Just to catch you (my two readers) up on the soap opera, our nickname for our son is The Bird. The Bird off and on has liked the following bands:
Blue Oyster Cult
Toad the Wet Sprocket
The Bird has added a new artist to his favorite playlist--Johnny Cash--The Man in Black. You just haven't lived until you've seen a 10-year-old boy (in his case wearing nothing but underwear and a blanket singing:
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
Before he sings, he inhales deeply, then exhales as he sings at loud decibels, and holds the last note for what seems like 12 minutes.
Listening to The Bird it occurs to me: Johnny Cash was a good singer.
