Doodlewash Have Your Heard Of It?

I was approached by Charlie O’Shields from Doodlewash and asked if I would like to be Featured on his blog and website. I told him I was new to this and not sure I was ready as his site is gorgeous and has professional artists on there I look up to .  He assured me it was time and asked me to send him some photos and words.  Looking back at the should have, could have, would have, I wish I had shot a few works in progress to show my style lol who knew I had one.

I wanted to thank all of you who knew my story and watched this journey and yes I am so very happy and working on my future back when I started this blog I was not even sure I would have one so thank you.

I was feeling up to another drive.

It was early Friday and we thought for sure there would be no rain if we went far enough north.  We packed the dogs water and food for her and some fruit and sandwich fixings in case we got hungry as well.  We have not seen rain for two weeks and are due to have some and yesterday a few light showers passed through the White Mountains of New Hampshire but it did nothing to dampen our day as we are determined New Englander’s(wait is that a real word, lol?)

We headed up the highway till we hit the notch and the travelled across Route 112 West in search of a spot to get some panning done in the river and swing the metal detectors.  JT had her agenda as well simply just to PLAY!

We dropped her daddy off at the river while I took a familiar ride to most of you,

though this time the color was not so brilliant I was either a few days late or maybe early.  It was still a nice 20 mile ride to get a hot cup of coffee and for me and my girl to have some alone time.  She loves riding shotgun with me two chicks in a black truck yes you know we turn heads lol.

Some of you already know I have a shoulder that has been hurting badly and having just had an injection by the surgeon I was up to getting out and since I can not see him till Halloween why not celebrate by spending time out in nature with my two favorites.

 

Now for a few shots of color I captured along the way.

This shot I took beside me while I was at the gas station fueling up.

Summer and Fall play Tug O War

No fall color to steal the beauty of the covered bridge this year.

JT and I may not have found a lot of color along the stream but we found a little Zen and her daddy found some color in his pan!

Clearly some of the trees were more like me holding on to Summer for all it is worth.  Fall may be pretty to look at but next comes cold and snow and that is not welcome in my world yet.  Poor folks in WY and SD just got hammered with a nasty blizzard and all-weather marches our way thankfully it is 2,000 miles away.

We left the river and climbed up to capture a pretty view which you can find even if the weather is not perfect.

As we traveled southeast I stopped to capture a few shots of a lake and to let the dog stretch her legs it had been a long day of riding and walking so I will add a few more photos of the lake as I end this post and get back to catching up on as many of yours as I can with the sun showing up I maybe pulled away again .

Have a great weekend!

I forgot.  Yesterday was a day I listed to some Janis Joplin tunes as it was the day she died so long ago and as I traveled down 16 S I saw a place for Old Hippies and I needed some perfume,  that I have worn as my signature scent since the late 60’s, yes Patchouli Oil   lol “old hippies”  (well I was just a tad too young to be a real one thankfully or I may not have made it either) I am told by the young girl inside come in for it all the time.  This was the decoration outside their door.  Now what a way to end a perfect trip for COLOR!

Daily Prompt: Practice Makes Perfect?/Play the guitar to a song I wrote.

Tell us about a talent you’d love to have… but don’t. Photographers, artists, poets: show us TALENT.

The Talent I wish I possessed would be to pick up a guitar and play it,  as I wrote the words for a lovely song . Short and sweet it is what I would desire to do,  even if no one ever heard the music or read the words, to just piece it together would be  the best!

We Headed Out For A Free Show

We woke early to get ready to attend.  We took the truck and dropped of the dog with my Mom.  She was very sad and didn’t really want to see us go.  I knew she would be safe for a few hours with Mom and it was time for me to have some fun after the last week I had just been through. I had it planned down to the minute as we would drive 22 miles from Mom’s then catch one bus then catch yet another and a short walk would put us front and center of 1325 Commonwealth Avenue a place the band had called home and where they actually wrote a few hits.  I am talking about old friends from long ago you know them as Aerosmith.  So let mew show you some photos of a beautiful day we spent with them at a free concert they set up for us their FANS.

