Go ask Alice

Since this week is so crazy I won't even attempt to try and create anything to offer as a freebie. It would probably turn out really bad anyway. What I'm going to do instead is share some of the pictures I took Sunday when we went to the final "free concert on the lawn" at Conneaut Lake Park.
Side note to clear up the confusion for http://willoaksstudio.blogspot.com/ (check out her blog, beautiful photography there) The buried alive in bread dough thing was because I am the baker at our local grocery store. This is fair week in our town and I'm bombarded with orders. The biggest day of the week will be Friday. My orders for that day are
8 dozen donuts (which need to be ready by 7a.m.)
60 loaves of Italian bread, sliced
50 loaves of french bread
300 dinner rolls
1 1/2 sheet cake
2 full sheet cakes
and my regular daily baking for the store. (poor poor me :)


So on with the pictures now. This one is a bike that we spotted while we were walking through the park. Wade really liked it because the back of it looks like a '57 Chevy. It was pretty awesome looking. I wouldn't mind riding around on it that's for sure.

The concert for the day was an Alice Cooper tribute. This guy was the singer. I like a wide variety of music and this took me back a few years. I did actually have an Alice Cooper album when I was in high school.

When they were on a break, Wade had asked him if they were going to play I never cry, which is my favorite Alice Cooper song. It's probably one of maybe a couple mellow songs that he ever sang. The guy said they knew it but it wasn't on the list for that day. Ah well, maybe I can dig up that album. So after the concert we were walking through the park and the guy came up to me and apologized for not being able to sing it. He said that they ran a little long and had to cut some of the other songs they were planning on singing. Wade asked if he could buy him a beer and he thanked him but said no, he had to drive. Just goes to show, don't let outward appearances fool you. The guy did put on a pretty good show too.
Well that's it for tonight. Have a good one everyone.

Hi Ann...

That is an insane amount of work. I guess you'll have to start around 5:00 or 6:00AM, huh? ;-)
I wish you all the best on Friday.

The first time I heard of Alice Cooper, I thought 'Alice' was a girl!

Yup, never judge a book by its cover :)

Oh my what a week you are having. I have worked as a cook and as a baker. I know you must be coming home simply wiped out!!

I too had an album or two of Alice Cooper. I actually like some of his music even to this day.

One of my favorites was Poison. I hope you will be able to get some rest this weekend!!

My apologies for being away but we have been socked in with rain still. It's going on almost two weeks now. yesterday I was able to visit until around 4pm and then both satellites went down.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can get caught up today!!

I agree with you about Will Oaks. She amazes every time I stop by there. I think she has some of the loveliest photos posted to be found anywhere!!

Hugs,
Jackie:-)

Nothing is better than a free concert in the park, and you're quite busy with baking. Your house must smell delicious.

Love the photo of the bike!

Hi Ann, I finally managed to get logged into blogger!! It has been two days but now the gremlins have gone, thank goodness!
That's some order, loads of work.
That bike is something else!! I've not see one quite like it..mind you I've lead a sheltered life, lol.

Just catching up so I'm going to comment on your rose pic. My first thought was you were describing me - 'old, weathered, beat up and seen better days' lol, well at least it's how I feel some days. And yes I've held on to roses till they look like your one. As I usually only get roses for special days I then add them to a collection I have in a bowl and add rose oil and the special day keeps going on.
Oh how I'd love to be able to make bread, only tried it once and it was like a brick.
You must be so tired after you day at work I'm surprised you have the energy to do anything.
Nearly the weekend and you might be able to chill a little.

Lunaticg I swear I will get around to posting a pick of the rest of the band, that was just my favorite from the concert.

Tahtimbo, I start at 6 a.m. every day. Thanks I'm going to need all the luck I can get.

Nessa, yeah not many guys with the name of Alice...lol

Hey Jackie, glad you were able to get some time in. Hope the sunshine comes back to visit you soon. They sang Poison on Sunday.

IcyBC gotta love free, not the house that smells like baking it's at work.

Donna, yep busy busy busy don't have my feet up but my butt is firmly planted in my chair for the night...lol

Hi June, sorry you're having problems with the gremlins. don't feel bad, my life is pretty sheltered too :)

Judy, so glad you stopped by again. I'm also glad to know I'm not the only one that keeps dead flowers....lol That's a great idea of putting them in a bowl with the oil.
