sideways grinnin' bootie shaker

g'mornin' friends. it's sunday. sunday funday in case you were wondering and i am in a great mood. the weather is exceptional here in tally this weekend and it makes you want to grab a blanket and head to the park (which is on the list of possibilities for today).
last night i went out to one of my favourite places, the bradfordville blues club. it's a wonderful little juke joint way out in the woods that's been there since the 40's or 50's. it was a part of the chitlin circuit (a touring circuit in the deep south for blues, and r&b acts) back in the day but has been a staple for blues-loving fans in tally for as long as i can remember. loud blues, spanish moss, fried fish, and a bonfire. there's something so entirely good for the soul about sitting on a tailgate looking up at the stars and hearing music float through the trees over to you. it nourishes the same thing inside of me that gospel church does. it makes me walk around with a big smile on my face.
after the way last week went, it was awesome to get out on the dancefloor and shake ma bootie. i do so enjoy the bootie-shakin'. it felt good to be alive and surrounded by positive people and some fun music.
today i am hoping to relax and laugh and prepare myself for the long week ahead. i'm not stressing, i'm not worrying, i've done all the grieving for my friends that is healthy in advance and am focusing on enjoying myself while they are here. this city will indeed have gaps when they leave but it's still the same city and i have a fabulous assortment of characters who will be at my side to make sure this little mama keeps that sideways grin on her face.
adieu for now...go outside and play, people!!!