 

Waiting for the first bus

 

 

Flatbed Trailers full of Speakers, for the show, parked along the road ready to go.  They never broke them down!

They came in like our sports stars do in Boston, well they are ROCK STARS!
By DUCK BOATS.
They brought friends and family too.

They were going back home to where they had started this journey.

 

I have to tell you about some friends.  MR. Kraft and his Son who are owners of our NFL Football Team The New England Patriots!

They brought Footballs for each of the band members.  Game Balls.

Best of all they brought our Quarterback, I am sure you have heard of him lol Tom Brady.  The band had made a new track for them to use while on the field when they play.

 

When we arrived there may have been a thousand of us early birds.

 

 

We were up pretty close to the entrance of their old place.

 

 

One rig was for them to perform from the other two of these trailers loaded with speakers one for each side of this section of street.  They said there could be 100,000

of us fans show up.  I think they said it was more like 30,000 I can’t say as we were shoulder to shoulder dancing and screaming for MORE!

It was a cool day as you can see but Steven Tyler took of his coat and asked us to do the same.  I had dressed in layers so my light jacket was already tied around my waist but

boyfriend said we were nuts and he chose to stay bundled up.

 

 

TV and Radio stations were everywhere

 

 

Police too, but it was a party they really were not needed. They were loving the show as well,  even helicopters hovered above to take it all in.

 

 

 

There is always one in the crowd who never thinks of who they may be blocking so before they took her down they passed her their cameras

 

 

Steven Tyler turns to include all the college student who have gathered along the ground in front of their old place on Comm Ave

 

 

They shot us with cannons full of confetti they part was over it was time to send them back on tour as the following day TODAY their new album dropped

 

A sea of rockers as you can see and this doesn’t really show much at all as they had started to disperse from that end.

 

 

The Roadies break it down, sure wish they had had room for a piano we really wanted to hear DREAM ON maybe next time

 

A very orderly crowd

 

 

As you can see we were very well protected

 

 

 

Never been so glad to see our truck sitting and waiting for us safe and sound.  Time to get in and go see Mom and our little pup JT

 

Wish you could have joined us for the show.

Catch them when they come to your town they will have you rocking all night long!

 

Peace

Soulshine(written by Warren Haynes)

Gov’t Mule
Soulshine lyrics

Songwriters: WARREN HAYNES
Soulshine
When you can’t find the light
That guides you through a cloudy day
When the stars aint shinin bright
And you fill like youve lost you’re way
When the candle lights of home
Burn so very far away
Well you got to let your soul shine
Just like my daddy used to say
He used to say soul shine
Its better than sunshine
Its better than moonshine
Damn sure better than rain
Hey now people don’t mind
We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine till the break of day
I grew up thinkin that I had it made
Gonna make it on my own
But life can take the strongest man
And make him feel so alone
Now and then I feel a cold wind
Blowin through my achin bones
I think back to what my daddy said
He said Boy, in the darkness before the dawn
Let your soul shine
Its better than sunshine
Its better than moonshne
Damn sure better than rain
Yeah now people don’t mind
We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine till the break of day
Sometimes a man can feel this emptiness
Like a woman has robbed him of his very soul
A woman too, God knows, she can feel like this
And when your world seems cold
You got to let your spirit take control
Let your soul shine
Its better than sunshine
Its better than moonshne
Damn sure better than rain
Lord now people don’t mind
We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine till the break of day
Oh, it’s better than sunshine
Its better than moonshne
Damn sure better than rain
Yeah now people don’t mind
We all get this way sometimes
Got to let your soul shine
Shine till the break of day
The band was in town last night playing at our local beach venue.
They have been around making music for a long time, long enough for others to record their song, Soulshine.
It makes me smile.
Some day I hope to be able to put words together so the sentiment comes through.
For now though
these words he wrote will get me through the rough patches  in life.  Hope you all remember to let YOUR SOULSHINE
