Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, March 02, 2012

42 days!

42 days since the last post here at Big Leather Couch. There have been times when I have missed a day or two and probably a week once or twice...but 42 days!?!?!?!


I guess the International Blues Challenge shows for Music On The Couch got in the way...and this is my busiest time of year at work...but 42 DAYS!?!!?!?!

And I guess I just have not had my mind in a place to write...but I have also missed 5 FIVE ON FRIDAY'S...and it is music!

Well, today I received an email from Mom Joan and it really hit me.

The email said:
Hi, I have a suggestion about your blog, why don't you put up a sign -


It is so sad for me to see an old blog still up.

Just saying,


Wow...OK, so I have had the jitters to begin sharing my opinions on what is going on in the world...sports, entertainment, news...

So, I truly believe...

  2. It's nice to know, even at his age, he still pays attention to his Mom. -:)

  3. Dana Says:
  4. What? It must be a thing 'cause I came back today too ... but my absence was 44 days.

    No! I am not a copying stalker!!

  5. Jamie Says:
  6. All great songs, but I love love love Walking Memphis. Thanks for the reminder. Did you see the PBS showing of the Broadway musical "Memphis". Wonderful show.

  7. You're dad rocks. :) I'm glad you still listen to your momma. Good son.

  8. Travis Cody Says:
  9. Since when did you have the jitters about voicing an opinion? That just does not compute.

    This is The Couch, man! It started because you had a definitive opinion about a certain gray haired soul man and you decided to make a place to speak that opinion.

    Jitters about speaking your mind. I give that a harumph.

    Hell...I'll give it another harumph.

    HARUMPH, I say!

    Jitters, he says.
