OMG trout right overhead!!
He greeted her every morning. I'd hear her call, sleepily, "MAAAAI. I need that smelly DOG." That was my cue to deliver the warm black and white bundle to her arms. They'd cuddle for a few precious minutes on weekdays, hours on weekends.
Thanks to Phoebe Thompson for the photos of me in the troutbubble.
And...RAIN CROWS ALERT!! Our band, The Rain Crows, performs Saturday, November 22, at The Adelphia Music Hall, 205 Second St., Marietta, Ohio. We start at 8:30 PM. Good for old folks like us! We'll have the whole six-piece band, with Athens' fabulous John Borchard on pedal steel, dobro and guitar. Though we're busy writing and recording, we don't get to play out very much, so please, if you can make this one, do it! Listen to FREE samples of our rock/Americana/roots music at
this link and this one, too. If you don't want to hear us after that, well, we're doin' it rong.
