Last night we went to see For King and Country (Christian rock band) and they were amazing! It's been a long time since I went to a rock concert and it was so worth it The tickets were a Christmas gift from DD and she got us front row seats! You could see them sweat. Love their music and the light show was really something else. If you are not familiar with them, check them out on Youtube. Fantastic family entertainers.
Reminds me of the time we told our daughter we were going to a "rock show". She said, WHAT??? What kind of rock show?? We told her the gem and mineral kind.
LOL! What a disappointment for her.
Thanks for your recommendation, Lynne! I 'll check out their video on youtube or see if they have a playlist on Spotify. I enjoy Casting Crowns a lot; they can really "get goin'" too!

My DD and I went to see Casting Crowns when they were in Peoria and they are great too. Check out King and Country's "Ceasefire" video on you tube--it's my favorite.
Do you still have lots of water laying in the fields like we do? Poor farmers are sure wanting to get their crops in,
Oh my yes! Water everywhere, and more this morning. DH plays golf weekly with a bunch of other "senior" guys, and they haven't been able to play even once yet. Courses are under water or are bearing the results of overflowing creeks--sand, rocks, branches, etc. all over. And the poor farmers! When are they going to be able to start planting? I really feel for them, since I know how antsy they get when the days get warm. Our sump pump has been working non-stop for days, and it's a mess everywhere, except for us quilters, who have learned how to spend a day forced indoors by the weather.

It just starting to pour again! This is getting old. Several of our dike roads along the Illinois River have been closed because the water is right up to the bottom of the bridges. There is talk that the bridge over the Illinois will close maybe tomorrow. We lie on the east side of the river, but most of DH's business is on the west side. He will have to drive up to Pekin to cross if he needs to go over there.
One of my very good friends here in town is married to a corn/soy bean farmer and this couple is my age; well past retirement age but still farming. She says her DH is really miserable to live with this spring because he cannot get in to the fields ... more miserable than usual because "at his age his fuse is really short". Plus he went out to fire up a combine (just because) and there was a raccoon in the innards somewhere. There was lots of damage so he had to file an insurance claim and there was the dickens to pay over that ....
