Fun Day

We've had a fun day today. We headed down to Tuscaloosa this morning to have lunch with our old friend Jerry Henry.
I'd call him a musicologist. He's been writing about music for most of his life. He knows, and has written about famous musicians, and ones that should be famous.
We talked to him today to pick his brain about how to better package our act (Rick and Jilda Singer Songwriters).
He gave us down and dirty tips about mailing lists, sound, marketing, promotional kits, video, and how to improve our website.
We got all this for the price of a Dreamland BBQ lunch. It was a steal on our part. (But you REALLY have to read Jilda's posts on Transformation Information.) It's a hoot.
You should do yourself a favor and visit Jerry's website Alabama Music Office 
Tonight, I went to the first football game of the season for my high school. I do the alumni website for the school but I do pictures at the homegames each year.
The last few years were just sad for our little school. This year started out with a bang with a 45-8 win over an arch rival.
So yes, today was a fun day.


  1. Tuscaloosa is a wonderful name for a town!

    Glad you had such a good day :)

  2. Our football season hasn't started yet. What got my attention - the bbq place. Miss southern bbq!

  3. Busy yet happy... I love that!


  4. Sounds like a wonderful day of fun!

    Aren't we ahppy to know the wright people and call them friends as well.:))Will check out ladies blog..Didn'get to it before;)Cheers

  6. Sure does sound like fun. :) BBQ sounds good. Hmmm. Perhaps tomorrow.

  7. Hi Rick. I'm having a little break from my blog at the moment, as I'm with family in Paris, but Ijust had to pop over and say what a super photo of you and Jilda. Then, DOH, I realized that it was Jilda from Transformation Information. All this time, I've been thinking, "that's funny. Two people called Jilda, as it's quite an unusual name!". I do follow Jilda as well, but never knew you two were connected. Well, there you go, you learn something every day.

  8. Hooorah for dirty tips! LOL!

    Awwww you and Jilda look so good together!

    Hoorah for your old high school - great start to the football season! And no I haven't a clue about american football but hey,you lot won! That's good enough! Take care

  9. @Sarah Tuscaloosa is a Native American name. Many of the rivers, Small towns and roads have NA names
    @Warren, this place has the best rubs I've ever had. They ship them around the world.
    @JJ. Busy but happy could be our life motto.
    @Bethe77 that it was. We really ahold do this more often.
    @Dzoli, we've been blessed through our lives, with remarkable people
    @ Lois I highly recommend BBQ. It always seems especially good on Fridays (or Tuesdays.......)
    @Thisisme another blog buddy just recently made the connection. We've been married 37 years. I guess I should follow that by saying there are still outstanding warrants for me for marrying her so young :)
    @Kitty thanks so much. I must say it was humorous to see her in designer shoes with BBQ sauce on her toes. You can take the girl out of the country, buy you can't take the country out of the girl:)

  10. Sounds like a great day, yeah for the football team. off to a great start.
    congratulations on you and your wife being together 37 years...too bad about the outstanding warrants. lol..
    have a great weekend.

  11. I love hearing about fun days! May you have many more!

  12. So good to know you had such a good day, Rick! Lovely picture of the two of you and I wish you both great success with the implementation of all the insider tips you gleaned from your meeting!

  13. Glad you had a fun day, your writing comes over as very cheery!

  14. Lunch with a friend, talking about music and then a football game. It doesn't get any better than that!

  15. Glad you had a nice time!

  16. I'm so in need of a fun day.. If it would include BBQ then I'd call it complete! Cute pic of Jilda and you. Our first HS football game is tonight. Thankfully the weather is cooler!

  17. Yep, sure does sound like a good day! I'll have to pop on over and say hello to Jilda too. :)

  18. Hey wait - is that Jilda? She's adorable! You dog, you...
