A Dimm View of Life

Two girls, a boy, a dog, a cat, turtle, a granddaughter and a full time job. My wite and I are just trying to keep up.

DAY EIGHTEEN: 92 days of Dimm
The band played at the football game last night. Here’s my son with the flag.
He did a great job and the entire show was amazing!
I took twelve pictures and this is the only one worth anything. (sigh)  That’s what I get for sitting in the stands with my iPhone.
Going to visit my mother today.

Years ago CBS presented a summer variety show titled “The Manhattan Transfer”. It featured four young singers. A few years later I stumbled across PBS Soundstage featuring the same group of four.

Later, I worked as a radio announcer and I was pleased to introduce the Manhattan Transfer to our audience. I have always loved this group and have considered them my all-time favorite.

I just heard that group founder Tim Hauser has left this realm. I can’t believe it. Among the few regrets I have is not taking the time to see them perform live. I always intended to but, you know…life and stuff.

At the top left is Mr. Hauser. At the top right is the long standing quartet together. The middle two are the covers of my favorite of their albums. The bottom two are are other things I found that I really love.

The previous repost includes a link to my favorite MT song, Soul Food To Go. I’ll be listening to that most of the weekend along with the rest of the catalog.

RIP sir. Thank you.

Talk to you soon,

Alex

MOMENTO MUSICALE

Ecco a voi il soudtrack ideale per preparare la miglior colazione/pranzo/cena/spuntino di sempre.

Proprio come nelle pubblicità in cui spadellano, fanno roteare i coltelli, flambizzano e a un certo punto chiudono un cassetto della cucina con una chiappa a tempo di musica.

DAY SEVENTEEN: 92 Days of Dimm

The Giants won last night. I shouldn’t say it, but I am happy for the wrong reasons.

I didn’t want the Cardinals to win. They have had a string of postseason appearances and rings.

As a long suffering Cubs fan, we have seen our team have some postseason activity recently but not at the same level as those crazy redbirds.

That said, I don’t hate the St. Louis team. You have to admire what they’ve accomplished.

I’m just ready for a change.

The past few years the Cubs haven’t come close to competing. That may change in 2015. The new ownership has poured a foundation that could build into something big.

It’s weird they spent the past year celebrating Wrigley and now they are tearing it apart. I get it. It’s just hard to watch.

So you go Giants! I applaud you setting aside the crew from the “show me” state. Now there’s one more from the 21st state. Don’t be frightened by the perfect streak. You can get them. Take that trophy and keep it safe.

Cause next year…

Talk to you soon,

Alex

DAY SIXTEEN: 92 Days of Dimm

Stating the obvious isn’t the way I would prefer to open a blog post…but today is Thursday. Not only that but Thursday night.

It’s been a long and stressful week, and it isn’t over. Work has been rough but we’ve muscled through.

There was some good news today. I’m down to 279 pounds. That’s three pounds since Monday. I know, its only one pound since a week ago Monday. Just never you mind.

There’s got to be a bright moment somewhere.

I am keeping up with the exercise. If I can stay in control of my eating habits, maybe I can drop a few more.

Talk to you soon,

Alex

I love to laugh. No one could make me laugh harder than this man.

Jonathan Winters was a genius. I miss him so.

Talk to you soon.
