Garage Flowers for 26 years

Garage Flowers for 26 years

So, last weekend I spent out in the middle of Montana near White Sulfur Springs at the annual Red Ants Pants Music Festival. I was there enjoying the music, the vibe, some good brews and was part of the recycling crew for the weekend, so doing my small part to help out.

I had a amazing time and feel in love with two new bands that I had not heard of. One out of Ireland, was I Draw Slow. The other out of Boston was Darlingside. Both put on amazing shows and where not only great musicians but also great story tellers.

The song I want to share is “Garage Flowers” by I Draw Slow. It tells the story of a man who brings home cheap flowers to woo his gal but leaves the price tag on. Being happily married for 26 years (our 26th anniversary is Aug 3rd) I can totally relate to trying to do the right thing but sometimes it just doesn’t work out the way I planned. Maybe it is a guy thing….

Marriage is a lot of work but brings so much joy. I can’t even imagine my life without my best friend and wife Kristy. We have traveled the world, (I had to make sure that I could hang with her 24/7 before we actually got married – took two trips around the world to determine this 🙂 ) and raised two amazing kids together. We really enjoy each other’s company and always seem to have smiles on our faces. Happy Anniversary Kristy!

Anyways

Garage Flowers 

or as the Irish say it: Gara-ge flowers.

  1. Aw! What a sweet post! Great song, by the way. And no worries about leaving price tags on flowers after this post. Your wife will be tickled pink at your tribute to her 🙂

    P.S. Where’ve you traveled (or maybe the better question is where haven’t you been?)?

    1. Thanks for the positive post Kerri! Back in the late 80’s purchased a “round the world” airline ticket so as long as you continued travel in one direction around the globe you could go anywhere. Was in Japan, boat to the USSR and then Trans-Siberian railroad all the way to Norway. Second time in Japan, boat to China, Train through Mongolia up to Moscow and then back down into Romania and Turkey. Spent time in Egypt and then back. Since then traveled in Canada, Mexico and deeper in Africa and Central America.
      South America, Australia and New Zealand still on bucket list, hopefully soon…
