    My Back Pages

    Although a Dylan song, I always associate it with The Byrds… so it was nice to see Roger McGuinn lead-off all those greats.

    As usual, I'm dense. What are Youtube backpages?

    All I could find were Youtube videos about the Backpage website - not for the faint of heart!

    Yea, but 100 years from now keith Richards will still be here, he's not really human afterall...
    But more serious, the 70s now isn't what it was a generation or two ago. Most of those folks aren't quite retirement home ready yet.

    and behold - on this very day a PSI from Rod Stewart - probably more relevant to this distinguished company than many other forums.

    Who are all these youngsters?
    I'm missing my ukulele meetup tonight at the Horseshoe Bar due to a fierce cold. I tried to cure it by going fishing off the local pier. I caught 27 fish, all between 3" and 7". 24 Porgies and 3 tiny Black Sea Bass. All went back in the drink. My ribs hurt from coughing. At least I finished the front bumper of the Honda. You would not hire me as a body man but at least its all white now. I'll post closeups tomorrow.

    Are you still "down here"?

    Fishing in CT would seem to be... umm... unrewarding?
