Is Here And Now
Two days ago,
I thought I would be returning to Redding just about now, 11:20 pm, on
this Wednesday night. Leona, Marian, and I would have played in Millbrae
earlier in the evening and, after we returned to Richmond, I would have
loaded up the Buick, bid a fond adieu, and started driving north for
none of that happened. The place we were to play, had to postpone the
event due to a virus. We were to have played for the people at the
senior care facility, (where we have played before), but a virus made an
appearance ahead of us.
I am guessing they don’t mean a computer virus.
So, I got to be here for some spectacular weather, a rehearsal with the Phil Seymour Band before we play Thursday night for the Shasta Blues Society Christmas party and music Scholarship Fund raiser.
Next week, when the LMP Trio
is to play the rescheduled Millbrae event, I won't be playing the next
night. That is good. I have to be careful not to overdo things. If I
push it too hard, I can put myself out of commission for an
indeterminate amount of time. I would prefer to avoid that.
was one half of a Trader Joe’s Chicken Piccata with Penne Rigate &
Broccoli. I like eating these dinners now and then. The sauce has capers
in it. When I was a kid, I didn’t like capers - now I do. I guess, like
certain cheeses, it’s an acquired taste. I am glad I am living long
enough to enjoy acquired tastes.
Early Christmas Presents
(writer, photographer, communication artist), gave me this cue ball size
snow globe, with a rubber ducky Santa inside. (You may recall my recent
video that featured a rubber ducky in a tugboat trying to navigate Lake
Margaret, thoughtfully has provided me with this new rubber ducky
character that no doubt will be starring in his own video in the next
day or two.
An Early Christmas For Sandi
Sandi’s old Mercedes
finally crossed the unreliability line, and Stuart, (her husband), got
her this Subaru. She is very happy, and so are her grandkids. Now she
has an official ‘soccer grand-mom’ vehicle.
