Normally I am not one to talk about something new here at the Woolen Rabbit. I don't know why I don't but for some reason I usually feel a bit uncomfortable about it.
Maybe it is from earlier blog days when some where criticized for having too many things...and maybe I DO have a few nice toys...but heck I work hard for them, right? Well.... this week 2 new things made their way to La casa Woolen Rabbit and I love each one with the same gusto!
Over the last few years I have lusted for an iphone but given that I live in Verizonland, an iphone was just not an option. I have an older ipod that works fine so when the itouch came out and I was tempted, but I resisted. The kindle came and again I was wildly tempted, but again....I resisted.....but then.......
The ipad came and I'm sorry, this time I could not resist. My kids all teased me saying it was an itouch for old people who can't see, but they were singing a different tune once it arrived. Risa said it best.........."my ipad, I think I could marry it!". I think she could be right. It's a pretty darn nifty tool right down to allowing me to using it for a credit card terminal for yarn sales. How sweet is that?
When Ashley was in college she was forever telling me that I should listen to Josh. "Mom, you will love him", "Mom...just listen once", "MOM...I think you should listen....pleease."
Always busy and kind of set in my ways about what music I like I never did find the time to listen to him until one day Ashley popped a tape of his in her car when we were going somewhere.
BAM.........."who is this I say?" "Why Mom....it's Josh Ritter", she says a bit smugly. HA....this child of mine knows me well. Ever since that day I have been a HUGE fan of his and even more so after seeing him in concert this past winter.
Click on this Daytrotter link and listen to a few tunes...you just might like him too. :-)
Pssst....Daytrotter is a pretty cool place....just sayin'
