Carolina Blue

Carolina Blue glimmered this week —

On the sultry shores of the south —

On the week of the 4th the sea was murky, dismal, and gray —

Ocean Isle 2016 4th of July

I suppose the lack of storms accompanied with the intense heat

soothed the tumultuous seas.IMG_0016

Thank You, God, both the occasion —Blessed was I  to be there to see.

Amazing how things change in a matter of weeks — or, sometimes  minutes it seems — Shrimp Tales and Tides

Ebbs Flow, Swells Swing, the Sun, Moon, and Stars sing  ever-changing songs of God’s Mood Ring —Beneath the Toiling Sea—Oceans of Emotion— and some of its own — but mostly revealed on the surface… Reflections of you and me.

Shrimp Tales and Tides

I just completed this little project. Well, little may not be the most accurate description seeing as it stands two feet tall and lacks only one pound of weighing twenty.Shrimp Tales and Tides. Folk Art from Carlton's Classic Creations

The inspiration began with the little boat I bought from a lady in the “Lowes” parking lot a while back — and while piddling around the back yard with extra time on my hands I spotted an old swimmers platform weathering away on the back of my real boat. It made the perfect fishing pierFolk Art From Carlton's Classic Creations: "Shrimp Tales and Tides" for the “Old Salt” and his dog to mend nets and spin tales of fish lore and Mermaids on.

I call it —                 “Shrimp Tales and Tides”

Going Down—Freddie King Tribute

Going Down — Or, at least back to April 14th, 2012, when “The Reverend” Billy F. Gibbons, Joe Bonamassa, Derek Trucks, and Dusty Hill honored the third King of the Blues — Freddie King’s, induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Freddie, of no relation to Albert, or BB, passed away at the young age of 42— sixteen months before  “The King”  Elvis Presley died. Not, however, before leaving (like the other 2 Kings of the Blues, Albert, and BB) larger than life legacy and influence in the lives and creativity of countless musical greats as Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Jeff Beck, and Robby Krieger of the Doors.

Right here — Right now — we have the  honor of witnessing  Billy Gibbons, and Dusty Hill of ZZ Top, Joe Bonamassa,( Child Prodigy born three months before Elvis died, opening shows for BB King at age 12) and Derek Trucks ( most recent slide guitar replacement for Duane Allman and Dicky Betts of the Allman Brothers Band, and guitarist for “Tedeschi Trucks” along- side wife Susan Tedeschi) giving homage to one of Ye Three Kings (of the blues)  — Freddie King.
