Long Lost Jimi Hendrix Jam……

Back in the early ’70’s, we had a K-Mart located on Lincoln Blvd. just North of the State Capitol…..  In the music section, in what we called at the time, “The Cut-Out Bin”, I found three (3) Jimi Hendrix “bootleg” albums.….  They all had the same cover – the body of a White Stratocaster and […]

April 26, 1991: 1991 – APR – 26 Weather Event This won’t ring a bell for you Seattle-ites, but at least Jek will know what I’m talking about.

Easter Sunday…..

Just what does an E-Bunny and an E-Egg have to do with the serious Biblical event we are supposed to be celebrating?…… Besides that, which came first – the E-Bunny or the E-Egg??….. ….And, where was the E-Chicken when all this was going on?…… I bet she was mad when she checked her nest….. I’m […]

An appropriate song title from James Taylor that fits the Oklahoma Weather this year…… The western half of the state, along with most of west Texas, has been consumed by wildfires, better known as “Firestorms”, while the eastern half of the state has been getting more than it’s share of thunderstorms and Tornadoes….. The latest […]

Some Guitar Players……

Anon wanted me to Post this……. Click Some Guitar Players and take a look….. It’s pretty amazing to watch….. The Guitars are bigger than the Players!….. I guess they don’t make kid-sized guitars in North Korea….. It makes an old guitar player want to retire immediately, but, then again, if you’re that good, at that […]

Where have all the flowers gone?

Hey everyone, (Those that are left) Where has everyone disappeared to? Now I feel that I have a pretty good excuse. My computer time is limited and I am on the road more than at home (329 days out last year) and cannot post very often. But the rest of everybody, Whats up? Other than […]

It’s People’s Day……

Yep, we’re the FOOLS that elected the current “Tidy Bowl” administration (they’re taking us straight down the drain!)…… Of course, that’s if you voted at all….. Those who voted for the current administration, we’ll call a “Type I Fool”….. If you voted against the CA, then you have the right to pull “April Fool’s” pranks […]
