into the cellar.
Thx anyway. Although, cellar.
It’s been damp, so the cellar doors are really hard to open. It got easier after I figured out my wife locked them before she left with the kids.
They come back tomorrow. I was supposed to go with them, but I have to do some entirely inane work at the office tomorrow, for an hour, that I am not good at and which someone else could easily do, so bye 3-day weekend, catch you later.

(great collection of old 78s, btw):
I have great respect for the hobos that Jack Kerouac describes in “On The Road”, you spider sounds like one of those

Oh and here is a cool website on hobo art, apparently they draw and paint in addition to singing:
