Hot Hot Hot

We know, we know. All we can talk about is this heat. But it was 99 in the shade today. And heat makes people do strange the spontaneous ukulele version of Elvira that started mid-practice this afternoon. It was actually sung with name Eldena (she came in a little late), but you get the idea. Turned out to be great fun. So who knows, maybe we'll try it for real one day.

Eldena told us we sounded good as she walked toward our practice room. She also saw several folks sitting out in the heat listening to us practice. If we had known, we would have welcomed them into the cool where we were. We play better when folks are listening.

We're waiting on a weather front to pass through and bring some relief from the heat. Anyone know any "cool" songs to sing in the meantime?

  1. How about "Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening" - another Hoagy Carmichael, Johnny Mercer classic.

  2. Pefect! Now, why didn't we think of that?
