We've Got Soul

thanks to spotify we've been listening to hours of singles from the stax/volt collection circa 1959-1968 here at homer's. i'm convinced that you can't overdose on old memphis soul. the sounds of otis redding, booker t and the mg's, carla thomas, and many others are playing as i type this. we've got soul, yes we do... we've got soul, how about you?

Between Christmas and New Years

i got to work with kristen yesterday. it was a treat because she is on christmas break from UMKC. when i found her lunchbox the other day, i had to get a pic. it reminded me of my old 70s lunchbox.

Cold & Flu Season

our apologies for the lack of posts on the blog. the cold and flu hit the metro hard this winter. but it looks like everyone is on the mend. wash your hands, take your vitamins, drink lots of tea at homer's.

Abstract Love

Look Like a Celeb @ Homer's
