I had the most wonderful evening. I dragged myself out of my West Nile deathbed to join my longtime friend Rick at his home for an evening of "organic" music -- guitars, banjos, fiddles, mandolins, dawghouse bass guitars, slide steel dobro's, and all the bluegrass music and good fellowship you can fit into a mission style home in Huntsville's Five Points on a Wednesday evening. I haven't sung or played this stuff in ages, but it all came back so easily -- Jimmy Rogers, Hank Williams, Tim O'Brien, and when we're feeling especially blessed, Bonnie Raitt.

When the music is this good, life does not suck.
