18 Mar 2021 Well, yes, full time caring as cyborg wife gets her new knee working (and physios are horrified that we have stairs). Done a tiny bit of listening, and finished the last collab (@sheilerk are you listening!!) which isn't up yet, but otherwise dead-in-water. It's been a good FAWM!

12 March 2021 All a bit frenzied with cleanups, hospital visits, furniture moving to suit a recovering cyborg, and a week of intensive caring coming up, so I'm now effectively dead in the water. I'll try to get to those still here I haven't yet heard, but it's basically going to fade away after today.

9 March 2021. I'm now officially married to a cyborg as Deb's knee replacement operation today was successful with no issues . Relief.

7 March 2021 About 400 comments left now and I'm about commented out. Problem is, listening/reading, one comes across really good things that spur you on. But I'm running out of time and the theatre is almost empty (when I get a bit bored, I switch to the FAWMers list and shoot the usual two or three per hour of spammers trying to come in through the bathroom window)

.6 March 2021 Okay, a moon voyage with Liz Petty that turned out okay, and another two thoughts which might or might not happen, depending on what the lyricists say. And lots of listening: I'm listened out for tonight...

5 March 2021 Catching up on my listening I wa away for two weeks, remember!) and I keep hitting lyrics I'd like to set but whenever I try out, it's cliche. I think I need to stop songwriting and concentrate on music for a while. At least I've cleaned u[p the worst shambles of recorders in the Black Hole. Now I have to find my original drawings from 1999 to develop the youtube vid of the whole thing...

3 Mar 2021 I've just been released from a @frogspawn induced period of sensory deprivation--two days he trapped me-- I can now go back to listening/reading, which will run for about a fortnight, I think, as I have a wife turning into a cyborg next week and need to stay around for her recovery.

1 Mar 2021 A mad scramble and i was able to complete FAWM, and my outstanding collabs, before midnight local time on the 28th Feb. Huzzah! But then @heavyhedonist belatedly appeared and there was a song that dragged me to the keyboard and recording gear. Still, not at the IDL yet so my conscience is clear.

26 Feb 2021 Yes the boat is back in the water. And I've got two days to finish FAWM in. Cripes. Ah well.

23 Feb 2021 Another 2 week FAWM. I should be able to DO something in two days' time. Right now, finishing the boat refit in the boatyard, and as the boatyard lads share tales, I learn I'm sitting in the midst of The Little Boatyard of Horrors. Broken dreams, overwrought expectations, greed, usury, corruption,stupidity...there is something that boats, especially big boats, do to the mind. I'm saving all that for 5090!

11 Feb 2021 The plumbing and bathroom are done (well, almost), the electrics happen tomorrow, am I free to go back writing and listening? Well, no, there's a boat to refit and re-insure before the next COVID problems hit and delay the now urgent repair longer. I will get one last week in February, by the looks... And perhaps this edit might stay up, if I hit right key for a change...

8 Feb 2021 I WROTE THIS ALREADY! Try to remember. Hiatus, yes, I'm falling behind on my listening, all work in progress is progressing backwards, anxiety and critical renovation work all happening at once. I'll see if I can break free for the 2 (later) days remaining to me between now and about Feb 23. At least I made a good starting run...

7 Feb 2021 Looks like a hiatus coming: fabrication needed tomorrow, Tuesday plumber, then prep for boat slipping which takes me away at the end of the week for a week. So I'm just having to throw things out there, especially things which are intended to be bigger things and which I've already spent half a yet-more-crises ridden day on without getting anywwhere. No even listening. Sigh...

5 Feb 2021 Today was supposed to be a serious recording session. But it became a meal of worms involving council rates, tenancy questions, tilers behind in tiling, plumbers ringing, COVID problems in the family, travel disruptions and all the other things one expects when sitting down to a planned recording session. Then Cheryl the morning coffee addict @writeandwrong put up a coffee meme which promptly finished the derailment of the intended day's recording, So one song which I thought I'd whip out before starting the main job which never got started, and one cranky coffee song I had no intention of writing let alone recording.

4 Feb 21 As expected, life is getting in the way. With a small window to record tonight, I blew it all on the Cruise Ship, which just sort of ate me. Far too long on it, even though there's only a couple of takes for the multiple instruments. The _intent_ was just to churn out a roughie. There's something about Andrew's lyrics though that tug at you, and I love this song. Perhaps tomorrow I can record what I intended. Then back to listening again!

