Happy birthday Kate Bush (1958), and Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond (of Jethro Tull)!
I conclude the month of July by saying that I have a busy August coming right up! For starters, it’ll be my birthday on August 10th. Some readers of this blog actually came to Portland OR to “RonKonPDX50”, not sure that I will want to repeat that when I turn 60. Wouldn’t mind visiting Portland OR again, however. Those ‘Everyday Music’ stores are certainly a big draw!
I will be palette-stretching in August, going some places I’ve not been before; around the time of my birthday, my niece Jennifer will be getting married in Santa Barbara, CA, so I’ll get to rest my head there, which I don’t often do. I also plan on heading out towards North Carolina, as https://postpunkmonk.wordpress.com/ says there’s grocery store-sized record store we simply must have to see in Charlotte, NC. And what’s this? A new restaurant in Raleigh? http://www.cntraveler.com/stories/2015-07-23/the-worlds-biggest-beer-garden-opens-in-raleigh
I realize that I could probably go to any large US city and find records & beer, but – what fun is it to do that alone? Yes, I miss having a companion. Some cities such as Portland, OR – I don’t miss a companion as much, as ‘Everyday Music’ stores are so freaking big!
And, yes, I am still listening to music.
