Today's small 100-square puzzle was inspired by this, this, and this. Oh, but especially lack of time. Busy with work, shopping, mead bottling (turned out damn fine and just in time for the festive season), and a gig with my band Buffalo Narrows this last week. The latter was a lot of fun, and not only because it was the first gig I had played in over a month. It was great because a lot of friends showed up and the place was packed, but mostl because Edmonton-based harmonica phenom and beloved member of the Buffalo Narrows extended family James Anderson dropped by totally unannounced and unexpected to sit in. And by sit in I mean steal the show, because that's just what he does. Case in point, check him out in the clip below.
Rock on James. Anyway, thanks for stopping in, and merry whatever-you-feel-like-celebrating-this-week.
More words, crossed and otherwise, next Tuesday
