Open Mic Saturday

Open Mic Saturday

Weather:  It’s been a really hot week and there’s no relief in sight, nor any rain.  It’s supposed to be at or over 100°F for the next several days.

We’re going to see a play, Ain’t Misbehavin’, celebrating the life, times and music of Fats Waller later today.  Other than that we’re staying inside.

My daughter Kris’ air conditioning went out last night so we have their dogs and cat over today.  Her a/c should be back up and running tonight (hopefully).

That’s all from here……

What’s happening with you?
