This isn’t a picture of my kid, but she’s totally cute and looks like she’s having fun with that guitar, so I put her here. I had lots of fun playing new records for all the folks snowed in at home, this week. Highlights included good music for dancing, songs about poop, awesome rock bands with kid members, songs about being eaten by lions and songs about spiders. FUN!
