An Ode to John Fogerty


dear emily,

some day when your crew grows older and comes home for happy weeks
at a time, this is what your kitchen will enjoy.    max is on the right, hidden
beneath a baseball cap.   they saved the best part for the last.

he's my huckleberry!

love,
lea

Oh I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this! They are REALLY good. How i would love if my kids could do this but alas they take after their parents! Enjoy your day!

Now I have that tune dancing in my head.

Meg said...

Yeehaw!! That was great! We're all sitting here tapping our feet. I hope my boys make music like that someday. :D

Aubrey said...

Everything about that video - from the twang of the banjo to the Oklahoma sunshine streaming in through your kitchen window - made my heart glad. Way to go, Maxim! And thank you for posting, Lea!

Sonja said...

Hats off to Huck! Loved it!

Vee said...

That was great! Bet they can sing at your table anytime...I did wait until the end! Loved the harmonica playing, too. Very talented guys...the baseball capped one belongs to you?

vee: yes, mine is wearing the cap.

Farm Girl said...

I loved it all it was fantastic.

Great tribute to one of my favorites, John Fogerty. sang along in front of my PC, while the daughter enjoyed the music in our kitchen.
CCR rules.

Sandy said...

Always liked Fogerty, too. These guys are great! Your son is cute.

Cheryl said...

Now that was great fun!

Lisa said...

What a wonderful blast from the past! Your son is adorable and so talented!

I am sitting in my bed. The house is quiet. Two older ones have gone. They come back and we laugh so hard we cry. Good times.

Loved the music~

I can so imagine you enjoying having the kids around you, making merry in the kitchen even if they empty the fridge faster than you can fill it.

Tamara Swerline said...

Oh Lea! Love this, absolutely! <3 <3 <3

Oh how fun...I am showing Benjamin because I pulled out the dusty banjo the other day...what a delight!!!

Now how could I not know about cars with five boys?? LOL

What a fun musical family...they most have gotten it from their mom!

Jen said...

How absolutely entertaining and fun! I know you enjoyed the impromptu concert. And such catchy song... I'll be singing it all day! =)

Maryann said...

I loved this, like everyone else this tune is gonna stick with me all afternoon

Lana said...

Oh, Lea, this is wonderful! How talented those young men are! I grew with folks at my parents' home nearly every night singing and playing the guitar, banjo, fiddle, French harp.... and yes, sometimes spoons! This nearly makes me cry... but in a good way! :)

Auntie Cake said...

Oh, the comment you left so made me giggle! Thanks for a great start to a really dreary (weather outside) day!

Anita said...

I like that! I hope they play for you often.

And I liked the line at the end when one of them asked if he could get a group hug. :)

Thanks for your comment on my "animal" post. True feelings from my visitors are never boring.

Single and Sane said...

I loved it the first time I watched it, but I missed the ending, which is fabulous. The fun they're having is downright infectious. Love, love, love it!

A Tale of Two Cities said...

Singin' right along with them! How fun!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Lea, that was fabulous, they did a great job!

Merrybabies said...

Ilo and I just watched this and loved it! What a dream come true--I have high hopes for my littles in the music department...they are so inspired by your "littles"!

Auntie Cake said...

OOOHHHHHHHH, so wishing my kitchen could enjoy the same thing!!! Can they be persuaded by (more) free food or something??? My kitchen will enjoy motorcycle parts and more motorcycle parts(did I mention I have two bikes spending the winter months in my basement???) I would take the music every time!

Hope you and your family are all well and are enjoying a fabulous February! Don't know how I missed all your posts, but love them all. I adore this sweet spot you have carved out for all of us to enjoy here on the www. Give all those bigs boys in your kitchen a big hug and a kiss from all of us who enjoyed them so immensly!
