The Metal Deli #105 and boy was I chatty -- find out why!

Here is why I don't like writing blogs:  I've just SAID everything I want to say in the show -- if I write it here will you read this and not listen?  Then what's the point of writing, since I want you to listen?  Or maybe you don't like metal but really DO just like me -- then I don't want you to miss what I have to say because you don't like the music!  Oh, such decisions!

 
So here goes for The Metal Deli #105:
 
First and foremost, my love and heartfelt congratulations go out to JD DONATELLI from PADDED ROOM on the birth of his grandson.  I remember being my paternal grandfather's "favorite" and just inhaling that love, and I wish that upon every child, to know the unending love of a grandparent.  It is so much different than that of a parent's love.  May you both know health and happiness.
 
This was a great 4th of July weekend.  Wanna know why?  Because I really did NOTHING.  I spent time in my "happy away-place" with my extended family, including my cousin. aunt and 3 nephews, and just did nothing.  I read a little, I cooked a little, I enjoyed my nephews a lot.  I walked a lot, to get my foot back into the swing of things.  But really I didn't do anything.  Internet was spotty where I was so I couldn't have worked had I tried.  And though the Deli is my passion, it was good to put it away for awhile, to just rest and enjoy the clouds.  (because there was no sun, though the lake was like glass).
 
Today's Deli #105 is brought to you by:  BAD TRAFFIC coming home, wine and chips.  Normally the Deli is recorded when I first wake up, so I have the whole day to concentrate.  But this time I procrastinated, waited until Sunday when it's due Sunday night, not expecting the 2.5 hour drive to take double-time...  But you know, life throws you a curveball and you just bat a grounder.  Or something like that -- I never was much good at sports.
