This month was a little tougher. Though, there is some good music out there about getting older. In some cases, about not getting older. I think aging has done me some good, I still think I’m a lot smarter than most of the people around me, but I’m wise enough to know how stupid that sounds. In a lot of ways as long as I keep moving getting older is just another step on my path to… whatever it is I keep trying to reach.

Remember, September is coming, which means Swappers Day, in Johnstown, official slogan; “If you can’t find it at Swapper’s you don’t need it.” So if you need something let me know and I will keep my eyes open.

Suicide is Painless by Johnny Mandel

Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce

    I vote for Forever Young. That song tugs on my heart strings the most.

    Time in a Bottle – because the 10 year-old me who first heard this in ’73 has just about the same music tastes, 50 years later.
