Actually, SRV's version of "Mary Had A Little Lamb" was originally done by another blues master (and longtime Chicago club owner), Buddy Guy.

I've been there twice. Excellent venue for live music. Both times, however, the opening act was better than the main act.

I've heard that it's not uncommon for the man himself to get up on stage and jam with whoever's playing that night when he's in town. It's gotta be a thrill for whoever is on stage to be playing alongside a blues legend like Buddy.

Yesterday was Friday the 13th...

I was working the door during a service at my favorite chapel yesterday, when I got an ominous call from the back office that the managing funeral director in charge wanted to see me. Walk back there, mentally going down the list (a short list, but alas, a list) of things I could be busted on. He and our second funeral director were solemnly sitting there..."Are you still interested in a full-time position?" 40 hours a week, rotating weekends off, health insurance for my wife and myself, tuition reimbursement (just started mort school Monday), and quite possibly a raise, at a chapel down the street from my house where the directors like me and we work well together.
It's been 2 years, 4 months, and 14 days since I lost my last full-time job with benefits. My wife squealed into the phone unintelligibly, then said "Did you jump on it?"
"I told them that I'd definitely be interested in discussing the matter with them."
"YOU WHAT!?"
"Well, it was a pretty short discussion."

Hey all!!!

I just wanted to alert you all to a good song that's available for free right now on iTunes' music store. It is "Bad Things" by an up-and-coming country singer named Jace Everett. It's from the darker side of country, but I like that. It sounds like something you may hear in a Quentin Tarantino movie, like "From Dusk Till Dawn".

Emmet, that really is good news! Congrats to you. Personally I've never believed Friday the 13th is unlucky, and not black cats either... a sweet black cat adopted me when I was about 15 years old, and over the years since then some of my most beloved cats have been black ones that looked like a Halloween advertisement!

MDF you're absolutely right about Buddy Guy being the originator of Mary Had a Little Lamb - I just like Stevie's version 'cause it sounds so wicked! I like the way he says " 'spress yourself! " too. Buddy is one of my favorites, and I highly recommend "Damn Right I Got the Blues" if you've never listened to his recordings.

Oh, wait - you'll get a kick out of this if you're a Buddy Guy fan... look at this web page, about halfway down and you'll see a painting of him that I did a number of years ago. I was so happy to capture that megawatt smile! I like the painting so much I've kept it for myself...

Good to hear from you JP!!!

I wish we had more snow too. We haven't had very much no.gif . If this keeps up, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of counties in Midwestern states enact temporary fireworks bans because of a drought.

smile.gif There's something really funny about this -- how funerary functionaries offer someone a job (and a last meal?)

I'm really happy for you! There's nothing like a secure job and good bennies to keep the wind in the pipes!

Hello again everyone! I've not been here in what seems like years, but I hope this "hello" finds you all in good health and love.

I've been busy with work, school, may daughters surgerys, and just life! That, and it's cold here! I'm not a big fan of snow...

hopefully I'll be around more...but not less.

Hello everyone! I am really behind in all my emails and postings. I feel so bad, but other things have taken precedence. You know how life goes.

Had a first cousin and his wife come visit me this week. I was able to share with him the knowledge I have learned about our ancestry and he did me as well. Been fun. well, I honestly cannot think of anything else to share and yet there has been so much else going on.

I feel for y'all having to have such bad weather when we here in the desert has only in the 60s to complain about. However, we are 93 days without rain and that is not good. so we are anxious to receive that one day!

My in-laws from Oregon have been flooded beyond measure up there with all that rain and my BIL told me they were seeking seriously to move back to Tucson. So we will see. Take care and speak to you soon. !
