As you probably know, I’m a technological freak. I can’t help it; it’s in my genes. Even though I run on a restricted budget, like many modern retirees are, I try to buy the latest gadget I can get my paws on. If not, I’ll read about its features and pretend it’s mine lying somewhere in my home office. They say old people don’t appreciate technology, well, I’m sorry to say that is not true across the board. Yours Truly is at least one example.
Anyway, I’m a proud owner of a Retina Display Apple iPad which I enjoy immensely. The things you can do with this baby are absolutely infinite. Lately I’ve been listening to country music around the house; mostly on the back porch. The sound is decent and old country music transport me to my youth in Changuinola, where the bananas grow. Back then we had many American neighbors from the south who were passionate about this genre of music.
Singers like Patsy Cline, Willy Nelson, Tom T. Hall, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams, The Judds, Kenny Rogers, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton are my favorites, but the list of wonderful country singers can go on and on. Listening to their voices again, after a long period of silence, is a wonderful experience. It’s amazing how music can make you travel instantly to your past and activate your previous life experiences.
Usually I listen to 181 FM Highway 181 HPR1: Traditional Country. At this moment, they’re playing, “Suspicious Minds” by Elvis Presley. Who can forget the King of Rock and Roll?
Below are a couple of pictures of my Apple iPad and Amazon Kindle Fire playing music in our living room during a lazy Sunday afternoon.
The curtains came up and George Jones—The Grand Tour—is singing under the bright lights. Yep, country music is my cup of tea. Good Day.
