Due to an inattentive brain matter lapse in my photo editing this morning, I lost my dozen or so photos. It wasn't much of a loss really. Just more in a series of gray and dull. I did manage a few front-yard bird photos though later this afternoon. But, just a few.
Al's Music Box:(( Since I Fell For You is a blues ballad composed by Buddy Johnson in 1945. "Since I Fell for You" achieved its highest profile via a 1963 recording by Lenny Welch. While a student at Asbury Park High School in New Jersey, Welch had served as vocalist with a doo-wop group who performed locally, their gigs including "Since I Fell for You" which Welch knew from its 1954 recording by the Harptones. After an unsatisfactory rehearsal phase it appeared that the idea of Welch remaking "Since I Fell for You" would be abandoned: however, within a few weeks Welch suggested taking another shot at the song (Lenny Welch quote:) 'Come on, let's try it again'. We went back to the piano and suddenly it just seemed to work. Archie said: 'We're going to record it'." It was recorded in an August 13, 1963 session at Bell Sound Studios, Welch's "Since I Fell for You" had within eight weeks of its recording charted on the hit parades of several California markets, already being Top Ten in San Francisco at the time of its debut.

With my hip surgery less than a month away now, things are beginning to ramp up. I watched this 'What You Need To Know' forty-minute video today. I recommend it to anyone else out here who may have the same surgery coming up. Luckily, we already have crutches, a cane, and two walkers. We will be gathering up the other half dozen or so medical aids beginning this week. Some stuff we will get for free, some we will rent, and other stuff we will buy. Physio Therapy following the surgery is already lined up. We have a pre-surgery appointment at the Sarnia Hospital for the 31st of this month where a lot of instruction will be given in preparation for pre-surgery, surgery, and post-surgery.
BLUE JAYS LIKE CORN
GROANER'S CORNER:(( I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom. I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day. I also listen to their conversations, give them the "thumbs up "and tell them I like them. And it works just like Facebook! I already have four people following me: Two police officers, a private investigator, and a psychiatrist.
Why do Morris dancers wear bells? So they can annoy blind people as well.
