It seems somewhat fitting that Studs departs us on Halloween. A true man of the people, he'll have one more opportunity to dance with the damned and bedevil the complacent, the fat-cats, the oligarchs. Too bad he didn't live to witness the election of Obama. Farewell sweet prince.
Please tell ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on 'donating a mammogram' for free (pink window in the middle). This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammograms in exchange for advertising. Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know.
Paddy and I met at the Zoo bar again on Friday. We sat outside and had a few pints and a delicious "Tavern Burger" as mine was called. Paddy just had a cheeseburger. It was nice sitting in cool autumn air. After the burgers we went inside and enjoyed the atmosphere of a mid-western neighborhood bar. About 10 o'clock 4 wonderful musicians, called Sookey Jump, took the stage and entertained us with delta blues and some great rockabillie tunes. There was even a railroad song! I requested Orange Blossom Special but it was not in their repetroire. Maybe Patsy and Brian can play their stage some night. Ah for days past.
