I was given "There There" by Tommy Orange by a Literature professor who knows of my Kanien'kehá:ka (Mohawk) ancestry.

Love Willie!
Have you ever been to one of his concerts? Absolutely the best. I've seen him a number of times.

I remember seeing him about a month after the 9/11 incident. After about 15 minutes with his band he started singing America The Beautiful, just him and his guitar. Behind the stage where normally he has a flag of Texas, the US flag was unfurled. He went on with a few more patriotic songs without stopping and the whole crowd was on its feet. The guy is magic.

Never seen him in concert, oh I wish I had. I will often tell Alexa “ shuffle Willie Nelson”. Poncho and Lefty was one of my father’s favorite songs and 7 Spanish angels makes me cry every time.

Wow, I haven't read "Catcher in the Rye" since college, I ought to dig out my copy and give it a read to see what I think of it today.

I'm almost done with a book called "Blood Brothers" by Deanne Stillman. This is a short but interesting historical book about the odd friendship between Sitting Bull and Buffalo Bill Cody.

It caught my eye in a local bargain outlet store. I paid the staggering sum of 3 bucks for it and it's turned out to be quite enjoyable.

Nothing better then a used book when the price is right. :)

Now I'm about 200 pages into a thick book (700 pages!) from my local library called "Scarface and the Untouchable: Al Capone, Eliot Ness and the Battle for Chicago" by Max Allan Collins and A. Brad Schwartz. It's a dual biography of a very bad guy and a good, honest guy and the carnage created by Prohibition.
Both authors are marvelous writers and the whole thing has been engrossing right from the start.

I'm revisiting Night Shift by Stephen King, which was one of the first horror books I read when I was a small human.

I'm currently reading two old but still very good books:

CASINO ROYALE by Ian Fleming (1953) - Yeah, the movies vary in quality but are usually fun. The Bond of the Fleming books is an interesting, very different guy and Fleming does a great job with James Bond's debut.

I'm also working on PET SEMATARY (1983) - I last read this way back in high school and had forgotten just how intense it was in places. Yeah, I plan to re-read more old Stephen King material in 2019. Great stuff.
