Saw Robin Trower and Alvin Lee in The Omni, Atlanta think they took turns opening on that tour, either way didn't matter,
If you have ever heard of Mr Lee,...

Good morning, BT .... Alvin Lee and 10 Years After in the same sentence ... would be like Steve Perry with no Journey, lol ... I LOVE Alvin Lee .... that particular song you played ^^^ up there ^^^ reminded me so much of the late oh, what is his name ... he was blind, played the blues ... Jeff Healey ... listen to a Jeff Healey song and then play Alvin Lee's "The Bluest Blues" ... wonder if you hear similarities? Just a thought that came to my mind as I was listening ... Thanks for sharing that song ... hadn't heard in awhile and you know I love the blues ...

RIP ALVIN LEE ...

ALVIN LEE ~ I'D LOVE TO CHANGE THE WORLD ...

but I don't know what to do, so I'll leave it up to you ...

awesomeness!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Flower...
I hope that you had big fun being Independent!!!
It rained here but that didn't stop the fireworks... Folks just don't have enough sense to come in outta the rain...
It's still raining here in the valley today.. It's been off and on.. and at times it's deluge style.. The temps are lower in the 80's and if it wasn't raining every freakin' day I could have gotten a bunch of the work finished that needs doing outside...
I hope that you all have been getting some rain and I hope that heat wave has passed...
Sending you all of my best and a bunch of love...
((Love-n-Hugs))
@}-'--,---
6990... Bet I get some work done in spite of the weather...
Good morning, Rose Bud ... Oh dear me ... whenever are you going to send me some of that doggone rain? I've had to go open up the glass door, put that little thingy, so it'll stay open while I go in and out with a pitcher of water EVERY DAY in this triple digit heat to water my outside plants to keep them from croaking ... that's artificial rain don't-cha-know, LOL ... 20% chance of isolated thunderstorms coming from the wx woman don't mean diddly around here ...
If it's any consolation to you ... My bff and her husband have been on vacation for a couple of weeks pulling their RV with their big bad diesel Dodge Ram truck ... Blew out BOTH of their landing gear on the RV and had to leave it in one town while the parts were ordered and repaired and on the trek to the family reunion in North Carolina blew out the clutch in the truck ... YIKES ... so that slowed them down even further ... Bushy, the cat, travels with them ... He walks on a leash with them, she's in a wheelchair (My MS Twin) so that was a little unnerving to say the very least but they're having fun except for the R-A-I-N that you've been talking about ... they've been getting it, too! Couldn't go here, because of the rain; couldn't go there, because of the rain ... I so wanted them to go to Savannah but it was raining ... they were stuck in Metter, GA for a couple of days, again with the rain ... so IDK where they are this morning but I'm sure they're making the best of it ... Last month they were gone 3 weeks on the west and SW part of the US, Grand Canyon, CA, NM and Big Bend and all the beautiful parts of the western parts of US ... they love RV'ing it ... She does miss her flight attendant days! He's a Vietnam vet, got out of the service trained to be a pilot and retired a Captain from a major airline, now rides his harley with his cronies ... they've only had the RV for a couple of years and they sure are making the most use out of it ...
Hope it dries up for you and hope it soaks down here for us but it's unlikely so I'll just ... wait for it ...--->
>>FC doing the rain dance, lol<<
Have fun! Luvya, big ... FC <3

Morning Flower. Hope Jax didn't get too upset on the 4th, I know lots of dogs get wild when the fireworks start going off. Cooper did well, hid in his dog house--just gunshy, and fireworks don't help.
Rained most of the day here, but that was OK, I had lots to do inside. baking, and cooking and just general stuff that needs doing--you know how that is.
Anyway, have a super day, hearts, hugs, and fireworks....
Good morning, Princess ... Jax was alright for the little 26#'s that he is ... it was the 120# that I had to worry about stepping on my feet trying to hide I had to console, lol ... it was all good ... Bet you got a lot done ... I ran out of books to read but I watched some movies on my ROKU ... I got tired of the little commercials on the FREE movies ... remembered my daddy telling me, "nothing is FREE" ... I called up Netflix and started up my $8.65 per month membership and enjoyed a movie, commercial free ... it was good whatever it was ... I can't remember as I've slept since then, lol ... Hope the rest of your holiday weekend is great, enjoy it!

Hearts, hugs and movies on a rainy weekend ...

