Just Busy, Ma.




So my mother finally got a computer. And she checks Burning Wood everyday. And she listens to the "Song Of The Day." And today, I hadn't gotten around to posting yet and my phone rang.

"Are you okay? Why didn't you write anything?"

Heh!

That's funny. I hope her computer is working alright. She had a little trouble last week. Good BB song too.

She beat me to it.

Better than, "Why did you move to Oregon?"
"We love it here. Would you rather we live close to you but be unhappy?"
"Yeah."

Ha! Well, we need to know then - which of your musical tastes came from Mom? And what music do you like, Mama of Sal?

From my Mama I got an abiding love of Johnny Mathis, Emmylou Harris, and "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World" by Charlie Rich. Right on!

A friend of mine has a musical comment that seems relevant.

"Tech Support for Dad."

The other day I got a LinkedIn request ... from my mother. Yikes.

Just warning you, Sal, our mothers do to Facebook what we did to our kids.

Re: Mom -- I'll pray for you.

As for "Busy Doin' Nothin'": a most important song in the BW canon. Simultaneously one of Brian's funniest and saddest songs.
