I just listened to Roger Miller‘s gorgeous, impromptu version of “Leaving’s Not the Only Way to Go,” and my heart just melted. What a fabulous song, by such a remarkable performer. I have always loved Roger, and listen to him on a regular basis. But sometimes even somebody you know so well can take you off guard, and remind you why you love them to begin with. Here’s that song, so you can melt right along with me: PLAY SONG
I’m laying low today, still nursing my ills. I am, however, well enough to shoot a video to say a few things on my mind.
I started my morning eating fried okra, cupcake-flavored Pebbles cereal and cold tomato ding-ding, washing it down with an entire pot of perked black decaf coffee. It may shock you to know that it’s not that unusual for me to eat as such. Well, I had a tummy ache all day, and that leads me to believe I’m still gunna need some time before I can call myself completely well again. The old cast iron stomach failed me. I am no Pepper Gomez! As it stands, I’ll just have to do the best I can with what the good lord has provided me with.
Bed is made. Sanka is sipped. Almost time to call it a day.
