SHORT WEEK, I’LL CATCH YOU ON FRIDAY!!

Music throughout the weekend. “Metallica”, “Halestorm”, “The Beaches”, “Foo Fighters”, “Tool”, & “Tremonti”

 

Left for my family’s cabin Friday after Kim finished work & when we were done packing on Friday, shortly after 7:00 pm.  We ate en route, it’s almost exactly a 1 hour drive.  We haven’t been there the last 2 years, & no, it’s not winterized.  One of my cousins from Manitoba was there with my mom & another couple most of the week.  Short trip, but well worth it! We stayed up Friday with the guys watching “Hot Fuzz”, an instant classic, on Netflix & the girls playing cards.

On Saturday we drove to Chamberlin to ‘Twisted Sisters’ for some always tasty ice cream in the afternoon.  An appetizer for a meal of deep fried tiny fish bits, seasoned & deep fried potato skins, & deep fried turkey.  Thanks to Ray & Karen for the great meal.

We stayed up to play cards & drink, all 7 of us, on Saturday night.  Dad & Ray have been working at remodeling the cabin & have made the washroom easier for me to get into aka more accessible for me.  I believe there are more changes to come, & I’m anxious to see the finished product, so far it’s looking very good!

Drove back home on Sunday, just to get some stuff ready for the week.  Just do some of the stuff for the week ahead.  My body was absolutely craving water & vegetables.

 

I guess the “Into Eternity” release on Friday was only a preorder?  I’ll grab a CD when I see them next time in concert if possible!  They’re from Regina so I’m sure I’ll see them live!

HALESTORM

A brother & sister along with two friends.  The group is based in Philadelphia.  They call themselves a metal band, I would call them a hard rock group though.  3 guys & one girl.  The drummer is the singer/guitar player’s younger brother, the two friends are filling the sound on bass & lead guitar.  The brother & sister started the group in school at a talent show.  The 2 of them played & a fellow student asked what their group was called she replied “Halestorm” since their last name is Hale.  They have 4 studio release albums, 1 live album, & 3 EPs of 6 songs each of cover songs.  Their 4th studio release came out on July 27th, 2018.  The first 2 albums I find to be very similar.  I like both although they’re both very similar.  I’ll give you 2 songs from each of the first 3 albums & we’ll see what happens with the latest release…
