Whew! Is it Friday already? What with fretting and fussing about the coming election, trying to keep my thoughts of a republican theft at bay and small hope alive.

Just put some Marshall Tucker Band and Boz Skaggs in the CD changer.Still listening to Allman Bros., Clapton, SRV, Dixie Chicks and Knopfler/Harris. Life is good. Have a good bud who used to go to the black clubs around Mobile to listen to Howlin' Wolf - can't get him to shut up about it after 35 years.

A friend an I once totally intimidated the "new, up and coming, skinny, white, blues wonder" by taking him to the storied Madame Zenobia's in the Crenshaw district. He was too scared to even try and play anything, which meant Madame Z wouldn't kick down with any of her amazing bar-be-que....ahhh the fun we had...
