Just read online that Johnny Kemp died in Jamaica. Immediately, my mind flashed back to my days living in the Bahamas. I was there when the song “Just Got Paid” came out. We used to go to a club called Club Waterloo and the house band played the song often (and I liked the drummer :)). It was also on heavy rotation on the radio stations.
I’ve posted before how hearing certain songs takes me back…..way back. “Just Got Paid” took me back to 1988, in a great club on East Bay Street with friends who I am still friends with today. All these years I never knew he was Bahamian. So that explains why it was played so often.
RIP Johnny Kemp. It’s Friday night.
Saturday was Road Trip Day. I tossed my Samsung phone, iPad and Fuji Fine Pix camera into the bag. In the end, I only used the Samsung. I went from St George to the town of Gouyave in the parish of St John where I bought a delicious fish roti. Saw where Kirani James grew up. Man you gotta lift your hats off to his mother. Next it was on to Diamond in St Mark.
Grenada is a lovely island and exploring as a single female is very safe. I ended up in dead ends in Mount Granby and elsewhere. Check out all the photos on my Flickr page. At some point I will put captions.

This Legend of the Seas was in the Grenada Harbour today.
This is not normally my kind of show. Gruesome murders. Multiple in fact. Season 1 was a killer…pun intended. But I have stuck with The Following on Fox, starring Kevin Bacon. I can’t tell you what movies Bacon starred in and I can’t recall how I got to start watching it. Oh. I think it was a friend on Facebook who posted about it when Season 1 had just started.
Every Monday night I was glued. The writing is good, the acting is great and the casting crew really did a good job. All the characters are believable. Tonight was the premiere of Season 3. Just enough to whet the appetite.
Usually after The Following on Fox, I would then turn to The Nanny. Needed something light and trivial to get the gruesomeness out of my mind. But no Nanny, so the news will have to do.
Do you watch The Following? If not, you should start following The Following on Fox.
This was the year to be in Trinidad for Carnival. Pity I couldn’t have gone. The music was da bomb. Here is one of my favourites courtesy of the Sound Cloud software. Nice African beat. Makes me want to get a wide skirt and twirl around.
