TRIBUTE TO CLARENCE – MUSIC BY SWO8, PHOTOS BY MARILYN ARMSTRONG

When Leslie proposed this project to me, I wasn’t exactly sure how it would work out. It’s a bit early for Father’s Day but the song “Tribute to Clarence” by swo8 Blues Jazz from the album Osaka Time in iTunes, was written for her father, Clarence. They had an organ at home — at one point, even a pipe organ (I’m so envious — I love the sound of those pipes).

Leslie’s father built a special room to house the pipes. When he played that organ the house rocked! Clarence had two loves in life: music and his dogs. It was at the “dogs” that I came in because I have pictures of dogs, probably because we have four dogs now and have had five before. If we took in all the dogs offered to us, we’d have probably been able to register as a shelter, but we were up to capacity.

A fine piece of original jazz! The dog is Leslie’s “grand-dog.” The man playing the organ is indeed the aforementioned Clarence, Leslie’s dad. Enjoy!!

  1. I need to take more pictures of our dogs. I am going to buy me a camera, I am not going to put it up any longer. Great pictures, great video.

    • Thank you. Leslie did most of the work. I just had a lot of doggy pix. Lot of dogs. A camera is a good idea. You tend to get better pictures with cameras than with phones. And these days, a good little point & shoot can produce surprisingly high quality pictures.

      • I know I want one, but can’t make up my mind with one. I have an older digital camera and I have to replace the battery so often it’s no fun to work with. Now I am scared to make a wrong decision -again.

        • Email me. You have my address. Tell me what you can afford, what you like doing with the camera, and I’ll find you one in your price range that will do the job for you and make you happy. I promise. There are SO many to choose from and many of them are really excellent. Think about size, whether or not you will be shooting things far away like birds, or tend to do a lot of wide landscapes. Whether or not you’d like to have a camera that can grow with you and take more than one lens or you’d rather have something that fits neatly in your purse and can go everywhere with you. Also, think about whether you shoot mostly outside or inside, in bright light? Parties? Sports? There are a lot of great little cameras available and one of them (maybe more than one) has your name on it.

          • Well my dear, this is an offer I can not resist. I will bug you and send you and email. I do know what I want and will try to put it in words later on. I am not going to work this weekend, so I will have time. Thank you so much.

            • Just think about what you do the most, what you’d like to do, and how much you can afford to spend. And whether or not you are serious enough about photography to want more of a “real” camera, or you just want a quality compact. Not so difficult.
