Have you ever sang for your supper....?

    Yes actually, I have.  Way, way back in the day, many, many moons ago, I sang with a group called the Nighthawks.  We were on our way to do a tour beginning in Japan.  In Alaska however, I fell ill with a throat condition, my neck looked like a sumo wrestler, chin to chest one big gob. The group went on without me.  I saw an ENT Dr., he ordered me not to speak for 3 months.  It slowly healed, so much for my big break.  My voice changed and became deeper. 
    In Alaska we ate for free a few times at the places we performed. I did impressions of the popular singers of the day.  Surprise, surprise, surprise as that feller in TV used to say.  hahahaha

    Funny how life gives with one hand and takes it back seconds later with the other...:(

    Wasn't meant to be.  I was actually relieved, little scared, another country and all.  I had other responsibilities that came first.

  • Many years ago. I must have been about 15 or 16 years old. It was Shooting Star from Bad Company, and my friend's boyfriend and I had a bet that one would eff up the lyrics (It was a form of drunk Karaoke, although I don't know if Karaoke was a thing back then).   I don't know who won. All I remember is he was singing in his underwear.   Good times.  I forgot to add that the prize was a meal of the winner's choice. Mine was of course pancakes.  I don't remember eating pancakes or even cooking a meal for him, so maybe we both lost. This post was edited by Benedict Arnold at February 10, 2019 7:14 AM MST
