So that pretty much sums up my trips to Memphis, Seattle, Oregon and Knoxville in the last month. Yeah, I really should take more and better pictures. I never really remember though.

  1. YAY BEN!

    …that has to be one of the best pictures of him. It’s so private. Um, I won’t even snatch it, because it’d feel sort of WEIRD to have. It’s lovely, though.

  2. While I took those pictures (and many others that didn’t come out because it was too dark) Rick was telling me how while they were on tour he took Ben to his mother’s house. Ben said, “Mrs. Steff, I love your son so much I’d take a knife in the chest for him.” And the obviously brilliant and charming Mrs. Steff said, “Well, Benny, that’s very sweet, but you boys aren’t going to get into a situation where that’d be necessary, are you?” So every time I see that picture I think of that story and my heart swells with love for both of them.

  3. HAHHAHAHAHAHAH Omg, that story!

  4. Oh. That’s so lovely. He’d take a knife for him…and she’s so clever. I love it. It makes me all…okay, I just want to put on my pajamas and sit on your floor with a blanket and LISTEN to all these crazy-great stories you must have by now…I’ll bring a handle.

  5. I hate you guys for being SO AWESOME.

  6. No idea who Rick and Ben are, but hte story with Rick’s mother is awesome.

    (It’s been a while since you did any pic spam, hightime the dryspell was broken.)

  7. I know!! Seriously, best sign ever in a grocery store!

  8. A handle? What kind of handle? Is this something to hit me with if my stories aren’t good enough?

  9. Barecelona!

    HEE, I don’t know why that cracks me up so much but it really does.

  10. A handle of bourbon, nance. What, is that a Maine term?

  11. Possibly. I don’t think I’ve ever heard it before!
