    RIP someone or another

    RIP, Steve Cash, one of the founders of the long forgotten (by most people) Ozark Mountain Daredevils, which was always one of my guilty pleasure bands from high school onward. For whatever reasons, certain music just grabs you, even if nobody else is really into it. I just always loved their sound and the fact that they were a bunch of rednecks from Missouri having fun touring around together. Didn't make a lot of money, barely enough to keep playing, but that's all they cared about. The pic below is a screen shot from the band's Facebook feed. I've just Googled it, and his death is not even in the news yet. Don't suppose it will make a big splash even when it does get there, but his music meant a lot to me and they won't be as good without him.

    Really sad about Ginger. Dude was amazing, and never one to be short on self confidence. I liked his style. https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/ginger-baker-creams-volatile-drummer-dies-80-66092227?fbclid=IwAR091lehKgnhe-_ggJRLAB9cc99GEb4nut7KwUoaU7rmTDJXH-od0WxVnFk

    Happy Birthday Wayne!

    Hey, thanks guys. It was nice. I've been telling people it's like Heinz 57 varieties, this one being old and fat! Always good to have another one though...

    Oh fuck, this one hurts bad... Ric Ocasek dead at age 75. The Cars... man did I ever love their music. High school stuff, a big part of the soundtrack in my life. https://www.pennlive.com/entertainment/2019/09/ric-ocasek-lead-singer-of-the-cars-dead-at-75.html

    It's even harder to believe that it's been 7 years.

    And now what did you do TODAY?

    There may be other options for moving your toy hauler that would also work for moving the waverunner. The dolly that I linked to is more of a light weight aluminum "cart" type of thing with soft rubber air filled tires that are wide and bouncy, so they won't get stuck in the sand. The dolly is buoyant, so it's not hard to sort of slide it into place. Then the person on the waverunner can kill the engine and jump off and everyone then pushes the loaded dolly out of the water. It can be a little tricky if there is a lot of wave action, or if you don't have extra hands to help, but it's usually pretty easy. Unfortunately, it wouldn't work to move your toy hauler. It's nowhere near strong enough and the soft rubber tires aren't made to carry a lot of weight. These are really used mostly by people who live on the beach and watersports businesses that can chain them all up to a coconut tree and leave them out overnight. So it's easy in and easy out without having to back a trailer. They basically never leave the sand. But they're not expensive and would work if your trailer has a ramp door and you can install a winch in the front. Then it would just be a matter or securing the waverunner itself (while resting on the dolly) with ratchet straps to the floor of the trailer on each side. That said, this kind of lightweight dolly probably isn't rated for sitting inside of a trailer, loaded with a waverunner, and going down the road at highway driving speeds for long distances. It would probably be Ok for short local trips.

    RIP, Art Neville, 81, another New Orleans legend: https://www.npr.org/2019/07/22/744150388/art-neville-a-new-orleans-icon-dead-at-81?utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=npr&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_term=nprnews&fbclid=IwAR04PIsyQsEemtDGY2vAH5rARmPLgTCwuZO-_u4zefbNfbx9zTgkWvd5vN8&fbclid=IwAR0Gj4Z7x06VpKbdo8OaaKYz-8EH_KeNBnKmtgAa6kpdVheLg2sA7aF64FY

    You would also need something like this: https://floridasailcraft.com/product/bigfoot-4-wheel-beach-dolly/ and also a winch installed within your trailer to allow you to have a controlled loading and unloading process.

    Oh no! This is going to be a tough one for many of us... Dr. John gone at 77. Heart attack. Truly an original. He was a legend. https://www.theadvocate.com/new_orleans/news/article_a962e500-8877-11e9-991d-2f4782c02ae0.html That's going to be one hell of a funeral procession... they do huge send offs in New Orleans for even half famous musicians. This one will be epic, as it should be.

    RIP Leon Redbone, a unique character in the world of music, gone at 69 (or 127, read here): https://variety.com/2019/music/news/singer-leon-redbone-dies-at-69-1203229012/?fbclid=IwAR3FXAvS7_OtOc7HDqU9CRqAFkcMiuAc2Ivc3SfrWESOWpM_k4GR6meCBGU

    RIP Bart Starr, 85, quarterback for the Green Bay Packers in their Super Bowl years in the early to mid 60s. RIP, Bill Buckner, 69, a great baseball player for the Dodgers, Cubs and Red Sox, infamous for the routine ground ball the went between his legs while playing first base for the Red Sox in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. He lived it down with a great deal self effacing humor. Fuck dementia.
