I like reggae, but I love the Tops, Temps, John Legend, Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, Gladys Knight, Martha Reeves, Smokey Robinson. I’m sure I’m leaving someone out. Oh and Cee Lo Green. I’ve seen all this bands but Legend & Green.

Kathy and I went to our town's 4th of July festival last night. We ran into a friend that I was very close to after my first marriage. He was the leader of our single guys club. He always said he hated kids and would never get married. Our group fell apart when he got married and had kids. It was great for me in a lot of ways. He was our leader. Fridays he'd call and tell the eight of us what we were doing all weekend. It was the only group of friends I had that had nothing to do with WTIT and that I didn't lead. We also got to see Mark Farner of Grand Funk. He was terrific with the Grand Funk songs. His solo stuff (fortunately he only played 3) sucked. But before he started his encore of "I'm Your Captain" he went of on gun rights. A regular NRA rant that ended with, "If you don;'t agree with me you are un-American." Kathy's jaw dropped and I said "I wanna hurl". But we stayed for a great rendition of "Closer to Home". We didn't bother with his "meet and greet" because of it. And that’s the way it isn’t. July 7, 2013. That’s all folks.


  1. Political rants drive me crazy.

  2. Can't tell you how much I loved your answer to #7!

    I'm sorry about your former friend. A friend I used to be very close to has cropped up recently, too, and it can be hard ... and disillusioning. How unfortunate that someone with children could come away from Newtown with that attitude.

  3. I'm always shocked when one of my friends starts talking gun crap. What is with people?

  4. It is kind of sad what I'm about to say but...isn't it NICE to run into an old friend and see you're in a better place mentally than they are? Sorry your holiday wasn't up to snuff.Loved your answers btw.
