I can’t remember whether I’ve mentioned this already, but I finally invested in Wi-Fi for the Tumbleweed. Guests were asking for it, and I was getting tired of the dialup connection’s glacial pace, so we’re all high-tech now.
The primary advantage of this, from where I sit, is the fact that I can watch YouTube videos.
I thought this one was pretty great — and very appropriate on a wet, chilly morning in Coldwater, N.M.:
I like Neil Diamond. Something about him reminds me of my father, although I can’t quite put my finger on what it is.
I always thought Dad ought to cover this song, but I never could talk him into it. I don’t know why. He just said some things were better left alone.
