HI RMQuinn37.... this ones for you...
Chicago
Hog Butcher for the World,
Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,
Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler;
Stormy, husky, brawling,
City of the Big Shoulders:
They tell me you are wicked and I believe them, for I
have seen your painted women under the gas lamps
luring the farm boys.
And they tell me you are crooked and I answer: Yes, it
is true I have seen the gunman kill and go free to
kill again.
And they tell me you are brutal and my reply is: On the
faces of women and children I have seen the marks
of wanton hunger.
And having answered so I turn once more to those who
sneer at this my city, and I give them back the sneer
and say to them:
Come and show me another city with lifted head singing
so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning.
Flinging magnetic curses amid the toil of piling job on
job, here is a tall bold slugger set vivid against the
little soft cities;
Fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning
as a savage pitted against the wilderness,
Bareheaded,
Shoveling,
Wrecking,
Planning,
Building, breaking, rebuilding,
Under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with
white teeth,
Under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young
man laughs,
Laughing even as an ignorant fighter laughs who has
never lost a battle,
Bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse,
and under his ribs the heart of the people,
Laughing!
Laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of
Youth, half-naked, sweating, proud to be Hog
Butcher, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with
Railroads and Freight Handler to the Nation.

Having a dreamy time, late nights ..
Lazy mornings.. log fires,'mean' cuisine and great wine..
Coming by briefly -
Wanting most especially to wish 'ALL ' the great regulars in
'The Kitchen' a WONDERFUL New Year ahead.
Loads 'a love

Hello again, Deer Luke ... Yes, that was Jason Bonham on drums, the son of the late John Bonham ... it's great to see him carry on the music legacy of John ...
Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart did a beautiful rendition of Stairway to Heaven ... The whole time during the recognition of LZ's to the Kennedy Awards Robert Plant just looked "off" ... something ... just didn't have a sparkle to him or something that I couldn't pinpoint where the other two seemed to be having fun ... at close of the Heart song he had tears in his eyes and became emotional so that it brought tears to mine ... No telling what what in his head ... I can certainly eye out body language but I cannot read minds ... I hope he's okay in his heart ... I pray for him anyway!...
Buddy Guy's dedication rocked ... I loved it ... well, it's no secret I LOVE the blues ... Tracy Chapman really surprised me, well, no not really as she is very talented ... but nobody does it better than Bonnie ... Enjoy your day, Luke ... Luvs ya, FC <3 ...

Gotta love that smile on Buddy Guy ... now I got a big ole Texas smile ...
:) just a Hoosier smile here. Buddy Guy's honor segment was special as well, I agree. Was entertained by Dave Letteman's one, but I missed those for Dustin Hoffman and that ballerina unfortunately.
