    Yeah, we done it again. Grilled out some hamburgers, hotdogs, had various deserts .... Watched the Heist with Gene Hackman. You can sort of see my house in the background of at least one of the pictures.... so the field you see is sort of my front yard. Oh, and had to use my brother in laws powered EV's and a sub for the sound.

    Almost a year without a dog. So hard to put them down and say goodbye. Today is pretty exciting. First non-greyhound in 20 years

    Earlier this week I spent the day in the Hospital. The reason is not important, but the experience has been profound for me. Atlanta's Emory Hospital is a highly rated care facility. They have provided care for the indigent and Presidents. (in fact last fall I spent time there with President Carter and Roselyn when he was receiving brain cancer treatment, an amazing human being) Today was different though. In a room with 8 very sick people, I realized I was looking into the eyes of the dying, yet they hold tight to the hope that this treatment will save them. In them I saw my moms heroic losing battle with cancer. I saw my Dad, nearing his 95 birthday, alone in a nursing home, isolated from his family by COVID 19. We talk, but I can't put my arms around him, and tell him I love him. I saw a caring and compassionate group of caregivers that did not judge anyone by skin color, only their needs. A very gaunt Black man was helped into the room by his caring daughter and was seated next to me. We made eye contact and he greeted me with "Happy Father's Day". A special type of man! It is not a perfect world. Hateful people of all races continue to shoot, kill and loot on the streets of Atlanta, Chicago, New York, LA, Houston.............. But most of us have not lost our humanity. It's just that the ones that have seem to scream the loudest. Please engage with those around you. You may never know the difference you can make in one persons life.. Jerry I am not a country music fan, but in the 70's a College friend introduced me to John Prine. I remain a fan. This song has always been special, but is more meaningful today than ever.

    I had a leading part in a short independent film called Bingo Night. It's now on YouTube. Maybe the young lady who directed it will get a few cents if you watch it. No, I don't. I think it's seven minutes long, but it has won prizes at a few film festivals. SSH

    A woman decides to have a face lift for her 50th birthday. She spends $15,000 and looks sensational. On her way home, she stops at a news stand to buy a newspaper. Before leaving, she says to the clerk, ‘I hope you don’t mind my asking, but how old do you think I am?”. ‘About 32,’ is the reply.’ ‘Nope! I’m exactly 50,’ the woman says happily. A little while later she goes into McDonald’s and asks the counter girl the very same question. The girl replies, ‘I’d guess about 29.’ The woman replies with a big smile, ‘Nope, I’m 50.’ Now she’s feeling really good about herself. She stops at a candy shop on her way down the street. She goes up to the counter to get some mints and asks the assistant the same burning question. The clerk responds, ‘Oh, I’d say 30.’ Again she proudly responds, ‘I’m 50, but thank you!’ While waiting for the bus to go home, she asks an old man waiting next to her the same question. He replies, ‘Lady, I’m 78 and my eyesight is going. Although, when I was young there was a sure-fire way to tell how old a woman was. It sounds very forward, but it requires you to let me put my hands under your bra Then, and only then I can tell you EXACTLY how old you are.’ They wait in silence on the empty street until her curiosity gets the better of her. She finally blurts out, ‘What the hell, go ahead.’ He slips both of his hands under her blouse and begins to feel around very slowly and carefully. He bounces and weighs each breast and he gently pinches each nipple. He pushes her breasts together and rubs them against each other. After a couple of minutes of this, she says, ‘Okay, okay.....How old am I?’ He completes one last squeeze of her breasts, removes his hands, and says, ‘Madam, you are 50.’ Stunned and amazed, the woman says, ‘That was incredible, how could you tell?’ ‘I was behind you at McDonalds.

    Whole thing is a non-debate. Far more were killed by conventional bombing. Many times more would have died without the bomb. Once you are in a war, you kill people and break things until the other side stops. Humane warfare is a contradiction in terms. Dave

    Do you think she’s trying to kill me? This was presented while Brubeck’s Take Five played from her phone. I’m not even her father, but I am the father of her two sons. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! She also made cinnamon buns. Where did I put that insulin?

