Good Weekend Widdershins

Actually we know all is not well.  We have (according to his niece) an almost certifiable crazy man in the White House.  He’s almost proud that he passed a dementia test.  He has let a viral disease just decimate the country.

Of course the pollsters and polls say his opponent is going to whup his ass in the election.  Funny thing though is we thought the same thing in 2016.

So what we need to do is spend some time chillaxin’.  And I have the perfect music for that:  Mantovani.

Okie-doke.  Take your meds, listen to the music and r-e-l-a-x.

Hello Widdershins
is anyone having a good weekend?

I’ll admit that I’m not.  In fact haven’t had a good last few days.  It’s just due to all the bullshit that’s happening around and with us now.  Honestly, I haven’t seen one damned piece of good news in the last week or so.  I’m “off my feed” in that I have to think “You need to fix something to eat” and then I have to think long and hard about that. I needed to go to the bank yesterday, inside, and had to make an appointment!  When I got to the door they asked me a series of questions and then they let me in.  What a world.

While it’s true that poll numbers are looking very good for Biden, I don’t trust them.  I have a good reason not to trust the numbers:  2016.  To express it in “country format”, that learnt me real good.

So yes Fredster has the blues and with that let’s look at some blues songs.  If I’m down in the dumps might as well make  y’all feel the same.

And what would the blues be without Billie Holiday?

Awrite, there ya go.  I really don’t expect any musical contributions to this however comments are always welcomed.

As always, the infamous open thread.

 

Good Weekend Widdershins

Thank goodness this awful week is over.  From the ever rising numbers of the pandemic, to the news of RBG, and then the passing of John Lewis.

However, since I had already started working on this post with this theme. I’m going to continue it.

The heat, boy howdy have we had it here.  We have had temps in the 90s with heat indices going up to as high as 105 and 111.  The only instances where we haven’t had numbers like that were when we had thunderstorms move thru and yes it lowered the temps briefly but then we got advisories of “areal flooding”.  And then naturally the rain would end, the sun would come back out and then it truly did feel like a sauna outside.

Let’s take a look at some songs about heat, sun, hot, just whatever you can think of that fits in the category.

And last, if you’re gonna talk about hot what would it be without this one

Okay widdershins, share a few of your own choices in the comments and need I say it:  Open thread.

 

Happy holiday weekend Widdershins

And also a happy fourth of July to you.

It’s great that it falls on a weekend.

If you’re going to be out and about be safe.

And if you’re going to be home and having a cookout watch that grill for any flareups.

Discuss anything you feel like discussing, if anything at all.  Perhaps just cook, r-e-l-a-x, and take it easy.

Open thread.

Good weekend Widdershins

So actually the summer solstice was on the 20th, last weekend, but I was just feeling too lousy to fool with much of anything.  Better late than never.

Summer is truly here for us.  At the time I’m writing this the temp is 90° with a feel like of 101°.  Indeed that merits an oy!

Summer songs; here ya go.
