In honor of...

...growing another year older tomorrow, I learned a song of Grant's that has grown very near and dear to my heart in the last few weeks. I find it uplifting. It gave me, among other things, an idea for a story, mere days after my plunge into the slough of despond not so long ago. I tried to stay true to the feel of solo Grant, rather than the Hüsker Dü original. I like the slower, more reflective tempo he uses now, though the original version is wonderful in its own right. Just faster and more electric than I am capable of reproducing.

Recorded on my Zen X-Fi and enhanced with Audio Editor Pro. I am by no means a "pro" when it comes to using this software, but I did manage to smooth off some of the sharper edges, and make it sound a bit less like it was recorded in my bedroom.

Hope you enjoy...

Happy birthday! And look how thin you are--congratulations! You've worked hard at that and it shows!

And I am going to go have to look up this musician.

Happy Birthday, Paula!

Love the picture!

Many people asking for you on Saturday. Know that you were missed. (there's no knitting at Sue's tonight, btw).

Wishing you many, many more happy years. ~ Iris
