Crazy Little Shack Beyond the Tracks


Here’s another card from Tina featuring the iconic Joe Head. What’s nice about the Joe Head is that Tina took the photo and did all of the manipulation herself. No interns were involved. She actually owns the icon! It’s kind of unusual these days.

This time around, I was obsessed with Sugar Shack by Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs. One of the local oldie stations would play a top twenty countdown featuring top selling records from a particular year. I think the DJ was Hy Lit, and he would provide fascinating trivial tidbits along with spinning the records. On one particular weekend, Hy featured the hits from 1963. Sugar Shack was among them, and although I had heard the song before, I couldn’t get it out of my head this time. What a wonderful, little pop tune. It’s just meant to entertain. Tina took note of my obsession and fit me with a beatnik chapeau and created the shack out of sugar packages. Expresso coffee tastes mighty good!
