I need your help. I need someone to tell me how to get my music back. They gave me a place to go to, but what am I suppose to do after I get there is the question. I have never added any music, so I am a dummy in that respect. I miss having it playing while I am working on the computer. Some things I have learned by trial and error, but at times I am not that brave. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I have been a little tardy in blogging this past week and even reading. I have been busy taking care of my other half and working. I sit down in the chair and fall asleep. I think the weather has a lot to do with it. 
We had to take a picture of Baby Sister so that I could make Matt a new t-shirt with Sister on it for him to wear at the horse shows. He thought grandma needed a picture to look at while I am working on it. 

 He showed her in the halter class here a couple of weeks ago. They had 21 horses in the event so there wasn't a lot of hope for him and the smallest horse in the group, but he had fun and that is all that is important. He was very busy that weekend. For a while he was going from his pony to Cleo. It was a good thing that they have two different saddles for him to use. He got tired even if he didn't want to admit. 
He has a red shirt similar to his big brother. This past weekend he didn't get to show either Saturday or Sunday because it was 4 H or FFA
members only. The next picture is of big brother and you can tell that he is very serious when he shows. He can smile, but you don't see it to often because of the concentration.

Serious during competion
 The photographer that took his picture, MA Donaldson, said she was going to catch him yet with a smile on his face. The boys have had a pretty good show season so far. People ask where they found the horses that they show. They were just lucky with some other peoples help. I still can see Matt bouncing on Cleo's back and she just stood there.

Matt with the Judge
 I know you will see pictures of my boys.
The judge was talking with Matt on Cleo. She talked with a lot of the kids about different things.  
The show that this picture was taken in there was only 402 entries. If you placed you were lucky.  Jake made the cut in one class of 21 to be one of the top six, he didn't place, but he was the youngest one out there. It was in a senior event so you can imagine the ages. 
Matt was tired , but at least sitting still
 People thought Matt was mad when he was sitting on the barrel, he wasn't he was just tired . I was just glad to see him sitting still for a change, because normally he is full speed ahead. 
This past weekend he didn't get to show, but brother had a good two days showing. He had 4 first and 2 seconds on Saturday  showing Cleo. The placements paid money so he will be getting a check. 
On Sunday, he showed Fergie and it was an awesome day because he won a belt buckle for high point in his age group.  You can see him being presented the belt buckle and what it looks like up close. He was so excited he couldn't tell me what placements he got, but the points were there for the buckle. I was hoping for him. 
We didn't get to go because it was to hot and neither arena had any shade. We will go this weekend because they have shade and I can park the car where he can watch and I can run it if I need to.
I went to a baby shower for my great niece. She has a medical degree and is doing her residency in Minneapolis.  She has decide to go into family medicine for which I am glad because we need more family doctors. I had a good time and got to see family that I hadn't seen for awhile. We started outside and had to move it inside because of the weather, but we didn't really get anything. I hope you all have a good week.

Hi Shirley:
I was worried when I saw your blog title. I'm glad is nothing more worrisome than losing the music on your blog. I don't put music on mine (and to tell the truth, I turn my sound off so I never hear music on other blogs), so I can' help you with your dilemma.

I love seeing your photos today. Such handsome boys!

Be well, my friend.

Love seeing the pictures of your boys and their horses. That little guy and his little horse is just precious. Glad they take it so seriously. You sure are a busy one.

I'm guessing you'll have to redo the music list all over again. You'll have to take delete it off your blog. When you get to the site press the blog link at the bottom and then look at the very top of the page and click create playlist. And put it back on your blog again. That's the only thing I can think of.
Your grandsons are doing so well!

I don't know a thing about the music thing. I keep my music turned off because I find it distracting. Some blogs come on very, very loud and then I have to tone it I just leave it off. Your grandsons are handsome young chaps, aren't they? He does look very serious during the competition. Hope you had a great day- xo Diana

Hi Shirley, Love your pics of the boys and all that they enjoy in their activites. I know you are very proud of such talented grands.

I lost my music too with playlist so just last night I found a new place to add music and make a playlist. It was easy to add and if you want you can go to the link from my blog and set it all up. I like it much better then playlist because they changed everything and made it very hard to navigate around.
If you need help, let me know.

Thank you for the kind comments over the last month. You blessed me more then I can say.

Have a great day, Happy Summer,

Good morning Shirley
I too have lost my music and have wondered why. Not sure if I can figure it out but when I do I will send it to you. lol
Your pics of your grandsons are really nice. He does look worn out sitting on that barrel. My favorite is the one of him and his horse. Adorable.
