Morning Joy

Psalm 30, verse 5 (KJV): “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

Morning Joy

 
As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been thinking about getting together a Christian Blues band. Started doing more than just thinking about it. Here’s a link to the Morning Joy facebook page, and another link to a more thorough explanation of the concept on my main website.

Biscuit Stuff

 
Cold Biscuit Band is playing both Friday and Saturday next weekend for the Carolina Harley Davidson Dealer’s Association 2011 Rally in New Bern. This weekend is always lots of fun, with good food and good music.

King Of The Blues

 
Sad to say I wasn’t on my game for the King Of The Blues contest and didn’t get selected to go to the store final. Not to be making excuses, but I’ve had a lot on my mind recently and just did not do as well as I can. Can’t blame the judges; they made their decision based on what they saw and heard.

That’s it for now. More later.

Wetness and Faces

It’s been a wet week here in the east.

Thursday Night Drive

 
My drive home from work Thursday night was a little out of the ordinary. I drove through over a dozen spots with standing water completely covering the road, and a couple where the water looked like it was flowing across. It took me over a half hour to drive some five miles or so along roads with very little traffic. Maybe you have a pickup or an SUV but I have my little pirate car, a Toyota Yaaarrrr – is!

Our street had water across it in a couple of places, one just a couple houses away. Later in the evening when the rain finally tapered off to a misty drizzle, some folks were splashing around in the water up there. Our dog, Susie, who normally won’t even walk on wet grass, decided to wade through the driveway next door. Our little girl is growing up!

By Friday most of the standing water was gone from the parts of New Bern I usually see.

43 and 55

 
So we went for a drive this afternoon, heading west on state 55. Over in Fort Barnwell I took a right, thinking on heading through Vanceboro and taking 43 back to New Bern, but ran into several roads that were still marked as closed. We decided to ride down one and verified for ourselves that the road was totally impassable to wheeled vehicles. We did eventually hit 43 and drove through Vanceboro, but it was just a challenge to get there.

Our prayers go out to those whose lives have been affected by the flooding. A little standing water on your street doesn’t seem like much when you see houses that have been sitting in what amounts to a small lake for a number of days.

On The Band Front . . .

 
I decided after our two weeks of YouTube stardom (our three videos have seen about 140 plays in that time) that it was time to do Facebook. So you can now write on our wall. We have a couple of pix up there from a gig we played at the local Harley-Davidson dealer back in the summer. Hope to get more up there soon.
