Hi, LilyFestre. I hope you and the baby get well soon.

Did y'all happen to notice a recent link which showed - 5 beautiful people 5 - playing the same guitar? It was cute, but what I noticed was how deadly earnest they are. Not a smile, not even a twinkle of the eye for as long as I could stand to watch. Then a couple of attractive, healthy, well-nourished white males squinched up their faces and sang about how miserable their lives are. (not that I can understand the words, but we can tell.)

They took turns, of course, because being 25, they don't know how to sing together.

Man, I'm tired of earnestness. Everything is so damn earnest today. Music, home decor, TV shows, sports...

So I'm learning "The Blue Skirt Waltz" and "The Band Played On." If you go to YouTube and enter "Blue Skirt Waltz" you can actually see old TV shows with people singing, dancing and having fun. When was that last on TV?
