Winter Blues

Like everyone else, I’ve about had it with this winter, and the brutally cold weather of late.  Finding the strength to kick off the covers, get out of a warm bed, and take out the dog has been a daily battle.

 

But you know me.  I’m the eternal optimist, a glass is half-full kinda guy.  (Yeah, right!)  There are 2 things for which I’m profoundly grateful, and which have made the week bearable:   My remote car starter, and Boilo.  Lots and lots of Boilo.  Although, if this weather keeps up, I’m going to run out before Spring arrives. 

 

But that’s a problem for another day.  Now would be a real good time to nuke up some Boilo.  And I will, right after I say “hi” to Rob.  He sent me a note this week, telling me that he “stumbled upon” my blog.  (I’m pretty sure everyone who reads this does so by accident.)  Rob sent me a demo of a Jersey band called Acken Road.  Kinda reminded me of John Hiatt meets the Black Crowes, with a little Clapton thrown in for good measure.  Thanks for the tunes.  Now, onto the Boilo.
