Blueberry Hill
by Louis Armstrong
28. A song by an artist with a voice you love

Happy National Blueberry Pie Day!

Blueberries are one of the only natural foods that are truly blue in color.
The pale, powder-like protective coating on the skin of blueberries is called “bloom.”
A blueberry extract diet improves balance, coordination, and short-term memory in aging rats.
Blueberries are the official berries of Nova Scotia, Canada.
The anthocyanin present in blueberries is good for eyesight.

Blueberries and Louis Armstrong have something in common with shaka: I didn't give either of 'em a chance while growing up but love 'em now. Blueberries are a more recent like for me. I get some meals shipped to knee to me do to my disabilities to supplement my shortcomings and being able to cook all of the time., especially breakfast, have this blueberry crisp dessert that is fantastic. Sometimes I will even order a meal that I do not like just to have that. It's open my mind to try and other fruits that I have not tried.

I had a lifeguard friend that I used to visit daily and hang out with. After so much talking with each other I finally had the guts to ask her out and she said yes! The first date was adventurous to say the least. I was hypnotized during the show buy a comedian pull out of myself in front of a couple hundred people. When I got back to our table she was three sheets to the wind, sloshed, plastered, buzzed, feeling no pain, crocked, you name it I could go on lol. I didn't even really notice this until we were dancing at the fancy Club next door. She was sitting on a bar stool spinning around in her high heels and mini skirt having a great time. I basically had to carry her back to the parking garage and put her into my car. That was not hard to do because she was a petite girl.

To this day it amazes me that she asked the Lifeguard test that they gave on the military base that she worked. They would have to swim the length of an Olympic size pool underwater carrying a heavy brick. That was just one part of the test. When I got her home I carried her to her door and open it and took her inside and put her to bed and her studio apartment. I took her shoes off and found a sheet to cover her up. Before I left she told me I could have her Louis Armstrong album. I wasn't really interested in that but I will listen to anybody at least once. That became one of my favorite albums and I can't remember which album it was. I just know it has the tune 'Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby'.

I want to check up on her at work the next day and fortunately she was just very very tired and not hungover too much to save a marine from drowning if need be. She will forever be in my thoughts for introducing me to the voice and trumpet of the Great Satchmo.

shaka's #cheese FRAILTY was no longer on the DVR yesterday so that may be replaced by the certified shaka classic KILLER KLOWNS FROM OUTER SPACE or even MOSCOW ON THE HUDSON since the Robin Williams character is such a huge Armstrong fan.
