Remember this young man's name ....Matt Chalk from Groveport, OH
Tonight I worked for the Midland Theater to celebrate the performance of a 75 year young Buddy Guy! What an incredible experience...the man just tore the place up ...he honored Jimi Hendrix...John Hooker...Isaac Hayes... Eric Clapton just to name a few of America's honored guitarists of the century. I even asked and received a guitar pick used by this giant of a talent. Near the end of the concert...without an intermission he invited a young man from Groveport,OH up on stage and the two played "Smoke on the Water" and just played together like real champions. This is a night that I will never forget...Johnny Lang got his start working with Buddy Guy in Chicago. I am sure Matt Chalk and his mother and father will never forget this unforgettable night in Newark, Ohio. The whole audience gave him a rounding standing ovation!
I worked in my studio to clear the decks ...well a wee bit at least and before I knew it I had spent six hours. YEAH I can see the bottom of my desk surface! And I am ready to work in a more orderly manner tomorrow!!! I am going in early to paint and finish my button exchange with Button Floozies so they can go into the mail in the afternoon! Have a great week and continue to count you blessings! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen
