  3. Where is the video from? Danny wore a similar, if not identical, outfit in Roseburg. And for that matter, he had a similar intro to “Rise.” But I can tell from the stage, audience configuration, and background that that is not Roseburg.

  4. Posted a brief comment on the concert thread at MJs. I do fully intend to do a recap, but too busy this weekend. So don’t want tto say too much here.

  5. Ellen,
    I posted the twitter link to instagram above wondering if it might be the location you asked about for the video above. Same clothes, but Danny might wear the same clothes each time– like a work uniform. I think I saw the boy with red hair in both videos, but I’m not sure.

  6. Danny has been wearing the same style of “Navigator” shirts since early July. It must be his summer look? Maybe it is quick dry? πŸ™‚

    He has light brown and black.

    No announcement accompanied #Rockies RHP Chad Bettis’ walk from the bullpen to the dugout. Just Danny Gokey, “The Comeback”‘

  8. I don’t follow baseball, is that a major league team? Not a ton of people there

    But nice for The Comeback to be featured. Maybe some other sports types will see it and get the idea to use it more in that vein …

  9. I’m not sure how to say it.. “Instagram Post.” Danny posted something that I’m 100% behind. Thank you for your bravery, Danny. You are not alone. β™₯

  10. Hey Cindy, I know Danny has a good heart and is 100% behind peaceful acts of protest.

    I will mostly stay out the political fray…. I will just say that the original planners of the Unite the Right horrify me for the depth of their hate for those that are not like them. Trying to counter their message is important. Doing so in a peaceful manner is very challenging in the face of the flags, slogans, and the intensity of the emotions.

    My heart goes out to the families of Heather Heyer and the police officers lost in the helicopter crashe — and all those injured.

  11. I don’t think MJ ever posted Danny’s KLove Comeback video. Maybe because she had already posted the one from Harry’s show? Both were good, but the last one was better. πŸ™‚

  13. When I was a kid, I pretended I was a puppy (just one time) to see if I could lap water out of a bowl. I could.
    I also remember when I was a baby being proud that I could put my big toe in my mouth. I don’t know why I was proud of that. I didn’t even know the words then. It is just a feeling I remember.

  14. When I was a kid, I pretended to make a house in between trees, by sweeping the dirt with a branch, that had a cluster of pine needles attached, that I used as a broom.
    Can’t remember when I was a baby, but remember how proud I was walking to Kindergarten by myself. Well, almost. An older girl would hold my hand. πŸ™‚

    My story isn’t as creative a yours, Lurker. πŸ™‚

    I did this too, making walls (for rooms and doors) by sweeping pine needles into lines. πŸ™‚

  16. Ellen, Yahoo had a photo of the fire burning in Oregon. It’s so large! So sad. All that beauty. All the animals. Hope you’re not close..

  17. Cindy, the fire actually is relatively close to where I live. I don’t think we are threatened directly by the fire, but (as I’m sure you are aware), it is affecting the air quality.

  18. Interesting conversation that Lurker has started! I remember being in my parents’ bedroom, and my parents were in the kitchen. My diaper was wet, and I screamed bloody murder. I hated being in a wet diaper, and I was toilet-trained at an early age. Of course, in those days, people used cloth diapers, so babies could really feel the wetness. I read an article suggesting that it is more difficult to toilet-train children today, because the disposable diapers wick away wetness so efficiently that children have less incentive to learn to use the toilet.

  19. ” I didn’t even know the words then. It is just a feeling I remember.”

    I so understand, Lurker. I have a handful of memories from when I was very young, and it is like you say. I didn’t even have the vocabulary to describe the experience back then, but I remember the outlines of the experience and how I felt (even though I didn’t have the words).

  20. Last trip down memory lane . . .

    I remember when I started kindergarten at age 4, my mother bought me some new dresses to wear to school. (Store-bought clothes that weren’t hand-me-downs or sewn by my grandmother were a novelty.) Anyway, one of the dresses was forest green and it had two big buttons on either side of the chest area. I remember playing with the buttons and pretending they were the knobs of a radio.

    As for playing pretend — which should be every child’s favorite game! — we had a chimney next to the front porch and it was made of different colored stones. I used to play “grocery store” with a neighbor. The purple stone was the salami!

  21. Oh yes, Ellen. The smoke from fires seem to slowly come up to our elevation and settle into the valley.

    Wow, I’m impressed with Lurker and Ellen. I have no memories before 4 or 5. I wonder what that says about me. :/

  22. That is a really nice article and promo for the Storyteller Conference/Scholarship fundraiser.

    Quite a compliment that Danny is following previous headliners, Big Daddy Weave and Steven Curtis Chapman.

