my wife’s been in hospital since Friday.  my son and i wouldn’t have coped without the help of my brother-in-law, sister-in-law, niece and nephew – with school,  preparing and serving our meals, with setting the water so he can shower, driving us around and doing errends.   Her absence just underscores my uselessness.

i’m not against digital music downloads nor do i hate progress nor am i a Luddite, i just really miss concept albums.
