And Now For Something Completely Different

Putting aside the pressing issues of the day for a moment, it’s time for a personal item. My 19-year-old son Nick, having taken up the guitar about three years ago at the urging of his old dad, has been writing music like mad. He spends most of his time playing his Dean Evo, but has just sent me a clip of himself playing a little Celtic-style ditty that he wrote a little while back on the 6-string acoustic. (Think Bron-Y-Aur Stomp.)

    Well, I wouldn’t want him to neglect his academic obligations…

    Good show, Nick! Tell your old man that your only “academic” obligations are to keep on keepin’ on (learning, that is).
