Happy Labor Day Weekend 2022

Hard to believe its already Labor Day Weekend. We are now 2/3 of the way through the year. Looking back, its been a good year for AverageAndy – Got a new job in last 2021, so have been employed all year, The Mets are doing good and playing exciting baseball. I saw lots of good movies / TV Shows, and read some good books. I was also able to get out and walk a lot – combination of my current work schedule (7:00 AM – 4:00 PM), and the great weather (its been sunny and warm almost every day for the past 3 months).

During my walks, I have been listening to a lot of music (taking a break from pod-casts). I am mixing things up a lot, usually playing 2 to 3 songs from whatever song or artist comes to mind, and then choosing another one. Its made me realize that there are a lot of bands and songs from lots of different genres that I really enjoy, and there are plenty more out there that are not on my radar or my style

Here is a partial list of the artists I have played over the past few weeks: (Mostly on Apple Music)

Neil Young, Foreigner, 38 Special, Queen, Joe Walsh, Boston, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, John Cougar Melencamp, Fleetwood Mac, Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, Free, Electric Light Orchestra, Aerosmith, Stevie Nicks, The Who, Bad Company, Bog Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, Yes, Dire Straits, George Harrison, The Kinks, Def Leppard, The Animals, Journey, Saga, Fastway, April Whine, Belinda Carlisle, Heart, Night Ranger, Steve Winwood, Chris de Burgh, Donnie Iris, John Par, Slade, Marillion, Post Malone, Elton John & Britney Spears, Rainbow, Ratt, Twister Sister, Peter Schilling, Cher, The Bacon Brothers, U2, Dio, Hothouse Flowers, The Tubes, The Police

Even after typing in all these bands, I think of all the bands and songs that I have not listened to and it is overwhelming. Hopefully there are a few more nice weeks before it starts getting chilly (which I can handle) and then dark (Which is depressing even thinking about). At some point, I will list the next set of artists as I continue my musical journey. Any suggestions would always be appreciated (I really like most every type of music, so nothing is off-limits)

The Lehigh Mountain Hawks kick of there 2022 season tonight against a tough Villanova squad. Its crazy that college football has started already. I watched a little of the Penn State / Iowa game last night, but could not get to the end – game was still in the 3rd quarter when I when to bed around 11:00 PM. Its getting harder for me to stay up super late for mostly meaningless games. One NFL Football starts, and college football has started to fall into place, I will probably end up staying up later then I should. (Going to have to get my sleep in now, to be able to watch Mets Playoff games starting at 8:10 PM and going to midnight)

Had a few Fantasy Football drafts – I enjoy playing, but usually don’t do to well, since I like to draft players I like from teams that I like. No matter how much I try, I can never root against the NY Giants because I have a fantasy player on an opposing team. I have actually benched players rather than have to root for them to do well against the Giants. One of these years, I’m going to get lucky and win a championship while actually enjoying watching Giants and my teams win

So have yourself a great Labor Day Weekend Join me in taking some time to go for a walk and listen to music, and catch a college football game of your alma mater or your favorite team. Also take some time to relax before returning to work next week for the home stretch of 2022

More to come, as I seem to be over my writers block and am back to enjoying writing this blog