3 Feb 21 Almost all spent listening to the ukulele offerings #fuc of world uke day which I'd forgotten until prodded. Some amazing stuff there. And it's only day 3 of FAWM for me! Just as well, though because all my FAWM plans have unravelled with lots of demands on my time. So I'm listening and writing as much as I can now. Cos I might not be able to later.

Still 2 Feb: MY GRAND PIANO! I've been reminded that my grand piano, in need of refit and restringing, will outlive me. Built in 1880, it's at 141 years and can go forever because the tuning system is entirely ironmongery, no wood anywhere. I've had it 56 years... I use it but not here, there's one string needs replacing, tuning could be picked up but mainly its tuned a quartertone down so's not to upset the old strings, some VERY old. It's not cross-strung (John Brinsmead & Sons) so should be good for recording but I only now have the gear to do so. Pianos are a nightmare to record...

Feb 2021 Ambushed by @scubed, it's WORLD UKULELE DAY, I'm reminded. So a desperate uke song as I've already been exposed re my studio somewhere on fb. But the Black Hole series has started very happily, if not wholly in unison. I'll continue on.

1 Feb 2021 FAWM is here! I did get one sad little instrumental out in the v v small hours, matched my mindset. House reno stuff only chewed up the morning. So having committed top recorders, I tried setting the first bit of the Black Hope of Pt Sturt and it WORKED! So that's recordered. oops. And there's a short three-stanza I've come up with, so that'll be a hat trick for starting: Instrumental, setting an existing lyrics, entirely new lyric and music. I should dismiss late night miseries and forebodings, right?

31 Jan 2021 GREAT plans for midnight tonight except...have to be up early Monday and out re house renos elsewhere. Ah Well, Mice and Men. Best laid plans etc. And the boat slipping in mid-Month looms large in my mind. Lets see what can be done,,,

30 Jan 2021 Oh wow, a HUGE shout out and plug in The Australian today (national newspaper) courtesy of motoring writer John Connolly. And now Flying Tadpole's Travelling Blues Band is getting some local play on local non-commercial radio.

28 Jan 2021 Hey, my profile is now Adelaide! I was soooo enjoying Barbados. How'd that happen?

27 Jan 2021 So tell me, how many other people in the world today while uncovering their septic tank (a) wipe out an entire ant city (b) get bitten by the local lizard for taking the roof off its refuge?

26 Jan 2021 New disasters hit, hope they won't muck up February too badly. OTOH the opera Ngurunderi is moribund but not yet dead. We'll see.

18-22 Jan 2021 MONDAY I'm dragged out of retirement and driven Adelaide-Innamincka up the Strzelecki Track by a madman in a Ford Courier with the AC not working.
TUESDAY I'm marching round and round a part-rehabilitated failed geothermal bore in century heat trying to remember what I used to do.
WEDNESDAY I'm driven back down the Strzelecki by the same madman who has wholly failed to repair his AC with WD40.
THURSDAY I'm chained to a computer till midnight, desperately trying to work software I haven't used for years. And banned from all alcohol until the report has gone.

One day of grace on Friday 22nd.
"quick thousand kloms up
yes, the desert is blooming
quick thousand kloms back"

17 Jan 21 The sailing was appropriate re physical terror and now the boat REALLY needs her 12 months overdue refit. And I'm off the internet yet again now, en route for Innamincka in the desert, a ghost from my past come knocking. Only for a few days though.

12 Jan 21 Gone sailing with grandson, two nights. All teenagers should have a few days of physical terror in their lives.

11 Jan preparing for 2 nights on boat with grandson, must take food...no internet...!!
Must take vodka...

11 Jan Just back from a mad dash to daughter in mountains, in case borders closed yet again. Left Monday, returned to border Sunday: as of Wednesday no entry without a number which is supposed to be sorted 7 days before use! Sigh.

My partner, colleague, defender and wife still vaguely wishes for a quiet and uninteresting life. It's the one thing I'm powerless to give her.


Tim Fatchen: nice, polite, quiet, writes serious and often soothing music, good dinner guest.

Flying Tadpole (songs marked [FT]): anarchic ratbag, writes irritating and often nasty satirical rubbish, good kennel cleaner.


