Downtown Dave’s Thought(s) For The Week

Well, this weeks thoughts of the week really hit home. I really enjoy doing these posts and sharing with everybody my thoughts of the week and the weekly band schedule. I try to do the posts on Monday or Tuesday but for the last 10 days I have really been out of sorts.

As you get older you also get stubborn. That is because you get set in your ways. But you also forget the most important thing in life? TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH.

So, about 2 weeks ago a started getting a cough. So, I just started to take the over the counter meds thinking I would snap out of it in a few days. I was taking 2 naps a day and one day I woke up and my legs felt like I just ran a marathon. What did I do? Well I kept on working and taking the over the counter meds.

This feeling bad stopped me from going out to listen to all of the great music on the Island over the last week. I stayed home on Friday night for the first time in 7 years. On Saturday night I could not stand it so I went out but could only last for 2 glasses of water and maybe 30 minutes. So on Tuesday I also decided I would work out in the sun for 4 hours and try to sweat out the bug that invaded my body. Well I did get weeding done but that almost killed me. So finally Wednesday I went to the mainland and they said I had bronchitis. That is nothing to cough at. Just after the 1st day of pills I fell a lot better. So the post will be earlier next week with some reviews.

So my thought of the week is really that we have no guarantees in life. One minute you can feel great and then your world goes boom. So if you are feeling good right now lets take advantage of it by making a trip to Put in Bay. The summer is at the halfway point. Do not miss out on getting away and enjoying great live music. I am sure if you feel great right now Put in Bay will make you feel fantastic and you will have memories to last a lifetime.
