Saturday Night #BlackLivesMatter Protest Party! (Part 17)

 This is how I am feeling right now.

In memory of Danroy "DJ" Henry Jr.


"As people exercise their right to protest all across the country––let the undeniable paths of our progress be a guide going forward: peaceful, sustained protest; strategic, committed organizing; and purposeful, overwhelming participation at the ballot box.” - Barack Obama, August 2020

PS - HAPPY BIRTHDAY (October 25) to the one, the only, the indescribable, the indestructible Mistress Maddie!

PPS - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY (October 21) to Mitchell & Jerry!

This week's guest stars - THE TEMPTATIONS!

  2. Have to confess I wasn't familiar with most of these numbers from the T's catalogue, but they are most certainly all smooth and cool, and will hopefully bring down the fevered political temperature of recent days as you enter the home run.

    Have a fine w/e, all the five of you.

    2. You can bet that IF he loses [and I still fear that it is an 'if'] he'll continue his self congratulations at having 'defeated' Covid, Covid, Covid - and then after Jan, psychopath that he is, it'll be daily tweets, or more frequently, at what a terrible job J.B. is doing at NOT defeating Covid, Covid, Covid.

  3. Ah, The Temptations! I learned to dance to their music. Unfortunately, my sister taught me their routines, which meant I always looked like a back-up dancer.

  4. I enjoyed the third one how perfect since we're back at our beach place for the month to get these old bodies out of the four walls into another. I had no idea the Temptations had that many songs. And how perfect for the birthday of another temptation!!!!!

  5. They were always hit or miss in Central PA, always seeming to play 2nd fiddle to the Four Tops and their heavy Motown Sound. Nice background. Another facet of the inner you?

  9. The Temptations, SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!! The soundtrack of my much younger life. I Wish it Would Rain is a particular favorite of mine. The opening notes have always given me a shiver. Pre and post David Ruffin sound a little different, but it's all great!
    Maddie doesn't age. He has a picture up in an attic somewhere doing that for him.
