Where were you on Monday, May 18, 1981?
I had been promoted to management at the banks IT shop in December, and by now my group was the largest, best managed and happiest team on the floor. Reagan had survived an assassination attempt. MTV had gone on the air and was having the same influence on music as Elvis and the Beatles decades earlier.
Lets cue the Rockumentary theme!
He had to die before getting this hit, which came in at #10 this week. Its a song explaining what he had been doing since his last disk in 1974.
DJ fern is our premire Soldier Tribute lady!

Oh Carp! Does that mean were cold busted for all the posts we've made about you?
The pictures of you in a grass skirt after too many Jack Daniels poi jello shots? It was all in good fun Bigs we swear!!! ;-} *HUGS!*
Good evening Kathy & I can’t believe your getting more snow?
Is this the summer that never was for you? :) *Hugs*
Hiya JJ! *Hugs*
More snow & no summer for you either?
Yep, we wait and wait.
It's Tunes For Our Troops!
Hi Migrane & thanks for joining in this evening! *Hugs*
I don’t have my music stuuf hooked up yet & couldn’t find a youtube of Ian and Sylvia Short Grass. Now I really want to check it out!
I’m in a “cowboy” state of mind this evening..could ya tell? :)
The first link below is a link to You Tube videos of a local Houston Blues Band named “Blues Other Brothers”. “Doc” Greene, the director, lead singer and bassist is a personal friend of mine. What makes this band so special and unique is that they do benefit performances only. They never charge for their music. They have their own instruments and equipment which they pay for individually and as a group. They play at retirement homes, the VA hospital and other such venues. Please visit their You Tube channel where you will find many videos of their performances.
I salute him and all of his band members. His contributions to retirees and veterans has almost caused me to retrieve the drums from the attic, dust them off and remove the cob webs, but not quite. I might even have to buy some sticks because I do not know where mine are. ;-)
Here is the link to their You Tube channel:
Anyway, after you have visited their You Tube page and if you want to make comments then their Facebook page is as follows:
Good evening, Publius, and thank you for Rachmaninov’s “The Star Spangled Banner”.
In 1987, our family moved to California to take up the pastorate of a church in the Long Beach area. The day we flew into town, my secretary picked us up at the airport to take us to our house. As we pulled into traffic, the very first thing I saw was a bumper sticker that read: Welcome To California . . . Now Go Home! It was not exactly a warm and cheery welcome to sunny southern California!
I wonder if there might be occasions in our lives when we send similar signals to people around us. Whether we are at church, in the neighborhood, or at social gatherings, are there times when we fail to make others feel welcome in our world?
In Romans 12:13, Paul instructed his readers to be given to hospitality. The book of Hebrews goes even further, saying, Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels (13:2). By showing gracious kindness to those who come our way, we echo the Saviors invitation for salvation, which declares, Let him who hears say, Come! And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely (Rev. 22:17).
To show someone loving hospitality just might be the first step in showing that person the way to heaven.
Read: Revelation 22:16-21
Simple and dignified, as usual.
Kim Carnes made #1 this week. It will be the last song I post.
Almost Classically Classical

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...hope you had a good day.
David doing one day better?
It is SNOWING here....the ground is all white!! Possibility of 3 to 5” by tomorrow. ARGH!!!!! The Saturday temps are supposed to be mid 40s, so it better melt fast. Then we have to contend with all the melt again....messy, messy, muddy!
“Where were you on Monday, May 18, 1981?”
I had the world by the tail, living out of a suitcase and a heartbeat away from the vice presidency of a major, worldwide, petroleum-related corporation. I was loving every minute of it!
I was also ‘sitting-in’ with local Salsa bands because I had and have always considered music to be a hobby and love rather than an occupation.
Could you please ping a list to this post since I don't have mine on this computeer yet? *sorry* :)
Please check out this new video by a very talented FReeper "Backspace" Perry Nunley entitled.... *When Freedom Rings*

I will if Kathy isn’t here.
There you be. I was wondering when you'd show up.
