Blues

I’m in a mood, I guess, and my mind keeps giving me things to see and then jumping to think about something that is completely unrelated to what I just saw. Don’t get me wrong – that isn’t an uncommon occurrence. It’s just becoming more common.

Another view of the stairs from yesterday’s post. I am not sure why they’ve been numbered during construction, but I liked it.

Zombie Holly

Lubbock, Buddy Holly’s hometown, is getting a fancy new performing arts center. I was there last week for a tour and saw this, uh, portrait of Buddy drawn on some gyp board. I decided to name it Zombie Holly.

And, when the facility opens later this year, I am going to have fun looking at the donors’ wall knowing that Zombie Buddy is under there….
