I am excited that John Prine released a new original album today, "The Tree of Forgiveness."
Now to figure out how an old man "buys an album" in this age.

This has been the most highly anticipated release in a long time. I think it's going to go up there with Johnny Cash's American Recordings which is at the very top of my list of favorite records ever. It's been getting a lot of play on my local station today and I am also thinking of actually buying a CD for the first time in about 15 years. They've been playing Summers End for a few months now.

Didja see this yet?

Back from Kraków late last night.

Highly recommend visiting Poland - friendliest, pragmatic people, serious food scene, and beautiful places to visit (if you have the time which we kinda didn't with work).

Also Global Entry is a nice thing to have for international travel back into the US - pretty much skip the Customs hubbub when lots of international flights arrive at the same time.

I've had over the ear headphones on all night and most of today.

Autoplay stuff at night to help mask the tinnitus and music all day todsy to calm and elevate mood.

Also went on an hour long walk whilst playing pokemon go.

Bought a new cowboy hat today. A nice wide-brimmed palm straw with a Gus crown.
Took it back this evening and exchanged it for one a skosh bigger.
