Monday Musings

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, August 20, 2012

Our Papillon, Jax, took off Thursday night and has not come back yet.

He is relatively new to our family, as we adopted him from the local pet rescue less than 2 months ago.

I feel horrible as it happened on my watch. Spent Friday walking the woods near our home for almost 5 hours and driving around neighborhoods most of yesterday putting up fliers. There is also a number of posts on Facebook.

Part of the issue is Jax is afraid of people and will not come if called.

Hoping this ends well...

Am looking forward to the premier of Sons Of Anarchy. I am hopeful they add some of the edge that seemed to have been missing last season.

Have been enjoying TrueBlood this season...they did add back the edge and it is for the better indeed.

There really is no longer an off-season for television. Between all of the original shows on TNT and A&E and USA, you can find something for your tastes. I am a TV junkie, no doubt about it and having two TiVos helps in fulfilling my cravings.

Also been lucky to have a number of Yankee games broadcast in my area thanks to ESPN and MLB-TV.

Incredible lineup this evening on Music On The Couch at 9pm central.

Liz Mandeville is a wonderful vocalist who wanted more. Liz taught herself to play guitar, washboard and porch-board. She has written and produced over 80 original songs, resulting in 5 critically acclaimed CD’s. She earned a BA in music, writes a column for, she gives fun, interactive Blues Music Workshops and she also is a blues DJ for WNUR-FM.

The Mannish Boys have been together for 7 years and have a new album, Double Dynamite. The group came together and created the birth of delta Groove Records. I will be speaking with Randy Chortkoff (harp and vocal and Owner of Delta Groove) about the band and his label.

Mary Bridget Davies and her band came in 2nd at the 2011 International Blues Challenge. Mary has been playing Janis Joplin in stage plays for years and has fronted Big Brother and the Holding Company (Janis' old band) throughout the US and Europe.
Some kind of show!

2 Of Your Sparks

  1. I had no idea that the lost pup was yours when I saw the post on FB. So, so sorry to hear that. I will pass along and hope that someone finds your little guy and brings him home.

  2. Travis Cody Says:
  3. He's a cute little guy. Hope he comes back soon.

    I know exactly what you mean about TV. Now that we have DVRs on both TVs, we've expanded our interests.
