Tonight’s two-fer serenade is a blast from the past. Way back in the mid-1980s, I was living in Mississippi, working as a newly-minted kindergarten teacher at a little school out in the countryside outside of Jackson. Crop-dusters used to buzz the school as they treated the farm fields across the street. True story.
On that long drive back and forth, more often than not, five boys from New Jersey kept me company. At home, I’m sure I wore out the grooves on Slippery When Wet. You remember LPs, right? No? Go sit down before you hurt yourself. The grown-ups are talking.
I’m thrilled that Bon Jovi is nominated for the latest class of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The last time I checked, they were vastly ahead of the other very worthy nominees. If you haven’t voted there’s still time.
I hope tonight finds you relaxing with your favorite people. Mr. R and I are out to a Halloween party. Maybe they’ll play a little Bon Jovi…
Hug those you love. Happy Saturday night!
