And the week ends much as it began, with me aching and sneezing and unfocused. The Texas Gal took the day off from work yesterday so she could have a four-day weekend to get the gardens rolling. And once the gardens are tilled, the first task is putting up the fences. The pounding of fence posts, maneuvering of rolls of fencing and all the rest is one of my few required garden tasks each season. I can’t say I’m fond of it, but it needs to be done.
But this year, it’s left me more sore than it has previous years. And that aching – along with the sneezing from accumulating pollens outside and my own internal malaise that’s been befuddling me this week – has left me in a difficult place.
So I’m just going to retreat today and call this week here in the EITW studios a mini-vacation. Before I go, here’s Jorma Kaukonen and a track from an album I’ve thought about for a long time but never got around to finding until this week. And it’s a tune that I’ll be digging into next week. Here, from Kaukonen’s 1974 album, Quah, is “Another Man Done Gone,” and it’s today’s Saturday Single.
