The Best Vocalist…Period

danny_gokey1Sorry, that’s what I believe and my decision is not based on anything other than the vocal abilities and uniqueness.  Danny Gokey has that THING that makes you want to listen.  It’s truly a gift I believe.

Don’t get me wrong, I am happy for Kris Allen and he is an all american looking dude who I enjoyed watching win American Idol, but he doesn’t have the chops Danny Gokey has.

As for Adam Lambert, he does have that image like Elvis and uniqueness as well, but the voice isn’t attractive in a pop culture.  I think he will make an excellent rocker and would have made a great lead singer for any of the big hair and make-up bands of the 1980s and 90s. 

Anyway, they all will do well monetarily and America made a choice, but here’s the deal….I would only BUY the sound of Danny Gokey.  Sorry Kris and Adam.

Oh yeah…my family was pulling for Kris all along.


The End of an Era

Copy of 1182008 013Just got back from the Harbins 5th grade Graduation.  Ev graduated tonight.  We have no more children in elementary school.  We’ve done sock hops, fall festivals, PTA events, Christmas festivals, open house and many other events at Harbins Elementary School for the past ten years.  Now…it has come to an end.

The babies are growing up.  Next fall we have a middle schooler and a high schooler.  Wow…time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping into the future.

Do you remember when your children finished their elementary days?
