Saturday I had one of those choices to make.
I need to mail an item at the Post Office and also need to buy stamps. When the clerk asked what kind of stamps I wanted? I almost said “I don’t care” but then I looked to my right and saw the little display of the different stamps available.
Oh boy I had a tough choice to make.
First thing I saw was an Elvis stamp, and being born and raised in Memphis I was saying to myself support your home town!
Beside that my cousin Brenda would hunt me down for not choosing Elvis. Well Brenda start your hunt! I didn’t chose Elvis but dang I love the King!
Then I notice John Lennon. The Beatles, I play the Beatles every day and it’s John Lennon. Besides that my other cousin Randal and one of my best friends Ken would hunt me down if I didn’t chose John Lennon. Well now I have 3 people hunting me down.
What did I choose? Well before I tell you let me explain. I grew up loving all forms of music. Elvis, John, Roy Orbison, Ricky Nelson, Bachman Turner Overdrive Grand Funk, Earth Wind and Fire, Fleetwood Mac. Heck I even enjoyed some country. Conway Twitty, the Sattler Brothers and Ronnie Millsap.
But I would say that the music that really was my favorite growing up. Motown and classic R and B. Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, The Temptations, The Four Tops and as I get a little older Marvin Gaye! As a singer, he was so good at putting emotion into his songs. Then as a songwriter do you get much better than Mercy, Mercy Me.
I would have been happy with choosing Elvis, or John Lennon but on Saturday morning I had just heard “Ain’t no Mt high enough” Marvin and Tammy and I just had to choose.
Now if Batman would have been a choice we might have another blog post today. But I have a book of Batman Stamps framed at my house.
