Under the (Music) Radar

I performed more in May than I have all year, so I’m taking a break until fall. The #DreamTeam will still host #GardenCityJazz and Pop-Up Augusta events, and we’ll still do the #bookmusicgigs thing. But KG & THE SUNSHINE BAND (aka KG & Friends) is gonna chill for a sec, so that KG can explore some new & different-err… options. What ARE those options exactly? Glad you asked. They are including, but not limited to the following… • Spending time with family • Homeschooling @SayWhatScooter • Launching an exploratory committee (for my campaign for political office) • Taking a...

The Beautiful and the Messy

One four-year-old, two scoops of dark chocolate ice cream. In a cone. It got pretty messy! We were finishing up a day at Lake Oconee and about to head home to Augusta, so I was rather unruffled by the mess. Just before our ice cream on the porch, Julia Reynolds had face-planted on the sidewalk “racing” us to the ice cream shop. It broke my heart to see her fall and get hurt, skinning her knees, elbows, and a hip.  Some cold water, an ice pack, Band-Aids and hugs and kisses and Julia Reynolds was good to go. Boo-boos...

This is only a portion of his brilliance so maybe there will be more later. All can be found at his alter ego’s twitter page @saywhatscooter. 24 January 2018 One night. Mommy: Ok Scoot, time for your bath. 10 minutes later. @SayWhatScooter: Mom, guess what? Georgia gave me a bath so now I only have to wash my other parts. 11 September 2017 One Friday morning on the way to school. @SayWhatScooter: Hey...

A Hairy Situation

By Paige Tucker PHOTO: Sophia Bush, age 5 It’s a rite of passage for many children, cutting their own hair! It all too often happens before something important like, oh you know, family pictures or a portrait sitting. I have seen pictures and received several texts over the years of “new haircuts” that my friend’s children have given themselves. The best is when it’s a group text and several friends weigh in with a hair horror of their own. The trims are usually memorable and a few of them have made me laugh out loud, with the unintended bangs, choppy...

Cousins Book Club

By Karen Gordon VERY TIME @SayWhatScooter spends time with his cousin Jamil, they come up with a new “thing.” First, there was the boiled peanuts which they sold for a spell at the Saturday Market. Next, was a brief stint with slime. #CousinsPeanutsAndSlime has an interesting ring to it (not to be confused with Jones BBQ and Foot Massage). Another idea was their customized spa experience, complete with soothing music and lighting, courtesy of Alexa. Most recently, they’ve talked about starting their own book club so I’m putting together a starter kit, of sorts. I’ve been looking for books  they...
