Easy Ed's Broadside

Exploring music without a map.

Since 2009, Ed has shared his thoughts on ND about music that touches him, and rambled hither and yon about what else is on his mind.

Lucinda Williams: Far Beyond the Blue

Hell of a song...breathing and tension...good as any description I've heard...

Smith Brothers Cough Drops...they had assorted fruit flavor too...I bought a box of the cherry ones a couple of months ago when I wasn't sick, just for the memory...

Get well Ed...

Vicks VapoRub. Although it is "topical ointment" I had an uncle who ate the stuff.  Not sure it cured him, but it didn't kill him. He lived into his 90's. Get better EasyEd!

My wife had a cold a couple of weeks ago...she asked me to get her some VapoRub...I didn't even know they still made it, but they do...I had it "topically" many times as a kid...never ingested any, but all I brought for lunch today was a banana and some yogurt...when I go home to let the dogs out I may give that a shot...

My uncle was bald as a cue ball. That might have been a side effect of eatin' the V-Rub but maybe not. One thing is certain it sure didn't cause him to grow hair!

Maybe I won't then...my hair is in the thinning category as is...or I guess I should say I'm at that point in life where it disappears where you'd like to keepit and grows where you don't want it (had to buy a trimmer for the ears, nose, etc)...

How did we get here in a Lucinda post...?  Guess it is easy when Ed leads the discussion down nostalgia road...

 

without a doubt...

I haven't thought about Vicks Vaporub in years.My brother had asthma as a child and got the treatment quite often.Luckily I got the treatment rarely.Ed,I wish you better health.

 

Thanks for that, Hal!
