He Was a Friend of Mine

Grand Haven will soon be losing one of it's finer citizens. He's known by many monikers; the Rat King, Dr Shock's not so faithful sidekick, sargeant patches, The Beefy Arm's punching bag, Little Dan & Brother Dan. Brother Dan is off to greener pastures, in Indiana. He's got a better job, with a seemingly better boss to work for, better pay & he's closer to his little lady. He'll be engaged in six months. You heard it hear first.

Some birds weren't meant to be caged. The sun won't shine quite as bright as it used to, & the Pabst Blue Ribbons will never quite taste the same at JW's. I've known the little guy for over a couple years now, we've been to JW's more times than I care to admit, we've been to countless
concerts together, & I was on dragged along to one of his first dates with Jill. He even saved my house from going up in flames before I ever met him. We'll all miss him. Remember Christmas with Carl happens sometime during the week before Christmas. You've always got a place to stay at my place anytime you feel like coming up to Grand Haven.

Five Favorite Songs of the Day

Ashes of American Flags-Wilco, Yankee Foxtrot Hotel

Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie-Joanna Newsom, the Milk Eyed Mendor

some machines are dropped from great heights lovingly. and some great bellies ache with many bumblebees (and they sting so terribly).

It's All Over Now, Baby Blue-Bob Dylan, Grand Rapids, 2001

Ease Down the Road-Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Ease Down the Road

Baby's Got New Plans-Alejandro Escovedo, Thirteen Years

Happy Tuesday, friends!

I'm sad that you'll be missing Dan! Now, which Dan is that? The "assistant" Dan, or the other Dan?

Happy Thursday. It's a challenge keeping up with friends that move, but it can be done if two so wills. Dan the Hoosier.What's a hoosier?
