Another of the boys I grew up with died this week. He was my cousin and next door neighbor and we played together for years. He was only a year older than me.

How come store-bought canned soup has to be so salty and what are they trying to hide with all the sodium? In vegetable soup, all the veggies taste like the peas; might as well buy pea soup which isn’t quite as salty. Maggie is smart by canning her soup at home.

Yesterday at rehab, the therapist pushed my knee down until it was only a very tiny distance from the mat. The good part is that it did not spring back like it had been doing. The bad part is that it hurt like hell. Of course, I’m in it for the glory so pain is of no consequence.

PBS channel on Roku is airing Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin’ beginning today. Jimi changed the concept of Blues and Rock music from the ordinary to the sublime. He is still being copied today. Check it out on American Masters.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.

  1. We saw the PBS show on Jimi Hendricks on Tuesday, I think, nor bad , I wish they had let him play more and less talking but they did tell his story and the sad ending. Love PBS !
    Sorry about your cousin, I am losing some first cousins the last couple of years, sad to see them go and wonder who will be next,!
    Glad you are making some progress.

    • I knew the show was on Tuesday but didn’t get to see it. My wife hates Hendrix. πŸ™‚
      Thanks, Sandy. πŸ™‚

  2. When I do my exercises, my muscles are sore too. Your knee will be well and you’ll be walking!
    I love vegetable soups and I simply cook them in the evening after my office work. I have pieces of meat and vegetables prepared and hidden in the fridge. I like to add a cream to my bowl of soup.
    It’s interesting to read English obit. I think Robert β€œWayne” Oliver was beloved by his family and he was a religious man. They don’t write why he died. Oh … I’m sorry for this loss.
    Please take care of your self, my friend. Thanks for the song,so beautiful.

    • My muscles don’t get so sore but there is a knot near my kneecap left over from surgery which is giving me trouble. We are trying to massage it away.
      Home cooking is always best.
      Thanks, Jola πŸ™‚
