Do You Remember Hank Williams?

Do you remember his songs?

Hank died sixty years ago as New Years day approached.  A dangerous cocktail of alcohol & drugs resulted in a massive heart attack.  He was 29 years old.  His influence lingers on …

It’s a shame he didn’t live longer.

Still … his influence lingers on …

People My Age

Have Started Looking Gross

We recently attended a great concert by Red Horse … a trio of singer-songwriters  … John Gorka, Lucy Kaplansky, and Eliza Gilkyson.  Each of them are with the Red House label.  We have several John Gorka CDs and thoroughly enjoy his music.

At the concert, we purchased John’s “The Company You Keep”  CD. On that CD is a song entitled “People My Age.”

You should listen to his story …

 They’re Playin’ Our Song on YouTube

I ain’t as good I once was.  That’s the cold hard truth.

My body says, “You can’t do this , boy”, but my pride says. “Oh yes I can.”


Noon … Text to Vince:

Thanks for the racquetball match.  It felt great to play again.  Next time, you will work harder for  any wins.


7:00PM … Note to Vince:

At this point, I see the distinct possibility that you will never be faced with a challenge for a rematch and my racquet may be put on eBay or retired to light duty as a beater for laundry hanging on a clothesline.


7:00AM  … Comment to wife:

My knees hurt too much.  I can’t walk the dogs today.

I’m not as good as I once was, but, I’m as good once, as I ever was.

In this case … I don’t think so.


[Editor’s Note:  This situation occurred a couple months ago.  Essentially, I have recovered but my knees will never forget.  My racquet is seeking a new home.]
