I’m just over 2 weeks now being Alcohol-Free and I’m in a bit of a ….FUNK!


I was born in Massena,  NY along the St.Lawerence river which borders Canada. (Living in Woodland Park, CO now).  My mother was actually born in Canada.  Anyway, I was a teen in the late 70s early 80s and listened to classic rock such as Zeppelin, Stones, The Who,  and Pink Floyd and occasionally that new band AC/DC. I liked all kinds of music really,  but CR was my thing.


Well as you know I’m AF and it’s been just over 2 weeks.  I hear that alcohol takes approx. 7 to 10 days to fully leave your body, so at day 13 a very strange thing took over me.    It’s Friday night and I’m home with my doggies, and all of sudden I have this urge out of nowhere to play that song “That’s the way (I like it)”.  What the Fr!ck???   or what the Funk??  I go with it since my whole body and emotions have been going in all kinds of directions.  I looked up who played it and found out it’s KC and The Sunshine Band and played it on YouTube.  Next thing I know I’m clearing the living room floor and doing some very bad grovin and shaking my booty.  I couldn’t get enough so I fired them up on iHeartRadio.

The songs just made me smile and have some fun from Get Down Tonight to Keep it Comin’ Love.  I still haven’t given up my classics though, but an old dog can always learn new tricks, right?

I’m digging this new AF FUNK. Thanks for all your support.

  1. Clever title, I was not expecting funk as in music, more like funk as in this is harder than I anticipated.

  2. Shake your Groove Thing!
    Every so often I mix it up – Disco, New Wave, Hair Bands… It returns me to a time when I giggled more and fretted less. Music is always in style!

  4. Awesome! I reckon they play funk in Heaven – it’s the one genre I don’t think I’d get sick of. 🙂 It’s good for a running playlist too, really puts a spring in my step. Gotta love a great bass line, eh! And congrats on two weeks, you rock!


  5. I love the image of you dancing to that song! Good for you! Congrats! 🙂
