With 15 days left to Summer 2021, I’d say we have a lot to be thankful for. Sure it’s been hot and smokey, but we have had a lot of live music this Summer, with still more to come through the Autumn months. Maybe it’s about time to put 2020 into the rearview for good and look forward to better days. I turn 69 in November, and I still have a lot of rockin’ left to do – and you all still have a lot of dancin’ to do. So let’s all do what we do best. I know it’s contrary to my hopelessly optimistic outlook, but we still have that nasty bug hanging around, (and I’m not talking about those pesky Tsetse Top Flies), but masks and social distancing are still recommended, just sayin’… So if and when you all go out this week, have fun, but please be safe…
