A Stolen Moment or Two

My computer crashed Tuesday Night, leaving me essentially blogless. However, Mrs.has gone out to alleviate some cabin fever, leaving her computer available, so here we are.

It’s been quiet here for the past couple of days. The plan had been to make our annual pilgrimage to Lost-in-the-Woods County, but the Spawn got a bug, so we remain in Mondoville. She has recovered nicely, though, so one more thing for which I’m thankful. I used the non-travel time to grade papers, which leaves me at par with about 75% of Gradeapalooza remaining. Given that I’m also eight days away from my first bar gig in about 17 years, this should make the next week lively indeed.

In any case, though, I remain thankful for a great deal. I’m thankful for the fact that some folks think the things I do are worth paying for. I’m thankful that Snubnose has been willing to take a chance on my other work. I’m thankful for good friends, good music, and the occasional intersections thereof. And above all, I’m thankful for my family.

And of course, I’m thankful that there are some of you who are interested in what a goofball like me has to say from a place like Mondoville.

Better late than never, right?

    I’m sure I’ve dropped a stitch here or there, but I want to hear more about The Berries.

    Last summer, my Old Musician friend wrote to tell me that he’d come across tapes he’d done in the Seventies, for an album that never quite happened. At the bottom of the box, he found a reel, dated a decade earlier, a date he remembered as being two nights before his wedding night.

    When he finally got around to playing it, some months later, he found that it included an exceptionally raucous rendition of “Open Up Your Door”, recorded at a party shortly before his first marriage. (Cough.)

    And now that I have a remastered version, I will say — “It wasn’t as bad as I might have thought.”

    P.S. Tape your performances. You never really know.

    Well it appears the number of people interested in blogs from Mondoville is many orders of magnitude greater than those interested in blogs from Legon.

    Otto —

    A year or so ago, I gave you a more or less hidden link to an Anthony Bourdain show on where to get the very best food — on the cheap — in Ghana.

    Blog comments do not often get more “interested” than that.
