Nothin But The Blues tuesday august 5 2014
To My Friends on Mixposure
To the bunch that visited Nothin But The Blues Yesterday.
It was Doug's Birthday. When I saw the announcement last week I thought Yes, we'll definitely go and enjoy the music, the chartroom - don't know which is more entertaining but sometimes Doug's choice of music has us all silent - and again it was great.
Changes, many, in life, we have all gone through, must be the reason why we turn to music and make it, to provide for a balance in situations that might otherwise be unbearable - and once we made it through the tough times to sing of happiness and love that is for ever and always.
In 2009 I met Junie on internet, in a game for children, Superpoke Pets, that went off line in 2012. The SPP crowd still exists, there is a bond we'll never forget, names and profiles that carry SPP in them stand out - we know these are people you can always depend on, and call on in times of need, a shoulder to lean on, a word of encouragement, prayer, count on it, we'll be there.
I his radio shows Doug has created something like that, a bunch of people who care, not just for the music but for each others company - it's great to be there and know you can talk about anything - TV will always find a way to make us laugh again. Believe me TV, a chartroom without you is like a guitar missing a string !
My sweet Junie went into hospital tuesday a week ago to have a large polyp removed from her colon, tests showed it was not malignant, praise God.
But her system fails to kick in again, the first few days she was high spirited and happy with the results, now she's on a feeding tube, not IV, but fluid foods directly into her stomach, doctors worry, her system was shocked during the surgery (of course, that'll always happen) and now it's asleep and refuses to wake up.
When I talked to her yesterday she sounded so small and poorly - I didn't want to talk much, but I really needed your company. It worked, the music was great, and the chartroom lively, you guys are terrific.
Cause, like I said, this is or must be why we make music, not just consume it, but provide for a balance in times like these.
Junie's in good hands in the hospital, and I'm in Good Company with you people.
I know there's always a place and time where we can find one another.
Especially in the middle of the night (in USA it's always afternoon or evening, but here these shows are in the sleepless hours) this is wonderful medicine.
I thank God for Friends in times of need and good fortune:
I thank God for Doug and Judi, you all know why:
I thank God that Junie is not alone, she has her family and especially her uncle Jim and aunt Judy Hillin are terrific:
I thank God for giving me a new home - today I had a moment of doubt cause this move drowned out all my finances again but God says: this way there is a balance -
I thank God for music and song:
I thank God for your being there last night, I'm not the only one who goes through motions like these, we all do or have been there.
I give thanks for Mixposure that makes this possible.
Even tho my money has run out now, rest assured I will cross the Great Divide asap and our smiles will share the same room.
God keep you, one and all.
I salute you from