  24. Danny mentioned the due date of the baby at the Roseburg concert, but I don’t remember exactly what he said. I remember it was too late in the pregnancy for Leyicet to travel. And I think the due date is coming up fairly soon.

  25. Okay, Cindy3, I was wrong. The fire near where I live isn’t an immediate threat. I think it may be partially contained. But the fire near Sisters in central Oregon is threatening homes. That fire also forced the closure of one of the mountain passes, so there is only one open that connects western Oregon with central Oregon. All I can say is, the out-of-town visitors (and everyone else) need to be super-careful about not starting a fire. That is especially true for those in central Oregon, because there are limited avenues for evacuation.

    There is some concern that the smoke from the many fires may obscure the eclipse viewing in central Oregon. But aside from that possible problem, right now the weather predictions are showing Oregon and Tennessee as having the best eclipse-viewing weather, in terms of cloud cover/clear skies. I live in the path of totality, so I don’t need to travel anywhere. There are some tall trees nearby, so I may scope out the neighborhood for the best viewing spot. (We’ve been told that those who can work from home via VPN on Monday should do so, to help ease traffic congestion.)

  26. Ellen B. I’m pretty sure Danny and Leyicet’s baby is due September 8th but we all know that those little ones come whenever they want!! So happy for all of them!!πŸ’™πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸΌπŸ’™

  27. That is so sad, Ellen. Such devastation. We say the same thing about visitors and locals. To be careful. The worst of our fire season is coming up with the winds changing direction. We have only three main roads off the mountain. I hope containment comes soon for you.

    We’re suppose to have 70% eclipse. We can’t find glasses, so I will have to use the pin-hole way.

    I thought Danny and Leyicet’s baby is due the beginning of September, too. Little Danny’s first day of school photo with his father was so precious. He’s such a handsome little boy. Victoria couldn’t have looked more adorable in her dancing video.

    I need your “tranquil” dream, Lurker. I am not patient, and I don’t adapt to change very well. 😦

  28. Angelsnell, I am sure you are right! I remember when Danny first started talking about why Leyicet couldn’t be there, I thought he was going to say that she was due any day. But then he said her actual due date, and it was about a month out (but too close in time to travel).

  29. I wish I’d known in advance that you were having trouble getting a pair of eclipse glasses, Cindy3. I could have mailed you a pair. At least as of yesterday, a local store still had them, although many stores are running out. I bought a pair way back, then my ophthalmologist’s office gave me two pairs for free. So I have three pairs! Eye doctors are really worried people will look at the sun without eye protection (or with the wrong kind). A friend from the Folsom area of CA found out that her glasses weren’t certified — I guess there are a lot of fake eclipse glasses on the market. But she did find a pair of the right kind. She has family here in OR, so she is in town for the event.

  30. Ellen B. I remember the date as its the day before my oldest daughter’s 26th birthday…fall is such a beautiful time to have a baby….unfortunately you have to go through the whole summer pregnant just to get there!! Can’t wait to see if it’s a boy or girl!!!

  31. And Cindy3, I do pray for folks in CA, and really everywhere in the country where there is a fire season, like OR, WA, MN. Not sure about Wyoming, Idaho and the Dakotas?

  32. Angelsnell, I think summer can be pretty grueling for a pregnant woman, if she lives in a part of the country where summer temps are hot (especially if it is humid, too). Luckily it is not generally humid in the summer in OR, but wow, some of the temps we’ve had this year — 107! 112! — belong in the southwest, thank you kindly, not here in the Pacific Northwest.

  33. Ellen B. Holy hot!! 107-112?? Unbelievable!! I live in upstate NY and 95 is hot for us!! Haven’t had much of a hot summer this year but no complaints here!! Looking forward to πŸ‚πŸπŸ‚

  34. Yes, Angelsnell, and we are at the 45th parallel! Trust me, NORMALLY we don’t see temps like that. Summer in OR is usually very pleasant — 70s, 80s, and some 90s, but with no humidity.

    Does it get humid in the summer in upstate N.Y.? I am originally from PA, and (growing up at least) the temps weren’t that bad, but it could get awfully humid.

  35. Yes Ellen B. it does get humid but not unless it gets above 80-85. Funny you should say ur from PA because that’s my next stop for the Rise Out Of The Dark Tour in Philly in 82 days….but who’s counting?? (Hint hint — me!!!!)
