6/2/06 – personal photos including Levon Helm

Friday, June 02, 2006


Here are the pictures that I promised from the weekend at Levon Helm’s place. Levon was the drummer in the group The Band. The Jazz Band that my son plays in invaded Levon’s recording studio to play, by Levon’s invitation.


Christopher is the one playing sax in the black suit. He plays tenor sax. This is the Jazz Band, an after-school club.


Levon Helm came in to meet the band. Christopher is to his left in the black suit, and the conductor, Mr. Murphy is to the right of Levon.


This is the outside of Levon’s studio, and people were waiting because he was going to walk through the crowd with a meet and greet.


I went up to him to thank him for allowing our children to play in his studio. He let Jim take a picture of me with him.


Here is a beautiful red maple that is invading the front of our house.


This year there is an invasion of caterpillars in our area. Further north by a friend’s house the invasion became more severe.


Reminded me of the old science fiction movie, Squirm.


Katherine and  Christopher on a beach in Long Island. They went out with their dad to check on the bungalo. My other son chose to stay home. The water was cold, and Katherine had a goal of sitting on the boulder.

Christopher picked up a skate on a rock. We found out that sometimes fishermen punch out circles from the skate and pawn them off as scallops. But this is the top of the skate.



There is the bottom of the skate, where it’s mouth is. Looks like some bizzare sci-fi creature invading our planet.

We thought we had seen everything when a woman came up to the Boy Scout yard sale with a goose sitting next to her. On closer inspection we found out that it was stuffed, but it sure looked real and I am certain she drew the attention of many people as she drove by.


Hope you enjoyed the pictures of a few of the recent invasions.



About Heather Marsten

Welcome to Heather's Blog. I'm looking forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. I just moved about nine years of material over from another blog site, Xanga, who may close down mid-July. At first I was disappointed to make the move because I had a lifetime membership at Xanga and had to spend weeks transferring posts. But now I'm thrilled. Already I've met new bloggers and read many new websites. Blogging is a wonderful way to expand my horizons and garner new ideas. I'm a happily married mom of three young adults. My husband and I are proud to watch our children grow and venture out into the world. My daughter is still in college but my two sons have graduated. One has a job and the other just graduated and is in the process of finding a job in his field, physics. Anyone know of any jobs out there? I'm proud of our children and love watching them grow and mature. They've become fine, compassionate, and loving people. Empty nest? Nah, I'm too busy to let an empty nest bother me. Not enough hours in the day. My husband and I enjoy quiet time together and I have many interests to pursue - one of which is blogging :D I am a born-again believer and love God. As you read this blog, you will discover that Bible studies thrill me. There is so much wisdom contained between the covers of the Bible and I am fortunate to sit under the teachings of a remarkable pastor, Pastor Don Moore. Members of our church (Living Word Chapel in West Hurley, New York) are encouraged to teach and there are visiting pastors who stop by our church, I also study the Bible on my own and love sharing what I learn. One other passion is writing. My current work in process is a memoir. A scene from my memoir was published in a book called: Heavenly Company: Entertaining Angels Unaware - an anthology of angelic encounters compiled by Cecil Murphy. I'm hoping my memoir will encourage other survivors of abuse. I grew up in a home filled with abuse, including incest. For most of my life I was searching for something that would fill the void of not being loved by my parents. I tried many ways to find that love -- therapy, relationships, occult studies, and keeping my life so filled I had no way to think about my past. It was only when I discovered God that I was able to put the pieces of my life back together and walk forward in a joyous life. My nickname - wondering has changed from wondering where the heck God was in my life, to wondering what incredible adventure is going to happen next. I hope you enjoy my site. Please say hi, share some thoughts, and ask questions. I look forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. Have a blessed day. Heather
