Janet (the host of the FFI) has been out after having had back surgery. But she’s “back” (haha) this week! Yea!

1. My back is in pretty good shape; I don’t seem plagued by the back problems that affect many men my age.

2. Man, let me tell you, back in “the day” when I was touring with “The Stones,” I did all kinds of crazy… Well… No, not really; I was never very wild.

3. Leaves are falling all around, and in only a few weeks I’ll probably be asking to borrow Pastor Dave’s leaf vac/shredder.

4. The one thing people never seem to forget is someone else’s forgetfulness.

5. Healing is usually a noun, but sometimes it could be a verb or even an adjective. Please use all three types in a sentence.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to an early gig with Three Button Deluxe, tomorrow my plans include time with the family in the AM and a romantic dinner with Susan in the PM, and Sunday, I want to get some time in the hot tub!

2. In the evening, I can frequently be found with my boys in the bathroom, singing silly songs about brushing your teeth up and down and back and forth.

5. I’ve got the car all loaded up with equipment to play my afternoon gig at the Blue Hill Fair this afternoon.

1. Music is rather important in my life. Ask me what I do, and I’ll say “I manage an Internet company.” Ask me who I am, and I’ll say “A musician.”

2. A big breakfast and strong black coffee is what I like first thing in the morning. (Usually, though, it’s some sort of high fiber cereal.)

3. The first thing I said this morning was: “Hey Honey.” I said it to my youngest, Matthew, who–like his Dad, gets up early.

5. It’s all been a little tricky to navigate, but perhaps clear water lies ahead.

3. Perhaps today you can make it a point to not get yourself killed by falling into a giant tub of hot dog emulsion.

4. This one time I spent the entire night in a soft bed under warm covers with the lights off; you gotta admit that’s true adventurer’s spirit.

5. Compassion is a word made from two Latin words: “com” meaning “with,” and “passare” meaning “no shoes on.”
