I have been feeling a little "down" lately, and when I came across a 2-1/2 hr Youtube video from back in the 50's, featuring Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs, plus a lot of other fine musicians, I decided to listen. So I've been watching and listening part of yesterday and today. Surprisingly, I can remember a lot of the words of most of the songs, so I was singing right along. It is SO nice to hear music played on acoustical instruments, no wires draped everywhere, and the simplicity of TV back in the day. The forward that accompanied this video apologized for the lack of hi tech sound and video taping, but to me, it was beautiful and just like old times. And it's the music I love - Appalachian, bluegrass, hillbilly, or whatever you want to call it. I also love the way they look - suits and ties, combed hair, clean shaven, sometimes a cowboy hat and sometimes not. I never outgrew the preference for that look! And continuing in my favorite music, I'm now listening to Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mtn. Boys!
I have been cold all day until I took Rocky out around 2:00. I was warm with a fleece shirt and fleece jacket over it!
I walked into the living room this afternoon to see Rocky by the side door which was wide open. It isn't closing properly lately, but I doubt he tried to open it. I was so proud of him for not bolting out into the wild blue yonder!
I went with Jeannie to Target this evening and bought two inexpensive floor lamps which I desperately needed. Rocky had chewed the plug off both of my floor lamps and I haven't been able to use my living room after about 5:30, so I'm really happy to have light. It will also be nice to have it early in the morning when Rocky decides it's time to greet the day! Gone are the days when I conduct my life to suit me.
