Friday morning and here comes the weekend. 80 degree high in Music City today.
I had an off day yesterday, another today, in fact the weekend is wide open as well. I’ll be enjoying that as the month of June is going to be very busy with road gigs.
HERE’S A LOOK
June 2 & 3 in Memphis with Freedom Sings USA writing songs with veterans.
June 12 in Bowling Green, Kentucky at the Dan Modlin Waterwheel Songwriter Round with Dan, and former America Idol star Lauren Mascitti.
June 16 private show in Fort Smith, Arkansas for the Arkansas History Museum contributors. With “Hits & Grins”.
June 17 house concert in Fort Smith, Arkansas with “Hits & Grins”.
June 21-June 24 in Montrose, Colorado with Freedom Sings USA.
WHY I LIKE BASEBALL
I was in a dinner table conversation Thursday evening with a gentleman from the UK who was visiting Nashville for the first time. Turns out he’s a huge NFL fan, so much so that he came over here once to see a Super Bowl in Miami. Then I told him how many times I had tried to get into their “futbol” game “soccer” and just could not get into it. He then said, “that’s okay…I don’t get baseball”. And that of course is my favorite sport of all. He’s gone home, but I’d love to send him a video of what happened last night at Busch Stadium in St. Louis when the Cardinals played the Dodgers and in one inning hit back to back to back to back homeruns! 4 in a row! I watch a lot of baseball. Don’t know that I’ve ever seen that happen. If I can get my friend this video in might convert him to America’s Pastime.
I’m always looking at funny signs as I sometimes talk about them when I’m on stage. Signs like “Nervous Nellie’s Fireworks and Liquor” that’s just north of Nashville.
Yesterday my friend Steve Dean texted me about one he saw in Panama City where he’s on vacation with his family. The store is called “Sunglasses and Jell-O Shots”. Seems like a beach kind of combo doesn’t it.
And yesterday my neighbor who plays bass guitar for Lee Brice sent me a picture of this business.
I’m not sure how that works exactly. Are they drawing back a Cheshire instead of an arrow?
A doctors says we should not use hydrogen-peroxide to clean the wax out of our ears. It could irritate or possibly damage the ear. (Now he tells me)
A study suggests that Chia seeds can help with weight loss. They expand in your body making you feel fuller than you are and you have less of an appetite.
The University of Auckland is working on a phone app designed to cure tinnitus.
Both Jimmy Buffett and Bonnie Raitt who are dealing with health issues. Bonnie is 73 and has surgery for a medical situation and the word is she’s feeling better every day.
Jimmy just put himself back in a hospital again for a second time over the past few months. The head Coral Reefer canceled a bunch of shows, was ready to hit the stage again and then had to be hospitalized again. I’m sure all of Parrot Head Nation has him in their prayers today. In his statement Jimmy admitted, “growing old is not for sissies.”
I know Memorial Day is sneaking up because I can’t stop seeing ads for grills on sale. I gave up my grill years ago. But, ole George Foreman is still on my kitchen counters so I’m good.
And then there’s this grilling joke.
A guy said “My mouth waters when I smell steak on a grill. I wonder if the same happens to vegans when they mow the lawn”?
THE LITTLER BIG APPLE
New York City is indeed losing folks. 5% of their population has moved out since COVID…most headed a south…and most of those wound up in Florida. That’s a half million folks gone from the Big Apple.
I look for them to build their own version of the retirement community “The Villages”. They’ll name their separate villages the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island.
Man, here’s to the men and women in blue. And here’s to this officer who jumped on the hood of a car with gun drawn while the car is moving with the suspect inside in Iowa. Unbelievable. Watch this.
Hard to believe I have a calendar full of nothing on it this weekend. I’m not sure what I’m going to do with my free time, but I’m pretty sure my wife does.
Have a great weekend.
