a special Christmas gift

my 11-yr old son was very creative this year, hand making a gift for each of his brothers and his mom and dad. 

his gift to me was a 2-page handwritten letter, telling me why I’m his hero. 

  
I was/am just a bit speechless. 

O Tillerman, where art thou?

how many is too many?

  

today’s tunes: Peggy-O

word on the street is that The National is deep in the midst of a major project: a tribute record(s?) of 70 or more songs by the Grateful Dead.

here’s a little sample of things to come:

As we rode out to Fennario
As we rode out to Fennario
Our captain fell in love with a lady like a dove
And he called her by name pretty Peggy-O

sailors in your mouth – happy thanksgiving

hope you have a blessed day of Thanksgiving with delicious foods and fellowship with friends and family.

enjoy this, um…. strange song, performed by The National, for the TV show “Bob’s Burgers.

What’s that sound
It’s the gravy boat comin’ around
It’s not a Navy boat, it’s the gravy boat
Filled with bravery, savory sailor folk stuff
And sailors disembark
Fill our plates
Fill our hearts
Fill our hearts
