Is it better to dump or be dumped?

The month of December started just yesterday but I’ve already seen enough to know that it will be a music-heavy month.

I’m planning a gig or two at the moment and did a little rehearsal last night. Spent some time reviewing old songs I used to know (Tom Petty, John Prine, etc.) but also learning a few new (to me) songs. I tackled “Just What I Needed” by The Cars and “Surf Rider” by the Lively Ones.

Excited to keep learning new tunes. Hoping to notch these before the end of the month.

Paddock Lake, WI
The sunset throws long shadows on the lawn.

Here’s a shot of the house some guy friends and I rented last month in Paddock Lake, WI. You can see from my rather long shadow on the left that the sun is setting behind me. From the boat ramp, you could also reasonably guess that there is a body of water directly behind me. The steep-roofed house to the left was abandoned but still fascinating.
