So… my wife drove to Springfield (IL) to visit my oldest daughter today. Naturally she took my car, which is a lot more comfortable for highway driving, and gets about 50% better gas mileage. That left me with the mom-mobile. Not exactly stylin’, but I can deal with it. Plus, the minivan is the only place we have right now with a working / connected cassette deck, so I took the opportunity to dig through my old tapes and listen to something from the past. Today’s selection: Chris Stamey’s 1987 release “It’s Alright”. Besides having some great songs, this album is notable because it came out the same year I became a father (to oldest daughter referenced above). Guess it’s an appropriate listen today, since I’ll be becoming a grandfather (via said daughter) in the next month or two!
And we'll seal the discussion with a semi-random photo taken not far from Springfield IL, from a few years ago:
