Good evening all.  Lots happened in the last month, and I’ll expand on that all over the next few days.  In the meantime, I just needed to drop in and let you know I am still kicking.  That trip to Alaska in a short while is going to be very therapeutic.  My song of the day is a random shuffle off my phone and boy, did I hit  it big time.  Love this song  Little Wing, the classic Hendrix tune as interpreted by one the great Texas blues-men of all time, Stevie ray Vaughn.  As an added bonus, I have added a Jimi Hendrix and John Mayer renditions of the tune. Enjoy, and we shall talk soon.

So tell me, what do you do when you are driving 1100 km, over 2 days, in the rain and in the car for 14 hours.  If you’re me, you hit the radio and look for songs to Shazam for your blog.  I think I found some.  The first road tune I heard was a classic blues tune by former Fabulous Thunderbird, Jimmie Vaughn.  The song. “Dirty Girl”.  One of the Texas roadhouse blues guitar players that were spawned in the 70’s, Jimmy is a great player, very great.  Seems to run in the Vaughn family.
