Wednesday night, my Mother-In-Law had a severe allergic reaction to like her Blood Pressure medication, and her mouth and tongue was so swollen that her teeth were bleeding... She was taken to ER, and they had to do some sort of surgery, ending with a breathing tube until they could get the swelling down. She spent the night in I.C.U. and came home late Thursday afternoon.
Thursday, after all that, Richie and I rode our Mountain bikes for a while, and went for Sushi... that was tasty. Then we tried to hit the sack early to get up and work out a bit this morning.
If anyone here is a Black Sabbath fan, then you know the stories, and you know the players. Yes, other than Ozzy, none other than Ronnie James Dio at one time was the vocalist. So many of these dudes have been around vocally, more than you realize. I was shocked and awed to accidentally 'dig up' Dio in this very old and very "angelic" 60s tune... Actually, this should be a good one for WTF Friday as well since I actually saw it and went, "WTF?!?!" Get a load of Young Dio!!!

Whew!! That was funny to me. He actually had the makings of a teen heart throb for a moment. WTF happened to him, I cannot explain. Guess his grandmother gave him one too many of those "Evil Eyes".
DIO!! What went wrong buddy?? LOL!
In other nostalgic memories, I was just thinking about my Sister, Vickie this morning, and how during the summer we would spend all day outside (whether we were at her house, or her kids came to my house). The fondest things I remember from Vickie's house were:
- Always something great on T.V. b/c she had Cable
- We always watched the coolest movies together
- She always had Tang, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Frozen Ice Pops, and Little Debbie Cakes
- We always got to go somewhere cool (as I remember it)
- Oscar de la Renta perfume and Mint Dental Floss* (She knows what I mean)
- Anytime they cooked Chili, Spaghetti, Tacos or Al made his "Beer Battered" Chicken/Shrimp
- Just being there because it was "Second Home" to me
Well tomorrow night is my gig, and I'm trying to get amped up and ready, but still nervous since we haven't done a gig in a few months. It'll be fine though. Wish me luck. I hope (doubtfully) that at least some of my friends and family could possibly make it out to see me. I know my Mom would come if she was able to get away from the house long enough, and with Dad in the condition he is in it is extra hard for her... I really wish she could be there. I should've done the Rock Star thing in my 20s like everyone is supposed to and we wouldn't have this problem. :-\
Also, it is Friday the 13th if you didn't realize it??
Oh well... anyways guys, have a kick-ass Friday anyways, and stay safe! Much Love to you and yours.
