The blues are the roots and the other musics are the fruits.
It’s better keeping the roots alive,
because it means better fruits from now on.
The blues are the roots of all American music.
As long as American music survives, so will the blues.

— Willie Dixon

PlantingPartySpring'05-B&W-72

Our friends Jerri and Jerry Bernhardt are celebrating 14 wonderful years of success. Some of us were around in the early days of getting their Houston Hill Country winery off the ground, literary by helping to plant the vineyard in the spring of 2005. We wish them continued success! — kenne

Sprimt for LifeSprint for Life, May 2010 — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The last time I ran in Houston’s MD Anderson Cancer Center “Sprint for Life” fundraiser was May 2014. I ran the 5k in 30 minutes, coming third in the over 70 age group. For now, I have given up running, replacing it with walking and hiking. Whether I start running again or not, running will always be in my blood. 

In case you are wondering, in the May 2010 run pictured above, I was 3rd in the 65-70 age group. Also, I no longer wear white crew socks!

Age Finally Caught-Up With Fox   3 comments

There once was a feisty little dog
whose name was Fox.
He demanded 100 percent from
his human friend, Jill.

In the beginning of their relationship
he was able to get what he wanted,
he needed her and she needed him.
Fox was her baby and he knew it. 

Over time Fox learned to tolerate
others as long as Jill was around,
remaining very jealous of her attention.
Then James came on the scene.

Like his human friends, over time
he got gray, hard of hearing and 
and learning to live with vision lose.
Even so, Jill give him life till the end.

(Fox died May 11, 2019 at the age of 22.)

State Of The Blues — Fotofest 2002 Revisited   Leave a comment

Going through some old photos, I found some I took at a 2002 Fotofest event, State of the Blues.
Since we were recently in Houston visiting family, I thought this would be an appropriate time to revisit the State of The Blues.
