Rock-A-Billy Festival 2012

Rock-a-Billy is said to be rock-n-roll before it was called that, a fusion of rock, country, and blues. The word is rock (& roll) + hillbilly. The music started right here in Jackson, TN with a quick spread to Memphis, TN. This week, Jackson held the Rock-a-Billy festival, an annual tradition.

I was impressed with the dancers. I can't line dance.

My friend Monica went "in style". Rock-A-Billy Monica:

Musical acts were okay. Some sounded like that man that stays on the mic at karaokee or might be invited to sing at some local event. Others were really good and I'd go to see them again. My favorite was Jerry Lee, Barry, & friend but I don't have a picture of them. My second was that Swedish girl with the taking, sexy voice; oh my!

Today, I have another migraine. I think it started yesterday. It's not as bad as many migraines have been but it's also not kind. This time, I'm at the doctor. Tuesday, I ate some ramen noodles that resulted in an allergic reaction. Friday, my right eye is still swollen. Hence, the doctor's visit. I'll also ask for loratab while I'm here. We'll see what happens.

I'm in the blog reviewing my migraine dates so I can discuss frequency but I'm surprised at how infrequent I've recorded feeling this way. Perhaps I don't get them as often as I think? Still, we'll see what happens.

In one month, I have an art show. Perhaps today I'll start working on new pieces. I have my photoshop instructions book so I can get cracking. We'll see.
