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.

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!

The First of Several Planned Gathering In Houston   Leave a comment

Dinner at Lupe Tortilla's in The Wooodlands blog IIKatelyn Turner, Janie Turner, Joy Otrey, Kenne D. Turner, Mary Ann Turner-McCloud, Buddy McCloud, Katie Turner-Bailey and Kenne G. Turner (Lupe Tortilla’s in The Woodlands, Texas, July 27, 2018) — Image by waiter, Saul

We have been planning Joy’s 70th birthday for several months. We knew Kate and her Family who now lives in New Hampshire would not be able to make it to the beach house gathering in Galveston this weekend. We also knew that Katelyn, Janie and Kenne D. would be camping in Central Texas.

Then, a couple of weeks ago we learned Kate would be attending a conference in Houston this week, so plans were quickly made to have dinner on the 27th — Kate was very pleased. We arrived in Houston at 3:30 pm with plenty of time for dinner at 6:30 pm in The Woodlands.

Tomorrow we leave for the Galveston beach house.

The Blues Always Tells A Story!   Leave a comment

The Blues Always Tells a Story!

At a February of 2009 fundraiser
for Diunna Greenleaf, Mean Gene Kelton
was one of several musicians playing for the cause.
In addition to being a great musician,
Mean Gene is a master storyteller
in the oral tradition of what I refer to as
“Rural Mississippi Backporch” style — I love it!

In this video, Mean Gene shares a Dallas Texas gig experience
he and his band had traveled with Diunna, before going into
playing, “I Play the Blues for a Livin’.”

After The Flood Waters Recede, What’s Left Behind?   4 comments

Eastside Park (1 of 1)-9 blog framedIndustrial waste is left behind when the Harvey flood waters move on in the Houston, Texas area. Plus, there’s plenty of human plastic trash not included in this picture. — Image by kenne

We continue to destroyed nature with our industrial waste more than any other nation in history. Despite this, we have now backed out on the Paris Climate Change Accord. Hospitals in the Houston area are now beginning to deal with health issues related to the Harvey flood waters — breathing problems; skin problems; intestinal problems, just to name a few.
