I've been doing my "Music Monday" series on my new blog, Life With Dee. However, I think I will move it back here. I may start posting some other things here as well. With this being a presidential election year I may very well have something to say about all that. ;) I'm also considering starting up my Saturday B.S. Roundup posts again.
The Well-Groomed Hippie is taking a (hopefully) temporary break. On September 1st I launched my new site, Life With Dee. All content from my former blogs, Tea With Dee and Dee's Kitchen has been imported to the new site and I am now posting there every day. I also have some guest writers, including my son who is doing a weekly feature called "Timely Tunes". I am continuing to post "Music Monday" on the new site, as well.
We spent the weekend at our favorite Oklahoma City hotel, The Skirvin. Just as we were finishing a late Sunday morning breakfast, a guitarist began setting up right next to our table:
He handed David a flyer listing his music and upcoming shows. Turns out this was Edgar Cruz, a well-known guitarist. Even though we had finished our breakfast we stayed long enough to enjoy several songs, including Bohemian Rhapsody:
Pretty incredible, right? Once again we were in the right place at the right time.
Sometimes we watch the webcam at Tropical Isle in New Orleans. We have several musician friends who play there. We can watch the webcam and text them song requests. Last night our friends, Rhythm and Rain, played "Harvest Moon" for me. This past April when we were there our dear friend "Captain Ron" requested this song. They had never played it before but that didn't stop them. They did a beautiful job. I requested it in honor of "Captain Ron" and they were happy to oblige. It's such a beautiful song.
As I was writing this post I remembered that I had recorded a bit of Rhythm and Rain playing this back in April:
I'm a hippie married to a pirate, trying to live an intentional life in the country while dreaming of Paris. Join me each day as I share my life, recipes, helpful information and links, along with a dash of opinion.
