It's that time of the year again.

I had my annual call from the folks who line up the volunteers this week so I know it's getting close to time for the 2004 King Biscuit Blues Festival. This event makes our little area swell almost to bursting for a few days every October.

I'll be icing down and selling some of those cold buds again this year. Who'da thought that all those years of fetching and bringing a "cold one" for Himself would'a led to this? (He just wishes I'd still fetch and bring to him!)

So, if ya'll find yourself without anything to do on Oct. 7,8, and 9th, come on ovah here and let me sell you a "cold one", grab some alligator on a stick from a vendor nearby, and then you can go pull yourself up a piece of levee and sit and listen to some of the best Blues music in the south.

Just came across this exercise suggested for seniors,
to build muscle strength in the arms and shoulders.

It seems so easy, so I thought I'd pass it on some of
my younger friends.

The article suggested doing it three days a week.

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you
have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5-LB. potato sack in each hand, extend your
arms straight out from your sides, and hold them there
as long as you can.

Try to reach a full minute, then relax.

Each day, you'll find that you can hold this position
for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-LB. potato

Then 50-lb. potato sacks, and eventually try to get to
where you can lift 100-lb. potato sack in each hand
and hold your arms straight for more than a full

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato
in each of the sacks.
