Day 22 is V – A-Z Blog Challenge

V is for Variety and I admit to loving Variety in all things, especially when it comes to books, clothes, food and music. With books I mostly read fiction and it’s a mix of crime fiction, suspense, romance and anything interesting that catches my eye. Clothes have been my secret passion as far back as I can remember—probably a hangover from childhood when I would sneak into my aunt’s bedroom and play dress-up. I love clothes. Period. Food is another biggie with me. It must be attractive, tasty, and nutritious. Vietnamese, Greek and Italian are my favorites, but when it comes to individual dishes, roast chicken with all the trimmings is still No.1.

And as Shakespeare once said, “If music be the food of love…” I love most kinds of music from classical to rock, to r&b, and country, but boy bands/groups are special: Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, The Temptations, The Rolling Stones, and more recently Maroon Five, and the British group, Keane. Last weekend Jersey Boys was on TV. The house was quiet and I was alone, and I just sat there and enjoyed every single second of it.

I have one music story:


A Little Bit Of Country
by Christiane France

When misfortune ended Max Mayler’s career as a singer, he bought The Showtime Bar, an establishment with a long history of giving aspiring artists an opportunity to showcase their talents. It’s where Max got his chance, and he wants to continue the tradition.

Jay Ferman has the exceptional voice and the sexy good looks to make it big, and although he’s been performing every Saturday night for weeks, no one pays him any attention. It could be canned music for all they seem to know or care.

Max quickly realizes the problem is Jay’s failure to truly connect with his audience. But, as Max tells one of his servers, he operates a bar and not a school for wannabees. He likes Jay, but his performance deficit is none of Max’s business.

But will Max make it his business and give Jay some much-needed advice, especially after the men connect in a very personal way?
