Tuesday…Halloween….already. 52 for a high with a low of 30. Colder for sure, but Chicago and Minneapolis have snow already. No thanks.
I had the day off and needed as I got back home from my Gulf
Shores trip with a cold that’s knocking me down. That time of year. Odds go up
that you’re going to catch something if your around a ton of people and that's part of my
job so every now and then that’s going to
happen. So I spent most of the day sleeping, drinking honey and tea, and
cleaning out everything in the medicine cabinet that’s related to knocking out
a cold. And sleeping...a lot. Rip Van Whyte yesterday.
For the record I’m drinking anything that ends in Quil. Day or night. I’ve kind of reconciled to myself that the only way to steer clear of a cold, flu or COVID this winter is to just stay locked up until Spring rolls around. And that obviously doesn’t work with what I do.
So here’s to Z Packs, and Vitamin C, and Orange Juice, and Kleenex this morning…and perhaps the next several days.
The good news is I think I feel a little better this morning.
Hard to believe we only have two months left in 2024. With that I thought I’d post my schedule for the rest of the year.
Nov 8…Lyons Den House Concert with Brent Burns in Foley, Al.
Nov 9…Flora Bama Main Listening Room at the Frank Brown Songwriters Festival with "Hits & Grins".
Nov 10…Flora Bama Main Listening Room with Freedom Sings USA honoring our veterans at the Frank Brown Songwriters Festival.
Nov 11…Lulu’s with “Hits & Grins” as part of the Frank Brown Songwriters Festival.
Dec 9…Puckett’s in Franklin, TN with “Hits & Grins”.
Dec 15…Chattanooga, TN with Freedom Sings USA.
Dec 21…Star Struck Farms in Old Hickory, TN. Songwriters show with Steve Dean at Reba's old place.
Start times and more information on all of these shows is in the Tour section of the website here.
The FDA is warning against the use of two dozen eye drop products sold at CVS and Rite Aid over risk of infection and vision loss.
Kids consume between 3,500 to 7,000 calories at Halloween from all that candy. Sugar high for a while.
A new study finds that anger can help people achieve goals.
ANOTHER HALL OF FAME
Who knew there was a Hot Dog Hall of Fame. There is. Located in Universal Studio's City Walk in Orlando. I found this out reading the Nashville newspaper this morning where they announced one of our hot dog places will be inducted into the Vienna Beef Hot Dog Hall of Fame in a couple of weeks. Proving once again that there is a Hall of Fame for almost everything.
HERE COMES THE SUN
The times they continue to change. We now have solar powered cars and one of those just went 620 miles without stopping in Africa. I’m thinking it’s a much shorter run in Oregon where it rains so much.
THINGS WE ALL NEED
A dimmable sad duck light. It will help you realize there’s something sadder than you…I guess.
Or how about a bacon Band-Aid? Yep. They make those too.
And finally, doesn’t need a bicycle shaped pizza cutter?
This never seen painting from Claude Monet they say will fetch 65 million dollars at auction! It had been in a family collection for 50 years preserved and hidden away. Wow.
I have no taste in painting. I’m just as moved by this paint by number Collie.
HEADLINE OF THE DAY
Woman Says She Identifies As A Vampire. (Just in time for Halloween). And for the record, I think you can get permit to carry a stake at this time of year.
Another day of rest that should help me get rid of this cold I’m fighting.
Have a great Tuesday!
