April 2020 News!

My blog is late this month. I’ve been hiding in the corner with the Wheat Thins and a box of chocolates. I have discovered that watching the news has to be done carefully, with an exit strategy ready for when I start to panic. 

Actually, I am a homebody who loves to sit in my studio and learn new music as well as practice the old stuff. It’s what I do to avoid the things I should be doing. Now I have the time to do both… 

I miss seeing you all, and performing for you as well. I am playing live on FaceBook on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 6:30 CST. You can find me on Facebook as “John Rankin” or “John Rankin Music”. There’s more than one John Rankin musician out there, so make sure you look for the most distinguished looking one. 

I hope you are well, and taking every precaution. If you’re like me, and I know I am, you’re worried about health and the economy. It’s like Katrina but for the whole world. The federal government response is definitely like Katrina! 

At this time, it’s not fun to be an older person, but there are some benefits. For example: 

THE PERKS OF BEING OVER 50 

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you. 

2. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first. 

3. No one expects you to run -anywhere. 

4. People call at 9 pm and ask, " Did I wake you?" 

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac. 

6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way. 

7. Things you buy now won't wear out. 

8. You can eat dinner at 4 pm. 

9. You can live without sex but not your glasses. 

10. You enjoy hearing about other people's operations. 

11. You get into heated arguments about pension plans. 

12. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge. 

13. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room. 

14. You sing along with elevator music. 

15. Your eyes won't get much worse. 

16. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off. 

17. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service. 

18. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either. 

19. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to manageable size. 

20. You can't remember who sent you this list. 

Patience is a virtue, but it’s always been in short supply. It’s seems like we work to get the time to do the things we say we want to do, and when we finally get the time, we can’t decide what to do first. Well, it’s easier now, because we have the time to knock a lot off that oversized list. Don’t postpone everything until next week; tomorrow will be fine. Do the outside stuff now while the weather is great, but from at least six feet away. 

I’ll write you next month. Be well, keep active, and don’t let anyone or anything discourage you.

    It takes the entire world to investigate the issue that we are in today-over populace, natural corruption, harmony and request, etc. On the off chance that we look profound and wide, this reduces to lack of care and avarice. We should accomplish something before it's past the point of no return. [url=https://www.cleanandshine.ae/]Top house cleaning websites[/url]
