One of the musicians who was big when I was a DJ was Les Paul.  He was such a great artist with his guitar that there is one named after him, gibson les paul supreme .

When I first started I can remember that many songs that I played where by Les Paul and I would get many calls from my listeners who would want to hear more.

First Thing you Saw.

In the house that I grow up in in Denver when you walked in the front door, the first thing that you saw was an upright piano.

Puffin Away

Spent several days, different times here in Scottsdale in the hospital and now that I have been home for close to two weeks and getting more or less back to normal, I have to tell you that I’d like to take a puff  or two on a cigar from a box of  al capone cigars.

Karen and I have started spending time together with me reading out loud to her while sitting out in our patio in our Scottsdale backyard.

I have never been one who liked to be outdoors, since becoming an adult.  I used to love to ride my “English” bike all over Denver but that was so long ago, the wonderful outdoor memories are long gone.

We really enjoy being together and reading out loud to Karen is a plus in our marriage.  The more I read out loud to her, the better I get.  I was never a good first time reader but it seems with practice, daily, I’m getting good at it.
