Thomas Robert Turner, Two Tears Out   3 comments

Lummi & MCLACThomas Robert Turner, May 23, 1942 – November 13, 2014
I love you, Bobby!

On this day as I have many days since his passing,
I read from the many notes, letters and emails
I now cherish as he seems to grow bigger than
life with each passing day, just like children sleeping
his being inside me can’t be dreamed away.
The many words 
he shared can be taken away,
but not the love that 
keeps growing in
the soul of my very being. 

He left for me many literary and philosophical
examples 
to live by, probably not knowing they
would continue to shape my very being as I
continue my journey in other people’s reality.
One was a quote by Paul Lafargue:

Healthy in body and mind, I end my life before pitiless old age
which has taken from me my pleasures and joys one after another;
and which has been stripping me of my physical and mental powers,
can paralyse my energy and break my will,
making me a burden to myself and to others.
For some years I had promised myself not to live beyond 70;
and I fixed the exact year for my departure from life.”


He was 72.

Phoneline 12-21-12RIP — KiKa, 20?? to December 28, 2013 

A couple of hours ago I said goodbye to Kika. I don’t know what her life was like before we gave a rescued mixed Siamese our home 4 1/2 years ago, but in a short period she carved a gigantic place in my heart. Right now it is soooo difficult to write anything without an occasional paw touching the keyboard — I know now it was her way of helping me write. God, was she helping me write!

On CBS nightly news the announced the death of JJ Cale by saying, “You may not know his name, but the know his music.” Well, yes, for many of younger generations, but I know the name and his music. He set the tone of music for the last half of the 20th century — may he rest in peace! The master of music not to love!

I sadly post this on my current iMac and I’m proud to say I still have an iMac Classic. Steve Jobs helped us realize the importance of design, quality and ease of use.

Mean Gene, You Gave So Much, Now It’s Our Turn!   15 comments

Mean Gene Kelton & Joni — Image by kenne

The Houston music community is in shock over the sudden lost of Mean Gene Kelton. Not only will talent be missed, but even more so will be his rare ability to give of himself and share his passion for life. This is way those of us who loved his music also loved the man — a combination rare among many artists.

Now it’s our turn to show our respect and love by demonstrating our ability to return the favor. Like so many musicians Gene didn’t have insurance to cover the expenses his family will incur.

This blog, as well as Gene’s friends on Facebook will pass on information on how you can help. For starters, the Die Hards will be playing the previously schedule New Years Eve afternoon party tomorrow at Rowdy Bucks.

Stay tuned!
