As Steve Goodman put it...

"Don't go lookin' for trouble."

Obscure, uninformative comment: I hope, I really, really hope that when there's more information about the news that tempted me to go lookin' for trouble tonight, it's accompanied by the relief of learning trouble hasn't found me or mine this time around.

The timing of that additional information is pretty much an unknown. It could be within a month or two; it could be a lot longer than that.

The good news is that I quickly moved away from web pages pointing to trouble-laden possibilities to YouTube videos of Steve's song, discovering a bunch of other good material along the way. For me, Josh White's version of the song is canonical, but the link goes to a full iTunes preview as I didn't find Josh doing it on YouTube or elsewhere. Here's Mose Scarlett and Jim Condie:



Red Molly's version, which lead me to also watching them do Fever.

And Steve Goodman singing It's Midnight and I'm Not Famous Yet, one of the few Steve Goodman songs that was a new discovery to me tonight. I didn't know there were any of those. Several YouTube videos of Steve at Austin City Limits sent me looking on Amazon, where I ordered the 2003 DVD of his concert(s) there.

I don't know that Steve Goodman ever released a bad album. There are albums with lots of song duplication, yes, but not bad albums. If you don't already have it, I most strongly recommend No Big Surprise: the Steve Goodman anthology no matter how many of the songs you do or don't have in your music collection.

To come back to the subject line only to careen off its side, I'm pleased the ultrasound I had last week was utterly, totally normal. Even better, the report was accompanied by those magic words, "no additional follow-up." I wasn't looking for or expecting trouble, though there could have been another biopsy in my near future. If there had been, odds are very high it would have turned up benign, just the other four I've had over the past six years. Instead, I may well finally be a fully-fledged crone. Win.

Yay for cronehood!

I was also just delighted to see your earlier post that Jinx seemed to like the food with salmon oil. Long may she lap!
