Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

Terrible! Terrible! I haven't blogged for a month. Surely even an old guy should find something to say in a month. I've been catching up on reading other blogs. One such mentioned the writer's favorite CD for the year. I don't know that I could name my favorite but I've been listening to several good things in the last week or so. I felt in the mood for some vibraphone music and pulled out a Modern Jazz Quartet CD and listened to Milt Jackson. I decided to follow that up with other vibe players. Cal Tjader came next, then Gary Burton, then Lionel Hampton and Dave Samuels.

Recently I replaced my turntable. The old one went kaput. Now I have access to a rather extensive collection of LPs. Yesterday I suddenly had a yearning to hear some Atlanta Rhythm Section, a rock banmd from Doraville, GA in the 70s. Fun to hear them once more in a live concert. The record is called Are You Ready?

Well, that's it for now. At least I've put down a few words. Maybe I'll write more often if I select mundane topics.

Nice to know someone else still plays those old slabs of vinyl.

Glad to see a post from you again. I play my records from time to time. I love every pop and hiss.
