Cool in the Heat

Summer weather is finally here... after topping out around 60 degrees last Friday, we've been in the low to mid-90s the last three days with two more forecast ahead. Hail the Tiki the Bluesmobile's air conditioning is still running as strong as ever (and good that I got the belt on it replaced last month), didn't take long before the sweat was turning into icicles on the drive to work!

Mostly an uneventful weekend, which was nice as we've been keeping so busy the last few months. The Momma's mother came over for a (semi-surprise) visit Sunday afternoon. (Semi, 'cause The Momma knew she was coming but the message hadn't filtered down to me!) That was fun though, she was coming out to watch a blues concert I'd recorded a couple of months ago. "Lightning in a Bottle" was recorded at Radio City Music Hall a few years back, in 2004, and features as amazing a line-up of talent as you'll ever see in a single concert. The songs trace the history of the blues, starting with an African folk song and following the music through slavery, Jim Crow, the travel north to the cities... a fantastic concert if you get a chance tom see it. (Yup, it's available on DVD at a bargain price!)

Not long until we get our next vacation, a cruise to Bermuda to celebrate my parents' 50th anniversary. After a long winter with a lot of flus, colds and too much snow, yeah, I'm ready for the trip!
