Doodads — cider and song plus

Two weeks ago not only did younger son and his wife volunteer at the cat shelter but my older son’s girlfriend was there.  It was a very pleasant surprise to see her there.  What was an even bigger surprise was today, when my older son showed up.  This had all of us  together (masked) face to face for the first time in months.  You cannot imagine the warm fuzzies I was feeling.   I’m not sure that convergence will become a regular thing but it felt wonderful today.

On the way home, I picked up a delicious veggie sub from Subway.  While I ate it I washed it down with Ace Perry Cider.  I bought a variety pack of cans awhile back and have tried several of these, but Perry is the one that sings with flavor.  It is gluten-free, vegan, and no added sugar.  I am being for real for real when I say that it tastes like drinking a pear.  So danged good!  Magners is still my favorite hard cider, but for a nice change of pace, this is the one.  Made in CA of all places!

ACE Premium Craft Cider: Keep This Cider Up Your Sleeve

After finding out the reality of Ryan Adams and his sleazy inappropriateness with others, I’ve been taking a break with the Songs that Strike a Chord.  This won’t be a write-up on a song but I’m sharing one that highlights the songwriting, storytelling, and musicianship of its author.  The song is “Beeswing,” by Richard Thompson.  Why Richard’s name isn’t a household word like Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Gordon Lightfoot or Harry Chapin is a mystery as he deserves it.  Without further ado:

    I was just listening to Beeswing yesterday. Always brings me to tears. I have always wondered why Richard Thompson is not more celebrated, but value the concerts in small venues that are a result.
    And I’m so glad you got to see both sons! My masked visits on campus most Sundays with my daughters are the highlight of my week. (K)

    I can’t wait to do that with my dad. I’ve only seen him through his fence about four or five times since March.
