Thursday was an off night, but a time to catch up with the Buttonwood in Middletown. My friend, Kent, took over for Bob Gotta, and ran a fine open mike, allowing three songs (yes, three!) for the performers. I went second and did Cool Yule, and Mary had a Baby, and Three Ships. Ron played 12 string, Rick did a fine set, Stan broke out his 12 string, too, and Patty sang the blues. Got a little weird when an old rocker sat in the other room, and only came in for his set, and not a very good one, too. Full of his former self. Kinda sad. and a clueless jazz guitarist who thought he was hot who was not. Had to leave…..
