    I'll admit, fbook and pinterest are my two as well. And it's great to find such an awesome fellow Nebraskan! Go skers :)

  3. Thank you for the nomination! I much appreciate it. I have been blogging a year and a half and while I grow slowly in followers, those same ones keep visiting over and over and that means a lot to me. Love your blog, and I visit often:)

  4. I went to a Chris LeDoux concert in Basset at the farm expo once. I would agree with you that it was probably the best concert I've been too. I could probably count on one hand how many concerts I've been to, but still! I can remember all the guys frantically taking one last dip of chew before they threw their cans at him when he played Copenhagen!

    1. That's where I saw him too :)
      We were probably there together and didn't even know it!
      I loved when he sang on the bucking bull at the end!!!
      Good times. Good times.

  5. Aw, I about died when I read you saw Chris LeDoux in concert. He will FOREVER be my favorite!
