Top of the Day/Earl Scruggs
Top of the day to you guys. I love my coffee maker at Indie’s cabin. It’s old, but is has a feature where you can stop it from dripping for a moment, and you don’t have to wait for the whole pot to percolate to sneak a few cups.
If you time it just right and get the first two cups, they are quite strong. Back in my chemistry days we called it something like the supernatent. Extra strong and extra good.
There ain’t much out here but me and the birds. A bee hovered over my coffee for a moment, but it’s black, double strength and no cream or sugar, so it opted for the clover instead.
My song for the day is ‘Preaching, Praying, Singing.’ Flatt and Scruggs. That’s what I’m shouting. Between some old tunes and my Marfar I’m ’bout near rejuvenated.
I’m on vacation, and only posting an abbreviated version of my blog today. If you want to get the inside story on the Earl Scruggs concert in his hometown of Shelby. N.C. due up this Friday, June 19th, check out Ted Lehmann’s blog. (the English Professor) The link is on my blogroll or just click here:
He’ll protest the reminder, but when you read his blog, you’ll see why I nominated him for IBMA 2009 Print Media Person of the Year. Ted does what he does because he loves bluegrass music, and trust me the man does a lot.
