An emergency session of Travelin’ Music, to cool things down

Well, I was saving this for tomorrow’s Travelin’ Music, but when disaster looms and it’s time to rush in emergency relief, who am I to hold back? Eric Cantor?

Cool out and enjoy Sister Ella.

You know, Jay, when you post all these “threadie-thingies” it shore does make my job a lot easier when I’m writin’ Ann Cox Chambers tryin’ to get you a raise! Keep up the good work!

What this all boils down to is the wingnuts say we can’t afford federal assistance and it should be the states doing all, but will be the first people to blame Obama for not providing assistance if that were to actually happen.

We’re supposed to be chillin’ things out, Brocephus, and you go turnin’ up the heat like that.

You ever hear this one, from the great Joe Williams? (Used to go hear him in Vegas). A funny little blues ditty about the troubles of the melanin-challenged in the jazz business…..

Well Jay, you wanted them fired up today and you got it. Maybe if the Hurricane is as bad as they are saying you could ask the AJC to start a relief effort after the weekend and we can all contribute a few Alms.

Please everyone, don’t start by claiming that the left or right gave more, let’s keep the politics out of it.

Damnation! AND Carrie Nation!

Apparently folks got riled up and drove the blog off the tracks downstairs.

And I wasn’t even partly to blame! (Drats…)

Did love Normals war tune downstairs. A different/updated version of a tune I never tire of – musically or thematically.

As is true of betty’s selection.

It is too damn hot, Jay.

And this locally made gem is just the tonic…

Well, there’s no Braves game tonight so I guess Sister Dusty’s old man will be laying in bed sleeping kind of peaceful when suddenly his side of the bed will head toward the ceiling and that will mean Sister Dusty come to bed early instead of staying up all hours to watch the Braves and see how many “points” they score.

Oops! I reckon Bookman’s trying to calm things down by starting the trading weird music early. I just know I ain’t laid in enough stock to keep everybody’s whistle wet. I was planning that for tomorrow.

Have a good night everybody.
