Musical Interlude

Sometimes mundane events that ordinarily you wouldn't give the time of day to, make their presence known and thus conspire to drive you absolutely slug nutty.

Yesterday was one of those days.

So in the interest of not only keeping everyone in a happy state of mind, but also to give me a bit more time to complete a post about a tree (yes, you read correctly), I bring to you Steve Martin. This particular bit comes from his "Comedy Is Not Pretty" album (I think), and for the next 20 years, was really my only exposure to bluegrass music.


  1. I've become more appreciative of this style of music as I've gotten older.

  2. I like banjo music. Steve Martin is a multi-talented guy.

    I hope this comment reaches you. I left one yesterday about Flugelhorn Feline but it's not there. Blogger must be screwing me over. AGAIN!

  3. :-o I never knew Steve Martin could play like that!

    Thanks for the entertainment - I will be sharing that with a few people who will be suitably impressed!

    Thanks, also, for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment on the A-Z Reflections post - hope you got to read the entire story! ;-)

    SueH I refuse to go quietly!

  4. Charles: I've grown to really appreciate bluegrass and Americana, and it bothers me to no end that when we'd switched cable providers they got rid of those two genres from their digital music channels.

    Debra: I didn't get that one yesterday, so Blogger definitely must've swallowed it whole. :D

    He really has some good quality c.d.'s out there that showcases his banjo playing skills.

    Sue: It was something that was part and parcel to his comedy act in the 70's/early 80's and like I said, he was my very first exposure to that kind of music.

    And you're more than welcome for the entertainment minute and for me dropping by.

    It's always interesting to see if someone can execute a challenge ike that, and you pulled it off quite well.

    I did read the story in bits and pieces, but I will definitely stop back to read it in its entirity.


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