    Found a bit more on Neil Young's new LP. Neil Young puts it best: "This album is the unheard bridge between Harvest and Comes a Time". Recorded between June 1974 and January 1975, Homegrown was intended to come out in 1975 before Neil cancelled the release. The album has remained unreleased until now, achieving a legendary status among Neil Young fans in the process. The album is made up of twelve Neil Young songs, of which seven are previously unreleased - "Separate Ways," "Try," "Mexico," "Kansas," "We Don’t Smoke It No More," "Vacancy" and "Florida" (a spoken word narration). Also included are the first recordings of "Love Is A Rose," "Homegrown," "White Line", "Little Wing," and "Star Of Bethlehem" – different versions of which would all later appear on other Neil Young albums. Neil plays solo on some tracks (guitar, piano and harmonica), and is joined by a band of friends on other tracks, including Levon Helm, Ben Keith, Karl T Himmel, Tim Drummond, Emmylou Harris and Robbie Robertson. Recorded in analog, and mastered from the original master tapes, this long-lost album is a wonderful addition to Neil’s incomparable catalog.

    I got politely booted off the pc earlier. Other stuff did get in the way and I lost some time but did get a bit done since this afternoon. @billybob don't have that Seeger System that you posted recently that I like, but do have a couple others. My Night Moves was on cassette so it's nice to have that again, same with Goats Head Soup my second favorite Stones LP. Could have gone without picking up those Hot Rocks best of records last year, got `em all how they came out now!

    I'm restoring my 1962 Triumph 350cc motorcycle. Needed a piston barrel because mine would have to be re-sleeved. So I find one with still plenty of life to it on ebay in merry old England. It arrives this week packed in an ancient rusty metal container. The security of the barrel is shored up with sawed up pieces of a wooden bannister and what looks to some ancient wood flooring. Scatter throughout are some very oily pieces of what looks to be paraffin paper. It worked. Everything was fine. I may be wrong, but I'd like to think that that ancient metal box was an ammunition box from the Battle of Britain. it's certainly at least that old.

    We lost our mother today. Actually Heaven gained another musician. It stinks but we recognize that she has not been in any pain since this morning at 10:10. Got practical, legal and financial stuff to take care of real soon. A lady that has grown dear to us since she moved in across the street called earlier tonight to say something was left at the beginning of the drive here. Well New York City folks aren't all stereotypical. This one is loved after only a couple years here. Imagine that this is one way people from up there honor their friends. I can actually visualize Love springing from the Earth, blossoming, growing wings then off to Heaven😥

    Finally opened the box from last week. Got to leave the discogs seller a review and geeze, I've not had time for too much lately. Could be the rig or could be the improved pressing over the original that I knew was kinda lacking. Their earlier stuff live I haven't heard in decades now. RUSH All The World's A Stage

    @BigStewMan My guitar playing buddy, who has been working as a historian of various capacities his whole life, sent me this. Me in 1968, Platteville, Wisconsin. He has stuff from then to now all organized and cataloged. Photographer was Russ Spiering. The guitar was a Guild D-40, owned by a friend of ours, Dennis Schaut. Dennis now lives in Pennsylvania, while Roger is in Statesboro, GA. Always amazing to see how our lives have changed over the years.

    August 6th is around the corner and already I’ve seen a few articles lamenting the decision and pining about the travails of the ‘survivors’. There’s no question that WW2 was horrific. It was horrific before we were involved. And it is not unusual for scholars and lay people alike to ponder the choices made during such hard times. But there’s this tendency to flail America endlessly for the use of the atomic weaponry, as though Japan was a peace loving nation that was mercilessly slaughtered. Rarely, as in VERY rarely do you ever see articles about the horrors facing America and Americans leading up to the decision to deploy such a ghastly weapon. My father-in-law was at Okinawa. He knew 1st hand what to expect if we actually invaded Japan. Regardless we cannot put the genie back in the bottle. Given what we know now atomic weaponry would most certainly have evolved somewhere besides America and perhaps used in anger in some other wartime application. I am writing this only because of the apologists who annually set about handwringing over this ‘’travesty’’. They were not there. They were not in Shanghai nor in Manila. Instead of soliciting America to knee bending guilt trips they should be honest. The postage stamp should show the Enola Gay and it should read, ‘’we’re sorry you made us do this to you.’’ https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/bloody-hell-okinawa-180975148/

    Just wait until you forget your wife and her name........long story which I will not go into but I went home and told my wife immediately before she heard it from someone else. I am lucky to have an understanding wife who knows I can be forgetful or we are at a point in our lives where nothing surprises anymore.