Hi there Fishman ...it WAS a good 4th ... Fireworks over the lake only lasted 30 minutes ... Jax was okay with them, didn't bother him ... but the 120# yellow lab was underneath my feet the whole time, kept looking at me like where in hades is my mom? LOL ... then, they were over ... suddenly some yahoo down the street started his own pyrotechnic party at 10 til someone call Deputy Dawg, lol ... that ended quickly ... it was all good after that ... but have your legs ever been beat by the tail of a 120# yellow lab's tail when it's wagging? Man, that smarts! haha ... Anyway ... The owner and her son will be by tomorrow to pick up their pup and Jax will be alone again ... Hope things have been well with you, Fishman! Wishing the rest of your holiday weekend is awesome! Take care and thanks for stopping by! >hugs< FC <3 ...
Good morning Flower-Child.
Sounds like you had a good 4th, mine was good too. We didn't do much, but enjoyed the day and did a BBQ. I like big labs, especially the yellow ones. Their tail can knock things off a coffee table too!
I hope you're having a good weekend too, it's not too hot, right?
Looks like a real nice day here. I've been working on making this little sail boat I found into a row boat, it's been a LOT of work, especially the oar locks. Got them done yesterday and plan on trying it out in about 3 hours. The tide should be coming up then (minus at 8am- an hour from now) and around 10 or 11, the wind shouldn't have come up too much. The weatherpersons are calling for a pretty calm day, today and tomorrow- blow like hell by Wednesday. So, I'm looking forward to trying it out, might get to fish too, if it works. Then, I might take a man and his son out tomorrow on the bigger boat, and my son Monday, busy, busy, busy.-That's the news over here.
See you around off and on for the next few days.

Look at that, 67 down at the airport, it's about 65 in here- very odd, cold summer (but nice days, not complaining).

I still like fireworks (big ones) Hey, if you miss 'em go buy some and make up a model battleship to blow up. Nothing wrong with reliving good memories....

We used to take the old plastic model war ships to the creek and squirt glue on them and in the water around them (oil slick) and put fire crackers in the ship and light it on fire. The glue on the water would burn too, and when the fire got to the fire crackers, they would pop.
(now days, the store people would think you were buying the glue to sniff it- or, you can't buy it at all- things sure have changed)(oh, and from Oregon, you had to go to Mexico or another state like Montana to get the firecrackers, so they were very special)
This Democrat state (HI) has almost ruined the 4th completely now, laws, laws, laws. Too bad for the kids. I heard the firemen (persons) on Oahu didn't even have to put out ANY fires this year!- BIG change

A little more... My brother-in-law, from a conservative part of the Republican state of ID said the people are going berzerk this year for the 4th! Explosions everywhere for a couple of weeks! They must be rebelling?

(Is there a war on the 4th? lol)

We are fast moving past that awkward time when it was to late to work inside the system and too early to start shooting...

Good morning Fishman ... good to see you! Sounds as though you've been a busy man ... Fishing, building a boat ... makes me wonder if you are in the basement making that boat like Jethro Leroy Gibbs (NCIS)... how is he going to get it out of the basement after he builds it? LOL ... it's going to be a BIG boat, haha ... I guess it's a guy thing which takes the place of knitting, heh!
It was relatively nice around here this weekend ... It was a no "refusal" kind of weekend in Austin and the metropolitan area ... You drink, you drive, you go to jail ... Happens every holiday weekend ... No one called me for a ride so that was good ... I baby sat for a 120# yellow lab named HOOVER for a week ... The lady and her son came Saturday night to pick him up >sigh of relief< ... Like a bull in a china shop in my house but really ... he was no trouble at all ... very well trained and mild mannered ... gave Jax someone to hang out with ... But boy howdy, don't let his wagging tail hit you on the leg ... it felt like a whip ... Really! Step away from Hoover's wagging tail ... it hurt! whah! LOL ...
So, today is a new day, start of a new week ... have to make up for lost time yesterday as plans failed for moving out my leather furniture and picking up my new bed ... SNAFU to the max, lol ... It's a long story you don't even want to know ... Just need to get-r-dun ... Have a sweet day, Fishman ... Thanks for coming by with your cool stories ... Stay cool, have fun and here's a big smackaroo! >smackaroo< FC <3 ...

Good morning, Denny! And a lazy Sunday it was playing the "waiting game" ... Wasn't there a movie called the "Waiting Game" ... turned out kind of "weird" if I recall ... my memory isn't that bad ... some good days, some not so good, LOL ... Hope you and the Mrs had a great long holiday weekend ... but knowing you I bet you were beating the pavement ... Nonetheless, wishing you a great day today ... Stay cool, hydrate! >hugs< FC <3 ...
