We had been invited out to join other friends for a farewell of sorts for yet another soul gone to soon. He went by J R and I’m not sure anyone really knew his name. We had met him several times and knew him from our earlier days up at Blues. He was known by many for get togethers he would hold on local beaches. Nothing exotic…. burgers, dogs and whatever sides anybody cared to bring along. There was always decent music playing, lots of laughter and generally always a good time. I never heard a definitive cause, but suspect it was cancer of some sort. He was around my age and usually appeared in decent condition. Whatever the case….. he was much to young. Today’s outpouring of people that showed up in his memory was an easy, clear indication of the friends he had. In the same fashion as his get togethers… there was music, laughter, food and everybody was having a good time. There was a couple somber minutes as a local pastor spoke a nice little eulogy and led a quick prayer. The weather was perfect and it was just a very enjoyable afternoon gathering. I’m sure J R would have loved it.
Back here now in time to see the Bengals making a decent comeback to tie the game at 21/21. I just got my tentative schedule and it looks like I’m not diving until Wednesday, but that can change with one text….. so I guess we’ll see. Looks like I have a photo shoot for the shop doing new staff pictures for the website, so I can use a couple of down days to get to know my new camera and hopefully look like I know what I’m doing come Thursday (shop photo shoot) For now— think I’m gonna get comfy on the couch and enjoy whatever down time I come up with.
Good Night Y’all : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Thankx for stopping in~!
