in a heel by me and he disappeared out of site. I thought at first perhaps it was a musk rat we've seen a couple times and he had gone down to the pond. But we found this hole when we got near where we saw him disappear. The boys were very interested in it so I'm sure he was down there. We moved on and left him in peace.
Speaking of peace, this morning we had a good walk with all the kids before heading to breakfast.
Just ask Sullivan and Tucker. They had a great morning. What's better than a walk on a good path and a nice
stick sapling to carry around in the sun? Now, I have to go eat because I think The Guy is thinking my blood sugar is getting low as I fight with this computer. Have a good closing of the weekend everyone!
