Welcome to

My oldest affectionately (I hope!!) named me that, and I figured it was only appropriate - for both me...and this blog ;o)

Our New BFF...

Maybe you've heard of him...

On the way home from the baseball game last night, Garrett took control of the radio (a rare twist since it's normally Kaylee's domain) and landed on "Faction," a punk-ish channel on Sirius. Tony Hawk was doing a call-in show, and Garrett, being the extrovert that he is, decided to call. He actually got through!! The convo went something like this:

DJ: Thanks for calling, what's your name?
Garrett: Garrett
DJ: What's that?
Garrett: Garrett

(This actually went on several times...guess it's the southern accent LOL)

DJ: What? Can you spell it?
Garrett: G A R R E T T
DJ: Oooohhh, Garrett. Okay What do you want to ask Tony?
Garrett: I just wanna tell him he's awesome.
DJ: But, what's your question?
Garrett: Nothing...just telling him that he's awesome.
DJ: You gotta better chance of talking to him if you have a question...
Garrett: Okay (thinking quickly), where does he get his boards.
DJ: Hang on...where are you calling from?
Garrett: NC

Screams from the kids (okay, actually all of us ;o)...OMG!!

Tony Hawk: Hi - gotta question for me?
Garrett: Where do you get your boards?
Tony Hawk: Birdhouse
Garrett: Um, okay...I should go to a website or something?
Lana: (interrupting) OMIGOISH!! TONY HAWK!!
Tony Hawk: (Kinda laughing) Yeah, you can go to the website...or a skateshop.
Garrett: Cool, thanks.
Tony Hawk: Thanks for calling.
Kaylee and Lana: NO WAY!! GARRETT JUST TALKED TO TONY HAWK!! (followed by screeching screams)

How cool is that...aside from the fact that Birdhouse is Tony Hawk's own company, and we probably should've known that's the boards he uses LOL.

Tony Hawk is awesome and that is so cool that you were able to speak with him. It's funny how starstruck we get, isn't it! Way to go Garrett for thinking of that question. I think I would have drawn a blank.

Peace - Rene
