Shelter News Fourteen
Breaking news from the Men’s Shelter on Phinney Ridge. Blues harpist Big Dave Chicago began his North West concert tour by performing several impromptu songs by King, Cotton, and others, this Monday night. David was accompanied by his wife, Karen, on the ukulele and some sweet vocal harmonies on every body’s favorite “I got My Mojo Workin’ But It Just Don’t Work On You”. Also participating in the music fest were the wonderful Chicken Enchiladas which were not available for comment after the show. The concert was in stark contrast to the last Shelter concert which included the hit single “Dancing Queen” sung by a girl’s choir. (I kid you not.) The men were extremely appreciative of both concerts.
All this raises the bar, as they say, for the Shelter volunteers. I’m thinking of adding a “What songs will you be performing” spot on the sign-up sheet. I’m kidding of course, but we have had so many good servers this year.
In other news the Shelter is about to begin its last month for the season. We close April 30. It is a difficult time for the men as well as for the staff and servers involved. I wish everyone everywhere could have a good home to live in, but life isn’t like that. So we do what we can and hope to do more for the love of Jesus which motivates us.
In the mean time I think I’ll go work on my mojo. Maybe the Coach will put me in this Spring.
That’s the news from The Men’s Shelter, on Phinney ridge.
