I really want to thank my son Christopher for arranging my birthday outing this last Friday and getting me out of the house. I also want to thank those friends who came out and helped me celebrate. I had a great time.

I had been wanting to get out to see The Vaudevillian for quite awhile. My love of the Blues is no secret, and when you get a chance to enjoy authentic Hokum, you should not pass that up. I would encourage you, if you have never seen them, to get out for the experience. They are more than just talented musicians, they are the complete package. You can’t just sit back and listen, you need to step up and take in the entire show!

Get out to see a show! Perhaps later in the week I will tell you all about Hokum music, but I would rather you just get out there and enjoy it.

 Just my nickels worth …
