So, yeah, my mom died back in April. It wasn’t something that was expected even though she had some health issues over the last year. It should be surprising that I’ve been in a little funk ever since. I’ve been busy closing accounts, or changing accounts, figuring out home ownership, landed a part-time job, took a little vacation, whatever. I haven’t been reading much or doing anything artsy related. No motivation/inspiration. Whatever. I have come to the conclusion that I need to finish making the house mine now. Maybe the funk will leave when this stops being my parents house and is more to my taste than mom’s. Not that I won’t keep a few of her things but I hate lemon scented cleaning products so I got rid of all of those today. I did so while listening to The Drifters, ‘Golden Hits’ (Atlantic, 1968) rather loudly because the only people around to complain are a dog and two cats. And they don’t complain.
Does anyone not like the golden oldies? Are they really golden? I dunno but ‘Golden Hits’ is all of The Drifters songs I’m familiar with and a few I’m not all in one place. Not that I’m going to rush out and, er, download the album. There’s a good chance it’s already in my mom’s iTunes collection and I will swipe it from there.
Side note: This was to be my first album using Apple Music. Humorously, iTunes didn’t have the album and I listened to it on YouTube.
