Jazz in my life

My how time flies
Arnett played at our club. The Show Biz
in Houston.

At our Supper Club
"The Show Biz"
Main and Holcome
Houston. 1960's
Kenny left Don the
Drummer right.
Bobby in center
Vicky Carr the Singer had a crush
on Don. We went to Mass together.


 "Bobby" Doyle (August 14, 1939 – July 30, 2006) was an American singer,
 bassist, and pianist. He is best known for his early work with  a young Kenny Rogers 
Years later in Miami, Lionel was playing at the Eden Roc Hotel, After the show I went back stage and got him to write a note for Arnett who was so very sick. He was so nice and said he would call him.

Met Louie Armstrong in the late 1960's at the Famous Fairmont in SanFrancisco
My Dentist's wife had told me the excitement of the Hotel after WWII. Then a
good friend who used to work for Dorthy Draper told me how they redesigned
the Hotel about the same time. Mr Armstrong was so very nice.


This all started after watching a documentary
JAZZ
by Ken Berns, Have you ever seen his work
all his films are wonderful.

Gosh I am really OLD!

Crazy Politics- here's a chuckle











My Favorite Presidents, were
Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D.
Roosevelt, I LOVED JFK.
I didn't care for Truman
the same goes for LBJ.
Carter tried his best.I liked him.

Where will we be in 2018 ??










My parents brought me up
telling me America is a country
for all. Why do Republicans
hate so much?.
Years ago, there were Great
Republicans, like Teddy Roosevelt Goldwater, Eisenhower to name a few.
I was taught, if you can't say anything
nice, don't say anything.
In my day we had respect
for the President. Then came Nixon.
Going back even  to John Q.Adams did
a no-no in my eyes, Adams signed a tariff
bill into law - called the 
"Tariff of Abominations" 
 which protected American manufacturers
 but raised the prices on many goods.
2016 the cost of things are out of control.

This week I will be watching All the news channels. CBS-_NBC-_PBS_-ABC
God help us now.
