Saturday Single No. 88

Originally posted August 23, 2008

Well, we got the keys to the house the other evening, and this morning, we took the first carload of stuff over. (We’ve moving the lighter stuff ourselves, leaving the heavy boxes and furniture for the movers on September 2.) And we’ll get another load of two before the heat of the day sets in and then maybe another load when it’s cooled down some this evening.

The heat here in Minnesota is nothing compared to what the Texas Gal has dealt with in her home state or compared to what I’ve dealt with in Missouri. But it’s been humid lately, which is an energy-drainer for both of us, and we’re ahead of the game enough that we can take things at least a little bit slow.

I should write a note about the posting schedule. I plan to continue posting through next Thursday, August 28, and then pause for a week. Our local cable provider has assured us that we will be back on line by Wednesday, September 3. I will certainly be back with a First Friday post on September 5. I might be back earlier than that, but I am not certain.

Do stop by tomorrow, for caithiseach’s Baker’s Dozen of favorite singles, and I will post next week.

In the meantime, here’s a song that feels appropriate. We’re only moving fifty yards and not quite moving to the outskirts – although we’re not far from the city limits already – but we’re certainly moving to a place with more quiet and more trees and less hubbub. That’s kind of what Muddy Waters was singing about in 1971 during his sessions in London (when he had the help of Georgie Fame, Mitch Mitchell, Steve Winwood, Rory Gallagher and a few others).

That’s why “I’m Gonna Move To The Outskirts Of Town” by Muddy Waters from The London Muddy Waters Sessions is today’s Saturday Single.
