Hot Town, Summer in the City

Hope everyone had a good July 4 holiday. We had family over for the holiday (I did work Friday – work never stops). It was pretty hot over the holidays, but I survived it.

As part of the family fun days, we went to the beach. As a person of Irish descent, my pasty white skin burns easily. To combat this, I bought an umbrella/tent thing. Wasn’t sure how well it would work, but it was perfect. Big enough for two people to sit under comfortably, along with the cooler and other assorted items. Now I can go to the beach and not have to worry about getting sunburnt. Recommended.

Got some great tunes lined up this week; check it out with Bruce Cockburn, Ronnie Lane, the Bears, Van Morrison, the Cash Box Kings, Solomon Burke, Darrell Banks, Carla Thomas, the Four Tops, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, and Clarence Gatemouth Brown.
