Goodnight Irene

"Sometimes I take a great notion to jump in a river and drown" sang Huddie Ledbetter in either an original or traditional ballad many years ago. Ken Kesey took note of Leadbelly's lyrics. Both nature and ourselves can be unpredicable.

By sheer coincidence I just last month had all of my trees trimmed, dead limbs out, and house overhangs removed. Of course that's no guarantee, but I can say goodnight Irene with the confidence that I did what I could.

I hope that all is well with any of you in Irene's path, and the power stays on. Hot beer and cold beans are not a desired diet.
