Get Well Soon, joe shikspack!
Hey everybody. I'm filling in for joe tonight and here to send him a get well soon card from all of us and to let you know that Evening Blues might be on a short hiatus while joe recovers. Unfortunately, he's got a serious case of the New Year's Blues! Actually his spirits are pretty good right now but he landed in the hospital on Saturday with what seems to be a problem with gallstones/pancreatitis -- no definite diagnosis yet. So he's spending his New Year's in the hospital where he says he is getting excellent care and is feeling much better today than last night and earlier today.
While he is recovering, we'll either arrange to cover his diaries for him or put the series on hiatus, whatever joe thinks is best. So if you don't see Evening Blues for a bit, stay tuned as he will be back soon, or if you see it being published by someone else, you'll know why.
So here are a few blues tunes for you for New Year's and all of our best wishes go out to you and yours for a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year!
P.S. When I heard from joe this afternoon, he said that he will try to stop by in the comments tonight depending on how he is feeling. He has a laptop there and connectivity but understandably the meds, IV, his condition and all of that make it tentative but he'll read the comments when he can.
