Sammy Saturday: on amps and birthmoms

August 6, 2011

Trying out amps at the store and lost in thought/ Mama C and the Boys

Me: Why do you like to play the bass with an amp?*

Sam: Because it is really fun when you crank it up all the way to 100.

Me: What do you think about when you play music?

Sam: I get in my mode. I am thinking about going to play the bass loud. I’m good at music  not speaking about it.

Me: Sam, what is one thing you are wondering about our trip West in two weeks?

Sam: I am wondering if Tea is going to like me or not.

Me: What do you think the answer is to that?

Sam: Yes.

Me: Why?

Sam: Because she has always loved me.


Two weeks to go. And we’re only $400.00 from our goal, which I am certain we’re going to reach. We were buying snacks for our carry on bags today. Thank you to the most recent contribution of $25.00 from Ms. C. C. of Maine. Feeling tremendous support and confidence from all of you! I had a dream that I woke to a contribution from Sandra Bullock for $10,000. The universe clearly has big plans for us! THANK YOU SANDRA and all!

* For being so big and brave in the world, Sam earned his first amp. It’s a 40 watt machine I gather. And was fabricated some time in 1970 near as I can tell. It’s plenty loud for us.

    Thanks so much Mama–for your sweet encouragement and facebook love too. The video from his birth mom arrived today and that really seemed to help us land a little more!

    Sammy is going to be such an amazing man (as you are an awesome woman)! I can’t wait to say I read his Mommy’s blog! Sending you lots of positivity in meeting your goal!
