Rhonda and I took the camper down to James Island Campground last weekend.  It was just us as Seth was still visiting family up in NC since they weren't able to travel just yet.  We had a good time just relaxing and riding our bikes around the park.  It's so very nice having an excellent campground so close to home.

Time for a new guitar amp!


My friends at Ye Olde Music in Hanahan came through again with an amazing amp at an even more amazing price.  I'm now the proud owner of a '65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue (DRRI).  If you need gear, go talk to Michael Davis at Ye Olde Music.


I can't believe we bought Seth drums for his birthday!!!

No cheap toys here.  Real Ludwig drums in a kids size kit.  Oh, and the color...  Blue!

Well, it didn't explode...  But...


If you know us, we've been having issues with our freestanding gas range for some time.  We had finally been using an extended warranty on a major appliance, so that's a first for us.  Ultimately, working with Whirlpool directly, we determined that the range couldn't be repaired.  So, combining the warranty buy-out and what Whirlpool was willing to do for us, we replaced it with a new Wolf freestanding gas range.  You can't beat a 5 year warranty!  It was a little pricey and after moving it into the kitchen I think they sell it by the pound.  Overall, it cooks so much better and we're very happy with it.


The lesson here is if you're not happy with an appliance and it's a danger to your home and family, contact the manufacturer.  I did, and they were very willing to work with me to diagnose the problem and solve the problem.
