Ouch

Sorry for the lack of activity. I’ve had a difficult week and a half. Thanksgiving day I was throwing an impromptu dance party in the kitchen for my family, when my little sister knocked a tall glass of mango-orange juice into the back of my beloved laptop. The music stopped, the screen flickered and then went black… On my way to the computer repair spot, my car was backed into by an oblivious driver and the hood was nicely crunched. Then to top it all off, I came home to find my brother’s dog, stricken with diarrhea, decided it would be cool to drop his enormous soggy load in my laundry bag. There’s more, but I think you get the point. This week, blues is definitely appropriate.

Apparently (according to the data recovery dudes I visited), my hard drive with all my music and files is ok (still waiting to get this back), but it may be a little while before I’m fully back on track. Stay tuned.

Bobby “Blue” Bland :       Cry &       I Pity The Fool
both from his excellent LP Two Steps From The Blues (1961)
