I sit here at the gym, not my regular gym, but a nice one, watching the 49’s game.  I don’t really like football, but I’m humoring a friend and checking it out.  I’m sitting in the lounge area.  Believe it or not, there’s a bar that serves alcohol with four giant televisions, lounge chairs, and a ton of folks who are “OOooing and Awwwwing” at the game.  But it’s not a pub, its a fitness club.

Yes, this is where I’m trying to catch up with myself after being out of town on vacation in Napa over the weekend.  (Feel blessed and mushy right now.)  Worked out for two hours, and hopefully I will see some results, tomorrow.  I never seem to see any changes in my body right after I work out (unfortunately).  Just soreness and fatigue.  But I know, I can’t get anyone to workout for me.  I know I can’t hire someone to lose the extra pounds.  BOOOO….  I don’t have those kind of funds anyways.  So, just going to chip away at it, one day at a time.  And hope for the best.

Here’s a song that reminds me about taking care of myself.  It’s a Thelonius Monk tune, called “Monk’s Blues.”  I recorded this a few years ago in San Francisco with Daryl Green on Drums, Matt Clark on Piano, and David Ewell on Bass. I love those guys.  So killin!  The bass is a little low in the mix at the beginning, but overall, I’m so glad I did this tune.  It’s one of my all time favorites to sing, perform, and share with my peeps.   Hope you enjoy it.
