I had a great day yesterday. Operated-upon knee feeling good, fractured rib just about healed, being able to move through the world without pain be stylin. We’ve been blessed with early rains, and I drove south along the coast through the drizzle, with ocean slate grey1000 feet below. Listening to the radio. Program on NPR on Houdini, who died on Halloween, was said to be a marketing genius and perhaps the first person ever to utilize mass tie-in marketing (see Wikipedia). Houdini had instructed his wife to have a seance on the anniversary of his death, and seances are held on Halloween to this day.
Music yesterday morning:
“Momma loved Daddy,
but Daddy loved trains…”
“I’m gonna wait till the midnight hour
That’s when my love comes tumbling down…”
-Wilson Picket. I’d forgotten what a great song this was. Boy!
“From the moment I could crawl,
Someone tried to slow me down…
It’s everything or nuthin every day,
I’d rather wear out than rust away…”
-Vince Gill and friends, didn’t get song name. It sure resonates, as they say…
Finally some poetry by Albert Collins:
“If you love me like you say,
Why you treat me like you do?”
