I have PT at 4pm today (yippie, I get out of the house) and then, I will do the show on KMOX tomorrow night, and back to work on Monday. Since I can't drive, I am conducting an experiment to find out how long it takes to get from Meramec Community College to the downtown office. This would make a good story for one of the newspeople, don't you think? I will get on a bus about 7:30 and see, using the buses and Metrolink, along with walking, just how efficient our mass transportation system is here in St. Louis City and County.
My typing still sucks.
The NBA releases its First Second and Third teams, and Tony Parker isn't on any of them? Wha?
It's The Indiana Jones trilogy today, folks. Getting ready for the new movie. Is it just me, or does the new "Speed Racer" movie look NOTHING like the original cartoon? It didn't get a very good review.
What a voice he had. I can name ten of his songs right off the bat, just because they were played so much in my house. With his TV show and easy, breezy ways, you thought this guy was your favorite uncle that brought you a present every day he came to see you.
To here...huh?His last concert in 1999. Thanks, Eddy. You filled my house with gladness. Say hi to Mom.

I have issues with heights now but I didn't used to. I wonder what changed? We used to dive off cliffs at the Houston Baptist Camp onthe Big Piney River. We couldn't get high enough...we were fearless.

This was a sweet song released in 1972 by Carlos Santana's brother Jorge's band, Malo. This is a live version that loses a bit from the studio. Still, a very nice song, one of my favorites from that time. I was going through my "horn" phase and was into these guys, Chase, Tower of Power, Chicago etc. etc. Jorge didn't do much after that.
"Paper Money" by Montrose
"Paper In Fire"-John Mellencamp

A good walk, indeed
It's a beautiful day here in St. Louis and reason number one why May is my favorite month. The lilacs are blooming which always reminds me of my mom.
Another earthquake, this time right down the street. A 2.5..but something's rumbling...
It's a bitch not to work. I couldn't handle having nothing to do. I had my daughters boyfriend shovel up a place for my giant tomato trees and I am out slowly (with my left arm) breaking up the dirt clods and getting rid of the grass. I couldn't stand it that someone else mowed my yard. I am just weird about it. "Challenging yard" was his only response when it was over. You bet it is.
The Raley double feature this afternoon will be a high school tribute:
"Jeremiah Johnson"- one of my personl guilty pleasures over the last three decades. I thought Rebert Redford was as cool as could be in this. I have always been afflicted with wanderlust and this movie is a real good one to fulfill that need if only for a couple of hours. Even after seeing this while working at the drive in 17 times or so, still one of my faves.
"Harold and Maude"- Hysterical movie but one I could relate to. The premise is a bit creepy that a woman in her sixties and a guy in his teens could fall in love but as my dad once said.."you can't help who you fall in love with". Maybe the first time I heard Cat Stevens. Reminds me of high school.
