Another Nite at the Zoo Bar

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.

And they played vintage instruments too - but not because it is cool, but "because that's what I started playing on as a teenager in 1958"
