Daddy don't sing!, gesture and wild honey

- I love the Avett Brothers and in this video, Scott Avett tries to sing "Just a Closer Walk (With Thee)" with charming results. So funny. :)

- They must be the nicest band in the world. There was a concert two weeks ago in Atlanta at a venue that was apparently over sold, disappointing a lot of fans who couldn't get in. So they have a letter on their website offering them free admission to an October concert in nearby Tennessee. Lovely.

- My friend Whitney posted the video above on facebook. She has a wonderful food blog now, Wild Honey, and I love her post about making a giant birthday cookie for her wee niece. You can check it out here.

What a cute video - especially his daughter!!

And now...I'm off to check out more of their music, too - thank YOU!!

LL Cool Joe said...

Wow I just couldn't watch that video! His voice was so painful to my ears!

Love the name Whitney! Off to check out her blog. :)

Lance -

So funny - I agree. I'm so glad you are checking them out!

Joe -

I guess his daughter feels the same way. :)

Ha! Maybe she's Wiccan?

I was raised in the church, and I still love the music. Sometimes I sing getting out of the bathtub, and Bosco will bark at me. (Maybe HE is Wiccan!) and "How Great Thou Art" turns into How Loud You Bark! I couldn't make this stuff up, Lynn. ;-)

"Daddy, close it." So cute. His voice is very moving to me. Always liked that hymn a lot. It was a favorite of my grandmother.

Cookies, did someone say cookie -- and a giant one at that??!! Sounds good.

Hope you're having a peaceful day filled with lots of smiles.

This was GREAT!!! That's not easy for a daddy to take, especially one in a band. Still, I kind of agree with his daughter. Thanks for sharing this!.

This really made me smile today. And I needed it. Thanks.

FB -

You have given me my lol of the day - that is funny! :)

Jannie -

I am having a peaceful day with lots of smiles. :) Thanks for giving me another.


Sara -

I thought he had a sort of long-suffering look. I'm thinking this has happened before. :)

happygirl -

Then my job is done! That's all I want out of this blog - to make people smile...

Riot Kitty said...

Love that pic! I do often smile when reading your blog. Mission accomplished ;)

Sparkling Red said...

Kids are so funny. They have their own motivations and agendas that make so much sense to them but none at all to anyone else sometimes. I love how he responds to her, not getting upset, but not letting her control the situation either.

That video is so cute!

G. B. Miller said...

Now that was funny. Thanks for the evening chuckle.

Lynn said...

Riot Kitty -

Ah - that's what I want. Thank you, friend.

Sparkling Red -

Yes - he has a patient air about him. I imagine he has been through that before. :)

Mama Zen -

I'm glad you liked it.

G -

Glad I could facilitate a chuckle. :)

Whitney said...

Thanks for the shout-out, Lynn! I think that video is so charming. I love the Avett Brothers and it's fun to see a bit of real life for one of them.

Lynn said...

Hey Whit -

Yes - I loved that video and it came in handy that day because I didn't have a photo. :)

Snaggle Tooth said...

I'll have to check out the video next week, sounds like a great band! How nice of them- Think I've gone to wild honey a few times already, always worth the trip!

Lynn said...

Snaggle -

I'm glad you've checked out Whitney's blog - always a lovely time.
