Feel good Friday

I knew that I would now...

So why are James and I feeling so happy today? (and you can't deny that James is happy. Just look at him for God's sake)

Because, my friends, for one thing... it's Friday!

But if that's not enough, I'm also feeling good for a few other reasons:

Party at my place tonight!
I'm feeling good because The Receders are playing tonight at The 400 Club right here in St. Cloud. This is something that always makes me happy. There's nothing I enjoy more than rocking out at a hip nightclub with a couple hundred of my closest friends.

And I'm callin you fellow Minnesotan's out on this too. There's no reason you can't stop by and have a few beers with me tonight. In fact, I've conveniently located this event right smack in the middle of the state to make it easy to get to. See you at 8:30!

They loves me at the baby store
I'm feeling good because the folks at Graco baby products (specifically Jon DeHart - thanks Jon!) have awarded me this awesome award for my post Axe Gone Wild. Apparently Jon has a 13 year old son who likes to douse himself in Axe as well. All I can say is... I feel your pain.

But the thing that intrigues me most is the fact that Graco has bloggers on staff! How cool is that? In an era where most companies treat blogging like some kind of disease, Graco actually encourages it! All I want to know is... where can I apply?

Meet me in St. Louis
I'm feeling good about all the millions of nice comments you all left on my last post. Thank you! Those are the kinds of rewards that inspire all of us bloggers to keep writing.

And speaking of St. Louis, I'm feeling good because my brother and I are planning on taking our motorcycles down there in August to attend DaveLouis, a blogger meet-up hosted by Ajooja and Dave from Blogography. Only instead of risking our lives on the freeway systems, we are instead going to follow the Mississippi River all the way from my house (which is 4 blocks away) to St. Louis on the historic Great River Road. Check out this incredible and scenic tour.

And that's why I'm feeling good today. So happy Friday everyone - I hope you're having a feel-good Friday as well!

I feel good, I knew that I would now
I feel good, I knew that I would now
So good... So good... I got you!

Feel good about going to


Heather said...

Huh. You and I are definitely not in the same place today!

Have a beer for me tonight. The OB tends to frown upon me drinking right now.

Anette said...

Isn't that the best feeling ever!? Enjoy your lovely friday!

Alice said...

Now I'm thinking of getting my husband some Axe and writing about it.

Ed said...

As long as you're not one of those "Shiny Happy People" then I'm ok...

Gen said...

That trip along the river sounds incredible! Have fun! Stay safe. :-)

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

heather - No doubt. But if you didn't live so far away, I'd scoff at your excuse and demand you come out anyway. ;-)

anette - Thanks, I will!

alice - I don't recommend it. Nothing is worth being poisoned by that smell.

ve - No worries... definitely not that.

groovy mom - I've ridden most of the Mississippi here in MN, but I've heard the road is gorgeous the whole way.

Jake Titus said...

Luckity Schmuckity!!! I'd so love to be at Davelouis!

yoo hoo said...

Ya know, a little notice would have been good. We like going out to hear a good band too, but we already have plans tonight, dang it!

Memarie Lane said...

Tell your peeps at Graco to send me some of their new stuff. K?

Ed (zoesdad) said...

That sounds like one of the best trips ever! I'd rather travel in a convertible than on a donor cycle but it really sounds fun.

Makes a mother happy, when her kids are happy!!! Got a question for you---what does Charli get in return for you getting to have such a wonderful trip?

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

jake - Me too. I've missed every other event so far so it would be fun to make this one.

carla - Cute. But thanks for humoring me ;-)

marie - As a matter of fact I actually am going to receive "a small prize." I'm not exactly in their demographic so I can't imagine what they'll send me. But I do love surprises!

ed - That's why I like the backroads. It takes a little longer but it's a lot less dangerous and way more relaxing.

mom - I still have some uncashed kitchen floor credits I plan on using.

Maureen said...

Cool! Can I join you? It'll only take me 8 hours to drive ... down ... there.

Oh crap. It's nearly 5. I guess I won't make it after all.

Well, have fun anyway!!

Dan said...

I've been to madison!

Sorry, just saw it on the map and didn't realise I'd been so close to you (relatively speaking)

I wish I could hear the music. I enjoy your blog. Such charm, such wit, you and James, happy to be alive.

Dave2 said...

Geez... that's such an enticing-looking ride that I may just have to hop on my motorcycle and join you! See you in St. Louis!

Unknown said...

Wish I didn't have to work.
I love St. Louis. Stayed at the Adams mark in 06 for a convention. I'll bet the carpet was still the sae fro when you were there.

Jeff and Charli Lee said...

maureen - We'll be playing a few hours farther north on my birthday in July. I'll hook you up with a couple of guys who always come down from Winnipeg for that event. You can ride with them ;-)

dan - I didn't know you then... but I would have definitely joined you if I had. We need to see the House on the Rock someday so the next time you're in Madison let me know.

anon - Thanks! Yes me and James were feeling good this morning. And actually you can hear my music. Just click the Music category in My Labels in the sidebar. I has live video of our band and other original material you can download.

dave2 - Too bad it would take you a week to get here first. That would be a long-ass ride - literally.

gette - Boy, it's been a long time since I've been in the ol Adam's Mark. I'll have to make sure I stop in and check it out again.

Windyridge said...

Would love to see ya but heck you are just way to far away.
Enjoy! It must be a lot of fun playing for the home crowd.

It might be a good time to ask if anyone has tent space, near the Mississippi River Road. I know you want to be near your bikes. That trip should make a great blog!

Maureen said...

Cool! Do I have to tell hubby?

I can say it's a business meeting...


Seals said...

Hope you have a safe trip. Look forward to seeing you.

So, your wife isn't coming back to her hometown?

Roger Miller said...

It is good to feel good. Plus the sun is shining, so I can't complain - until I get home to the kitchen floor at least. :)

Whit said...

Wow, that bike ride would be awesome!
