For those who don't know, we lost Jerry jeff Walker to cancer, I know Mr Bojangles and Redneck Mother are his best know, but I really like this one, was talking about it not long ago, a day in 1986 when the now ex came home from her mom's and asked if I could guess what my daughter (3) was singing at Grandma's (her mom). :o

Well in my defense I was cleaning house and I thought she was napping a couple days before.  ::)

Mr. Bojangles, is a song I've always liked, but until this post I never paid attention who the artist was...
I'm somewhat lesser I suppose , I'll like their music, just never followed who the talent behind much of it was.
Oh,  maybe unless it was so obvious.

Rest in peace , Mr. Jerry Jeff Walker , Mr. Bojangles is  classic

Right with ya, Major 2.

Had a powerful gut ache that woke me. Checked the plumbing, . . . twice, and now can't find sleep again.

Suppose I'll dose myself with some coffee. We're expecting a few inches of snow tonight into tomorrow. Not enough, I'll warrant, to justify getting the snowblower fired up.

Morning all.

-6, with 12 inches of powder on the ground. Not even thanksgiving yet.

I somehow contracted a cold, despite following all of the Covid stuff that is supposed to specifically keep me from getting corona -family viruses.  As the inventors of escargot would say, se la vi.

Morning y'all.
Thanks for the coffee.

Slept in, so attending online church this morn.

I didn't know the artist for Bojangles either.

'Tis 32 and overcast. "Cloudy early followed by a mixture of light rain and snow this afternoon. High 38F. Winds light and variable. Chance of precip 50%."

I was always partial to John McEuen & Jeff Hanna's cover of Mr. Bojangles...
I knew Sammy Davis did it and quite well , but it was the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band that I though was the best rendition.
In fact I like the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band still.

Coffee is on.... :)

2" of snow. All scraped off the driveway now, mocha coffee as a reward.
The kid's dog is now lying on his belly eating the stuck snow off the snow shovel leaning inside the breezeway door.

Strange dog.

No snow ... looked like rain clouds earlier but none fell, claims call for 45% tomorrow though.

I PM'ed  Roo got one from back, saying '.... " Hadn’t been up to par. So just taking a break"
So wished him well and we missed his exchange.
