You Can be a FiddleStar

I post things about fiddling. And how we can all be better at it.

<p>#tbt to earlier this week. He wasn’t super stoked about this. Very similar face to about an hour ago when I left for my #motherdaughterroadtrip weekend to Baltimore. I miss the boys already. #sirwinstoncup #bostonterrier #bostonterriercult</p>

<p>Found this handsome guy in the Robertson County YMCA parking lot this morning. He was very lethargic and wouldn’t eat anything I gave him and it was pretty apparent by his appearance that he’d been on the road a long while. He did have a harness on so he was someone’s pup at some point. I called Springfield Animal Control and they have him now. They are a low kill facility so I have high hopes he will find his people before they give up. But if you know him or think you know someone who might, please share. He needs to go home. #springfield #lostdog #robertsoncounty  (at Robertson County Family YMCA)</p>

<p>Found a really happy picture for a really sad day. I will miss you Trista. (Pictured left. Becca,on the right is still thankfully very much with us) You were one of the dearest, smartest, sharpest people I’ve ever had the honor of calling friend. (at Good Times…)</p>

I am excited to embark on a new chapter of my working life - I recently gave my notice to the Pam Tillis organization and will no longer be touring with her or Lorrie Morgan (on their awesome Grits and Glamour Tour). I must admit, I'm sad to be leaving. It's been an incredible four years and I have learned so much. Thanks to Pam, her amazing husband/manager Matt Spicher, and my bandmates, especially the lovely and talented Mary Sue Englund, with whom I spent more time over the last few years than I did with my husband. And I wouldn't trade a minute of it...
