Song of the Day?

While driving to Omaha to get my mom for the first time in a long time, I listened to my mixed-USB in the car. Up came one of the most beautiful renditions of a very popular song that was sung first by Judy Garland. It has been recorded by many, many people over the years. The woman who sang it as I heard it today has one of the most versatile, powerful voices I’ve had the pleasure to enjoy. It was. My brother Tim had it sung at his wife’s funeral. It was Laura’s favorite song, and it was quite fitting. I’ll always remember Laura when I hear this song. I’m so glad I had her for a sister for a little while. Very special woman.

My mom was able to purchase all of her cleaning supplies, dish soap, hand and body lotion, and garbage bags. The supply she got should last her for awhile. If I’m guessing right, she really wasn’t out of these things. She used to keep one item open for use, a second as a backup, and a third as a backup backup. You never know. I suspect she may have opened a backup and needed to rotate her stock again. Now she has no cause for anxiety until she thinks of something else. I’m sure it will be something. Poor thing. I hope when I’m old and alone that I go to the assisted living facility and don’t worry about anything. I’ll eat ice cream every day, and the world will be wonderful. You have to make it that way. Bless her heart.

It is actually a beautiful day today, not too windy or hot. I’m hoping Billy McGuigan and his brothers have a great opening night for Rave On at the Drive In. Omaha Community Playhouse is sponsoring a parking lot drive in concert. I love the idea. At first I thought no. But I miss live music too much. The Babe and I will look at going next week, I think. Here is a link to The Omaha Community Playhouse. You can never go wrong going to see Billy McGuigan and his bandmates. All the people who play in any of his band selections are exquisite musicians. They just all play well together. Check it out.

Just saw the weather. This is a first. It’s 88 degrees out, with light humidity. In fact, it feels like it’s only 85 degrees out. Gosh, hope there’s no wind chill! This is perfect weather for an outdoor drive in concert. Hope the boys have such great weather throughout their run.

I hear Black Diamond watermelons are in stock at Huffman’s Produce. I’m after one ASAP, because they are unbelievably good. Our little group of friends at the VFW have talked about how hard it is to find a good watermelon the past years in memory. You’ll be pleasantly amazed. I was.

Tomorrow will be a day I hope to spend at home. Home with the dogs. The Babe will go to the Post for awhile, and then we’ll decide how to spend the days of the weekend. I’ll make sure to write a lot earlier tomorrow than I did today. It just goes better, I think. Thanks for reading today. I appreciate your time, and will see you tomorrow. Take care of one another. Wash your hands. Socially distance. Be Kind. Be Mannerly. Be Civil. We all deserve it.
