I finally was in town for my first Buttonwood Open Mike of the fall. A fine night with good pals Cece, Ron, Rick, Ruth, Bob, Stan, Dave, …… I had been working on ‘CT 29th Regiment’, so I got to crank it out in front of real people, and got it closer to being real. It’s a tough song to pull off. I also relaxed with ‘Names to the Animals’ with my kids’ lyrics and my normal permutations. A good set, and a good time to reconnect with my CT roots.
