Boy howdy, have we made up for our cold, wet, rainy early summer over the last few days with unseasonably warm temperatures; at least the sun is out.
Yeah, yeah, I know. A friend of mine lives in Arizona, and he has been regaling me with tales of triple-digit temps. But this is Alaska. 74 is hot, dammit. We moved up here to get away from warm weather. I know, I’ll get back to you in six months when it’s twenty below.
Tony Bennett was one of the all-time greats, and his passing at 96 last week was saddening. While he’s probably best known for I Left My Heart in San Francisco, the state of that formerly-great city today has kind of soured me on the whole thing.
Instead, here’s another great Tony Bennett tune: What The World Needs Now, from his 1969 album I’ve Gotta Be Me. We’ll miss you, Tony!
