I need to start by thanking everyone for their thoughtful and gentle comments this Memorial Day Weekend. Of all the weekends in the year I didn’t want to have to wade into someone whose presence I took issue with, this was the one. I’m not a vet, but I appreciate all the men and women who gave their last full measure of devotion so that all of us still sharing space in this great country can live free. Words seem so paltry considering their great sacrifice.
It was one of those rare days I was furloughed to just… well, do what I wanted to do. What I wanted to do was to go on a motorcycle ride… grab some gone… whatever. Well, that’s what I did and what a day!
When it is beautiful down here in South East Ohio… it is really beautiful. This was one of those days. I threw my leg over Black Beauty’s saddle, headed to Athens where I met my friend Greg and we embarked on a hundred and fifty some mile over hills and valleys, past lakes and by rivers.
It was awesome!
OK… this was my day off. Nose back to the grindstone tomorrow working on songs for #9 this Saturday. I think I have some goodies waiting to be heard.
I was up at 0530 this morning… this could be an early night. A Roy Rogers used to say:
‘May the good Lord take a likin’ to ya!’
