SPRING SPRUNGING

HI FRIENDS.  JUST GETTING THIS OUT A BIT LATE.  HAD A LONG DAY AT THE A&P.   TONIGHT AROUND 6:30 I’LL BE DOING A SHOW FEATURING SONGS ABOUT SPRING.  I MAY HAVE TO STRETCH A POINT IN SOME CASES BUT, WHAT THE HECK.  THIS WILL BE A ONE HOUR SHOW I’LL BE RECORDING FOR MY FRIENDS AT VRADIONASHVILLE.   SEE YOU SOON.   JUST THOUGHT I’D DO A SHORT SPRING OPUS TONIGHT.  NOTHING FANCY.  BLUEBIREDS INVITED.

CHIPMUNKS LIKE BOLOGNA

THAT’S RIGHT CHIPMUNKS LIKE BOLOGNA.  AT LEAST, I THINK THEY DO.  (MAYBE THEY JUST LIKE THE FILLER)  I LIKE TO THROW LEFTOVERS, THAT I THINK THE BIRDS AND CRITTERS MIGHT LIKE OUT FROM OUR DECK RAILING TOWARDS THE RIVER BELOW.  I HAD TWO SLICES OF OLD BOLOGNA.  THE FIRST ONE SAILED OUT NICELY LIKE A FLOPPY FRISBEE AND LANDED ON THE BEACH ABOUT TEN FEET FROM THE SHORE LINE.   THE SECOND SLICE WENT HAYWIRE AND HIT A LIMB AND FELL ABOUT FIVE FEET FROM THE DECK ON THE STEEP PATH FROM OUR HOUSE TO THE MIGHTY MUSKY.  I COULD JUST SEE MY WIFE SANDY SOMETIME NEXT WEEK COMING IN SCREAMING THAT SHE JUST STUMBLED DOWN THE STEPS AFTER SLIPPING ON SOME MOLDY BOLOGNA.   IT WOULD BE REAL HARD TO TELL HER IT WAS ME.   SO, THE HOUND AND I SNUCK OUTSIDE WITH PLANS TO RECOVER THE SLICE AND PUT IT CLOSER TO THE RIVER AND FURTHER FROM THE HOUSE.  GEE, WHEN WE GOT TO THE SPOT WHERE I WAS PRETTY SURE THE BOLOGNA WOULD BE, IT WAS NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.  I WAS PRETTY SURE OF IT’S LANDING ZONE.  BUT, WHERE WAS IT.=?   WHEN SUDDENLY I LOOKED AND THERE IT WAS ALL FOLDED UP AND HALFWAY DOWN A BOROUGH.  IT WAS ALSO HALF MUNCHED WITH  LITTLE TINY TEETH MARKS ALL OVER IT.  BON APPETITE THERE LITTLE GUY.   YOU COULD HEAR CHATTERING DOWN BELOW.  PROBABLY CHIPMUNK FOR HEY KIDS WAIT TILL YOU SEE WHAT DAD FOUND.   WOW.  MA GET THE SKILLET.  WE’RE EATING LIKE KINGS TONIGHT.  DEAR OLD DAD CAME THROUGH IN A PINCH.   I’LL BE DONG A NICE EARLY ROCK AND ROLL SHOW TONIGHT STARTING AT 6PM.   NO BOLOGNA.

A NICE ENOUGH SUNDAY

TODAY, I’LL BE AT THE SLATE BELT INDOOR FLEA MARKET DOING A LIVE BROADCAST FROM ABOUT 10:30 TO 2:30 GIVE OR TAKE.  IT’S A GREAT CROWD TO PLAY FOR.  LOVE IT THERE.  COME ON OUT AND DO A LITTLE SHOPPING.   YOU’LL FIND DIRECTIONS ON MY WEBSITE IF YOU CLICK ON THE BANNER AD FOR THE SLATE BELT.   ALSO, I UNDERSTAND THAT MY PODCASTS CAN’T BE ACCESSED AT THE MOMENT.  I UNDERSTAND THAT THEY ARE DOWN FOR REPAIR AND SHOULD BE BACK SOON.

MESSAGE FROM OLD BUZZARD BAIT HIMSELF

FEELING MUCH BETTER   READY TO GO AGAIN.  FULL OF PEP AND WHATEVER IT TAKES TO KNOCK OUT A SHOW.  (BS?)   FRONT PORCH TONIGHT AT 6:30.  GOING TO CLEAN THE CHIMNEY FIRST.  THINK I JUST HIT THE WALLYESTERDAY.    MAY HAVE GOOFED UP THE PREPARATION OF MY CORNED BEEF TOO.  I DON’T THINK YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO COOK THEM IN THEIR OWN BRINE.  I THREW OUT THE REMAINING CORNED BEEF FOR THE CRITTERS.  NONE OF THEM HAVE TOUCHED IT    NOT EVEN THE BUZZARDS.   THAT MIGHT BE ONE REASON I DIDN’T DO TOO WELL YESTERDAY. HOLY HECK….

SPRING GETTING CLOSER

LOOK OUT FLEA MARKETS  HERE COMES SANDY.   I KNOW IT’S STILL COLD AND RAW OUT BUT, MY WIFE SANDY LEFT AT 3AM THIS MORNING TO GO SELL AT A FLEA MARKET OUT IN PENNSY.  NO, NOT THE INDOOR MARKET.  SHE WENT TO ONE OF THOSE OUTDOOR THINGS. IT HAD TO BE LIKE A DEATH MARCH THIS MORNING.  SHE GOT BACK JUST AFTER LUNCH.  SLEEPING NOW ON THE FLOOR NEXT TO THE HOUND.  SAID SHE DID OK.   TONIGHT AT 8PM ISH I’M GOING TO DO A ONE HOUR SHOW FOR V RADIO NASHVILLE.  TONIGHT’S TOPIC THE LADIES OF COUNTRY MUSIC.   TUNE IN IF YOU CAN.  LOTS OF GREAT PAST SHOWS TILL THEN.
