Patron of the Arts

The first grade musical was called A Barnyard Moosical, and so of course, I already loved it, even if it didn't include Lennon dressed as a goat in a chef's hat, delivering quite a bit of sass while singing about pigs who shake their milkshake.

Her line was, "Most goats eat garbage and clothes off the line. Tin cans and paper, that's how most goats dine." Probably as long as I live, I will never forget that, mostly because she said it at least ten times a day every day since the day she found out she got a speaking part.

The musical was caught on video, but, because we're kind of not smart, we didn't take any pictures. And now our video camera, we have discovered, is too old for our computer. Time to suck it up and buy a new one? Hahahaha, you're funny. no. Eric has already begun his efforts to stick square pegs in round holes, with duct tape and wire and other things husbands use to avoid spending money directly. That video will get onto this computer, if it requires blood sacrifice and sayings about high water.

Really, it was a great way to spend the afternoon. I don't even mind having songs about funky chickens stuck in my head.

That sounds awesome, like a Sandra Boyton book come to life.

Amber, that is EXACTLY what it was like.

Hey, I might have some cables/old computers with old holes (wink) that would take your camera. If he doesn't fix it tonight, bring it over with you tomorrow.

You probably just need a different kind of cable to connect it. My husband has found all kinds of cables online to work with our ancient equipment. It might be worth checking out.

I think I agree with the "not smart" part of this post ;-).

Happy Thanksgiving
