Swinging the Blues

One of David's favorite Chris Smither songs. I found this drawing the other day. David's mother, Helen, just sent a slew of old photos. This photo of the drawing is fuzzy but it's too late at night to re-do so I'm posting it anyway. There's new music---"Going Home", the tribute to Fats Domino, and, wow, an album of Fats himself. Thirty tunes. Both are very satisfying. I'll review the Going Home album soon. Must hear: Willie Nelson doing "I hear you knockin'". Must.
After ordering all this new music, the piper will have to be paid. The piper's name is Capital One Credit Card. His tune is not very nice.
