5 Things We Know On A Sunday
- I miss great album covers. You never hear anything about cover art anymore. While albums are coming back into fashion the last several years, no one is making NEW albums. The lost art of the cover and the structure of songs in an order to be enjoyed. The 50th anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side Of The Moon” reminded me of this. Oh well. Progress.
- Fresh Baked Bread should absolutely be a scent offered from car wash places.
- Top 3 Lubbock Bars/Clubs Long Gone: No.3. Midnight Rodeo. It went by many names after it became Cold Water Country, taking over the space that was once a bowling alley on South Loop 289 and University, but when it perished in the mid-2000s it was a sad day. No. 2. Chelsea St. Pub. Ya, it was in the Mall. Ya, it was kinda hokey. But it was a bar in a mall and David Trout made it great. And you could drink while doing Christmas Eve Shopping. And that’s gotta count for something. No.1. Stubbs.
- One of the best things about being old and a creature of habit, you know exactly where every things is for the most part at your grocery store. Just the other day, a young girl was in line ahead of me with her family. She realized she didn’t have Pop-Tarts. She asked the checker and her mom where they were. No clue. I, being old and knowing all, chimed in they were about four aisles to the left, all the way down, on the right side. I am old. I am a Super Hero to kids and mom’s wanting Pop-Tarts. I truly don’t feel my life has been wasted.
- Elmer Kelton never wrote a book better than, “The Time It Never Rained”.
