Earth to BobG, please reply...

Looks like I've been remiss about blogging for a few days.
Ever have one of those periods where you can't seem to get too excited about anything? It's been like that around here. Something about the weather change seems to cause a slight ebb in my metabolism, which in turn affects my moods. It never reaches the depression stage, but it does cause an amazing case of apathy at times. Add that to the pains of a bad back, edema, sleep apnea, and the normal BS of everyday life, and it can get to you at times. Luckily I seem to be coming out of my slump, so thank you for visiting during this time.
I haven't really been doing too much during this time, mainly getting things ready for winter out in the yard. I did go to a gun show Saturday, and that cheered me a bit, even though I couldn't afford some of the stuff I really liked.

Most of the weekend was classical music time; I seemed to be favoring Handel and Bach, with a bit of Vivaldi thrown in. Today I seem to be in a "country oldies" mood; these are the top ten in the playlist:

"Tennessee Stud" by Eddy Arnold
"Cold, Cold Heart" by Hank Williams
"Johnny Reb" by Johnny Horton
"I Walk the Line" by Johnny Cash
"Wolverton Mountain" by Claude King
"Saginaw, Michigan" by Lefty Frizzell
"Walkin' After Midnight" by Patsy Cline
"Ribbon of Darkness" by Marty Robbins
"Long Haired Country Boy" by The Charlie Daniels Band
"He'll Have to Go" by Jim Reeves

Anyone else out there old enough to remember them?

That's before country music went limp wristed. Good stuff.

I've got a cure for your metabolism:

Macaroni with sour cream and bacon!

;)

I hear you about apathy sometimes... I get burnt out without evening knowing that I've burned out!!

Way to go - things can only get better.

I've been that way for a couple of weeks. I also have been thinking about pulling the plug. We'll see.

The City of Columbus screwed us out of some great gun shows quite a few years ago. There is one now each month, but there's not much worth buying. Wanna trade shows?

That looks like a good playlist to me. I'm too young to remember any of the artists, but there are a handful of the songs that I know and like.

Still looking good, those country oldies.

GUYK said...

I have a classic country music station on my cable and I listen to all these oldies every day..

Besides both being BobG we obviously share a similar taste in music. I'd like to add "The Wabash Cannonball" by Roy Acuff, "Walking the Floor Over You" Ernest Tubb and I'm Movin' On by Hank Snow. Love that real Country Music!
