Did I Miss the Mark, or Overstep the Line, that Only You Could See?

Plans are underway for the third, almost annual dart tournament that used to take place in my game room at "the Valley Below" that now will go down at the Kirby Grill in scenic downtown Grand Haven during the last weekend in April. As much as I enjoyed having people over for the tournament, I don't really feel like having people throw darts at my new drywall in my quiet new condo. So, thanks to Dan V. & his connection with the Kirby Grill, our little tradition will continue, albeit 6 months late.

We are in the planning stages still, the best part, & we hashed over the beginning plans over a few rounds of Pabst Blue Ribbons at JW's. A couple more meetings will commence, followed by a practice round to get a lay of the land in a couple weeks at the site of the tourney.

If all goes according to plan, we will make up for 2005's lack of a tournament with two in 2006, the second at it's usual date, the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Let the chucking commence!

Five Favorite Songs of the Day

Don't Start Me Talkin'-Sonny Boy Williamson, His Best, the Chess 50th Anniversary Collection

Good Evening, Everybody! It's King Biscuit Time, friends, with one of the greatest harp (that's harmonica) players of all time, singing one of his best! "I'm goin' down to Rosie's, stoppin' at Fannie Mae's..."

New Madrid-Uncle Tupelo, Anodyne

Things Have Changed-Bob Dylan, Richmond Virginia, 8.15.2004

"I hurt easy, I just don't show it, you can hurt somebody & not even know it."

I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry-Keb' Mo, Timeless (tribute to Hank Williams)

I'm not much a fan of tribute albums, if I really wanted to hear a song, I'd listen to the original, but Keb Mo seems to get to the heart of what ole' Hank was trying to say.

Better Git it in Your Soul-Charles Mingus, Mingus Ah Um

Mingus said it, without saying anything at all.

"let the chucking commence" hopefully its the darts your refering to... I guess the other option would be prefaced with an "UP".

That dart flew right over my head, I guess I'll need to reread to "get it". The Hank Williams tribute caught my attention.
