This one's for you, Grandma

Norma Jean's 1978 version of "Having a Party" wasn't necessarily the song I was going to share today, however I need a little cheering up with my Grandmother passing away this morning and I couldn't think of another song (outside of an Arthur Russell track) that put's me in a better mood. I haven't been close to my grandmother for quite sometime, however I definitely have a wealth of great memories, especially the times when I was a kid and she used to take me and my sister to Bodega Bay to play in the sand or the time we drove up the Oregon coast. It's safe to say, she will definitely be missed by all of those that loved her. And so here's to you Grandma, today we celebrate you, your life, and those lasting good memories.

My condolences to you and yours.

I can't think of a nicer sentiment than some sweet smooth Norma Jean. Even mentioning Russel gives your grandmother mad props.

Have a good one man.
