We've all got our summer tunes. But while some of y'all are California Gurl-dreamin', Mom and Shuga D would much rather be "Home." Check out Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Local-gone-worldwide indie music hub (and Bragg Jam sponsor) TheBlueIndian.com will have an interview with them soon.
Remember that day you fell out the back window? Well, Mom says she would walk across broken glass and pick up all the pieces and chew on them if it meant for another moment of contenting nothing with you.
Cheers to the summer of 2010:
Moats and boats and waterfalls, alley ways and pay phone calls
I’ve been everywhere with you.
We laugh until we think we’ll die, barefoot on a summer night
Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you.

Mom's Creative Crew friends are at it again with another project to help Macon's unwanted animals. Check out the latest video created by Bright Blue and Texas T of the seriously cute dogs and cats currently available for adoption at the City of Macon Animal Shelter. If it doesn't make you go aww, well, I pity the fool.
Remember, me and my brother and sister mutts were all unwanted at one time. I've done my time at the pound and now I am eternally grateful for my forever home. Part of that gratitude is advocating for others who spent time in the cage like me. If there weren't five of us here in Candy's Land, Mom would already be signing their adoption papers. Why shop when you can adopt? Check out this fun-loving muttley crew:
So, summer's been a good one here in Candy's Land. Bragg Jam played hard and the hard work paid off. Mom and Shuga D celebrated another year, another memory with their own jam, of the mountain variety, at their favorite cabin retreat. They chased water falls, discovered rock slides and conquered the rocks and rapids of the Chattooga -- Mom's first time white water rafting!
The summer was beach time, lake time, river time, mountain time and busy time, but more than anything, it's been a we time . . . there's even been a couple of those moments were Mom and Shuga were like H.I. and Ed in Raising Arizona, holding hands across a couple of lounge chairs (or in their case, floats in the hot tub turned cold tub) and relishing the "salad days."
I still can't promise much - our lives are crazier than ever - but Candy Lou has definitely missed you.
