One Won't Do it!

I need 4 or 5 of these this morning or a big Ole bucket! I stayed up really late last night. We watched the movie Cadillac Records (love Etta James) and then I got on the computer. It was almost 2am before I hit the hay.

I went to Long Beach Blues Festival a few years ago. It was a blast but it was one of the hottest days Long Beach ever had. Definitely a memorable day. Everyone was sweaty, sunburned, spraying themselves down with water bottles and covering themselves in wet t-shirts trying to stay cool. Etta came on last so we were sticking it out. Finally when her time came she sat at the back of the stage and refused to have her picture up on the big screen. No one could see her. I overheard some saying that she refused to come out because she thought she was too fat. It was very disappointing and over half of the people walked out including us. We went back to the house, washed up, got something cold to drink, sat on the patio and listened to her CD. I enjoyed the movie and thought Beyonce did a great job.
I was in my son's room this morning complaining about how jacked up and stinky it is and I found a painting I had forgot about. I had stored some paintings in there before he moved back in. It's daffodils in a clay pot with polka dot background. I think I will list some of my paintings from last year at ridiculous prices on Ebay this week just to make some more room around here. So stay tuned and have a wonderful weekend!

I love Etta James, too. Our wedding song was "At Last". It still gives me shivers when I listen to it. Great post : )


Yee Haw! up & cash out!
