How Did I Get Here, And Where Is The Next Turn?

Greetings and salutations to all who deem this worthy of your time...

Count Down...

In exactly, 17 hours, 15 minutes, more or less, my adventure begins. I am excited, nervous, and feel like I may hurl at any given moment. The BFF, and the Punk, are excited as well. To try to get my mind off it for a while (Fat chance of that) I have fiddled around on FB, played games, chatted with the Punk. (He is no help in the calming area today. He seems to be trying to get me more excited instead.)

One of my FB pals posted some music that I fell in love with, only to find that the talented voice was silenced forever on Saturday.

Now, I listened to a lot of Chicago based tunage in the latter part of my HS years, and college, but had never heard of Terry Callier. One song, and I am absolutely hooked. Such a wonderful voice, and no national recognition. That really sucks, considering some of the so called 'artists' out there during the time he was performing.

The man was also very smart. Google him. His is one of those stories we should all take a look at once in a while, just to see that life does go on. Our dreams may not always come true, but that doesn't mean that it is a life unlived.

Mr. Callier is proof that the 'music gods' mess up some times. He should have been up there with Al Greene, Teddy P, and Marvin G. It just doesn't seem fair...

Anyway...

I'm taking the PC along for the trip. I hope to have the chance to blog a bit about our adventure... The Punk calls us Thelma and Louise... I'm thinking more along the lines of maybe Lucy and Ethel... Bill and Ted... Wayne and Garth... Laverne and Shirley...

If the blogs are scant, I am having a marvelous time, or hung over... HUGS...
