Thursday May 11, 2023
And a good Thursday morning to you from the town that is Bucyrus, Ohio. Sunny and 80 for a high here in Bucyrus, a small town north of Columbus, Ohio.
It was a road trip day to Bucyrus, Ohio with Linda Davis, and Lang Scott as our “Evening in the Round” trio has a show here tonight in Bucyrus. But first, I had a robust cup of coffee at a little coffee shop you’ll find in White House, Tennessee that was recommended to me by my friend Victoria Venier. How can you NOT try at least one cup of “Joe” from a coffee shop with this name?!
So after getting all fueled up I jumped in the car with Lang and Linda and we headed north to Ohio. We did have a MANDATORY lunch stop. At least mandatory for me. Skyline Chili.
You can see that I enjoyed it.
You can see that Linda loved hers.
And you can see how Lang felt after being a good boy and eating a little healthier.
All in all it’s about a 7-hour drive from Nashville to Bucyrus but we had a perfect sunny day for the drive and I was in great company. And now we’re ready for our 7 pm show this evening.
SPEAKING OF COFFEE
How about this Robot coffee bar getting set to open in Brooklyn? You order on the two-armed robot, the robot makes the coffee, then delivers it to your table. It’s called a “Botbar”. Wow. We’re moving into the future with Barista Robots.
A new study suggests that walking 8,000 steps once or twice a week may be enough to reduce your risk of death. The gold standard has always been 10,000 steps.
The food folks in the know say we should not eat leftover rice. Why? Because you could get food poisoning.
Chelsea Handler, the outrageous celebrity just posed topless to encourage men to get a vasectomy. What being topless had to do with men getting that done escapes me.
MORE ON THAT
I have this song “If I Had Boobs”. If you listen, you’ll notice that nowhere in my song does it suggest I would pose topless if I had boobs to encourage anyone to get a vasectomy. Your welcome.
There’s one coming about the great Yankee catcher Yogi Berra titled “It Ain’t Over”. That of course comes from one of many funny quotes from Yogi who said “It ain’t over til it’s over”. I’ll be checking that out. Many of Yogi’s friends and fans are going to be part of this including Billy Crystal who’s a huge Yankee fan.
One of my very favorite Yogi stories is the one about when his wife approached him one day and told Yogi that they needed to think about the end of their lives. And she asked Yogi if he wanted to be buried or cremated?
Yogi replied, “Let me think about it”.
He went to bed, and the next morning he told his wife, “I’ve thought about it. Surprise me.”
THE ROAD AHEAD
Here are the next few shows coming for me after the show tonight here in Bucyrus.
This Monday May 15 I’m in Canton, Illinois with “Hits & Grins”
June 2 and 3 I’m in Memphis for Freedom Sings USA writing songs with veterans alongside songwriters Steve Dean, Irene Kelley, and others.
June 12 in Bowling Green, Kentucky in a songwriters round with host Dan Modlin and my talented friend Lauren Mascitti.
June 16 in Fort Smith Arkansas for a private concert with “Hits & Grins”.
June 17 in Fort Smith Arkansas at a house concert.
June 22-25 in Montrose, Colorado with Freedom Sings and songwriters Wil Nance, Wood Newton, Steve Dean, Irene Kelley, and American Idol star Hunter Girl will also be joining us.
So a busy June calendar. For details on all these upcoming shows just go to the “Tour” section of my website.
Don’t forget. It’s sneaking up this Sunday. Here’s a great observation about Mom’s from a couple of young kids.
Doug: I think my mom’s getting serious about straightening up my room once and for all.
Dan: How do you know?
Doug: She’s learning to drive a bulldozer.
Oh yea. I can relate. Anyone that’s had a teenager can relate. Did anyone else just shut the door to their teenagers room and put crime tape around it? Just me?
It’s all about getting ready for the show tonight at the elementary school here in Bucyrus. Population 11, 625 at last count. The town is famous for its Bratwurst Festival here that they hold yearly. After having lived in Wisconsin for six years, I’m familiar with the popularity of bratwurst.
We’re looking forward to our show tonight.
Have a great Thursday!
