Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite — I’m In I’m Out and I’m Gone.
What’s on your mind?
Hey Suz! Sorry I konked out on Dearie last night.
hey loohoo — how’s socal tonight?
Foggy day and got a bit of rain tonight, looks like it may clear for tomo.
was another sunny day here – 3rd in a row. got up to 72. not as much wind today :) was good to open up the house and air it out.
charlie’s christo redemptor
That’s always nice. Houses need airing which I cannot do in Palm Springs in the heat of the summer.
i can’t do it in the cold of winter :)
ben burn one down
*heh* I ‘air’ out my place daily, all year long…! ;-)
Aloha, Suz, Loo Hoo, and lln pups…! *g*
aloha tut — is your lap feeling empty now the munchkin isn’t occupying it?
Hi, Suzanne. I made it!
How are you this evening?
finger lickin’ good
hey ncbb — finally on the same thread at the same time! how ya doing tonight?
Did you really have to say that?
I’m a little jealous.
On the other hand, I enjoy different seasons.
*heh* I’m finally gonna get a good nite’s rest…! ;-)
I am doing very well, thank you.
I am alive.
I am not hungry or thirsty or homeless.
What more can anyone ask?
…What more can anyone ask?
Not much more these daze, NCBB…! 8-(
you found another lover i lost another friend
That is wonderful!
I sh*t ya not, he was up at the crack of dawn, going boing, boing, boing, on my air mattress…! ;-)
charlie is one of my fav musicians. he’s been around a long long time — here’s a better (and live) video of christo – one of my desert island songs
*laughing* so much energy from the moment they open their eyes
This is a great line, but does not work for me as a life attitude.
Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp,
Or what’s a heaven for?
I do better being grateful.
I had never heard of him. Thank you for introducing me!
…I do better being grateful.
I totally concur, NCBB, but, austerity is austerity…! 8-(
my pleasure — i try to not feature the same ole same ole (gotta avoid that rut) and hope to introduce folks to artists they may not be aware of in addition to featuring some of the familiar tunes.
when the levee breaks
Musselwhite is great.
When I first opened FDL and saw the headline, I thought you were saying goodbye. Just as we finally met up while both of us were awake.
I was relieved to see it was a song title!
ohmystars — i’m so sorry.
i saw ben and charlie do this song on pbs last week on the memphis soul at the white house program. i thought it forking rocked and hoped ya’ll would like it.
*making mental note to not feature this video*
Sorry, I am just not feeling austere this evening. Maybe tomorrow?
A very satisfying thing to say.
For a minute, anyway.
You don’t get that satisfaction if you are self-employed.
On the other hand, you can make your birthday a company holiday.
the austerity blues
at my former pd, the saying was to go into the chief’s office, piss on his desk, and toss your badge on the floor as ya head out the door while saying that song’s title
i’ve always felt that one’s birthday should be an automatic day off with pay
*heh* One would think that the piss would convince ‘em that one was serious…! ;-)
well, ya know how dramatic cops can be …
token’s giving me the evil eye pups. guess i had better take him out to save a tree. thank you for letting me hang out here with ya tonight
And then ask for a reference?

Sweet dreams, Suz…!
*heh* What do ya mean…? Ya gotta love those tropical breezes…! ;-)
And we dig you for it, Suz. Thanks so much!
Another good choice. Thanks, Suzanne.
Well, if we in Boston didn’t know before last week, we sure know now.
Sure do love those tropical breezes, when they are blowing my way.
When they are blowing your way early in February, meh.
Yup, just jealous! And when you air out, constantly, I’ll bet you have the flower fragrances.
Nite. Thanks for this thread and all the fantastic songs.
May your dreams be filled with beautiful music.
And maybe a few beautiful musicians, too!
That would be a good, old-fashioned Nor’easter a’blowing, eh…? ;-)
AP is reporting government sources have revealed Dzhokar Tsarnaev was unarmed when in the boat where he was hiding, and no weapons were found there.
England’s Daily Mail notes this incredible revelation with appropriate concern:
Now officials claim Boston bombing suspect was NOT armed in boat showdown – despite police account of firefight and him ‘shooting himself’
• Officials now claim that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was unarmed as he hid in boat in Watertown
• Contradicts Boston Police Commissioner’s account of hour-long firefight with Tsarnaev
• New York Times said M4 rifle had been found on boat
• Police sources suggested Tsarnaev shot himself onboard
But the WaPo, UPI, and other MSM outlets are working hard to spin and disappear this staggering news just as they did when it turned out Saddam didn’t really have any WMD’s after all:
“Law enforcement was placed in an extraordinarily dangerous situation,” said FBI spokesman Paul Bresson. “They were dealing with an individual who is alleged to have been involved in the bombings at the Boston Marathon. As if that’s not enough, there were indications of a carjacking, gunfire, an ambushed police officer and bombs thrown earlier. In spite of these extraordinary factors, they were able to capture this individual alive with no further harm to law enforcement. It was a tremendously effective outcome under dire circumstances.”
No such thing as a good Noreaster.
Woops, Suz, I did it again. . .Good morning.
g’afternoon (laughing) bg… i too did it again!
