As you have probably guessed Arlene and I are looking forward to our little trip next week, well actually this week. I don't know how many more times we can do this. I don't think it will be the last time but you do have to pay for this stuff and I still have to pay for the last two trip, but that's not bad considering this will be our 11th trip since 2010. This time of year most of the crowds are gone and though we are only about 100 miles from home, it seems like a million miles. I am really enamored with the sunsets. We were looking at some of those pictures the other night and I decided to make a slideshow with a song by my favorite musician, Jack Bruce. He just died this passed October. He could play or write anything. He was in the highly successful but short lived group Cream back in the '60s, selling 35 million records in a little over two years. He was a classically trained cellist and vocalist, but played rock, jazz, and classical. I did get his autograph when he played Boston in 1980. It's a personal treasure. There's this beautiful Latin flavored song on his second solo record in 1971 called "The Consul at Sunset" and it just matched the sunset pictures so nicely. I mistakenly wrote sunrise instead of sunset at the top of the video. Here he sings, plays the piano and bass as well as writing the song. He was never in the limelight again but those who know music know Jack Bruce.
You don't have to watch this next video but it's just an example of one of the hits Cream had in 1968, played here at the reunion concert in 2005. He had just recovered from a liver transplant.
So that's about it for now.
I'm outta here.
