Wiesbaden Day...The Farm...Homeward Bound

BILL BLOG

Thursday April 25, 2024


Thursday morning and we’re saying goodbye to Wiesbaden, Germany.

 

YESTERDAY

On our last full day here our daughter Heather took us into Wiesbaden for breakfast at garden-flower kind of place.



 

A big store with lots of flowers and gardening stuff and more.

 

For breakfast we took a long escalator up to the second floor where the bright and airy restaurant sat. Might be the best scrambled eggs I’ve had anywhere in a long time. And the coffee over here has been “off the hook” great everywhere we’ve sipped some. Truly a great final German breakfast here with our daughter while her husband was off flying for the day again.


 

 

After breakfast, on the way home, we stopped at a Farmer’s Market. A real farmers market that grows and stocks food almost entirely from the large farm it’s attached to.



 

The fruit and veggie section was impressive.



 

And you could pick from a variety of eggs laid by the various farm hens on the property.



 

And I’m not sure about the wine, but there was a large part of it stored with German wine. Didn’t hear if they have their own winery or if it comes from somewhere local.



 

The day was sunny as if to give us a nice send off from this wonderful two and a half weeks we’ve had here.


 

 

TODAY

It’s a long flight home today. We’re packed, and we surely hate saying goodbye to our kids. We just could not have had a better time. We made a lot of memories here we will never forget.

 

Have a great Thursday.

A Writing Session...A Recording Session...New Shows

BILL BLOG Friday April 5, 2024   Friday morning and a weekend is upon us. Still cool here in Nashville with a high of just 54 today but warming back up into the mid 70’s in a couple of days.   YESTERDAY It was a really busy Wednesday that started with writing a new song with Caroline Owens at my publishing company. Something up-tempo and commercial that was very fun to write. You’re going to be hearing more and more about Caroline who’s young and gifted. Plays great guitar…and piano…and sings a bit like Alison Krauss and Dolly Parton if you will.     But the big news from yesterday was after we finished writing and I left my publishing company and our record label signed her as both an artist and a writer. So welcome to our little musical family Caroline!   A great decision by the label for sure.     INTO THE STUDIO I had to fly out of the publishing and make a 45 minute trip to a recording studio where Freedom Sings USA was recording the latest so

Nice Words...Selfies...Studio Today

BILL BLOG Thursday April 4, 2024 Thursday morning be here and it’s most surely cooler. A high of just 50 today.   YESTERDAY I polished up not one but two songs with Irene Kelly yesterday at my publishing company. She had gone through her songs that we have written together and thought we might be able to make those two songs stronger. And we did…she was right. That’s part of the craft sometimes. Going back and listening again and then making some time a make a good song better. Time well spent.   Irene and her two daughters sometimes do shows together that features great HARMONY. In fact, the three of them are headed to France at the end of the month to do some songs there. Here oldest daughter speaks fluent French, and sometimes performs shows singing songs in that language so I’m sure they are going to have a wonderful and fun time in France amazing some of the folks over there.     KIND WORDS Yesterday Troy Engle’s new song “ Never Too Lost ”

Tornado Month...Music In The Mail...Pearl

BILL BLOG Tuesday April 2, 2024   And a happy Tuesday morning to you. All eyes on the weather here in Nashville today. Storms, hail, and the weather folks are looking out for tornadoes.   A bunch of our schools decided to close because of that. 72 high today, but then that weather moves through and tomorrow’s high is only going to be 54. Fingers crossed that this storm doesn’t get crazy on us. It’s April…part of the deal anymore in middle Tennessee it seems.   YESTERDAY I had a free day to do that catching up thing. Got a few things struck off that list. We’re already doing that pre-packing thing for our trip a week from today to see our daughter and her husband over in Germany that we’re really starting to look forward to. Now if we only could find a Star Trek machine to beamed there in minutes instead of a LOT of hours flying…that would be great. But we’re certainly looking forward to seeing scenery with our kids like this.   MUSIC IN THE MAIL I did ge
