Summer is a wonderful time in Middle TN and we enjoy being outside as much as we can. On weekends it is not unusual for the family to enjoy a swim in the pool, roast a marshmallow or two around the fire pit and of course BBQs are also big.
As soon as Katrina’s feet hit the ground in the morning on a weekend she is headed for the barn. Once she has fed the animals a select few are permitted to roam the property and snack on fresh green grass under the big shade trees. Sometimes all of these activities come together in strange ways. One such occurrence took place when my daughter, Kandi, and her husband, Jeff, came over to celebrate Father’s Day.
It was the usual, with a twist. We were just finishing up with our picnic next to the pond when Rosy (Cobra’s Rose Petal) decided our human food looked a bit more inviting than her lush green grass. She preceded to stop by the table and take a mouth full of corn off of Jeff’s plate and then there were a couple of rolls that looked pretty good to her!
The next time you tell your dog or house cat not to beg at the table just remember Katrina lets her favorite donkeys sit down (Or is that stand up?) at our table and join the family for a meal!
Rosy cleaned her plate and then asked what was for desert!
Boy, I can’t wait to see what will happen on the 4th of July when my son Rick, his wife and my grand daughter show up! I am sure there will be some more stories to be told and pictures to be shared.
Obviously, this is a site all about Miniature Donkeys and related activities. When we are in the barn there has to be music playing and it has to bew either oldies Rock and Roll or Country. Living just outside of Nashville means that Country Music is everywhere and concerts are a big part of the life here. Last week was the annual CMA Music Fest with Country Music fans here from every State and 23 Countries; nearly 100,000 fans.
Although not much of a fan of large crowds Katrina and I decided to take advantage of an opportunity provided by SiriusXM Satellite radio and attend a free Little Big Town concert during the CMA Music Festival. The tickets were free and we both love Little Big Town and the weather was great so why not? It turned out to be a once in a lifetime experience that we will remember for years to come.
When we arrived at the theatre and picked up our passes we were ushered into a very small broadcasting studio in the top of Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville. There were only 50 seats in the room and we could literally reach out and touch the performers! Little Big Town entered the room to a greatly excited and very small crowd for “our private show” that was recorded and broadcast on the The Highway XM Channel 50.
Not only did the band give us a private performance, they had a small gift for everyone in attendance, took questions from the audience and performed for us like we were relatives.
From now on we will have more Little Big Town music on our MP3 player for sure!
