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…..
