Blue Tuesday



A few too many late nights lately, and that next day lethargy that comes with them; I'd been doing so well too with the cycling helping me crunch up the calories (I bought a new bike, and it's been brill; whizzing round the park with my lungs working for the first time in ages, it feels).

London is emptying - well, our bit of it seems like it is, anyhow....and you feel odd and a little melancholy still to be here, kicking about, hoping for a sunny day, getting one sometimes.

We have a few days before we head South too - across the Channel, down on the autoroutes, into (we hope) the Blue encore une fois.

Here's a bitta Oscar I picked up just yesterday. "Nice".

Oscar Peterson Trio - 'Night Train' (1962)

    There ain't no cure for them Gabbi - though checking out some Georgie might help, ta Mond.

  5. You'll find it on - 'Rhythm and Blues at the Flamingo' almost bootleg quality and muddy as a landslide, but sizzling. Some great announcemnts over the bar too if I remember "hamburgers and cokes available at the bar" no mention of minerals though - whatever they where?

  6. Is this another chance for me to witter on about seeing Georgie Fame in our Sainsbury's Local? I fear it might be.