You're clutching (smaller) money and you want to hear cleaned-up tracks from earlier FAWMs?? Go here:

Or Spotify: all the albums are there, search on Tim Fatchen or Flying Tadpole

FAWM and 5090 are the main part of the top row of CDs. Songs are available on iTunes, but it's cheaper via CDBaby and besides, I get more.

Broke? Starving? Some songs are on

    Thanks again for all your insights, really looking forward to learning more at 50/90!!

  • @klaus 6 days

    Hi Tim. Desperate last-minute "thank you"s are the best kind. ๐Ÿ˜€ It's so weird to have so little time to listen and comment. On the other hand, I never hang around after February. I always meant to but Fawm is so intense. 50/90 has always been my favorite. Cheers!

  • @cts  1 week

    ...and I'm so glad you did, my friend. Hopefully I can be around for 50/90. A lot going on but we'll see. I don't mind helping you make that coffee money! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @heid 4 weeks

    Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting on the lyrics to "Absence"! I had somewhat made peace with letting that song go unrecorded, but your encouragement is making me change my mind ๐Ÿ˜€ If all goes well, will be back in the next week or so with at least some kind of demo for that song.

  • @psyt 4 weeks

    Thanks for the comment on Feline Thoughts. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • @oswlek 4 weeks

    Thanks for the kind words on "Miracle" and "Candles", Tim. I really appreciate it. Feel free to use the email icon to shoot me a message and I'll reply with an mp3. ๐Ÿ‘

  • @wrenarcher  4 weeks

    Hi Tim. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my lyrics-only placeholder for "Come In From the Cold"
    Believe it or not, I've been desperately trying to work on coming up with music for it but the Muse is slow to give me anything. Then I had a conversation with my mother just the other day that... well, it was disheartening to say the least. She is not the person I remember her to be and it breaks my heart to think about it.

    Thank you again.

  • @donna  4 weeks

    Tim, thank you for your lovely comment on 'Close to the Candles'. It's possible we'll be fine-tuning the song, which is why it wan't downloadable. Bur You can download the piece now. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • @thedustcollector 4 weeks

    "partly because it's free" is a great reason. ๐Ÿ˜ Mike's already suggested Reaper, but I'm happy to try multiple DAWs and see what suits, really. I'll give Cakewalk a go too; thanks, Tadders. <3

  • @mikedebenham  4 weeks

    Oh, I wasn't trying to make some obscure dig against Adelaide, just lamenting the general lack of harpsichord venues in the modern world. Enjoying FAWM songs with a drink after work can mean the occasional cryptic (and not particularly helpful) comment. Sorry, Tim!

    Pretty decent harpsichord on your Privia. Complements the recorder well. I needed some baroque instrument samples for a project last year, so I'm looking for an excuse to shoehorn harpsichord into everything now. (Possibly compensating for my childhood: apparently I once defaced a harpsichord leg with a crayon.)

  • @gm7  4 weeks

    Thx for detailed comment's. I appreciate your reviews given your extensive FAWM history and musical skill I feel warm and fuzzy and I like Fuzz..
    Thx again.
    STAY SAFE. and a speedy recovery for your wife

    Hi. I doing 4 for all the tittater..hopefully that way I can to all of them. I have listen to 2 of yours before but i will listen to another 4 no problem.

    Thank you for your lovely comments! I am planning to get demos up this week for those two, work just threw me for a loop plus I got sick straight after FAWM! Will definitely ping when they are up!

  • @rainchaser  5 weeks

    Thank you for commenting on my song, "Please Treat Me Better". I really appreciate it!

    I'm trying to forget my awful past experiences with 50/90 I'm hoping to be there once again for this year.Thank you for your sympathies, concerns, and advices towards my past experiences. I really appreciate it!

  • @nuno  5 weeks

    Hi Tim - Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my songs. I really appreciate you taking the time. I'm glad you enjoyed them.

  • @ustaknow 5 weeks

    Hey Tim, - thanks for the listen! And comment!

    It sounds like?, - you may be referring to some thread challenge? I was a bit confused; but, hey, I get that.
    - Actually, long before that thread "challenge", there had already been Christian Christmas songs posted; not many since they don't get looked at and less and less over time, that circle of folks I know have commented.

