Blues Boy King is dead at age 89. He’s one of my all time favorite musicians. It’s sad to see him go however I got to see him in concert twice. Pay your respects and listen to this song. It’s called See That My Grave Is Kept Clean.
There are two important moms in my life. One spent a week with her granddaughter and left this morning and the other is enjoying her very first mother’s day today. I was out of town all last week and never realized how much I’d miss Sarah. Maybe it’s because she’s tiny and not talking back or slamming doors yet. I thought about her constantly but I knew that she was in good hands.
A close friend out in Albany drew a beautiful picture for me to give to Erin as a gift. She posted it here on her blog.
It came in the mail while I was gone so I plan to get it framed soon. Sarah also wrote mom a card.
I’m bummed out that my mom has to do an eight hour drive all the way back to California on mother’s day. We’ll see her again in just forty days! Both grandmas, grandpas, and maybe a few other family members will come out to visit.
Normally I’d say “be safe” on a holiday but mother’s day is the holiday you’re probably least likely to put M80s in a pumpkin and throw it off a bridge. Save that for father’s day.
There are a few new videos on Sarah’s YouTube page. Here’s one from last night.
To all of the mothers out there – happy you day from your gray-hair causing rascals.
