Absolute Blue Invitation 1/27/17 - 1/30/17
Absolute Blue Serves
It is at times like these that we find ourselves proud and a little surprised that we are still Americans. And that Absolute Blue is considered one of the true Great American Bands. But don’t take our word for it, listen to LBJ, where upon his inauguration was heard to say metaphorically, “Do these socks match?” And the great Winston Churchill no doubt had us in mind when he said “We will play in the trenches, we will play on the beaches, we will play in the streets,” etc. The key is that while they may not be talking at us, they are speaking to us in meaningless and sometimes incoherent ways. Time and time again, after being knocked down, we get right back up, mostly just in time for dinner. And when the going gets tough, we will not be held liable, or reliable for that matter. And we have never failed to inspire, like that time we ran into those European guys at the beach and Bill said, “Damn the four speedo’s, pull tweed instead!” We never knew what that meant until just now. Ok, maybe not even then. But the key is that when asked to serve we have done so dutifully if not beautifully:
-Kevin served honorably in the US Navy and many times came close to almost getting on an actual boat. He would have received the Meritorious Service Medal for Doing Good if such a thing existed.
-Don applied for service in the Army when he thought they were looking for a Sue Goodman, his high school girlfriend. He then signed on to the Army Preserves, thinking it was a military jelly of the month club.
-Skip served many times on his coed tennis team.
-Bill served fries with that.
-Tom served 3 to 5.
Join us for a doubleheader this weekend at Keith’s Oyster Bar at Cocoa Beach Pier Friday and Saturday, 6 to 10….
