Do you ever feel like you’ve just dropped out of your own life? That’s kinda how the past few months feel.  We’ve been busy with the deer lease, a few trips, and work has been overwhelming at times.  So, I haven’t been around much.

One thing I’ve been doing is listening to Lucero- for longer than I’ve been away from the blog. . . . And almost exclusively Lucero- for months.  I told Cody about a month ago that part of is there’s no one else like them. . . there’s no genre to turn to, there’s no group that I can find that sounds like them. So, when I want to listen to that music, that’s all there is.  (Don’t even get me started one what the “like” features on Pandora or Itunes Radio give you- not really close at all.- But Pandora is how I found Lucero years ago, so I can’t totally complain.)  But, the bigger part of it is that I LOVE their music.

Cody has been slow to step on the bandwagon.  (Truth be told, he usually is. . . Fred Eaglesmith took much longer.) When we went to KC, I took over the music and forced him to listen to Lucero- and he started coming around. And, finally, I convinced him to take me to see them.

This past weekend they were in Oklahoma City (Wormy Dog), Dallas for a festival, and then Hot Springs.  When we went to the Wormy Dog, we came home sick from the cigarette smoke- plus it was on a Thursday and would have been harder to take the train again. We really didn’t want to go a festival, so we went to Hot Springs.  We drove up there on Saturday morning and then came home yesterday.

It was everything that I though it would be! So good!
