Carly Pearce Pays Tribute to Dear Miss Loretta

Carly Pearce was scheduled to play the Grand Ole Opry last night, and upon the news of Loretta Lynn passing away at the age of 90, she posted this tweet: 

During her set, Carly played a voicemail she had gotten from Loretta last year for the audience, then played her song "Dear Miss Loretta". Watching this I had goosebumps, some tears, and yes, the voicemail did make me smile, I can only imagine being in the audience! What a beautiful way to honor one of the Grand Ole Opry's most beloved and iconic members, Loretta Lynn.

The city where every day is Halloween

This past Friday, my mom and I visited Salem,Massachusetts...it DID NOT disappoint! It was September 30th, so everything AND EVERYONE were all decorated for Halloween, but without all of the parking restrictions and INSANE crowds - that started the next day...LOL. We took a trolley tour around town and saw a few of the sights that were used in the filming of 'Hocus Pocus'. We learned more about the witch trials of 1692, saw some important landmarks having to do with the trials and visited the Witch Museum. 

Some of the architecture there is indeed from the 1600's. Salem is quite impressive and you can easily spend 2 days there seeing everything it has to offer. One thing I learned is they take witches seriously there! Just like Roswell,NM has alien heads for street lights, Salem has a witch sitting on a broom on the doors of their police cars and the shoulder patches of the police uniform. I love it!

Oh Dear Loretta

Today we lost a legend, a trailblazer, the Queen of Country...Loretta Lynn passed away at the age of 90. 

The overwhleming love and admiration that was, and continues to be, shown for the "Coalminer's Daughter" from her friends. fans and peers is all well deserved! An amazing woman....160+Songs, 60 Albums, 45 Million Records Sold World Wide... 4 Grammy's, 7 AMA's, 13 ACM's, 8 CMA's, Songwriters Hall of Fame and more.  Their are so many accolades. Rest In Peace, Dear Loretta.

Boy, did she leave a lasting impression with fans, country and basically everyone she met by the looks of all these posts.

The Kennedy Library & Museum

Part of the firsat day of my vacation in Boston was spent at the Kennedy Library. In kind of a weird, spooky twist...we visited on the 62nd anniversary of the famous Kennedy/Nixon televised debate (Sep. 26th)! Being it was JFK's only term and election, much of the museum is spent on the election between him and Richard Nixon. Another huge topic discussed is the Cuban Missle Crisis. VERY interesting to look back on. As the library sits right on the bay, there are absolutely beautiful views of the water and the city of Boston. Totally BREATHTAKING!

I have visited several presidential museums/sites:

1. James Garfield home in Mentor (Highly recommend btw...and SO close!)

2. Rutherford Hayes home in Fremont

3. Andrew Jackson's Hermitage Home & Museum in Nashville

4. LBJ's boyhood home & ranch outside Austin,TX

5. The Nixon & Reagan Libraries outside Los Angeles

While the Kennedy Library is not my favorite of these sites, I still enjoyed it and feel it's a great way to learn about our history.

Cheers to a vacation!

So last week I was on vacation. In case you can't tell by the picture, my mom and I went to Boston. Boy did we have a great time! OF COURSE we had to stop by Cheers (did not go in though)!

 

We also spent a little time walking around Boston Common and the Public Garden which brings me to the ducks. Stopped and took a picture of the "Make Way for Ducklings" statue, which was made famous by the 1941 book by the same name. I have never read the book, however the statue does mean something to my family. We last went to Boston some 30 years ago when I was a toddler, and had our picture taken - my mom sitting on mother duck, while my siblings and I were sitting on ducklings behind her. Kinda neat to go back all these years later :). 

 

I could go on and on, but I will save the rest for other blogs in the coming days. Look for information on the Kennedy Library, Salem, Plymouth, and more!!! More great pics to come as well! As always, although vacation is a lot of fun, it is nice to be home.

WYNN - Eat Of The Week

I am not a gigantic fish eater, but somehow I do like salmon.  I like it smoked, and other ways when it's cooked creatively.  Salmon can be fishy, but this sounds REALLY good!

Let's give this a go!

Spicy Salmon Bowls!!
