LadyG remembers 1984!

In this post, I retell a story about Luther Vandross told to me by my son, who, out of respect for his mama, only used the initials of the accompanying expletives.

I, however, say ALL OF THE WORDS right here on Seek The Best Blog!

Believe it or not, this spicy mama raised an absolute gentleman.

My Superman!

But, alas, since this post is based on 1984, it would take me another decade or so to meet him!

Based on a true story; events were slightly reimagined for dramatic effect by the author.


This is 1982 and LadyG learns a hard lesson about appearances including the complexities of marital relationships and the devastating results of repeated infidelity on an entire family.

Although today’s topic is deep, it ain’t gonna stop me from hitting you up with a few of my favorite jams from ’82.

Recently, I did an audio series based on these posts called “Rambling Musical Commentary.” Lately, I’ve noticed, based on the analytics, that these posts have a pretty large viewing; therefore, I will be picking that series back up starting with 1980 on Sunday, April 18th.

Meanwhile, enjoy a reblog of My Jams 1983!

Be forewarned!

There be Adult language afoot! LOL!

Hey, it’s good to see you!  Boy have I got a lot to catch you up on!  I’m so sorry that I haven’t been keeping you posted on all the things that’s been going on.  Can you believe that we’re almost at the end of 1983 and I haven’t really told you anything new?

Well, I guess I better do like Lewis Carroll said, “Start at the beginning, keep going and when you come to the end, stop.”

So let’s start at the beginning.

Do you remember my Uncle Willie? You know the one who lives in Chicago?  Well he died back in March.  Nobody saw it coming because he was kinda young.  They say he was sick with pneumonia, then he just had a heart attack–out of nowhere– and died.
