Red Shoes Dancing the Blues

  
When I woke up yesterday morning,I was shocked.

Granted, I pick up a People magazine once a week, or watch the E channel, but as they say, the family kept it quiet.

The death of David Bowie is a loss for the music world. It also hits a timeline in most of us 40 and overs lifetimes.Some of us never had a chance to see Bowie at the local theater when they came in town. Most of us knew of him through the radio, or MTV videos for those younger than us.Duets he did with Freddie Mercury and Queen,”Under Pressure” were one of my favorite performances.I love when he did Dancing in the Streets with Mick Jagger. Remembering the music brings me back to my youth, to a carefree time in life. I remember Space Oddity..I had never heard anything like that before.

  
R.I.P. Ziggy Stardust… You will be missed!

Chilly today and tomorrow?

We have officially gotten to the point where the weather has said good-bye to the 50 degree global warming weather, and we are in the 20’s and 30’s, and looking down the barrel of the gun of the even cooler weather down here. The wind says hello…ALOT.

I washed our sheets today and it is the unfortunate time to put the polar fleece sheets on the bed.We each grew up in row homes, then made our way to twin homes, and the home we are now in is a single, raised off the ground.When the wind comes down the street, well, it says hello. The problem with the polar fleece sheets is you really go through a lot of moisturizer in order to make sure you are comfortable through the night. The good “Bad” thing about it is that when it is a really cold morning, you really don’t want to get out of bed, because you are nice and warm.Also, as we are in that arthritic stage, keeping the body aches warm make you feel pretty good, at least as far as we are concerned.

I grew up with flannel sheets, and I really don’t think Jim had them until we got married, and flannel sheets are good. Friends say to me that I don’t see HOW you can ever sleep on polar fleece because it’s too warm. I usually go back to the old axiom of,” That’s why they make chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Everyone gets what they want.”

…with the exception of folks who like coffee ice cream…lol.
