After years of often daily attempts at humour and virtually any stray thought I could snare on my keyboard, I'm changing the name of this space from Such Is Life, to May I Present:.
That should still allow me to post on a wide variety of topics, but steer the focus for readers to my most common writing efforts now, on Folk, Roots, Blues & Americana music!

Sleeping With A Hanger....
Yes, you read that right - last night, I was sleeping with a hanger...
We spent the night "holidaying at home" last night, staying at a local hotel to attend Mrs. That Dan Guy's Winter Soiree (would that be a Christpast party??).
I won't name the establishment, but we spent most of the night trying to survive a thermostat set to steam clams, even after we had shut it off completely. This morning, with a window open and the heat shut off, it was still 74 degrees Celsius in the room. My toupee was wetter than a tea bag in a pot.
Making things even more fun was waking up every few minutes as my foot grazed what I thought was a spring popping through the sheets from an exploded bed coil. Or a discount bed of nail.
I discovered this morning when I pulled back the covers that it was in fact a hanger, under the sheets.
Not with any clothes attached, just an empty hanger, under the sheets. We made a note to ensure WE left a tip for housekeeping - rather than have the next poor bastards find a severed horse head under the covers. Yikes.
Back home now, running a little late, but looking forward to crawling into our own bed (sans surprises) tonight...
