schmin's on the gee-tar

Went to Bakersfield to see this dude today.

He's teaching himself to play guitar, and damn if isn't sounding pretty good. So good, in fact, that I was moved to make up lyrics while he played. They went like this:

We need peace
No more war

What are we
fight-ing for

Bob Dylan, eat your heart out.

Schmin likes Bakersfield a lot, and we had a wonderful time together. Froggy was there too. And so was you know who, who acts like we never met.

Tomorrow I'll post about the trip, which yielded unexpected delights. One of which I had no business participating in. (Not that delightful. Get your mind out of the gutter!)

Since writing for the stage is one of my thangs, I'm rather found of this quote about Houston:

It has the second biggest theater district in the US.

Now look at that. Playing the guitar. Can't wait to hear more.

Ooooh! Mira's name has changed to Voldemort!

Your blog makes it hard to not be a fan of the Schminn. Seriously.

I hope to hear more about the guitar playing....

Mira is a true heartbreaker! Imagine not running up to you with a wagging tail. Did you sit on a couch so she could climb to your neck?

Hope you took lots of pictures whilst you were in Bakersfield.
