Gotta Dos...Moving To...Beach Writing

Jan 21 | Posted by: Bill Whyte |

Tuesday morning and it’s still chilly in Music City.  We even had a little spitting snow yesterday with a little more this morning.  How many days til Spring Training? 



I had the day off from any appointments or any “got to” stuff.  One of the blessings of this part of my life right now…having control a bit more of what I want to do as opposed to what I “gotta do”.  And the rest of this week is pretty full of “gotta do” but “wanna do” stuff.  And if you can figure out what that means let me know.



The impeachment trial begins today.  I’m pretty sure if they were allowed to put up bleacher seats in the Senate you could sell tickets and hot dogs and coke.  Geez.  I’ll pass.  I’ll read how it turns out…y’all go on without me. 


I’m for a Gettysburg re-enactment myself.  Democrats coming out of the hedges on one end Republicans on the other and meet in the middle.  Something political folk have forgotten how to do.  Meet in the middle.



A new study suggests that drinking 2% milk may significantly speed up the aging process. One would hope (since I did drink the stuff) that it’s “truth in advertising” taking over and that the actual aging has only sped up 2% for me.  These days if I do drink milk…I use Almond Milk over a huge bowl of Lucky Charms cereal.  In my mind it balances out the calories…right?



According to United Van Line… folks are moving from New Jersey than any other state in the Union at the moment.  And the number one move in state is Idaho.  Folks are moving out the east and California in general. Florida is back in the top 10 for the first time in awhile as a state folks wanna go to.  I’m betting a lot of those decisions to leave the East for Florida happen about this time of year when the temps drop below freezing.  Don’t blame em’.



One millionaire suggests that we all need to become an EXPERT at something.  That’s the best way to get rich.  Be really really good at one thing.  Not fair to mediocre at a dozen like me. 


And incidentally, that will be the name of my new band.  Fair To Mediocre.  We’ll be making T-shirts shortly. 


I do love what Helen Gurley Brown said about money  “Money, if it does not bring you happiness, will at least help you be miserable in comfort”.



So this morning my lower back hurts.  And that’s the only time one will find me down on the floor on a yoga mat (without a goat) doing yoga stretches.  This morning I read where CBT can help with that.  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  What’s that?


Best I can understand, you go pay large bucks to see a therapist who will then yell at you, “You’re Back Doesn’t Hurt”!  Swipe your credit card and your healed.



Only a wife could tweet this kind of truth.  “It’s amazing humans can learn something new everyday.  For example, every Tuesday my husband learns our son has soccer practice at 6 pm”.



I’m back at a songwriting table with my Missouri buddy Becky Denton and her talented husband Will Denton.  It will be my first time seeing them since they got back from Key West at a big Trop Rock gathering where they tried out a couple of beach tunes we wrote together, “Take Me Back To Tybee” and this one “Two Bags One Beach”.  So with the temps under freezing?  Good day maybe to go the beach again with those two and warm up.


Have a great Tuesday!
