Well, this has been on repeat on in my ear all day.
I’d heard rumblings about Madisen Ward and the Momma Bear, a mother and son duo from Missouri, and about two weeks ago heard a live version of one of their songs and made a note to check them out.
Then today Madisen Ward and The Momma Bear was added to the (already stellar) Forecastle Festival.
I tell my dad he’s my hero. I say this often. And boy have I put that man through some stress. I’ve put him through enough stress that he should be retired, sitting on a beach without a care in the world.
But not my dad.
Instead, he’s forgoing retirement to run for School Board. He’s running because education is his passion and he needs our support.
If the day ever comes that my DNA is replicated I could only hope to be the father to them as he was to me.
Well, we’ve officially jumped the shark on this one, but it’s for a good cause, so I digress.
At any rate, there was a surprisingly large turnout among the three candidates. Supporters were pretty even between the parties. Will this be an indicator of the election results come November? We’ll see….