    However, the "issue" if there is one for some folks, - is that we don't have a "Holiday" ? concerning Muhammad (Islam), God of the Old Testament - "Jews", Buddha (a philosophy), Hinduism, Druidry, etc. Why? (rhetorical)

    - I am glad every day, I am whom I am. However, when folks get intentionally, aggressive to facilitate krappolla about "it", - Christianity, "fake Christians" ๐Ÿ˜€ hahhh, - well, I can at least toss one in for the Lord ๐Ÿ˜€ or just me. (Not that He needs me to defend Him, - no, they'll get theirs from Him... I've popped popcorn and set aside beer for that "show" ๐Ÿ˜€ I think it's coming soon, from what I see.)

    So, Happy FAWMOVER!!

    And Happy Christ' Mass! (You said one time long ago, "Methodist", Organist?) I love those, - "part of the back wall" built into the building Organs! ๐Ÿ˜€ what a sound!)

    PS: I hope wifey is doing well!

  • @nadine 5 weeks

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting my songs. You're right about the piano vocal lines. That's the trouble I have as songwriter when the whole song comes into mind... in most cases I'm open to other phrasing. Sometimes singer come up with great hooks and sometimes I feel like mine was better. It's difficult. At least I didn't write a rap on my own this time though I had already half of it in mind. I figured out that these guys and gals have their very own flow and techniques.
    I'm psyched about the collabs!

  • @wolfkier 5 weeks

    ok, so 3 for 3. Cool. Thanks. I KNOW you'll enjoy so many of the other tit4tatters and they'll get a kick out of your stuff. Some amazing stuff I would never have heard without it.
    If you get a chance though, in a lul, I hope you don't miss my #6, Then Come Five. I think it might be best I ever did. Or very very damn close.

  • @wolfkier 5 weeks

    Tim, I've heard 3 of yours so far, I don't want to waste 10 minutes working out how many of mine you've heard this month. I'm thinking maybe 2 (?). I'll trade you whatever you haven't heard, 1 for 1. If you're interested, let me know the amount.

  • @crisp1  5 weeks

    By Some Miracle as a song: https://fawm.org/songs/120329/

    Thanks for checking out the lyric, Tim!

  • @cblack 5 weeks

    Thanks for the comment on Tears! It's definitely dark, but I'm not sure I'd call it goth. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it! It was definitely a learning experience!

  • @billwhite51 5 weeks

    Tim, thank you for listeniing and for everything you say. But mostly, thank you for the music, Your songs are an inspiration. I trustt all wentt well with yur wifes knee operation and she heals quickly and painlessly

  • @theseanovan  5 weeks

    Thanks for the follow-up. I added you as a collaborator to "Late (Again)." Can't wait to hear it.

  • @thedustcollector 6 weeks

    Tadders! You leave the kindest comments on--apparently, everything. Thank you for being so constantly and consistently supportive! I, too, wish it wasn't so demanding on me, although Mike (of debenham fame) recently pointed out that using Audacity for complex multitrack stuff is probably slowing me down a whole lot, too, so who knows? Maybe switching to a different DAW will make it easier.

    I hope the Debborg is doing okay after her surgery. <3

  • @theseanovan  6 weeks

    Hi, Tim! Thank you for your kind words on Late and One More. I got your message and I would love for you to take a crack at the music for Late. Iโ€™ve been hunkering down trying to get my demos in check, so any bit of help would be fantastic! Canโ€™t wait to check your stuff out, too!

  • @emkaydeebee  6 weeks

    Thanks so much for your comment on "Where I'd like to be" - you've nailed how I hoped it would come across, so that's really pleasing. I'm with you on the whole integrity of one-take performances.

  • @ayehahmur  6 weeks

    Hi Tim - thanks for dropping in and taking the time to listen to my songs. I really appreciate your thoughts. (I'm really attached to that pun though, damn).

  • @lyricslinger  6 weeks

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks for your offer to collaborate on 'May The Wind Blow'.
    Look forward to seeing what you come up with! I'll probably also post my lyrics on a separate music collaboration website. Just wanted to mention to make sure you are ok with that before you put effort in

  • @mal70 6 weeks

    Re MAD DOG WINDS, thanks for the reflections, Tim. I'm going to try drawing lyrics from it though will also keep it as a poem, with some slight tweaking.

