New sofa and a comfortable CD


My wife took today off, a good idea as our plane got into Seattle at 11:45 last night after a quick trip to New York to visit our nephew Jake and the rest of her family. She was also staying home to receive our new sofa. I can't wait to try it out. I mean, I tried it in the store, but it just isn't the same as kicking it in front of the TV, sinking in and relaxing. That feeling can only be created in its true enviroment. Soon, yes very soon.
I also bought the new Bob Mould cd, District Line. I have followed Bob Mould since I won tickets to see Husker Du on the radio when I was in high school. I have seen all the incarnations of his solo bands and Sugar over the years, so I guess I am a fan.
To me his solo work is very comfortable. This cd has a good mix of influences of his past works. Yet as always I feel it has progressed into something different from them as well. I like the way he includes his electronic side with his punk roots. I would suggest this to old fans and new converts.

I'm listening to the new Bob Mould now, and although Workbook will always be my fav, I am enjoying this one as well.

The new couch was luxurious last night, it's definitely a step up from our old one. Looking forward to many years on it!
