Some people you meet seem ordinary. That is not necessarily the truth. For example, we have been going to the local flea market for years and have become friends with a lot of the vendors. Some have even been to our place and visa versa. One of them, who we thought we knew well, turned out to have a past a lot different than what he is doing now. At his tables at the flea market, he is always playing music and sometimes he uses his rich deep bass voice to sing along with the recorded music. At times, he sells karaoke units and sings along with them. And guess what, he is even older than I am!!
I just found out last weekend that when he was young, he had formed a quartet and they backed up a lot of singers who where recording records in a studio in Houston, either for demos or for actual publication. One of those singers that his group backed up on some recordings was Kenny Rodgers. The only time that I ever sang with a super star was in my car with the radio playing. Now he has his voice on some of Kenny's recordings. Maybe our friend is on one of your Kenny Rodgers recordings? Remember back on one of my old blogs when I told you about a fellow who also sets up at this flea market who used to be the pilot of the Good Year blimp? It is surprising the interesting people you meet at our local flea market. The sun is shining and it is a another beautiful morning here, and I hope you all will have a great day today, you hear?
