Goodnight stars; Goodnight air; Goodnight noises everywhere.

So Margaret Wise Brown ended her classic childrens book Goodnight Moon, a bedtime book for the ages.  Until I received a message from Charlottesville musician, Keith Morris, he of The Crooked Numbers, I had never heard the name nor knew of the book, to my knowledge.  How I missed it I don’t know because not one person of the multitude I asked later was ignorant of its existence, though few recognized the name.

Even with the best of intentions and scads of hunched-over-the-keyboard typing frenzies, I have failed to deliver. I will be posting it over the weekend between Jaimie’s and Roxanne’s, who are always on time and make me look even worse than I am, and I promise you a crackerjack read. In the meantime, look at this picture of the NRA’s latest Mascot, Billy, The Open Carry Goat…whose name, oddly, is Ryan.
