The sun is out, it might break 70 degrees, I'm taking off for a long weekend, and I'm ready to Rock this Friday!
My radio station pulled this classic by Robert Palmer out of its hat this week and I knew immediately the universe meant it just for us. My station usually plays the three songs together in a nine-plus-minute orgy of Robert Palmer-y goodness, but the 'Tube did not provide the middle bit so here's one and three for you:
Then I found this one, all three songs plus the joy of watching someone experiencing flow. Especially the last three minutes or so.
Have I mentioned I'm a closeted drum freak? If I thought there was even the slightest chance I could learn to do this, I'd start lessons today. I think a drum kit would look great in the living room, don't you? Lucky for Mr. B, I don't think these almost-50-year-old muscles and reflexes are gonna go there. But I do have an impressionable nine year old at home, heh heh heh. Yes, I tried pushing percussion on Lovely Daughter. It didn't stick, but I've still got one more shot at making one of my kids fulfill this dream so I can live vicariously through him.
Isn't that what parenting is all about, really? ;)
Happy long weekend to everyone in the US! We're off to the beach to stare at the water for a few days. I'm more than ready.
