Ok, tomorrow is Monday. Across the nation, school will start for a zillion children. And what about the principal, teacher, librarian, counselor, custodian and cook? Are these workers catching the blues tonight as they think about the morning? And what about the zillion workers who DO NOT work with children, but they work with grown folk who sometimes resemble children in a myriad of obstinate ways? Are these workers catching the blues tonight as they think about the morning? If so, I’ve got the remedy. I call it, “A BLUES YOU CAN USE.” Here is Willie Dixon and Koko Taylor singing, “Wang, Dang, Doodle.” I heard this song 20 years ago, when Rufus Thomas played it one Saturday morning on WDIA. It made me feel good then. It will make you feel good now. So, don’t cry about the morning, when there is still some time to dance.
