Last weekend at the lake was great – coming back to the cold slap of reality … not so much.  I’ve been struggling for inspiration on this thing as I sort through a bunch of nonsense in my real life.  Nonsense resolving, though, so hopefully I’ll be better.  Until then, here’s a potpourri lyric quiz.

Got answers? Send them my way.
