Indeed, Nessa got hers first in Meigs and then I got mine at Holzer in Gallipolis. This is all good news relatively speaking. When I get back from my trip down to Florida and Nashville both our second shots will be due. Now I know there’s no guarantee of a free lunch or a certified cure, but it’s time for me to show my face and make a few bucks. Like so many, I’ve been out of work for the better part of a year. Covid-19 has stolen so much from all of us, not the least of which is time that can never be recovered.
Well, I’m here with the gang this weekend and we’ve got #35 coming up tonight.
Yeah, there was a lot of emotion in the comments for the last post and I thought about weighing in and then I thought at least for now, if you need to vent, vent. Look, we’re all fighting the same battle here… some of us may have different weapons, but in the end none of that matters.
I have been listening to Volunteers recently for a number of reasons. There is some really great music and great songs on that album. Nicky Hopkins is certainly a big part of the sound in that moment. What a guy! It’s been so long since that was a real world for me that I have to chuckle at some of the material content. At this point in our collective lives we were all quite well off and hardly dirty anarchists. That said, I’m talking about art here and art marches to a different drummer and exists in its own parallel universe. In the light of evolving time some of the writing might seem sophomoric or fatuous. I wouldn’t suggest that anyone make life choices based on the personal stands of their favorite pop star… but you can still like the music… and even the poetry may stand the test of time… or not.
Well… still working on the set list for tonight’s show. Cold indeed… but beautiful here today in Southeast Ohio.

Looking forward to braving the trip down south.
