- I would like to start by I
apologizing for this much belated posting.
Besides having been busy, it is all for the
better. In all actuality, this is the first
posting I have attempted using my new voice
recognition software. So far, it has been very
frustrating. This thing, by IBM, is quite buggy.
To boot, I just lived through the most violent
thunder and lightning I have ever seen. It was
working well until the two or three blackouts
ruined my fun.
- Time will tell if writing new
web pages by speaking them will engender
significantly more meaningless rambling by your
humble narrator. Anyway, back to the jam.
- Well, this was the to be the
second to last week. Dennis was in rare form,
providing all sorts of insights into his life. We
began to outline a biography of this interesting
trail through the musical era we only dream
about. When I get his permission, I hope to be
able to publish this story on our web. There are
many interesting tidbits.
- Besides Dennis and Johnny,
there were not to do many other people in the
room. Even Larry Menaker was not there. An
interesting side note, for the first time we will
not able to pay our bill. I don't know what
happened but I'm sure we will find out.
- I was in a feisty mood and I
picked on Johnny a bit. I was only picking on him
because it was in my devil's advocate sense of
humor. He kept complaining about not getting the
Touch of Grey and I was giving him grief for it.
- As usual,
we got a late start due to Larry Brents
schedule. We were supposed to eat early so we
wouldn't lose any playing time. Unfortunately, we
never got to this early meal. We were relegated
to eating some pretty good corner-deli
sandwiches. I had what may have been the last
pork by-product sandwich that I may ever have.
Something tells me Ben's deli doesn't have any
pork by-product sandwiches. That is okay because
I will eat corned beef and pastrami instead of
pork by-product any day.
- The Touch of Grey was the ironic song of the
evening. Johnny was begging for it all night
long, he was protesting the fact that he was not
getting it and and we surprised him him by
playing it as a last song. It happened to be one
of our best Touch of Grey's ever.
- It was hot but not as hot as the
previous two weeks. Air conditions, to a point is
at our new location. We have that to look forward
to. I bet there is heat without kerosene also.
The jet rocket in the closed room without and
escape hatch or ventilation never made me feel to
