The Little Things

Sneaky At a fat six months pregnant, our then four-year old Keely surprised the shit out of me one night by crashing on the couch super early.

Well, I’ll Be

SO Not Elderly According to this video (posted by TheFineBros via YouTube), I'm an elder. Hey, it shocked me too. My music taste is eclectic and usually depends on my mood at the time. I've always favored hip-hop/rap/r&b, but also pop/top 40, alternative/indie, classical/jazz/opera and rock (mainly from the 60s and 70s). Only listened to... Continue Reading →
