Rock and Roll Girl

A million years ago before I was even thought of my dad, Chief, was a Rock and Roll man. He played the drums and wooed the women.

Well, my mom at least. If there were others we don’t talk about it since they met in high school and when we look at their old yearbooks my mom makes faces at the other girls he might have dated a time or two…

Me, not so much a rocker. I play no instrument with the exception of the occasional kazoo and even then it is more than shaky.

The Peep, on the other hand has received the gene. Just this morning she asked me if after school we could play Rock and Roll. She will wear the headset, she told me and I can hold the Echo Mic.

No problem for me, I LOVE the Echo Mic. Here you see me when I was about 20 with one in the dorm room of Home on the Range Author PWS. Also present my then roommate turned Peep’s godmother, Duke. But the real STAR of the photo is the Echo Mic.

Back to the Peep and Chief.
He came over a week or so ago to check on her while she was down with The Flu and they started a little jam session here in the living room.
Peep assigned the instruments and Chiefers and she went at it! Peep loves to listen to CD’s in the car and play DJ and she LOVES to sing along- but only with songs she deems “Rock and Roll.” Ones with fast tempos and lots of guitar and drums.

Slick and I in for a long ride…

Oh the Echo mic...What good times! I wish I could have seen Chief playing that cute pink guitar. Maybe he'll put on a concert for us next time we see him. :)

this guitar is new for the Chief, he may need a little practice. But I've no doubt, he can play with the best of them.... of course, the peep being the best!!

Does Peep want a guitar that cannot possibly stay in tune, but is still really noisy? I don't think the boys will miss one of theirs if she does. Tell you what - I'll just bring them both over this weekend....
