06-30-14-My Morning Thoughts: “midnight” At the stroke of midnight I will be adding another number to my age! It blows my mind that it’s B-day 54…but not cause of the number…more in relation to what has passed so quickly…I mean in the beginning I couldn’t wait to be older, do things that older kids did, hang out, drive cars, stand up to Mom and Dad…and then of course run like hell…LOL! Now, at this age, I would love to have any five minutes of it back to enjoy those fantastic firsts again and to rectify a few of those defiant moments! I don’t think I was a really bad kid although had I got caught with “all” the dumb things I did instead of getting away with so many some might say differently I’m sure. Ya looking back, all-in-all I would say I had one lucky, fortunate-to-be-loved-childhood that loves and appreciates his mother and father a great deal each and every day. Thanks Mom and Dad because without your guidance it’s highly unlikely that me, being 54 today might not have been on the agenda…and I am so proud that I can tell the world that my son Bob is engaged to his true love Christina!!!!!...all the best to you both!!!!!!...love you!!!!!...plain and simple.
06-27-14-My Morning Thoughts: plain and simple Anybody know a good way to shed about 20 pounds and get into shape in less than 2 weeks’ time?...of course I would take losing 10 pounds and half-a-in-shape at this point!...enjoy the weekend all and your time together…plain and simple. PS: and I’m playing at the Eagles club tomorrow on E. 185th at 8PM for a benefit for my friend Duane Evans who recently passed…he was a good man…
06-26-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Enjoying the Ride” Some spend so much time waiting for special things to happen or dreams to suddenly appear that I think at time times we lose track of the special things happening right now whether their appearing in our dreams or not…don’t miss out, make it happen while enjoying the ride along the way cause none of us every know when the ride may stop!…plain and simple.
06-23-14-My Morning Thoughts: “^^#(*(*))&Vidxf f85s” At some point in life there’s always someone or something that does something or says something that just makes you say…WHAT THE ^^#(*(*))&Vidxf f85s(**^%^%$#*^!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...I hope we keep these to a minimum though cause life moves so much smoother when we get along…plain and simple.
06-20-14-My Morning Thoughts: plain and simple I wonder what would happen if every politician in the entire world would just have to tell the truth for about one week? I can only imagine what the ratings would be like on the news…ALL NEWS STATIONS…have a great Friday all and just think of how important honesty truly is…the best policy…plain and simple.
06-19-14-My Morning Thoughts: plain and simple There’s just something about the smell of coffee in the morning…it smells like…victory!...ha ha…have a great day all and be safe…plain and simple.
06-18-14-My Morning Thoughts: plain and simple I’ve been trying to figure out how to get my quarter-inch real-to-real master tape on a digital format so I can share some of the songs I brought to Nashville 30 years ago…I wish I still had the two-inch real-to-real tape we recorded it on so I could really re-master the whole thing…funny I titled that country album “Down and Out”…how appropriate…LOL…plain and simple.
06-17-14-My Morning Thoughts: “Complacency” I’m going to have to get out more so I can live some more stories. Complacency is never a good thing and to have a life you got-to get out there and live life cause there aint no guarantees…plain and simple. PS: Happy Birthday to my son Bob, have a wonderful day!!
06-16-14-My Morning Thoughts: plain and simple Are people buying turntables again? I have all these albums from the old days that for some reason I just hang on to and now I see these bands are putting out CD’s and Vinyl again…do people still play albums? I always loved the albums because they usually gave some insight from the writers and producers that I just loved to read. Today with the CD’s so small I’ve lost that exciting part of the musical experience…especially because they use a font size that I can’t even see with my “cheaters” on!...plain and simple.
06-13-14-My Morning Thoughts: plain and simple My father always tells me, even to this day, “don’t burn the bridges behind you, keep your nose clean and put in an honest day’s work”…I do the best I can (which is also what he tells me) trying to put forth a best effort however sometime everything doesn’t work out the way I would like. I’ve made mistakes I’ve done things wrong but I try to fix those errors, admit I was wrong and keep moving forward using my father’s words as a blueprint. I don’t know, for some reason they just make sense to me…Love you Dad and have a Happy Father’s Day “weekend” to you and to all the dads out there…and next year at this time, I will be adding my son Jack to the list and wishing him his first, Happy Father’s Day…plain and simple.
