Good morning! 10:58 and 68 degrees are our current stats.
It's that time of year again. Time to break out the thermal dermis aka Long Johns, and the extra blankets. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night freezing, and couldn't get back to sleep. It was probably quite a show. Tonight I've got those extra layers handy if I need them.
Getting older is a bitch. Even without the chronic stuff many seniors come down with, you still have days where you just don't feel quite right. Days when you're just plain old. But along the way, you learn how to take care of yourself.
Music news. Well I had two engagements for this past week but neither of them worked out. The first one would've involved sitting around for more than an hour, so I'm taking a raincheck. With the second one, there was never any clear communication. It was for a friend from Robbie's days, one of the folks I'd play Jeopardy with before my gigs there. I didn't hear back, so I thought I must've pissed him off.
Fortunately that was not the case. I've been nursing a toothache since Thursday and wasn't in the greatest shape, so I wasn't able to make it. My friend was very understanding. About getting older, he said "more than you know". So I was greatly relieved. And there's always a next time, however far down the road..
In other music news, the YouTube page is still growing as far as subscribers. Up to 178 at the moment. I have a lot of fun with the page, and have a few more things to add. It's also cool hearing from some of these people out there.
Last but not least, I have a new album that just released today. It's called Isosceles Macaroni, and as the title might suggest, is some of my wackier stuff. The title is from a dream I had back in 1979 or so.
I was 24-25 years old. In the dream, I'm having dinner at Ralph Nader's house. As dinner is cooking, he's giving a lecture. "We must view reality without bias" he was saying, and he then drew a 9-point star on the blackboard, and was solving various philosophical problems within the star. All this is going on, and the phone rings, I answer it. 'Hello?""What's for dinner? "Isosceles Macaroni' was my reply.
Pretty weird, eh? Anyway, the link is above. Hope folks will stop in and give a listen.
So that's what's up for the moment. Thanks as ever for stopping in and wading through it. Happy Sunday to you! For now, ich bin outa here. More later.
PS today's pic is the cover of my new album. It's supposed to be an Isosceles Triangle made out of macaroni shells. Today's tune is also from the album. Hope you like it.
