I discovered more good music - Townes Van Zandt.
Why did you let me go through life not knowing about this guy?
And there you have it, folks. The reason I am unfazed by nasty e-mails from strangers is that all of my energy is required to defend myself from oppression by my own children. Long before I was failing to please all of my blog readers all of the time I was striking out in the Good Mother game. So I'm sorry, cranky blog readers, but you people are a dime a dozen and you're just the tiniest blips on my radar screen.
Tristan, I apologize for failing to provide you with the complete musical education you deserved. Yes, I did follow the Texas troubadours in my younger days (Oh! I don't think I ever told you about Jerry Jeff Walker, either) and "Pancho and Lefty" (Van Zandt's version, not Willie's) was always a favorite of mine. I really should have shared that with you.
