Purple Haze was in my brain,
lately things don’t seem the same,
actin’ funny but I don’t know why
‘scuse me while I kiss the sky.
— Jimi Hendrix
I don’t know about you. But, for me, summer just wouldn’t sound the same without listening to legendary guitar riffs from Jimi Hendrix. His lyrics and melodies always make it easier to wait for some delicious ribs to smoke up all hot and tasty on the grill.
Enjoy your time soaking up the sunshine with family and friends as the U.S.A approaches its celebration of independence on July 4. Temps. north of the “D” are approaching 100 this weekend, which calls for plenty of Hendrix tunes, ice-cold Bell’s Oberon and something cool to splash in.

In my old neighborhood in Chicago, I lived on a street that held a block party every July 4th. Ready or not (or like it or not!), all awoke that morning to the blaring of Jimmy Hendrick’s National Anthem. Happy weekend!
I had Jimi’s version of the National Anthem in my head when I wrote this. Our neighbors have been at the whole July 4 bit for more than a month, now. People around here like their tnt.
