beast at bay

I remember looking at the sky through the moon-roof of my car and seeing the vapor-trail of a jet going nowhere fast.   I thought, "what am I going to do with myself when I get home this beautiful Friday afternoon after a hard day defending insurance companies?"   I was answered by hard-driving rock 'n roll coming out of my garage, down the driveway, through the moon-roof and in to my ear canals.   The band formerly known as HEARING IMPARED [sic], GILDED LILLIES , THE LOONS , THE SPERM WHALES , and now SURRENDER DOROTHY (my idea) were just a-wailing.   A true garage band those lads----Henry, Shane, Brett, and (newcomer) Josh.   I sat on the patio and shared both my pretzels and the music with my faithful canine friend, Shelby.   I can't say something like "it doesn't get any better than this" because, frankly, it gets a LOT better than that.   Just not for me.   But it was all I had at the moment.   And it was good.
