Will You Ever Be Mine, Donnie Willis (1960) “The music business is full of crooks and thieves and people who’d stab their mothers for a dollar. And then there’s the downside.”
At 19, Donnie Willis co-founded the Vibra-Harps in 1955 and went solo in 1957, recording dozens of records for many labels and writing hundreds of songs during his career. Willis had first-hand experience getting cheated by record companies and partners in the music business, but found greater success as a “Northern Soul” artist in the UK. Eventually he got sick of it and quit.

Still Life With Dove

Saw a young dove outside our garage late this afternoon. I think it knows how to fly, it just doesn’t seem to see the importance of it yet.

He/she didn’t seem too bothered by my presence, so I went back inside for my camera. Somehow it managed to make an arrangement of river rocks, a plastic colander and a rubber football in an inverted Rubbermaid trash can lid. I decided to take a pic from another angle, and when I downloaded it I found this:

I pity the cats that mess with this bird.