  • @kathym  6 weeks

    Thanks, Tim, for the input on Courageous Dirty Work. We are in that point in life where cleaning things up in every way can only be good for us and for those we love. As I think about how I'd like to be remembered, I'd like to maybe tidy a few things up so that someday I will have become the person I would aspire to, with less complications and only focusing on what really matters, even though at this point, so many of life's big questions have been resolved. Doing more tidying up can lead to a more peaceful existence to offset whatever may not have transpired. I so much appreciate your thoughts.

  • @rainchaser  6 weeks

    Thank you for commenting on my song, "Please Treat Me Better". I very much appreciated it! It's due to poor time management that I haven't been putting out this fawm. Some unexpected things did happened to me that distracted me this year.

    I also appreciate your thoughts and sympthies on my past FAWM and 5090 experiences. I have pretty much forgotten those grudges by now I think. Also, thank you for your encouragement on for me to move on, I very much appreciated that!

    Also, sorry I didn't comment soon enough unfortunately I had to deal with hardships this month which were unexpected!

  • @lyricslinger  6 weeks

    Thanks for reading my 'May The Wind Blow For Us' sea shanty lyrics, and for your kind comments. Great to hear that you could imagine it as a song

  • @berni1954  6 weeks

    Glad you liked my "Cassandra". I have a soft spot for the Trojan Women. each one of them deserves a tragic song.

  • @scubed  6 weeks

    Tim, thank you so much for your wonderful comments! ๐Ÿ˜Š I really appreciate it. Iโ€™m still catching up with listening and look forward to dipping into more of your music soon.

    Good wishes to your wife for a quick recovery and to you for a restful autumn!

  • @ianuarius  6 weeks

    Hey man! Thanks for the listen on Recover. It's so fun to read your comments. ๐Ÿ˜ Hope you're doing great!

  • @petemurphy  6 weeks

    And also...

    Thank you for all of your help and advice over the years. Although we're not in regular contact, you have been one of the most helpful people in regards to my music. I remember always being apologetic about my voice and how much my songs sucked, and although I still struggle in lots of areas, you've been so helpful.
    Thank you!

  • @petemurphy  6 weeks

    Yes, Tim. I say definitely do it.
    I ended up giving Lyns so many songs that they wouldn't fit on a CD. I put them on one of those little usb thumb drives (so she could listen on her laptop, or put it in the slot we have in the car).

    It was very well received. She really loved it, so thank you for your encouragement.

    I say... Yes yes yes!!!

    I hope it all goes ok with your wife's surgery.

  • @highmountain 6 weeks

    Howdy, thanks for entering Cowboy Land! Glad you could leave with a more favorable view. I'll see what I can do about that lonely ear. Maybe I should reconsider that "cowboy" tag. Even though I'm stuck in the 19:th century.

  • @quork  6 weeks

    Hey, what songs would you suggest I listen to. Lots of choices here, you crazy productive FAWMer.

  • @quork  6 weeks

    Thank you, Tim, I appreciate your comments, and the quote on @jonmetaโ€™s great gospel song.

  • @petemurphy  6 weeks

    Hiya Tim. That's great. Yeah, give me a shout when it's up on YouTube.
    And yes, of course you're free to use the doggie pictures as you wish. I've probably taken lots more since those ones, so if you need extras just let me know.

  • @emkaydeebee  6 weeks

    Thanks so much for your comment on Questions! Iโ€™m glad it conveys the loss for both parties, thatโ€™s very much what I hoped when I added the harmonies to Alexโ€™s super song. Ooh, and just to say, itโ€™s a full on harp (as in my picture) as opposed to an autoharp! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • @dustymason  6 weeks

    Thank you, Tim. Iโ€™d LOVE to make a demo! May-haps. Carpal tunnel surgery on both hands should not preclude me from, at the very least, commencing to push on some keys to cobble together a representation. I very much appreciate your reflections on Worldโ€™s End.

  • @crisp1  6 weeks

    Tim, thanks for your comments about The Sapling and Where I Want You. It's cool that you "dropped by" because I'd just been thinking about you and had even gone back and played Every Song I Sing, which you did with me for last 50/90. Wonderful tune. I'll come back and give a listen to some of your work over the weekend.

  • @ofishell  6 weeks

    Thanks TIm and that is a very good question. I am leaning more and more towards pianos in my tunes as i simply love playing it and reckon they sound beautiful. Bring on Piano binge

    Oh, and I totally agree with you about @Bernie! Heโ€™s amazing, and Iโ€™d be up for more collabs with him anytime. And, The Gypsy King is still on my playlist too! Itโ€™s a favorite! It would be great to put our heads together for something new.

