Ellis Paul and Vance Gilbert

Last night Allison and I saw Vance Gilbert and Ellis Paul at the Rogers Center at Merrimack College.

Andrea drove Allison up and we met at Bertucci’s where Allison’s cousin Erin met the three of us for dinner. We had a nice dinner and fun conversation. Then we were off to the Rogers Center.

The Rogers Center is a great place to see a performance. The seats are nice and wide and the acoustics are great. We were in the third row and would have been even closer if the stage had been set up closer to the audience, A fact that Vance commented on many times.

Allison and I were impressed with Vance and his ability to make up songs on the spot and his humor. His musical talent was also great. Ellis as always was wonderful. We got to hear some of our favorites like “Put a Jukebox on my Grave” and “3000 Miles”. Andrea and Erin were Ellis newbies but I think that they also had a good time at the show. It was a great night and it was nice to share it with friends both old and new.

Where is Drew?

Drew has been mysteriously missing from the Blog for a few days now….. hmmm….. That must mean that he’s back in Evil Vancouver again!

Things have been quiet around here since Neil & Andrea’s wedding. Drew and I went to a VERY interesting open house at a home for sale in Grafton this weekend. And not good interesting…. it was no-work-had-been-done-in-this-house-since-1950 Interesting. At least we got a good laugh out of it!

I was off to my first meeting of the new year for the Zeta Chapter at Merrimack College Sunday evening. It was good to see the girls again and to see them all excited for Recruitment.

Last night I was at PetSmart in the cat room. That was fun. There are lots of great cats there, if you are interested in getting a sweet little kitty. I’ve totally fallen in love with a kitty named Zephyr who is at the shelter. But we have our two boys and that is enough for now.

Well I guess I’ve rambled enough… but that’s what is up with the Bennett/Sparks Household these days.
