Several weeks ago I mentioned that my friend Barbara had created an erasure poem out of a letter I’d sent her. She agreed that I could post it. Hope you enjoy it even half as much as I do. I really groove on the creativity of my friends.
It’s come to pass that one of my coworkers got a job in Norway. Since he was moving and had little space to spare, I bought parts of his stereo off him on the cheap. I had hoped to buy his turntable in this deal so I could pass it along to someone who might want such a thing but lacked the budget, but it had gone walkabout. Instead, I picked up a receiver and set of bookshelf speakers. That means that I now have two working stereos in storage in my office. By itself, this is a trifle. When considered in the light of how much stereo gear I have at home, this is edging on becoming a problem. I’ve now got two really good rigs built only of cast off gear.
Otherwise, spring is on the way and with it, cycling season. The first event I’ve planned for the year is one I’ve been doing for a decade, the MS Ride. Its scheduled for Sunday, May 17th this year. My fundraising goal is $900. If you have the means and inclination, and as a way of saying “Thanks for all the music!” please click here to donate to my fundraising efforts.
I feel like you’d really be missing out if I didn’t supply a link to the latest album to catch my effervescent fancy, 1963’s MOON GAS by Dick Hyman and Mary Mayo
