6 years of this
This blog has been going for 6 years now. I've never had another one (other than my Jukebox, which I don't call a blog). I think that all topics are fair game here, but the ones I enjoy the most are about live music shows I attend, my cats (which have gone in number from 4 down to 1), the garden outside (MrB's project which is rich with bugs, birds and blooms year round), absurd news and headlines, and posts about Austin. This is a great town, my favorite of all the places I've lived.
Occasionally I comment on politics, but usually I just read the news until my head spins. It's hard to know where to start, hard to find the sanity. When religion becomes politics, it steps waaay out of line too. There's really nothing crazier.
Sometimes I hop up on the bar stool and rattle off a long old story about my past, my weird and dysfunctional family, or just some crazy crap that happened in the Sixties. Those are the therapeutic posts. It hurts to write some of them, especially about family, but if I don't tell my stories they will be lost. Even I might forget them someday.
If you are a regular visitor here, please feel free to de-lurk and say Hi.
