Work your fingers to the bone

What a lazy weekend!
I didn’t have any plans for this past weekend, and I was determined to stick to that.

It was a sweatpants, T-shirt, and whiskey in my coffee kind of weekend. Since the first of this year we have been working overtime at the plant. I suppose all of those extra hours have caught up with me. We have been warned that the overtime will increase soon and continue for several more months.

Work. It’s the curse of the drinking class. A necessary part of life for those of us not fortunate enough to have been born into money.

Wow! Great news about Bromberg. I saw him once in a club here in DC. He's a phenomenal showman as well as a great player & singer.

Greg, It IS great news. For the past twenty years he hasn't ventured far from his shop in Delaware. I caught his show and a small workshop with him at Floydfest last summer. It was worth the four hour drive, just to see Bromberg perform again.

Loved the Axton. What an incredible songwriting legacy! The guy has more talent in one finger... Great blog, and thanks. It's reassuring to hear REAL music being kept alive.