  • @sheilerk  6 weeks

    Hi Tim. Thank you for visiting my page and taking a peek around! ๐Ÿ˜Š Am I putting music to the later ones? Iโ€™d certainly like to! Hard Hope has someone interested, but the rest are fair game right now. If youโ€™re interested in giving some music to Promise Rings and Diaries Iโ€™d love that!

    Thanks for visiting Perfection and Introverts Paradise. I definitely enjoyed my collabs this year and they encompassed all my fave genres too.

    death is romantic to the young, when it is still abstract and far off, and provides hefty metaphors for the both the collapse of trivial love affairs and the eternal vows of true love. as we near death, we withdraw into memory to distance ourselves. from the now unpleasant reality of the theme.

    Not my first win but the first win with 14 completed songs with audio posted before the cut off. Congrats on your victory, I know you had a lot of limitations this year. How is the boat?

Thank you very, VERY much for this wonderful song, it is a great honour and pleasure to me every time anew...

    You're on.

    Thank you so much for commenting "Hallo Angst (Hello Fear)"! And sorry for answering that late - I had a lot to do and some technical problems, too ...

  • @pearlmanhattan  8 weeks

    Mr. Fatchen - I've sent an email - however I worry I'm being rude - as I'm unsure of your schedule - no panic or rush - no expectations here - just wanted to give you a first glance at something .. I have news of our Chicken friend. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • @thedustcollector Feb 17

    <3 sorry about not getting back to you earlier, Tadders--I kind of disappeared into a black hole of mope for a bit. Thank you for caring and being sympathetic, though--I really appreciate it. Hope the boat and the electricity are going okay!

  • @ceilidh  Feb 16

    Thanks for your kind comments on "Low Expectations" - the music is now posted for listening.

  • @gb9  Feb 15

    Thank you so much for you wonderful suggestions and perspective on 'Fool Again' your observations are really helpful. It was the most wonderful feedback. Thanks again.

  • @moonraccoon  Feb 15

    Tim, thank you for your feedback on Auburn.

    I dig the journal-style you've got going on in your bio. Agreed: always pack alcohol. I'm currently on a beer break until my order is delivered on Thursday. Running out was intentional, as a test to see whether I need it, or just want it. Because if I have it, I drink it. (Don't seem to need it, more like I get bored waaay too easily.)

  • @scubed  Feb 15

    Thank you so much for your generous comments on โ€œWolf Songโ€! As for the wolf bark, that came about because Iโ€™m not much of a whistle player. ๐Ÿ˜ At about 3:40, thereโ€™s a spot where I flubbed a note. I decided I liked the effect, so I didnโ€™t clean it up.

  • @kingwoodkowboy  Feb 15

    Cheers & Howdy Tim, downunder. Thanks pard, for reviewing "September Sunset."

  • @pippa  Feb 14

    Hi Tim Fatchen. This is just a quick note because I've seen you talk about borders. Is that between South Australia and Victoria or something? because of covid? I just finished a book by Bill Bryson called In a Sunburnt Country, about traveling around Australia, and thought I'd mention it, if you haven't read it, you might like to, it is full of fascinating facts and sometimes he can be very very funny.

    lol, please accept my humble for apology for dragging you into a collaboration about a forum post indicating you would not be able to tackle your collaborations.

  • @jsini  Feb 13

    Thank you

  • @corinnecurcio  Feb 13

    Hiya Tim! So glad I am retired I have more money than I had before - and I'm not quite as stressed out, though it's no fun having to stay close to home!

  • @spazsquatch Feb 13

    @timfatchen, which โ€œclever lyricโ€? Do you mean the bit in the forum thread where I riffed on you post? If so, Iโ€™m just glad it was received in the spirit I intended. As far as Iโ€™m concerned you wrote it, I just edited out the stuff that that didnโ€™t fit the melody.

    But if you put it to music, itโ€™ll put a smile on me.

  • @sightlikeabee Feb 13

    I am not sure how you managed to edit my comment...maybe you were in my house? I think I fixed it...thanks for stopping by...i am going to dig into your tunes...

  • @jsini  Feb 13

    Thanks for commenting on Why did you bury me only 2 feet down. Though it is peculiar that you commended word for word of the guy who commented before you. Bizarre. So bizarre.
