Comment:

My family is big on traditions and one tradition I want to carry on is passing along music to my nephews, as my uncle did for me. This is for the oldest of my nephews, who is not yet two (his mother, my sister, also has twin boys born last November so, yes, she has her hands full). We are going to visit them later today, so I wanted to bring a sorpresita for my nephew, who is also my Godson. It was a big of a challenge to find songs that could work with his attention-span and I'm sure I didn't succeed 100%, but based on how much he liked the Prine, Johnny Cash and Dylan from the copy of Redneck 10/Monkey 12 that Doowadette allowed me to copy for him, I think he'll like it.The album cover is a (better) copy of a thirty-five year old LP I still have.

How gracious of Doowadette to consent to your "borrowing" something of hers! You are keeping it all in the family. Rock on at any age!

chuck berry's "too pooped to pop" never sounded the same to me after i heard about the man's, y'know, predilections. also, "wee wee hours". you know what i'm saying i'm sure
