Bet you could use a laugh

Busy day, but even with distraction I can’t shake a deepening gloom that’s closing in as I watch the fourth graders in Washington ‘dealing’ with the country’s finances.

Let us share a laugh – starts at 1:00 in:

Friday oldie

This one was from the 50’s but was still getting a lot of play in 1960 and ’61. It has stayed with me because my then-best friend lived on a Blueberry Hill in Connecticut. And we listened to this over and over and over.

Fats Domino is just the right oldie  on this fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. I remember how worried everyone was that week, when he couldn’t be located. And when he did emerge from his house into a boat, it was an event. A welcome one.
