THE OLDER YOU get, the faster time flies. And it's blown by for us at Second String Music this year.
I'm trying to remember highlights. Lots of great Cheeseburger and Pepper Spray gigs. A trip to Canada and a family reunion. Emily graduating from Western Illinois. Tucker arriving. Staring at the Newcomb Hotel fire from the roof of our building.
Making a video with Table 16 Productions.
All the great people who make hanging out in a music store memorable.
The end of the year is tinged with sadness after hearing about Hancock County State's Attorney Jim Drozdz. He was killed Saturday night in a truck accident in Georgia. I got to know him a bit during my crime and courts days at The Whig and I liked him. He always returned phone calls and told me what he could, and was up front and honest.
See ya, 2013. We'll kick you out during our Cheeseburger show at The Elks, and bring in 2014 with hope and a couple of days off to recover from Christmas.
Have a safe New Year's Eve. You know where I'll be most of the time in 2014!
