SoCal here I come!!!!

I'm flying into L.A. Thursday 1/27 for The Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona. I'll be there til 2/2. If anyone has any suggestions for Rockabilly shows, I'd love to hear 'em. I'm gonna be hitting Tonga Hut on Sunday & Don The Beachcomber's on Monday. Boy, I can't wait! They're calling for 9"-12" of snow in Boston from Wednesday night into Thursday morning. I'm flying out at 9:05, I hope my flight doesn't get screwed up. If it does you may see me on the evening news. "Lunatic comandeers 747" haha!

Wanda Jackson

I never did report on the Wanda Jackson show I attended. She was an hour & a half late because of traffic between NYC & Boston, but nobody left, even though we were offered our money back. When she did arrive & took the stage, she immediately launched into Mean, Mean Man. WOW! I couldn't believe that voice was coming from a woman her age. She was amazing. After a few songs, she got a little raspy, but after her husband, Wendall brought her a glass of wine she was fine & played a full show. What a sweetheart this woman is! She sounded great & entertained the crowd with many anecdotes & stories from her long career. After the show, Wanda sat & signed autographs for over an hour. If you haven't seen her & you get the chance, you must! I'm so glad I skipped hockey that night & witnessed this legendary lady in person. I went home with a Wanda Jackson T-shirt & an autographed 8x10. Mark Gamsjager & The Lustre Kings opened the show & backed up Wanda flawlessly. I proudly hung Wanda's pic in The Galaxy Diner.

I'm Back & Looking for blogging help

My lack of computer literacy had me a bit discouraged for awhile, but now I'm determined to improve & maintain my blog. I got a new camera for Christmas, but my ancient computer can't upload the pics from it, so I'll have to continue to use my old camera 'til I can afford a new computer. My biggest problem right now & the reason I haven't signed up to watch a lot of blogs I'd like to is because when I do, it doesn't include my avatar & lists my name as my e-mail instead of my blog name. Can anyone tell me why this happens.
