Hall & Oates

The other day I heard this song. Hall and Oates were, I thought, under appreciated by music critics. Their music still holds up thirty-one years later.

Daryl Hall & John Oates "One on One" 1982.

King's Court

I was helping with the estate sale today and came across a King's Court card game. My brother-in-law invented, marketed, and found investors for this game. As I recall it was around 1982. 

About a year ago I was talking to an inmate who knew the game very well and used to play it with his wife and another couple. He's now doing time for killing the man he used to play King's Court with for having an affair with his wife.

Sheet Plastic Video

I came across a weird little music video of Bob Schneider's "Wish The Wind".

Red Waves

The car buyer is my former boss. He called me right before wife and I left for the County Clerk's Office to transfer the car title to tell us there was a body in the parking lot. "We're walking out the door right now."

Two  minutes later we pull up in the parking lot, wife in her car. I'm driving the car to be sold. There were three police cars and a knot of Officers milling around behind the yellow tape next to the deceased car. They lifted the cover off of the body and put the body into a body bag while the other police were going through his car. There was a very large pool of blood next to the car. It was an apparent suicide in which the got out of his car, got on his knees and probably shot himself in the head causing the large amount of blood.

 By the time we changed the car title and walked out, a fireman was hosing down the parking area, diluting the blood. It had a metallic smell to it. The fire truck left and it was another day in Louisville. A car moving slowly through the lot causing a small wave of red water.
