Singing and walking . . .
David Joel and Band
I just met Carolyn Horn Motl, who has taken up a new career, promoting the Texas country music of David Joel and Band. They’ve been playing at The Grill, Starvin’ Marvin’s, Goodfella’s and Tequila’s, though Joel still keeps his International Brotherhood of Electrical Worker’s card and puts in a hard day’s work in a hard hat.
She pointed anyone who wants to hear their music to a YouTube search for David Joel Band Demo that proves what she says is right on: He’s talented, seems personable, and cuts a fine figure on stage.
Alzheimer’s Walk along the seawall
This walk falls at a great time. You can walk off some Thanksgiving abundance and prep yourself for the rest of the holidays. Join the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s at 8 a.m., Dec. 1, along the seawall. Start or join a team at alz.org/walk.
The past two times I’ve run into Port Arthur Mayor Deloris “Bobbie” Prince, she has been talking up this walk as a good thing in Port Arthur. Sharon DeJohn, with Order of Eastern Star, is a Port Arthur contact.
Best season of the year
What have you done with our precious days of just-about-perfect-weather? Walk in it, garden in it or take a walk along the seawall. It’s just too glorious to spend inside.
