Rright, here we are, back from cloudy and humid Suebia in Franconia’s scorching heat. Today we’ll break the 30°C barrier, and, as the weather people predict, the 40 is within reach on Wednesday. All melting to plan.
Last week was good, a taste of life as it should be. My inner housewife awoke & broke out, I cooked eatable stuff, there was even time to walk around and look at things, mostly ruins of once fortified castles – yes, Suebia lies in ruins, but picturesque, quaint even. Franconian ruins tend to being grey, scuffed on the edges, clipped, but Suebian ruins are nicely groomed and look fresh. Like just unwrapped.
The Alb is a good place. The air is clean, temperatures are always four grades lower than in the valley below, at some occasions one drives uphill right into the sky ; the aboriginies are mostly friendly : Dead tourist no good, this one does not come back for more, as they usually do, like me for example.
I returned yesterday, started the vehicle this morning, and there we go. The kids are alright, my codriver also had restful two weeks and finds nothing to moan about, seems we are bound for Days of Wine and Roses.
Here in the version of Wes MONTGOMERY (Ger., Eng.), Melvin RHYNE (Ger., Eng.) and Jimmy COBB* (Ger., Eng.) from the 1963 longplayer Boss Guitar (Eng.).
I hope you enjoy the music, drink enough water, and stay in the shade. And : Do not hesitate to visit that other Sunday Music.
* BTW, Jimmy COBB is the last living member of the group around Miles DAVIS who recorded Kind of Blue in 1959 : This August it will be sixty years since the album was released.
