The Blues

Yesterday was not a bad day but by the end of the day I had a headache and was feeling out of sorts. I couldn’t get home fast enough. When I did finally get there I took a long nap. I now realize that I am getting my annual spring cold. I often go an entire winter season without illness and then I get colds in the spring. When I woke up from my nap I remembered that there was a show on television that I wanted to watch called “Blues at the White House”. As soon as I began watching it I forgot all about my cold. It featured B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Mick Jagger, and others. Most of the performers I have seen multiple times and a couple I have met in my musical escapades. In addition to the great music, how cool is it to have a President who can sing “Sweet Home Chicago” without embarrassing himself? Once again music soothed the savage beast, or at least one who is getting a cold. If you are ever feeling out of sorts for any reason, I highly recommend the blues.
