dogs in the neighborhood

When we go out for walks in the evenings, we are seeing so many dogs in the neighborhood. They're all pet dogs of course, and all dogs in our community need to be on a leash at all times. There is even a new pet accessories store opening up soon, the sign is up and they're finishing up last minute stuff inside. Apparently, one of the biggest sellers these days is the gps pet locator, which I'm sure is handy if you leave your dog open to run around. Here there are so many families with little kids, that it's just not safe, especially when some of the dogs are so large and come out with mesh muzzles. They look scary to me.

Sedona's on our list

I simply love to travel and this has been a really great year for it. Now, it's time to start planning for next year and it's got to be the South Western states of the US, especially Arizona, which I have heard so much about but never had the opportunity to visit. Sedona is the place I have set my sights on, for its picturesque beauty, amazing colors and a totally different and new experience. On doing some research, I found a place called Southwest Inn, which seems like the place to stay. The Southwest Inn at Sedona, combination bed and breakfast / Small luxury hotel just the perfect mix of luxury meets privacy and uniqueness. As a testament to its popularity, it has been voted as "the best place to stay in Sedona" by readers of "Sedona Scene" for three years running.

a musical weekend

Where did the weekend go? It's already Tuesday and I still haven't figured out how the weekend went by so fast. It was a good and hectic weekend, the best ones always go by so fast don't they! We met with friends and family and the best part of it was the musical performance we went to by a local group. Playing just the simplest of instruments, like one of the best fender t bucket guitars, the music shone, simply shone out into the night. Now this isn't just any normal guitar, it's one of the best with its single cutaway dreadnought design and laminated maple top and mahogany sides. With its authentic motif, it's definitely a beauty. With die cast machine heads, and solid rosewood bridge, the guitar has Fishman electronics, so you can just pick it up and plug it in to make some memorable music.

guitars guitars guitars

Guitars are the flavor of the month here. The little one loves playing with them so much that I'm seriously considering getting her a guitar cake for her birthday! On a more serious note, there is a new musicians supply store opening up nearby, the final touches seem to be getting put, and I'm so excited about it. I hope they will offer lessons and maybe start something fun like a musical evening for the neighborhood. I would like to know how one can find used guitars, good ones that will tune up and sound deep and beautiful. With their popularity, not many good used guitars seem to be easily available, so it's really important to buy from a trusted source. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll be strumming away soon!
