First image of our shopping street

I been busy a lot the last few weeks and there is a lot left to do.
But here is the first picture of the shops we made on our island.

the Concert

Saturday dad took Tim and me to a concert. It was a special concert because my brother Myles is in the band that did a life performing. It was all new for us to see him there as background vocal and dancer. And at the end of the concert, he did a duet with the lead singer. He must being nervous because his voice was not loud. But he did great.
I am proud of you Myles.

The song they sing was
"Knockin' on Heaven's Door".
I not have record the song but what you hear on the playlist is performed by Avril Lavigne.

While dad was just standing there, stunning looking at Myles, Tim and I went dancing.
Let me show you how my love was going out of his head.

"Knockin' on Heaven's Door" is a song written and performed by Bob Dylan for the soundtrack of the 1973 Western film Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. The song describes the feelings and impressions of a dying deputy, who notices that it is getting dark around him as he is knocking on heaven's door. He realizes that he will never use his badge or his guns anymore.
The concert was at WOODSTOCK MUSIC FESTIVAL and the leadsinger said that they be there again next week.

Cats in the Cradle

My sl Dad (Echo Douglas) is a busy man in real and at Second Life.
Yesterday he told me, like he always does, that he missed me and just before he left he told me about this song. I have to admit that I also have a busy sl life. It must be our genes.
I love you, Dad. I hope there will be a time that we can spend more time together.Cats in the Cradle

My child arrived just the other day;
Came to the world in the usually way
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay.
He learned to walk while I was away.
He was talkin' 'fore I knew it.
And as he grew he said,
"I'm gonna be like you, Dad.
You know I'm gonna be like you."

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little boy blue and the man on the moon.
"When you comin' home?"
"Son, I don't know when.
We'll get together then.
You know we'll have a good time then."

Well, my son turned ten just the other day.
He said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad. Come on, let's play.
Could you teach me to throw?" I said, "Not today.
I got a lot to do." He said, "That's okay."
And he walked away and he smiled and he said,
"You know,
I'm gonna be like him, yeah.
You know I'm gonna be like him."


Well, he came from college just the other day,
So much like a man I just had to say,
"I'm proud of you. Could you sit for a while?"
He shook his head and he said with a smile,
"What I'd really like, Dad is to borrow the car keys.
See you later. Can I have them please?"

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little boy blue and the man on the moon.
"When you comin home, Son?"
"I don't know when.
We'll get together then.
You know we'll have a good time then."

I've long since retired, my son's moved away.
I called him up just the other day.
"I'd like to see you, if you dont mind."
He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I could find the time.
You see my new job's a hassle and the kids have the flu,
But it's sure nice talkin' to you, Dad.
It's been sure nice talkin' to you."

And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me,
He'd grown up just like me.
My boy was just like me.
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
