My DH


Saturday we have a party in our street. My husband is a singer and guitarplayer in a Bluesband. So on Saturday they cheer up the party. I see and hear everyday my DH playing his guitar at home. But see him playing on the street reminds me on our first meeting.

20 years ago......

He was standing on the corner from the street in the middle of the center from Haarlem, playing on a acoustic guitar songs from Bob Dylan . I was walking there and saw him. I thought Wow this the man !!!!!! What to do ? Me 20 years old. If I walk away I never see him anymore .... So I decided to start a converstation. And as you all know we have now 4 kids, a house, a dog...............

What a nice story and I bet you're awfully glad that you did what you had to do ..... 20 years ago is also when I met my DH. We've been married for 18 of those.

I love this story Lucy....every time I hear it, and seeing the street corner when I visited you, I can picture you back there (1986 with BIG HAIR! *LOL*)It was fate!

Finn said...

That's such a neat story Lucy...and I'm glad you found the courage to speak to him and get things started.

Everyone loves a rocker right? Even one who plays the blues!

Laura said...

Love the story Lucy, and I also love the blues! Lucky you having someone at home that can sing them!

Hi, Lucy ! What a nice moment I just had, visiting your blog !
I absolutely LOVE your quilt, especially "The Potluck Quilt" (just ordered the book through Amazon, but will only get it in September, according to them!), your "Purple String Star" is fantastic AND your "String Tulips" : oh, my ! They are so cute and tempting ! I love handpiecing and your are right : this is a very convenient portable project. (Is there a book where I could find the pattern ?). Finally, I can't find my words to express my admiration for your Sampler, and your "Bloemen" (die was zooo goed gedaan, proficiat !).
Your color choices are beautiful. Now, I realize that I've got "The Art of classic Quiltmaking" book on my shelve and I'm going to dig in RIGHT NOW for a good brainstorming !
Thanks for the inspiration, I will come back often !

How cool you met him playing Dylan songs, and I remember you telling me Isis is named for the Dylan song.

Did I tell you another quilty friend of mine flew over a few weeks ago from England to see the man himself perform only 40 minutes from my house! She and I met through in university in the States because we were both Dylan fans, LOL. She married a Brit, I married an Irishman, and now we are both quilters, from Maryland, USA, now in Europe...who love to listen to Dylan songs! A Simple Twist of Fate :)

Patty said...

I am sure you are glad you started up that conversation ! What a handsome man he is.
Keeping your Dad in my prayers Lucy. This weekend I will light a candle for his health.

Way to make the first move, Lucy!

Is your son following his Dad's musical talents?
