    Default Morning Coffee

    If you have sufficient/appropriate audio & graphics capability.

    In the following playlist, pick one at random, then click "shuffle" & "repeat playlist".

    Then, in a second window, choose something from this other playlist, mute the sound and make it full-screen.

    Then relax and sip that coffee.

    I was reading about The Beast of Bray Rd, when I found this song.

    Looking thru some old pic's the other day....of Rondys past....
    Came across a singer in one of pic's that played at our fires....for many years.

    When the Kumbaya crowd turned it....the party would start to turn to other music....and OP drinks (other people's).......

    Add to the RATTW post and every one problems....on song came to mind and stuck there....and still chuckle every time I think about it...

    The singer I was referring to....has been a full time trader, and part time musician.....Richard "Blackhawk" Kapusta....for 30+ years.

    Just saw him and a couple more old timers, at our rondy, a couple of weeks ago.. Still a trader.

    We were hashing over the many years of good times past and trying to one up each other on surgery's, afflictions....and foods we can't eat any more....

    One year he had a video made on VHS (long time) filmed at a rondy we attended....and he did some casettes as well.

    I was surprised to see some one up loaded his signature song to the interwebs

    Even though he wouldnt take credit for it, he also had a hand in helping Steve Goodman write "You Never Even Called Me By My Name".
