If I had the time to tell you about the morning I’ve had, I would. Let’s just say today started off crazy, and I’ll fill you all in as soon as I can. I need a calming, centering weekend, and I’ve gotta go now to get this work day done. So allow me to leave you with this video.

I’ve been going through a lot of stuff this week. But amidst all of the craziness, there was one really bright spot. This week I interviewed a calypso legend. THE calypso legend. And he sang to me, laughed with me, and turned out to be one of the best interviews I’ve had.

If you don’t already know about The Mighty Sparrow, check out his website to learn more. If you’re like me and grew up on his music and have always loved him, this video will make you LOL.

The overalls! God bless the Seventies.

I will be back with lots of new stuff next week, including the winners of the Dark & Lovely giveaway, bellas. Bear with me. Have a great weekend!

Whenever I hear his music it reminds me of my parents and their friends.

I love Sparrow. BTW, he was born in Grenada, my island home. I have vivid memories of his songs in 1976 for carnival.
