You got me singing the blues

We brought Alexa away with us on this trip. Having discovered that The Animals had new albums out this year, we instructed Alexa to play one of them to us and I have to say that I am enjoying it thoroughly. Old material in a new compilation, I believe. I think that I had completely forgotten just how much that I love their music.

      Sorry, I missed this comment previously. I would add that I have lived a long life and met but two people who looked and behaved as Christians.

However, common sense would still tell me that there is no Supreme Being, o f whatever ilk.

I enjoy reading your comments, please pass the time of day
