January 12, 1974 Jim Croce’s album You Don’t Mess Around with Jim hits #1!
I love a good story song and You Don’t Mess Around With Jim is in the form of a blues and takes place in NYC so this song gets a 3 thumbs up!
We’re still in the Poconos and just listened to our son Casey on the Prairie Home Companion Radio show with Chanticleer! He had a couple of solos and sounded unbelievable. We were checking every radio station up here in the woods but couldn’t lock into it so we finally got it streaming on the computer.
It will air again tomorrow so if y’all didn’t hear the show tonight you have another shot on Sunday and I think they probably archive it for a while on their website. Go find it.
I’m all out of firewood and since Claudia won’t let me play with the axe we need to order some. There are guys on craigslist who will deliver but we will have to do it next time we are up here.
I watched the Baltimore/Denver game and it almost gave me a nervous breakdown. Claudia kept yelling downstairs, “What’s the matter?” I couldn’t explain so I’d just yell back, “THE GAME!” and she’d say, “Oh.”
Deep conversations with the wife. That’s why we get along so well!
You Don’t Mess Around With Jim coming right up!
