Welcome to The blog of whall

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

Today is Jaden’s 10th birthday.  That’s right, no more single digits for this boy.  He’s moving into those years of character development, self-expression and peer pressure.  I’d say he’s doing a pretty good job so far, and I’m excited to see what he becomes.

This morning on the way to school we sang the following song from one our favorite bands, Trout Fishing in America.

Sing along with us, won’t you?

I love these guys – if you have kids, you need to get a CD or two for them from this wacky pair.  Now they just got their 3rd Grammy nomination.

     Trout Fishing in America

I first saw them I don’t know how many years ago on PBS, or maybe even at a Renaissance festival when I was a pre-teen… and then recently we saw them here in Austin at the Iguana Grill.  What a show, what a pair of performers, and what great family fun.  And it’s not all just kids stuff.  Adults and parents get a lot of humor out of what they sing, too

Congrats, Keith and Ezra!

From their most recent email list “Dear e-Firsherfolk”:

Great news! We just found out that our most recent CD, My Best Day, has been nominated for a Grammy! This is the third Grammy nomination that Trout has received. Will this mean that the third time’s a charm? We’re not sure, but no matter what, we plan to be at the awards ceremony in Los Angeles, February 11th, 2007. Curiously, My Best Day was recorded on February 11th 2006. Coincidence?

Oh MY!  I just read in their newsletter that not only are they coming to Houston and Dallas, but they’re coming to AUSTIN again!  January 13th, at Scholz’s Beer Garden. Hmm, I wonder if kids are allowed in the beer garden.  It lists something called “Wheatfield” and I’m not sure what that is, but it sounds good to me!
