The Trump(et) sounds

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

And now for something completely different!

We are entering a new (or at least not experienced by our generation) era in American politics. It is my prayerful hope that all of us make the most of this, seeing it as an opportunity not a defeat or disaster. As I wander off into my particular sunset I can look back and, stifling a giggle, wave a cheery "good luck" to all those I leave behind.

Happy trails!

Born a while ago. Grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, wandered a lot. Lived in SF Bay area 26 years. Gonzo bicyclist, now ride motor cycles. Travel a lot (thats the same as wander a lot when you're a geezer) There is only one way to play a banjo and that is the way that you want to play it no matter what the banjo nazis say. At 81 I am calling myself 'The Oldest Banjo Player in Franklin county". As far as I know.
