Among the wonderful things available to folks living in Webster (Where life is worth living) is the abundance of weeds. You don’t have to go far to find a wide variety of them, especially in my backyard, which I have made a sanctuary yard for weeds. Occasionally, when they achieve a hight of 2 feet or more, I pull them out (like this guy) but I generally replant them in my neighbor’s yard. He seems to enjoy them as much as I do.
I thought it would be a video of someone pulling weeds . . .
You must have been thrilled to see it then!
Why can’t I have a neighbour like that?! What a talent.
I try to remain anonymous when I transplant weeds so I usually wait ’till he goes out.
I like the focus on the roots instead of top. A cool and different view. Great contrast with the background. Awesome guitar!
Thanks, Howard. The background is an old black cutting board made of compressed paper.
I saw Sonny Landreth when I lived in Minnesota and have been a fan ever since.
You covered a bunch of bases today, Ken. First, you posted a cool photograph. Second, you made me laugh. Third, you linked me to music I’d never heard before and really liked!
I’m glad you enjoyed this post, Linda. I’ve been a fan of Zydeco music for a long time. Sonny puts a rock spin on it but the roots are very apparent and his band is outstanding.
Your commentary is as enjoyable as the image. Is Sonny Landreth really your neighbor? Lucky you! (Looks like his Wikipedia entry is out of date.)
Thanks, Alan. No, Sonny is not my neighbor. I would have to sell my guitar if he were.
Guess I’m missing something. Who is your neighbor — another Zydeco musician?
My neighbor on my East side is not, as far as I know, a musician at all, much less a Zydeco fan. He is into Classic rock, mostly. I know this because I can hear his radio in his garage when he leaves the door open. It doesn’t bother me at all. In fact, I feel blessed to have great neighbors all around me. But as far as I know, none of them listen to Zydeco.
GOOD TIMES! Do you do the Zydecoe shuffle over to the neighbors, weeds in hand? I can picture it! (That photos has a lot of energy!). Thanks for the fun!
Thanks, Lynn. My shuffeling days are over. My next big project is to get my guitar fixed. I’ve sort of been slacking off practicing and using the guitar as an excuse. Not good.
Do it! 🙂
I had never heard of Sonny Landreth but I’m a fan now! Guys like that make playing the guitar look too easy…leads schmucks like me to think I can play too.
Love the weed story and the photo, by the way! 😉
Thanks, Tom. I first saw Sonny about 16 years ago but he had been around a lot longer than that. His live show was very straightforward but very exciting.
