    In his autobiography, B.B. King speaks about how he was a “Sinatra nut” and how he went to bed every night listening to “In the Wee Small Hours.” (Wikipedia)

      Good Morning Lucille, are you the waitress from the roadhouse fire? Every one who has ever been serious about playing a guitar knows how that beautiful black Gibson ES got it’s name. I couldn’t count the number of times I’ve seen him play, and each and every time I stood in awe.

      What a blast from the past!! Is that the leaning Capitol Records building? Trying to remember the blockbuster I saw at the Grauman’s Chinese oh so many decades ago. My sister and I used to fall asleep every night playing Andy Williams’ ‘Lonely Street’ album, and Wee Small Hours was one of the songs.

        Hi, weather! I’ve been in Grauman’s Chinese many times. Most attendees today don’t have a clue whose foot and hand prints are in the cement courtyard, but my era folks who loved movies knew them all, even though a good percentage of the stars were past their prime. I saw WEST SIDE STORY there in 1961. It was such a stunning film to see on the big screen. Although there had been musicals practically since the beginning of sound films, we’d never seen anything like it.

        Here’s a complete website devoted to the original version….
        “The Making of West Side Story the Movie”

    Mornin’ All. It is 12*, overcast white, and snowing. I am going to fire my weather guesser and start using my friend’s weather guesser. Hers seem to be more accurate. I finally figured out yesterday that I could solve my problem with getting my car out of the parking spot by putting down some pet safe ice melt around it. I know, “well, duh!” Remember, this was never a problem in Florida! 🙄 I do have to admit it looks really pretty outside.

    We will spend most of the day inside again. I will have to take out the garbage and I just heard the sidewalk machine go by clearing the sidewalk. So I will take a chance in my snow boots going to the garbage cans.

    Stay safe and warm wherever you are.

    Interesting, and true. Bourla earned a doctorate in the biotechnology of reproduction at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki’s Veterinary School in 1985.(according to Wiki)

    Here is another example of fighting back against the woke mob. University erases early benefactor’s name, and his family asks for their money back. It’s a BIG number.
