I used to be cool

so Wilco is a band... http://www.wilcoweb.com/..

it's also a farm store... http://www.wilco.coop/Divisions/Farm_Stores/

way back in a prior life when I lived in Philly I worked as a designer at a downtown ad agency and used to go see bands with a girl I worked with. Her name was Claire too... we had fun we both loved the same kind of music and she seemed to have the touch for finding amazing new bands.... I remember seeing sun-volt and wilco way back when ... I think it was 1994 or 1995 or something like that WAY before cowboy rock , rock-a-billy etc what ever you want to call it was cool ...

we uhhh hung out with the band yes you could easily say groupies, I seem to remember a few post show nights at the south street diner and the rest is blurry... let's just say nights from a past life... details that should be forgotten...

anyhooo...

today I went shopping with my husband.. and I bought a pair of jeans(wranglers) and a pair of carhartts.... yes and I bought them at Wilco Farm store.. humm I just bought clothing where I buy my pig food ....

You're still cool! Just a different kind of cool. 8-) How are the pigs, chicks, llama, etc.? I spoke too soon last night about the peach leaf curl - it's staaaaaaarted! But since I got 7 eggs yesterday, who can complain? Front window is almost completely done being replaced, and I saved the small side windows - to make a cold frame. I'm thinking in front of the garage door for a mobile frame - that sound right to you? I hope I get to see you both again - Lois

re: peach curl.. I wouldn't worry it's ugly but dosen't hurt the fruit too much in my experience ..7 eggs!!! oh wow those girls are still laying that's AMAZINNG they must be VERY happy : ) they are lucky to have you ... good for you for keeping those windows... re: where to put the cold frame... humm well you'll loose all that great morning light because of cindy's house and those black walnuts : ( she has unless you talked her into cutting them down.. : ) ... I'd say the front yard in front of the gate is the way to go for the cold frame ... can't beat it for south light and then you miss that over heating west sunset heat as the camilias and house save you from that.. just my opinion after 3 glasses of wine : ) xoxo c

my favorite kind of cool people are the ones who walked right the other direction from anything that was wearing a tag called "COOL".
